Behind any successful musician is someone in the shadows making their dreams become a real possibility. For many, that person is Record Label President Shan Dan Horan (Artery Recordings, Century Media, Outerloop Records). Teaming up with Emmy Award winning Producer Alan Sacks (Welcome Back Kotter, Smart House) they bring you an unscripted and inspiring new television show “Musician Rescue”.
“I started giving musicians advice, and before I knew it my inbox was full of requests for help. I knew I had to find a bigger way to help them” Shan Dan states while describing the television show.
As we watch, we follow Shan Dan on an inspiring journey as he gives a band a complete makeover. From recording with a grammy winning producer, shooting a high end music video, to playing in front of a sold out show. Shan Dan breaks the glass ceiling as musicians get the opportunity of a lifetime.
In anticipation for the TV series, “Musician Rescue” has opened up submissions (Starting June 5th) for unsigned musicians (of all genres) to submit their band here: http://smarturl.it/hy1z1d .
“I’ve been very fortunate working for so many excellent record labels, and I’ve always felt truly honored to work for some of the biggest artists out there. However for me, I always enjoyed working with unsigned bands. They always had this raw talent and honestly just needed a foot in the door.” Shan Dan states.
