A&R Select
ANDYF ANDYF is offline 20-02-2011, 10:30 AM

Anyone have any information about this outfit? I was approached by email following them listening to my music. Has anyone here been approached in a similar way by these?

Hi, this is Andy with A&R Select. Right now we're looking for an artist in your genre, and I came across your page. I really enjoyed the song "Ps. I Love You", and I'd like to recommend you to one of our New Talent Reps. If you're interested, shoot me a contact number, and I'll pass your music along.
We hope to hear back from you soon!
Andy with Relocate

Take Care

You can tell by the way the message is worded that something's fishy, here's a little report behind that assumption:

A&R Select is the The New talent 2k, just ask Josh, he clearly states it on his Voicemail if you call him at 320 230 7424. By the way ive never done business with josh Joe was supposed be my A&R but his directline seem to have been taken over by his alter ego Josh. I began doing business with this company in Jan 2010. I first spoke with brittany if that her real name we discusssed thier premium package gold. the total cost was 500. If you want the detials on what they are supposed to offer you should jut check out thier web page @ arselect.com, in anysense they do not deliver anything but a illegal debit to your bank account , because if you do any business with them what so every im sure Joe and Britnay and Josh and Mr Magoo are all having a tea party with your checking account cuz 9/ 10 they have your card number. After they overdrew my checking account i called because i received an email. Joe said i had to call billing, but they have no number for billing. He then said billing would call me but they never did. that was 3/31/2010. it is now 7/1/10 and they will not return my calls or do anything that they illegally paid themselves to do. Before doing any busines with this company check the BBB because they dont have a buiness liscense. They are a phiising company. Talent 2ks main A&R name was Joe Black. I think he might have put is Cousin Joe X(no name Given) down on the Scam. But what they will do i make things ound good Like They Are legit BUt THEY ARE A SCAM COMPANY OUT FOR YOUR MONEY> REAL A&RS DONT ASK FOR YOUO MONEY. AND HAVE WRITTEN COONTRACTS . BEWARE TALENT 2k AKA A&R SELECT BY THE WAY THIER other Info



Joe@arselect.com

They also contact ppl on their facebook wall which is completely unprofessional and an obvious scam he uses the following profile as Derek Rye, posted the following message @ the Premises page The Premises | Facebook on feb 13th:

"Shoot me a contact number" turned me off straight away! Also, "arselect.com" is an unfortunate choice of web address (mainly funny to brits I suppose).

You know the axiom: If it seems too good to be true....

Which is sad, because your music deserves to be heard. Have you tried approaching TV/Film companies?

Hi Tony


Thanks for your reply and I too had a 'titter' at the website but agree it would not mean much to anyone across the Atlantic. I have pitched to quite a few others and am plodding on!

Take Care

Andy
