How Do I Find Commercial Singing Opportunities?

How do I find opportunities to sing for commercial promotions/productions? There are often vocalists/singers used in radio and television promos, lottery commercials, product and business commercials, film soundtracks, etc. Is that kind of work being done here in Washington? If commercial promos are handled by independent production companies, could you tell me how to contact them?

Most major recording studios in the area do the business to which you refer. AskMike will forward a list of production companies specializing in that type of work.

In the mean time you could call area studios for suggestions to get you started. Check your WAMA Pages in the Studio section. Washington, Baltimore and Richmond are filled with many advertising agencies that handle both local and national advertising clients. The Federal Government, state governments, county governments and private industry produce tons of documentaries and instructional videos.
