Music-biz veteran transforms online showcase for unsigned talent into global entertainment network
Myron ‘Foot’ Wright, who has been in the music business for 35 years, created an online showcase in 2008 to bring unsigned family-friendly entertainers to the attention of industry insiders looking for fresh talent and help them launch a successful career. Wright is now developing the site into a global entertainment network so that talented individuals can demonstrate their skills to an even wider audience. The site is called ASFUT – A Showcase For Unsigned Talent, and is designed to promote acts as varied as singers, rappers, dancers, actors, comedians, musicians, poets, models and athletes.
These days, having talent is one thing. But it is very hard for people to show others what they can do and get their talents recognized in an increasingly crowded and marketplace.
ASFUT members can post short videos of their acts online, where they can be viewed by talent scouts of all kinds, such as A & R representatives, music producers and event managers – as well as members of the public who are more than ready to watch something new.
“I believe that God gave us all special gifts,” begins Wright, “and ASFUT is giving people the chance to bring their talent to the world – for the simple joy of sharing with others and perhaps launch a glittering career,” he adds.
ASFUT has a suite of online promotional tools and a huge global entertainment database, to help it drive traffic to the site and bring its acts to the attention of industry insiders in over 30 countries across North America, Europe, Asia and Africa. ASFUT is also offering businesses the chance to market their goods and services to the 18 millions on its global entertainment database. This website is for serious unsigned artists.

]Myron Wright launched his original ASFUT organization and website in 2008. Initially, he travelled around U.S. cities in his ‘Footmobile’, shooting videos of talented but unsigned artists which he then uploaded to his website. ASFUT now has a presence in 30 countries and is transforming itself into a global entertainment network.

In 2000 I moved back over to TV and started planning events, finding the venue, book the acts, edit the footages into a 30-minute program. I would buy airtime from local TV stations and sell.30sec spots to local businesses. I started A Showcase for Unsigned Talent from hosting a TV show. I met a lot of unsigned talent which led me to turn ASFUT into a website and take it online for a wider audience. As a kid I also had to hustler to eat. I was out on my own at 12yrs old and I learned to play pool, cards and twist dices to eat. I was famous cross-country as Fast Foot and The Golden Boy for my street days even before the Internet. Some things I am not proud of and some just goes with the game.
Today I feel my greatest asset is my honesty and all I want to do is make people smile.
