I had a session with a very talented tween age girl from New York who was in L.A. with her mom. After the working session with the girl, I later received an email from the mom. She was so excited because her daughter was in a final callback for a music producer looking for a third girl to join a singing group. I asked her to call me ASAP to discuss!
I explained to mom that I knew all about this music producer and his quest to form a girl group. He had been trying to make this happen for over two years. I personally knew of three girls who were chosen for the group and later left when they realized that the job and the producer were not credible. I told mom, “He has no credibility, but will charge you money for recording songs, head shots, wardrobe, promotional material and with zero ability to make anything happen.”
Both mom and daughter were disappointed but they listened to me because of my first-hand knowledge of this so called music producer’s past and my knowledge of this business. Mom was so thankful that she had checked with me first before signing her daughter to the group!
Later, her daughter signed with a legitimate talent agent that I felt was perfect for her and began going out on auditions.
