Jesus Zeus Salas on How to Get Discovered in the Music Industry
Jesus Zeus Salas, Executive Vice President of Programming for Spanish Broadcasting Systems (SBS), has been working in the radio industry for over 20 years. Since 1992, Jesus Zeus Salas has held positions in the music industry, and his experience has shown him what it takes to get discovered as a new artist in the industry. Getting discovered as a new artist is very difficult because music is such a competitive business. However, with these tips from Jesus Zeus Salas, you can begin a successful music career.
Hold Live Shows
One of the most important ways to start your successful music career and get discovered is to play live shows. Live shows gain you fans, and if your fans become dedicated, they will want to purchase your albums and band merchandise. Having a substantial fan base increases your likelihood of being discovered by a recording company, and it shows them that you can actually sell yourself to people who are interested in your music. Jesus Zeus Salas states that loyal fans are the driving force behind any successful artist.
Record a Demo
The next step in getting discovered by a recording company is to create your demo. A demo will show potential recording companies the music that you play, and having a demo on hand is wise – you never know when you could come into contact with someone who is important in the industry. In addition, you can sell your demo at live shows to begin making money and to show potential recording companies that your music will sell. Jesus Zeus Salas believes that an excellent demo is the top factor recording companies are searching for when it comes to new talent.
Distribute a Press Kit
Another important piece of beginning your successful music career is the press kit. Your press kit should have your demo as well as information on you as an artist and a headshot. In addition, the press kit should include any articles that have been published about you and your music. You can distribute this press kit to anyone in the industry whom you come into contact with.
Hire a Manager
Finally, one of the best ways to get discovered more quickly is to hire a good manager. The manager you choose needs to believe in your talent. The main benefit to having a manager is networking. Your manager will have contacts within the industry, enabling you to share your music and get discovered.
Jesus Salas Takes New York Radio Station Mega 97.9 to Number One Rank beating all radio stations
Location: New York
Jesus Salas is the EVP for programing for the Spanish Broadcasting System located in New York. He is proud to announce that, due to his efforts, he has been able to take the ratings of WSKQ-FM, otherwise known as Mega 97.9 by its listeners to the Number One ranked station in all of New York. A history making event.
A big part of this success is due to the fact that Jesus Zeus Salas has infused the radio station with the types of music that Latinos want to listen to. The station plays more bachata, which is a style that many from the Dominican Republic enjoy hearing. Jesus Zeus Salas says he is adding music like this across the board that Latinos coming from all parts of the Latin American world can enjoy.
Jesus Zeus Salas clearly understands his audience, and proves that by playing the music they want to hear. However, he also knows how to communicate with his audience by promoting his radio station in ways that reach them. Jesus Zeus Salas promotes the radio station through social media marketing and other online promotional efforts. He believes, “When you remain hyper-local, you will always have a strong place in the people’s hearts and minds.”
He also attributes much of this success to the man he has put behind the microphone at the beloved radio station. His name is Alex Sensation and he has been pulling in listeners in the middays for some time now. “It doesn’t matter where you’re from,” Jesus Zeus Salas says, “He connects with Dominicans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, and Central and South Americans.”
Jesus Zeus Salas is excited about the performance of Alex Sensation and all the on air staff, and he has every right to be. Since the time that the radio station added Alex to their broadcasting lineup, the radio station has jumped up to number one in persons ranging in age from 18-34 and 18-49. Jesus Zeus Salas says, “It’s like a party.” That certainly seems to be the case as the radio station celebrates the fact that Mega 97.9 pulls, on average, 97 percent Hispanic listeners. What is incredible about this is that, of the population in the surrounding area, only 23 percent are Latino.

For most non-profit organizations, fundraising is the key to success. Without volunteers doing what they can to garner donations from supporters, activities screech to a halt, and populations and causes go on being underserved. Jesus Zeus Salas, a radio broadcasting professional in Miami, is deeply involved in a number of charitable causes within his community, and has chaired multiple events (such as the Gentlemen’s Night for the Miami Children’s Hospital) that have required a significant amount of fundraising acumen. Here, Jesus Zeus Salas shares some of his tips for successful fundraising.
Start Early. In order to reach your fundraising goal, Jesus Zeus Salas highly recommends getting the word out about events and beginning to collect donations well in advance. Try to do things last minute, Jesus Zeus Salas says, and you’re more likely to fall up short.
Advertise Widely. One of the most crucial parts of fundraising is alerting friends, family, and the community at large that you’re having an event or campaign. As a broadcasting professional, Jesus Zeus Salas knows how to get a message out, but the basic principle is simple. Cast a wide net, invest in professional-quality materials, and be persistent.
Go Beyond Cash. When planning an event, Jesus Zeus Salas says to remember that you can ask for donations of more than just money. Planning to have food at your event? Locate a caterer or restaurant who would be willing to donate their services. Want to create flyers, brochures, or event programs? Find a printer who wants to support your cause. The possibilities are endless.
Be Patient. Fundraising is an ongoing process, says Jesus Zeus Salas, and it’s one that requires patience. Don’t expect one event to raise all of the money you’ll ever need. Instead, consider holding seasonal fundraising events, and make your organization’s biggest event of the year an annual one.
