I'm from the band Snatch Magnet, and I'm glad most people are scared to go out their front door every day. Imagine if all these people were actually trying. A&R Select contacted us because they liked our music, and we figured, we've shelled out money for lessons, instruments, gas to gigs, recording, CD printing, etc., etc. Why not spend something on promotion. We spent 1000 bucks with A&R Select. They revamped our press kit, got us tons of reviews, and they got us playing on hundreds of college stations. We've now got an endorsement with Egnater Amps. They also got one of our songs into a Lion's Gate film called "Freelancers" with Robert Dinero, and we even got to go to the premier at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood. They put 2 of our songs in a movie called "Frozen Ground" coming out this March with Nicholas Cage and John Cussack. So, our investment has more than quadrupled just on upfront licensing checks, not counting residuals. We're not the biggest band in the world, but we're a lot better off than when we were before we got help. After reading this forum, I'm glad most artists are too scared to invest in their music. Feel free to google us, or check out our website, facebook, imdb page, youtube, itunes, or download our free app A&R helped us create: isnatch

Congratulations! You are the first one ever to respond positively regarding A&R Select. I hope this all works out well for you. I suppose every now and tehn someone willl get a break. One has to wonder if you could have done what you did without them, but it sounds like you feel you got your money's worth, and that is what really matters.

From what I've read here, most of these people didn't actually use A&R Select. It's like a support group for people who chickened out, where they can try to convince each other it wasn't good. I doubt very many artists who have success spend much time on forums. I just have a job where I sit in front of a computer and need to look busy. The answer is no, we wouldn't have gotten our song placed in a major motion picture without A&R Select. I don't know anybody in that industry.

Yet, there are some who did, and were not happy with the results. Now, I'm not gonna pass judgement, because everybody thinks their band is ready for the big time. Yours apparently was.
