Thread Name: I need some honest advice
Subject: RE: I need some honest advice
There's been plenty of good advice already in this thread about what to sing, how the promo might be edited, etc, etc. My contribution is this wise snippet, told to me by an A&R man, regarding promotional material; video or audio: "If you haven't grabbed the listener's attention within the first 5 to 10 seconds, your promo is almost certainly destined for the bin."
       I wish you every success in your quest to further your career.
