Can all the music professionals give me some advice?
Topic: The sister studio
July 19, 2019 / By Ross Question:
I have been singing for a long time now and I wanted to take it a step further and move into the entertainment industry. I have always wanted to be a recording artist since I was young. There is this guy on Myspace that said he has an uncle who has a studio. He said he can take care of the expenses and will get me a vocal coach and certain gigs to perform at. He said we will go into the studio and do some beats and some songs. I am supposed to meet him next week with my sister. What do you guys think of this situation? What kind of questions should I be asking before I go? What do I need to look out for?

Like the answer above be VERY CAUTIOUS. Ask what he gets out of it? Who will have the rights to the songs? I am in the same situation so just dont lose your values, tell a parent about this and let them know where you will be, save some cash for emergency and try to write your own songs and immediately copyright them. You are very lucky and must be quite talented ;)
Good Luck ;)

Originally Answered: Boyfriend cheated. Need advice from Professionals or links to articles in relationships?
It'd help to know exactly what kind of advice you're looking for. Do you want to get a handle on whether this particular relationship is worth trying to save? Or do you want tips on how to move forward assuming you do decide to stick with it for now?
In regard to the first question, the nature of the cheating plays a factor, as does how he handles the immediate fallout. If you had to "find out" from someone other than him, that's not a good sign - but if it was a one-time mistake that he has no intention whatsoever of repeating, and he's willing to dig deep and figure out why it happened in the first place to make sure, then maybe trying to leave it in the past once he's done that is the best strategy. You also have to assess the strength of the relationship before this happened (including any other signs of untrustworthiness or dissatisfaction) and any factors that might be clouding your judgment (like, say, conflating your relationship with your parents').
If you've done all that and you still want to give things a shot, then the link below can give you a start on how to start rebuilding. The trouble is, though, articles about other people can only get you so far. You may need to call in a counselor to work through issues that are particular to the two of you. And whether or not you think he's worth that investment may be something you want to take into account before deciding what to do.
First - you need to get the uncles name, address and phone number of his studio, and give him a call prior. (and double check these details with yellow pages!) If it's ok with the uncle to go to his studio next week, it should be ok with calling him today.
Remember, the music business is just that.. a business. You are just being professional here.
Second, if it turns out to be authentic, take someone older and wiser with you, just to have someone with you. A guy is good for this. If that person is savvy in the music business, all the better. But do not go anywhere alone!!
Personally, I am questioning why this guy on myspace doesn't even really know you yet, but is willing to pay for so much.
Please be careful.

Honestly I wouldn't go. There are a million ways that you can make it into the music business. If you absolutely feel the need to go, you should bring your parents with you. This whole thing feels really wrong. Has this guy even heard you sing in person? If he hasn't I would really think twice about this. No one (for the most part) wants to help someone that they have not heard in person. Really really think about this.

i would say be very careful, because now days this kind of thing just does happen that often..where someone will take care of everything with out you putting up some money first.....does he have any references that you can contact first before you meet with him....or any credits under his belt...does the studio have a name and is his uncle a licensed engineer .....please be careful

i would suggest either mr. brightside by the killers, or fame < infamy by fall out boy. or the bird and the worm by the used. the third one is probably a smart choice! ive done that to, and the songs are unclear as to the meaning, but you can figure it out. its easy.
