Breaking U.S. Artists Abroad
TimeZone International is a catalyst for increased communication between U.S. labels and their international affiliates, licensors, or distributors. International exposure is essential in the growth of an artist’s career, and our mission is to move artists from the limits of selling records only in North America to unlimited worldwide sales. TimeZone is very proud of its diverse roster of artists from various musical genres. We are as committed to our new and emerging artists (whether they be signed to a major label) as we are to our established artists.
We go through great lengths to ensure that our artists are as comfortable in Berlin, London, or Paris as they would be in New York, Los Angeles or Atlanta. The sometimes “shock to the system” of international travel is turned into a learning tool to stress the importance of global artistic recognition and appreciation of other cultures. TimeZone prepares its clients for the cultural, social, linguistic, intellectual and political implications of the foreign territories they visit. This valuable education has enabled artists to travel abroad with ease and confidence and allows them to connect with their worldwide audience in a language that transcends words and boundaries… MUSIC.
TimeZone International has a rich network of international booking agents, promoters, and venue owners allowing artists the opportunity to tour abroad. Our staff books numerous promotional and pay-date tours throughout the world.
- Manage professional and pay-date tours
- Facilitate trans-atlantic and travel between territories
- Secure international travel and relevant work permits

Many artists who are successful abroad find it challenging to break into the U.S., although imported music is in such high demand in America. Music made outside of the U.S. usually enjoys critical acclaim, but somehow sales don’t always reflect it. Often the difference can be just in the way an artist is styled for the U.S. market. TimeZone prepares artists from other territories for release in America by offering a source of well-respected specialists in the areas of:
- Production and remix
- Grassroots marketing and promotion
- Artist development
- Styling and imaging
- Media training
