Dear Dear Aspiring Producer:
Let’s start over. You are contacting me to listen to your music and give you feedback on your project. Let’s pretend that I am an industry person who can make a difference and help you with your musical career. On the initial contact, you need to make me want to listen to your music, as I am flooded with requests like this.
1. Check spelling.
2. Use punctuation.
3. Use capitalization.
4. Use correct grammar.
5. Don’t use familiar terms, i.e. ‘u’ instead of you.
6. Most importantly – show me that you are excited and proud of your music, not that I should listen to it if I “get bored.”
A little professionalism with your contacts will help you a lot in your career.
