Guitar music labels

Hello,

can someone recommend USA based guitar music only labels (instrumental rock, acoustic nlyon guitar with a bit of latin percussions) which are looking for new talents and demos?

My friend tried Schrapnel and Candyrat, sent them demos, 2 months passed, they didnt even listen to the demo albums (soundcloud link which is private, 0 listen)? Or good old demo cd is needed? I mean, who the hell sends demo cds these days when you got internet? :/

Any help is most appreciated. Guy is extremely talented guitar player, with loads of experience but he never ever recorded his solo album before...till now.

Thank you!

Maybe I'm wrong.... but...
I think that the generic "send the demo around" era is quite finished.

Now you have the "send the demo IF"
--if you have a "friend" that can do a phone call to someone in the label to introduce you
--if you get in contact with someone in a label, for example in an event or party, and you can speak with him
--if you have x-thousands youtube followers or spotify streams, and the label talent scout contacts you showing interest
--if you do live concerts that are so good that are shaking up all your local zone audience, and a talent scout picks you
--if you can seduce someone in a label and get into a relationship...

Or simply going unsigned and indipendent until something happens.

You know spotify is only 0.007 per stream.
Big moneys are gone away, but they receive thousands demo per day...
The equation is not balanced.

However it is my opinion, and maybe is wrong.

If he wants the attention of a label, first he should be doing so well for himself that he doesn’t need one.