The Importance of Community Involvement in Schools by Jesus Zeus Salas
Although Jesus Zeus Salas has made a name for himself as an award-winning, 20-year veteran of the Spanish-language broadcasting industry, he has taken a recent interest in improving educational opportunities for students in the greater Miami metro area. In light of his recent work with the Miami-Dade County Public School Juvenile Justice Center, Jesus Zeus Salas offers the following insight into why community involvement in schools is so important.
Numerous studies have shown that schools do better with community involvement. Drop-out rates are lower and student motivation levels are higher at schools with high community involvement, regardless of whether involvement takes place at the elementary or high school level and regardless of the economic status of the school or its students.
With budget cuts, many schools are not getting the support from local municipalities and governments that they need to succeed, and many of the programs that most appeal to students (such as art, music, and sports) are disappearing. Community lobbying, through writing letters to local government officials or attending school board meetings, can help preserve the systemic integrity of public school districts.
Community-based initiatives can often help students offer services that can help underprivileged students succeed, such as health clinics, after-school tutoring, book donation programs, and extra meal services. Volunteer hours and resources from parents, friends, and local professionals can make a world of difference for a student who may not have access to appropriate care at home.
When open lines of communication exist between parents, teachers, and administrators, school can be “brought home” far more easily. Many working parents don’t have the opportunity to get up to a child’s school for meetings, but regular contact through notes or brief conversations can help parents become more aware of any behavioral issues, homework expectations, and school policies. Likewise, teachers can learn more abut factors at home that may be affecting a student’s ability to perform at school.
For these reasons and more, it’s crucial that parents and local community members get involved in their schools. Today’s students are the leaders of tomorrow, and they deserve that every effort be invested in their success, betterment, and well-being. If you’re interested in finding more information about why community involvement is so important, or examples of ways that you can get involved with the schools in your own community, consider taking a look at the online resources listed below.
How to Encourage Teens to Stay in School by Jesus Zeus Salas
Jesus Zeus Salas is a strong supporter of the Miami-Dade Public School System. Encouraged by his recent participation in the Principal for a Day Program, Jesus Zeus Salas has formed a commitment to improving education in Miami, and encouraging teens to stay in school and take advantage of all the opportunities that a thorough education has to offer. Jesus Zeus Salas offers the following tips for getting teens to stay in school:
1. Focus on the Future
For many teens who want to drop out of high school, there is a distinct disconnect between what they want now and their understanding of how it will affect them in the future. Remind teens that in today’s world, professional success relies heavily on not only a high school but college education, and that earning power is highly correlated with level of educational completion. Plus, teens gain crucial job skills in school, from reading, writing, and math abilities to skills relating to communication and problem solving.
2. Talk About Health
According to the Center for Disease Control, those who complete high school are less likely to engage in risk-taking behaviors like drug abuse and heavy drinking. Young women who stay in school are also less likely to have an unplanned pregnancy. In addition, schools frequently offer a way for financially disadvantaged students to have access to basic health care and healthy meals. Teens may not realize the benefits that school can offer outside of a career path.
3. Offer Support
If the underlying cause of a teen’s desire to drop out of high school has to do with poor grades or a sense that education isn’t “for them,” identify problem areas. Many cities and towns offer free tutoring to struggling students through a school, library, or community center. Encouragement and role modeling at home helps, too. Place an emphasis on education in the home, and consider engaging in family activities like going to a museum or learning a new skill together.
4. Look For Alternatives
It’s entirely possible that an academic career may not be what your teen has their eye on for the future. However, dropping out still isn’t the answer. Talk to your teen about possibilities like trade school instead of a traditional four-year college. While your teen is in high school, find local professionals in a career that your teen might enjoy, and try to find job, internship, or apprenticeship opportunities.

Kids who are in school right now are the thinkers, leaders, and doers of tomorrow. But in many places in the United States, the education system simply isn’t receiving the support and resources it needs to provide students with the guidance they need to excel. Jesus Salas, who recently participated in his Miami community’s Principal Day initiative, suggests the following ways that you can get involved in your community’s schools, whether or not you’re a parent.
Be a Tutor
Many students today don’t have family members who have the time to help them with their homework after school. If you have a talent for reading, math, or any other subject, think about volunteering your time to help kids brush up on concepts they need to spend a little extra time with. Even if your algebra days are long gone and you couldn’t tell a coordinating conjunction from a transitive verb if your life depended on it, consider helping kids manage their time by showing them the value of making schedules.
Attend School Meetings
As a tax-paying member of your community, you have the right to be involved in school board meetings. Just by showing up, you’ll show administrators that you care about the quality of your community’s education. Feel free to ask questions and voice your opinion about the issues that you feel matter the most. If you’re a parent, joining a PTA (Parent-Teacher Association) can give an extra boost to your administrative involvement.
Support Leadership and Development
This is an avenue for you to push for quality education with your wallet. Help establish scholarship funds to send teachers to workshops and conferences. Or, create a funding pool for students who want to attend outside educational programs they might not be able to afford themselves. This type of fund can also help students cover the cost of college applications.
It’s especially important for supporters of public schools to stay informed about what’s going on in the government when it comes to education. Currently, many states have bills in their legislative branches that seek to limit certain aspects of instruction, or that are cutting funding from various program. Know what issues are up for vote in your community. If there’s a ballot initiative in your community that affects education, get out and vote.
Talk to Your Schools
Principal Day is just one of many community initiatives that bring individuals and schools together to improve educational opportunities and access. Get in touch with your local schools to see how you can best support them, and what options are available for volunteering or other involvement.
