"Standby For Transmission Sonicbids EPK Review"

RATING SCALE "1" Indicates the Lowest Score "5" Indicates The Highest Score Recording Quality/Production: 4 Lead Vocals: 4 Musicianship: 4.5 Lyric Writing: 4 Music Composing: 4 Melodies: 5 Song Arrangement: 4 Quality of EPK Content: 4 Overall Delivery: 4 Thanks for submitting the material for the evaluation. I enjoyed the songs very much. Excellent writing, guitar playing and tone. 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. Whenever an artist sees a 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3 or 3.5 as a score in a certain category (or categories) it means that's an area I feel they need to improve and develop. 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! You will see links to several television interviews I've done, which are filled with advice and tips that may be of help to you. If you only have the time to watch two of the clips, I'd say the most informative are: "Poughkeepsie Live - Second Appearance" - from Time Warner Cable Television in New York and "69 News At Sunrise" from WFMZ in Pennsylvania. 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 Stan and continued best wishes! I look forward to hearing from you via e-mail this week, so we can arrange a mutually convenient time to speak on the phone. Best wishes, Gene Foley - Gene Foley of

Still working on that hot first release.



The artist in question has played in various bands and performed hundreds of shows in the last 16 years, the longest stint being with the most recent rock band CHETT . Highlighted shows include the 2000 Vans Warped Tour and Cornerstone Festival as well as The Double Door in Chicago, The Rave in Milwaukee, and The Midpoint Music Festival in Cincinnatti, Ohio. Songs he performed with these various bands have been on four different nationwide compilation CD's with the latest being on Cincinnatti's 2008 Midpoint Music Festival, as well as on MTV's "reality" dating show "Next" as background music during two different episodes. Now with Luke, the singer/rhythm guitarist from the Rock band CHETT accepting a new position in Nashville, TN, Stan, the Drummer/BackVocalist made a decision to venture into new territory and start his own solo project, Standby for Transmission. That was his story, now he's ready to start a new chapter in a new story. Utilizing a wide scope of styles and genres of music make this artist versatile in song writing abilities which gives the listener a lot of variety meaning there is something for everyone here. Performing all of the instruments himself, Stan Hulsey draws from passionate British rock influences such as Radiohead, Travis, and Coldplay, and American rock such as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, My Morning Jacket, and Death Cab for Cutie to create an ambient painting of passionate music for all.
