Is this place legit?
Here is the body of the email:
The best way I can probably describe what it is we do and what we're about
is two main categories:
1) Representation.One of the most obvious ways we work is connecting
artist with record labels. Of course, there are many facets that come into
play, and what we do extends into getting our artists connected with every
need pertaining to their artistry and career.
2) A kick in the butt. Strategy, consultation, ideas, business,
technique, accountability, business plan, etc.
Basically the next step would be this:
We would put you in the studio for a single with a production team and
use that for a number of things, first of all to evaluate where you are
in the grand scheme, and build more of an understanding of the full scope
related to you, and what needs done, what the ins and outs are, as well,
use it to shop and try and generate possible deals, etc. We do work with
a lot of people and may be able to connect something for you in terms of
backing, labels, etc. From there, basically work on a specific business
plan for you, which would be based off of where you are now, what's
immediately available in terms of deals, and where it is you ultimately
want to take this.
We would be willing to cover 60% of the cost on the production and
recording of this single. It would be with a production team we have a
relationship with and can give us the intimate first hand knowledge of the
band that we're really looking at, and that I know will deliver the result
we're looking for sonically and production value wise. The total cost to
you would be $390. You wouldn't need to pay for that up front of course,
but you would need to make a deposit ($150) to the studio in order to set
up a date. You wouldn't pay the rest ($240) until you physically went into
the studio for the single process. You would own it 100% in every way no
matter what. But, that's the first major step we'd take with you, in order
to gain a lot more nuts and bolts details on every level,and most
importantly, develop a relationship with you, establish trust on both
sides, and really evaluate the full dynamic of what our working
relationship could look like, the future potentials, and explore what
resources we can bring to the table for you in terms of backing and
support, etc, etc.
As mentioned in our conversation you would be going to the studio's
Columbus, OH location.
