                    ...... David Ivory, Grammy nominated producer

Our Veteran A&R Services team has the seasoned "EARS" and they know instinctively what major record labels and independent record labels want.  It's their job to know what they want.  The guidelines utilized in our unique demo and album assessment reports were structured and written by A&R representatives whose responsibility  is to recommend and bring the top level record executives "THE HEAT" -- new talent that is ripe for signing.  They are unlike any other demo and CD assessment service's reports. They are extremely detailed in every way - shape-and form >> Not just a comment or two like most other firms or so-called music gurus. 


We're so confident that they will provide you with the knowledge you need to make your demo and recordings BETTER ..  and what the labels, publishers, and film & TV music supervisors are looking for  that they come totally RISK FREE and with our "no questions asked" money back guarantee.

Our A&R Veterans evaluate your demo utilizing our  unique proprietary assessment guidelines to assure it's what the labels are looking for .....  BEFORE you submit it to the major record labels or independent record labels

View Our Demo Assessment Packages

Before either a major record label or independent record label even considers offering a record deal or any level of recording contract they MUST be absolutely BLOWN AWAY!  Especially with the state of the music industry and record industry today. Trust us on this PLEASE!  This doesn't happen very often to say the least.  The ratio to what A&R Representatives listen to and what they recommend for signing to the upper level record executives with the true signing power is maybe 100 to 1 ....  Depending upon the size of the label and signing quotas the actual ratio that upper level executives consider signing is approximately 1000 to 1.  Not good odds. You need every possible advantage you can muster.

This doesn't mean you should be discouraged because with the right demo or CD you could be one of the lucky ones.  But it has to be what the labels want.  This is how our band demo assessment report can help magnify your chances greatly.  Point by point our professionals will explain in written detail what's good and what's not so good about your demo music recording.  They'll help you tailor the recording into exactly what labels want.  That's no guarantee of anything of course but your chances will be far greater.

When it comes to labels reviewing your demo submissions and media kit that old adage is so true

Please whatever you do don't fall into the trap that many independent A&R subscription services try and sell you.  You can't keep repeatedly submitting your work to major record labels or independent music labels just because they may have the major record label address.  If you're rejected the first time ... that's pretty much it unless you change your name and image and start from the beginning ... yet again. 

AMEG with it's artist development and consultative services is a premier musicians resource and unsigned band resource and has been assessing unsigned band demos, music recordings, and presskits for over 23 years.  It's our business ...  We have accumulated music connections over the years and it's part of what we do when considering management and demo CD shopping deals. 

Don't let the most important dream of your life be left to chance. Increase your chances of landing a record deal and recording contract with a professional pre-label assessment by the Allure A&R Professionals.

In the course of signing acts to management, and shopping record deals over the past 23 years we know exactly what A&R and labels want.  Don't make the mistake of submitting your demo or press kit to labels until it's right.

Our assessment reports are structured utilizing the exact guidelines that major record label A&R executives use to evaluate their artist submissions.

Many unsigned artists and unsigned bands have found that it makes perfect sense to utilize our service before actually diving in head-on and having a reputable source submit it to record labels.  Depending upon the level of service you choose, you'll receive a detailed and fully comprehensive, easy to understand report totally critiquing your demo's strong points and weak points on either our 7 point or 12 point proprietary system.  If you submit a media or promo kit (recommended with Gold Service) along with your demo, we'll evaluate that for you as well.  Our assessment reports were structured  by A&R experts and record producers utilizing the exact guidelines that major and Indie record label A&R use to evaluate their artist submissions.  Our comprehensive professional evaluations will give you the confidence and knowledge you need to properly equip yourself for your major or Indie label attack.

Depending upon the level of service package you choose, our A&R professionals will evaluate your demo and press kit utilizing some of the following criteria:

  • Strength of Material
  • Songwriting Techniques
  • Production and Arrangement
  • Quality of Recording
  • Commercial Appeal
  • Marketability
  • Image Strength
  • Instrumentation
  • Lyric Critique
  • Lead Vocal
  • Break-Through Potential
  • etc.

“I recently received my Priority Gold Evaluation and Assessment. The critique was very detailed and extremely reassuring in letting me know that I have a commercially marketable product with a strong potential for breaking into the mainstream. Based on the strength of my critique, I am interested in working with Allure on an independent basis for consultative and management services, and also wish to have my product shopped to Major and Large Independent Labels.Please let me know what recommendations you may have for moving things to the next level and what is needed from me in order to initiate a working relationship.I look forward to working with you. Thank you for your time.

recommendation to our major or Indie record label associates

One of the added features and probably the most exciting and valuable part about using AMEG's professional assessment service is that not only are we an artist management and production company, we are also an independent Artist & Repertoire (A&R) service.  If we feel your demo has merit, and you as an artist has what it takes to break-through we'll talk to you about submitting your package to major record labels either via an independent music shopping arrangement or under management if that seems feasible for both parties. If you're an unsigned band, singer-songwriter, or just a songwriter .....

 Remember ... you need a creditable source to submit your demo no matter who it is.  A reputable
artist management firm, producer, or entertainment attorney who deals with labels on a regular basis.  This can't be emphasized enough!  AMEG is a well respected and highly trusted source of new artists.  Record labels, music publishers, and music producers look to us and actually look forward to receiving our recommended submissions.

Needless to say .... There are no guarantees..... Never is when it comes to landing a good record contract.  If anyone guarantees anything at all to you in this business, start running .. and don't stop.  Bottom line ... If we like what we hear and see, we'll talk a shopping, management, consulting, or production deal with you.  Submitting your demo to the labels comes along with that.  But we have to feel it has label merit or can have merit with the critique we would provide.  Remember, our credibility in the industry is paramount to us ..  we just can't and won't submit something we don't fully believe in.  We know what sells, and what doesn't!  Any independent service who will submit your demo for a fee ... without listening to it or caring what it's all about ..  well ... you'd better take off running again.  You're wasting your time and money. 

Many unsigned artists and unsigned bands have found that it makes perfect sense
to use our  "NO RISK" service before chancing it with the record labels

Submitting to us first for evaluation is like submitting to the label without fear of rejection only assistance.  We use the same evaluation basis labels do..  Not to mention the fact that we are a label as well. So with our service you'll get the best of both worlds;  Professional critique, and when it's right .... label submission ... from a very well respected, well received source in the music industry and music business.

We are talent scouts on a perpetual talent search looking for new viable talent that is ready to step up to the major label level.  If you're not there yet, we want to help you in the hope that we can be the ones to shop you or sign you.  After all, that's how we really make our money.  Not on a few bucks for the demo assessment reports that basically doesn't even cover administrative costs and the cost of our reviewing and assessing it.  The small fees we charge for the reports simply covers some of the administrative  handling and obviously an extremely small portion of critique time.  What we really are looking for is artists we can sink our teeth into and roll with.

One way or the other we can help.  There's no risk ..
we've removed it with our money back guarantee.

One way or the other, we're certain we can help you.  If spending a few dollars for a professional, comprehensive evaluation from the A&R professionals at Allure is too much to spend on your career or your attempt to get a record deal, even though it might very well be the pinacle that will tip the scales in your favor with the labels ..... well ... that's a shame.   Especially when we have removed any and all risk by offering a no questions money back guarantee.

 If you think this demo and CD evaluation service can help, and you'd like a serious shot at having your demo submitted to our
major record label associations take a look at the packages we have to offer.  Don't leave your dream to chance!  Let us help you make your demo "HIT THE BULLS EYE WITH THE RECORD LABELS AND MUSIC PUBLISHING COMPANIES STRAIGHT ON!
