Unfortunately, JRA is not able to accept demos, lyrics or songs in any form due to copyright issues and legal liabilities. If you are an aspiring songwriter, the Gospel Music Association is a great resource for you.
JRA currently partners with artists that are signed to a major record label that offers national distribution and/or a professional management company capable of facilitating that relationship. Because JRA’s booking reach is national, we also require that the artist have national radio airplay and national distribution, which is why the label component is so important. Without these pieces, JRA’s value in a partnership is diminished for an artist, as it truly requires a team approach for everything to work to the artist’s full benefit.
