COMMON QUESTIONS
What is Isina?
ISINA is a worldwide music talent search that opens opportunities for artists in all corners of the world. We bypass the traditional time-consuming pathways for artists to be discovered, streamlining your route to the power brokers – labels, A&R executives, booking agents – who can help you reach your full potential and audience.
Who runs Isina?
ISINA was created by music industry executives and producers who were tired of waiting for new talent to show up at their doorstep. We believe there are a wide variety of talented musicians with the potential to captivate audiences across the globe. Our experience in "the biz" spans across a broad range of styles and genres, and Isina is how we intend to discover the next big thing in music.
What file formats are acceptable for uploading my track?
We accept a variety of common digital audio and video files for submissions. Your track must be no longer than six minutes in length and can be uploaded using one of the following formats

- Link to YouTube Video
- Link to Vimeo Video
- Link to SoundCloud Audio
- .MP4 / .MOV
What do I receive for my $30 application fee?
In addition to having a chance to receive ISINA's six-week, all-expenses paid music mentorship in LA, applicants will get the unique opportunity to be heard and reviewed by the best of the best in the music industry. Previously, music hopefuls might have to spend money to travel to auditions or tryouts. With ISINA, applicants are given the opportunity to have their music discovered by industry professionals without ever having to leave the house. Your $30.00 application fee will make sure Isina professional music reviewers are compensated and cover platform operational costs.
Who reviews and rates the music that I upload?
Highly trained professional musicians from each ISINA department will evaluate your work in three main catagories: uniqueness of style, potential for stardom, and overall artistry. If your review places you within the Top 300 applicants on our ratings leaderboard, your track is guaranteed to be listened to by one of our department heads (celebrities such as Kenny G., Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds, and Walter Afanasieff), who will make a decision with their team about choosing participants for ISINA's next six-week music mentorship program.
Can I upload multiple tracks?
Yes, you can upload as many tracks as you want! Not only will this help our mentors evaluate your talent, but it will also help you get into the Top 300 applicants on our ratings leaderboard. You also have the opportunity to upload one track to be reviewed by multiple departments. For example, if you wrote, performed and produced your track all by yourself, we can review your work in three separate categories. You may even receive a higher rating in one category over another, increasing your chances of becoming a star!
How can I move up in the "Top Ratings" leaderboard?
Making it into ISINA's Top 300 is hard work, but it will guarantee your celebrity mentor will hear your track. Some tips on working your way up the leaderboard include:

- Fill out your artist profile completely. Only profiles with 100% completion rate have found their way in the Top 300.
- Upload 1 or more audio or video tracks.
- Get likes and shares by colleagues and friends on social media.
