Tip of the week

More of what you should know about Music Xray.

In the age of social media it's not what you say about yourself. It's what others say about you. While we're far from perfect and still have a lot of features to roll out, we wanted to share some of the great things we've read recently:

"Music Xray is just an absolutely awesome concept, and I've used it extensively, and with good results! You can't say that about many of the similar type of services/sites that's for sure. Good on ya! =) I've spent a lot of money for ZERO in other situations, and I won't name names here, but suffice it to say that my experience with Music Xray has nothing to compete with. You have blown them all out of the water and made room for the true artists and the people that want to find them. Again I thank you guys for all your very hard work and abilities at connecting. That's truly the key, connecting." - Paul Grenier an artist via our Facebook fan page. Hear his music here. ...

"[Music Xray is] purely professional, the way a real business platform should be run and it's a service that actually works.

Instead of turning up your nose with a preconception that this is just another “big” idea with no results as with other “fly by night” internet companies, think again. In fact, Music Xray is one of the best business concepts for today’s musicians seeking help from today’s music industry." - Posted by Michael J, an industry professional who uses Music Xray to source music for his "The Great Unknowns Presents" podcast which has over 50,000 subscribers.

...

Music Xray does not pre-screen. You get to submit and interact directly with the people listed on the site.

The following is our commitment to artists:

In building Music Xray our intention has been, and it always will be, to solve marketplace problems for artists.

No dream vultures. We will not permit professionals on our site to peddle false hopes.

We have incorporated numerous mechanisms to ensure transparency and to encourage artist feedback.

We believe we are democratizing the ability to reach the people that can either teach you something, and/or help you gain access to mass-exposure opportunities.

If you find otherwise, contact us and we will fix the problem.

Consultation on Career Path & Song-craft from Rand Bishop

http://www.musicxray.com/profiles/784

Rand Bishop is a Grammy-nominated, BMI Award-winning, Million-play songwriter with nearly 250 cuts to his credit, by such diverse artists as Tim McGraw, David Ball, Lorrie Morgan, Beach Boys, Heart, Cheap Trick, Indigo Girls, and Vanilla Fudge. Bishop’s My List, recorded by Toby Keith (co-written with Tim James) spent five weeks at #1 on the Billboard country singles chart in the spring of 2002 and became country radio’s most played song for that year. Bishop and James also co-authored a companion book, My List (24 Reflections on Life’s Priorities), published by McGraw-Hill in 2003.

In his 40-year career, Bishop has filled just about every role in the creative end of the music business: recording artist (Elektra, A&M, MCA, Epic), session vocalist (Rita Coolidge, Cat Stevens, Ted Nugent, Beach Boys), producer (Outlaws, Kick Axe, Trent Summar, Rhythm Corps), A&R exec, and publisher.

I am willing to have a brief conversation, offer some perspective on career path and how to use song-craft to more effectively market the songwriter/artist. I have 40 years experience as a recording artist, A&R exec, producer, and music publisher, have co-written with many professional and developing artists, developed talent, and helped artists define a clear and marketable point of view. I am the author of two books on songwriting: "Makin' Stuff Up, secrets of song-craft and survival in the music-biz," and the forthcoming "The Absolute Essentials of Songwriting Success" (for Alfred Publishing).
