I signed a music contract with tate music group 3/2008. So far they have done verry little to sell my music, it looks like I have made a bad mistake. Does any one know if Tate music group is a scam? I ...
I am amazed that people will go onto an uncontrolled and monitored blog site and say things that are just not correct and have no accountability. I absolutely dare anyone to take my offer (which no one ever seems to want to take) to give me a call and speak personally with me about any issue. I am glad to talk man to man and not resort to the childishness so present on the internet. Talk to the people who know and can help you. Got a question? Then call. Dr. Richard Tate, 1-888-361-9473.
P.S. - Retaliating against the people who are complaining about you on the blog site in which they are complaining about you and calling them childish and cowardly (implied by saying they won't speak to you "man-to-man") is probably not the most professional image you could portray. I would expect more from a Record Label. Might I suggest responding to each complaint individually to resolve the situations and clear the air? You clearly have some damaged relationships with your artist/clients that are in dire need of repair.
I have alot of complaining about my relationships with Tate Music group. For several weeks i have been calling our rep and follow up on getting my artist a show, but all we get are"we are working on to get her a gigs" So what we have learned is that majority of the artists book their own gigs. And for Dr Tate. I have called you several times in the last 4 months and yet, i havent recieve any call back from you or from any of your staff..
Please note my positive comment under Scott McCarthy. Also, what lazy people! You are not a 'name" in music, but you expect a career, venues, etc. handed to you! This generation would never have survived the Great Depression... won World War I or II... and therefore this discussion would be mute, because we would have no freedom of speech!
My band signed with Tate. They have definitely helped us to the next level. It was/is hard work... still. If you're looking for instant fame and gratification don't sign with anyone because you will continue to be disappointed. If you are willing to keep working hard and follow the advice. Tate Music is a good place to start
Ye ole "Let the buyer beware".
My son had music on MTV on the net..........songs he wrote..........copywrited................dropped out due to unsrupulous people.
Instant fame comes to few but more are now getting it due to U-Tube.
Then again it is not the quantity but the quality that will survive in the end.
Where did your fame of posting under ALA's get you gypskey. Your down to LD now.
