SUBMITTED BY LARRY DAZZLER:
NCA RECORDS in Mount Juliet, Tennessee
The music publisher, Eric Zanetis reuses tracks; the EXACT same music that was placed on my songs was used on others' lyrics. I have proof of it, too! I was taken in for over two thousand dollars, then realized that writers aren't supposed to pay the publishers, publishers are supposed to pay the writers. He charges $350. to sing Karaoke. I can send over some links, so you can see that NCA recording company places the same music to peoples' songs. The agreement claims the recording will be made using LIVE NASHVILLE MUSICIANS and they've sent emails, claiming that they are COMPOSING the music for MY songs, etc. It's all a big lie. I trusted him because he wrote the music and published Tim McGraw's "Don't Take The Girl". He uses that song as BAIT. SWIMMER BEWARE!

So you are in music and you wanna make it?
Ok well watch out for sharks. Folks or companies
that take you money, promise you stardom or distribtion or contacts and give you sweet F.A.
Get it, got it, good. Here's a brief summary of businesses that have been classified as Sharks,
and/or have "caution" written all over them:
"Adam Knight Music Group"
was a radio promoter
listed in the Indie Contact Newsletter, who then had calls from
people that feel that they have been ripped off. There are a lot of
complaints lodged at the Better Business Bureau as well.
If you have any complaints about Adam Knight's service,
send them to Dave Butcher at CRMusic@CarolynRichards.net Dave is gathering evidence to take legal action.
Amerecord: Located in Hollywood next door to...
(Both these companies sent unsolicited packets to
Cookie Cutter Girl in the mail, requesting money.)
Hilltop Records: Both these organizations want
you to pay to have them put you on a CD,
which they then "market" to the people that
paid to be on the CD in the first place!
(My personal favorites for Shark of the Decade)
Paramount Music Group: Located in Nashville,
these guys have been a major source of Bad Press
in the old Shark Board. Steer clear!
MBM Records: Fairly recent addition to the pool.
A visit to their site will be self-explanatory http://www.mbmrecords.org -Post a red flag;
swim at your own risk.
yourmusicnetwork.net, AKA Integy Entertainment: Fellow-Tunie Geetarman can tell you about this one... SHARK!
Insert theme from "Jaws" here!
Nyla-Entertainment-UniversalMusic.com : Ditto
CenturyMusicGroup.com : Opinion seems split
on this one, so I'd post a "caution" flag here IMO.
Baldwin Entertainment: Please keep your hands
and feet inside the boat at all times! Shark!
Capitol Management: A Classic scam, touring the country
for "talent" ala American Idol and ripping folks off for thousands
of $$$. I have documentation...
Don't forget our old friend Statue Records out of Hollywood. Sharks extrodinaire!!
... their shark feeding waters is SoundClick.com
(That's where they get contact info from.)
At first this seems like a great idea:
sell your mp3s directly from your website.
But this website is a total scam.
They have no phone number. Their address is phony. And they never let you quit once you subscribe.
This is a very shady operation: PAYLOADZ
