Dear Terry,
Thanks for submitting the material for the evaluation. I enjoyed the songs very much. To give you insight to the scoring scale above, the majority of artists score in the 2.5 to 3.5 range in the various categories. When an artist sees 4, 4.5 or 5 as their score in a category, it's a validation from a professional, confirming that the songs are of the highest level and show strong potential in the ultra-competitive music industry. To really raise the bar, every artist should work hard to earn a 4.5 or 5 in every category. It's a very competitive business and people averaging in the 3's (or less) will probably not get too far without a great deal of improvement and development. I don't give out 4's and 5's easily, so any of those you see, you have earned. Well done!

If you are trying to gain the attention of record companies, music publishers, booking agents or top managers, your game plan should include: college radio promotion, publicity, live performances, Internet marketing, social media and CD/merchandise sales. Just having a great CD and live show are no longer enough in today's music business. You have to show industry executives you have a product that has been marketed successfully on the local or regional level.
Thanks again for the music submission and continued best wishes! --------------------------- Best wishes, Gene Foley www.FoleyEntertainment.com

Bio

'Excuse You' Seattle's 5 piece downbeat Rock band, live and breathe their music as part of life's journey. Alternately tuned acoustic guitars, heavily influenced by Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Robert Mirabel and the backbeat of the Beatles, are then driven by out of control downbeat percussion and soaring lead guitars. Melodic Bass guitar and spacey keyboards is a reminder that 'Excuse You' obviously enjoys the psychedelia of Radio Head and Pink Floyd.
