Meanwhile

Next week it's our 5th and 6th shows: the Belmont in Hamtramck and Holy Joe's in Toronto. That's the NXNE festival. We'll be staying at a comfy guest house in Cabbagetown. In fact, it's called the Comfy Guest House. So that's where we'll be if you find yourself reading this, in Toronto, and wanting to take us somewhere nice to eat/drink.

So that's some crazy back-2-back shit and we R pumped... I sure hope Indevorecords.com will be there, they seem really excited about us:

"I hope you are doing great. I really like your song 'The Fool Is Hurt'. Could you come play at Rocketown in Nashville for me and some other music Industry Reps?? I work for a label under Warner Bros. and we are looking for more artists' right now. We can set up your showcase right online by going through this A&R company we use called Band With a Mission. (www.bandwithamission.com)

The cool part about showcasing with them is that you will get to showcase your best songs for me and a couple other music industry representatives and you will get a 3 page feedback/A&R Assessment explaining what you are great at, and what you can work on to improve your show. You will also receive a pack from the sponsors with info on how you can get involved with their company. They have an unbelievable track record.

I hope you can come out!"


No, I hope you can come out, Meagan. We'll do a two-part harmony, a cappella version of 'The Fool Is Hurt', just so you can understand them lyrics.

Hey. I got the same email today. Exactly the same. I googled meagan's email address and I came to your page. Is this legit? Do you know anything else about this company? Any help would be appreciated.

Past experience tells me it is a marketing ploy that would somehow involving a band paying to play in front of "industry folks". Not legit.

Thanks man, that is what I figured. Though, if you google the company, there are 1 or 2 bands that went through them and actually have been signed to labels and are touring. The music videos that i saw look like there was a lot of money put into them. But you're probably right there must be some upfront money involved.
