Los Angeles based tastemaker music site DAILY UNSIGNED is celebrating 7 years of leading the way identifying the greatest new bands as part of founder Rob Figarola’s unending quest to single out the best talent out there
“I started DAILY UNSIGNED in June 2010 with the goal to discover and feature unsigned artist’s that I loved and believed in. 7 years later, I never imagined that 200+ of our 800+ alumni members would secure record and publishing deals and sell a combined 100+ million singles as well as garnering 10 Grammy Awards” – Founder, Rob Figarola
Originally an accountant by trade, Figarola’s childhood love of Top 40 music led him to work to elevate the local music scene as an escape from the pressures of a senior financial analyst position with an East Coast Fortune 500 Company. Figarola’s first entry into the music industry was in 1994 when he launched Urban Squirrel Records, where he signed Indie and Alt-Rock bands up and down the East Coast til 1999. Following a break from the industry, in 2004, he launched Restless Management where he developed his expertise in music consulting and artist management through 2012. He has worked as an A&R specialist for both Wind-Up Records and A&M/Octone Records and is currently writing for multiple music news outlets.
