I had to do a double-take when I saw this opportunity listed on Music Xray but it turns out it’s real.
You pay $300 and Kyra Larock will organize a 30 minute face to face meeting for you with an A&R representative from any of the following labels: Jive (Sony), Capitol (EMI) or Universal or Bad Boy. I mean, seriously, if you’re serious about your career and you think you have what it takes, why wouldn’t you leap at this opportunity?
For most artists, the biggest challenge is getting in the door and here’s Kyra offering a limited number of guaranteed slots – not just a guaranteed listen by one of these executives – BUT A FULL BLOWN 30 MINUTE MEETING!!
If you’ve spent any more than that on your recording but aren’t willing to spend that on getting in front of the right people, I have to question your understanding of how the new music business works. You have to invest in yourself just like any other business invests in selling their goods and services and if you can make a meeting like this happen for any less money (not to mention how long it will take you to meet the right people and arrange the meeting), I’d like to know where.
