Sounds dodgy as hell. Anybody running label signing as a "competition prize" - watch out.kds said:Hi again! I submitted my songs for a competition for this label looking for an artist to develop, publish and basically 'sell to the world'. I just entered it on a whim and didn't expect to hear anything about it again.
The ceo of the company however emailed me and is extremely interested in me and wants to meet with me etc. I googled him and stuff and have found info on him but have also found that, of all of the artists that are on his various labels, there's not one I've actually heard of.
Basically he's promising pretty big things like me going o/s and keeps plugging himself to me and telling me I'll be working with the 'right people'. I am planning to meet with him face-to-face and see what he's like but there's something about it I'm unsure about and I'm desperate for advice!
Do you have any suggestions for questions I should ask, what I should look for when researching him and his companies and just in general any red flags I should look out for?
My main concern is that none of his actual websites work, only the myspaces work and the artist photos and general look of the pages look quite tacky to me. More than anything though, it's the fact that none of the artists on his rosters are people I've heard of- it's just not very reassuring. I want to take advantage of opportunities but I don't want to just take them blinded. HELP PLEASE!!!!
Please send me a PM with the links to their MySpace, etc. and I'll tell you more privately.
