Watch out for this music promotion scam.
Watch out for this scam.
I recently received this email from SRL Networks….
Good day Mark Spivey,
I discovered some of your independent music projects online, and hope it’s alright to contact you this way.
I’m an A&R representative at SRL Networks in London, an artist relations company representing independent musicians and labels around the world. We are looking for new music for our radio network, music licensing catalog and artist promotion roster, and I’d like to invite you to audition.
Subject to a successful audition, SRL Networks will get your independent releases heard by entertainment industry professionals and fans around the world, and help facilitate music licensing and distribution deals, live events bookings, record label and music publisher deals and more. You will receive a detailed agreement once your audition has been successful.
You can find out more about us at www.skunkradiolive.com/backstage and find out how to submit music and obtain your audition ticket at www.skunkradiolive.com/auditions
Please do get in touch, it would be a pleasure to hear from you…..
Now on the surface this may seem great – someone loves my music!
The truth is they just want you to pay out your hard earned dough with absolutely no guarantee of anything other than you being out of pocket.
A quick look at the site and a google search will reveal the truth on these guys and others like them. Skunkradiolive appears to be very on the nose…
If you are an aspiring music artist and are receiving emails such as this please save yourself some heartache and ignore them since they will cost you unnecessary time and money with very little in return.
Until next time.
