Don’t know if you’ve heard of this setup…
I’ve been in the biz for quite some time but so far haven’t heard this…until just now.
First off my band’s had some indie label interest and since there are some interested we’ve decided to ask around more labels and see if we can get a better offer.
So, after contacting a legit offer, I get this:
An offer for a telephone talk with some schmoe that is supposed to be a big shot but hasn’t done anything relevant since 2013 but prey on unsuspecting musicians. We’ll get this recorded and send to us as a courtesy, for the lovely low price of $500.
So…that’s the label offer. And it is a legitimate label! I am absolutely baffled. Maybe if they gold frame the tape from the interview (yes, I want analog tape!) I might consider it.
