About Larp

Larp exists to foster creativity and collaboration amongst likeminded musical creatives. People who live to create music.

We believe in keeping the humanity in music. At the heart of all our productions are great singers, great musicians and great performances.

Great singers and musicians use years of practice and mastery to communicate a heightened sense of emotion. The voice or instrument is an extension of themselves

Music is about connecting with people emotionally. We believe that is best achieved when talent comes together.

Why Larp?

We are independent and as such you will be a BIG cog working in a small machine and have the opportunity to make a BIG impact.

You won’t just be making tea and coffee and fetching sandwiches. You’ll be learning valuable skills that will help you thrive in the music industry.

The role is a paid record label internship – marketing for two weeks. We’re looking for someone to come in and make themselves an invaluable asset. If you do that we’d love to think that you’ll join the family and come and work for us on a part time / full time basis.

The artists you’ll be working on are still under wraps until release in the summer. Upon application we’ll send you links.

One is a phenomenal pianist/singer songwriter – think Tom Odell, Tom Waits.

The other is a neo funk, soul, pop collective featuring different vocalists – think Jordan Rakei, Thirdstory, Massive Attack.

How To Apply

If you would like to apply please send us an email with:

a link to a short video of yourself explaining briefly what you have done, what you are doing, what you would like to do and how Larp might be able to help. The video should be no more than 90 seconds and you should just act natural – having said that we love a bit of character so feel free to be creative if you would like – remember, you are marketing yourself.

Send it to jobs[at]larpmusic.com with the subject “Record Label Internship – Marketing Application”

Why do we ask for a video? It’s all too easy and impersonal to send an email and attach a cv and we’d like to get to know you.

It takes a little more effort to record and send a video with considered content but… please be concise 🙂
