      Hi I'm Nick, I'm from a band called The Plague Awakening, from palm Coast Florida, we just encountered a problem from this west coast ****************************&****** place, they just said this to us...(exact copy and paste)





      Hey, this is Josh with A&R Select. Right now we're looking for a band in your genre, and my scouts came across your page. If you're interested in working with someone to further your music career, feel free to give me a call, 323-988-5734.



      Josh

      arselect.com





      well thats what he told us, and we were really interested (who wouldnt want to further there music career) so me, seeing nothing in this world is free or easy, went to there page, and saw it, it looked very legit, sow i went to there myspace, also quite legit, sow i watched the videos and caught the catch that you had to pay a (1 time small fee) well here was the next message from the guy (josh)

      :



      I'm expecting to be in around 11 and out around 6 on Friday. That's Pacific time.







      so we called the guy, he was telling us that if we just gave him our cc information and bank account information and made 4 easy payments of 225 dollars that we would have our music sent out to over 400 college campuses and that we would start doing press confrences and radio hostings and take the first step to stardom, and thats when i said can we just do this in a month from now we just got done recording and need to save up some more money so that we can get with you guys and he said "no you need to sign with us now or we wont be interested blada blada" sow yah, anyone got any information on these guys because we are all quite unsure what to do about them atm, please contact us at

            I was trying to think of an appropriate response, but you put it better than I could.

              Um....you just joined HC, and your first post is to dig up a nearly 3 year old thread to say that 100 bucks isn't too much to gamble on what's essentially a dream merchant?



              Sorry, but this doesn't pass the smell test.




              I don't think any of these sort of *coughscam* marketers pass the smell test.

                    It's a scam! I recieved the same type of message from them about my band ! If you have the goods, ( ie: sellable , marketable tunes you should never pay anyone for this ) you will be aproached by the right people .

                      They sent me an email and I told them they could call me. I talked to a dude from "A&R Select" and he was SUCH a douche. There is a lot of **************** like this out there. From people wanting you to pay to be on a compilation album to bull**************** companies like A&R Select. I get random emails from this type on Sonicbids.



                      Taxi is legit though.

                        Just got a message from them through ReverbNation... Good thing I came in here, because I thought I smell a rat.



                        I love how they have ARSE in their URL... They just wrote in plain sight that they are full of ****************!

                            Radio play was just one of the things that A&R Select said they could do for me as long as I paid their fee up front. Well, I didn't agree to do business with them and I got radio play for myself just recently. I think the real truth is,.....if you want somethin done right, you gotta DIY.

                              OK here is the low down on A&R SELECT! RIP-OFF!!! STAY AWAY AND SAVE YOUR MONEY. how do I know?? because I decided after recording a cd to give them a shot so I spent the $500 for one of there packages. what I got for my money was a cheesy badly written BIO, a list of about 10 websites to create profiles on such as soundcloud etc. (basically anything anyone can find on the internet with just a little due diligence) and around 100 "MUSICSUBMIT" submissions. If one goes directly to music submit, which is not affiliated with A&R select, $500 bucks will get you way more than that, and that is it period. I found out the hard way so now spread the word and let's put these con artists out of business.

                                sadly, they will continue to operate as long as no one wins a lawsuit against them, and I will bet any contract they offer is crafted to avoid any specific promises/guarantees. Even if they were put out of business, someone else just as cunning would fill the slot.
