I submitted a song. The so-called producer charged $30 to listen to my song. You can see from his listing that he isn't very concise on what he's looking for, even references "content can be broad; no swearing or explicit sexual references." And his so-called feedback: "Not quite what we're seeking." I paid $6/word for "not quite what we're seeking." REALLY? REALLY? How about he tell me what he was specifically looking for, or what he liked or didn't like about the song? Again, ARE YOU F**KING KIDDING ME?! "NOT QUITE WHAT WE'RE SEEKING." $30 PLEASE! THEY ARE HELPING THESE PEOPLE RIP OFF ARTSITS.
This is what the so-called producer requested:
Owner Manager - Alignment Management
A brand new female country pop star is currently looking for follow up singles to her hotly anticipated debut original music release. This artist has millions of followers across various platforms and her music has already achieved tens of millions of streams. Artist is in their early 20s so content can be broad from life to love, loss or liberty (or a combination of all!). Please note the content should be suitable for country radio so no swearing or explicit sexual references - if included make them clever and PG. This is country so we are willing to consider work tapes or demos just as much as fully produced out submissions as long as the quality is in the song we have no qualms about the quality of the submitted recording.
Below is the "feedback" I received for $30 to the producer and $5 to Music X-ray.
1. Not quite what we're seeking
