Here at Music Xray we don't always hear about all the success stories because once an artist and an industry professional are in touch they do deals directly. We don't get involved. We don't take a cut and we don't have any way of tracking those deals either.

Avala DSF Music Group's Top Woman Combines Music and Women's Football

Mia Bajin of Avala DSF Music Group, is a renowned Record Label and Management Executive with international experience. She’s honed her skills in business development, sports development, and marketing of major brands and artists around the world.

In the fall of 2012, she was seeking indie music to be featured at the 1st National Women’s American Football Tournament in Southeast Europe. Mia can be congratulated for running the very first successful women’s football team on the Balkans, known as the “Angel Duchesses.” This is where she deemed Music Xray a valuable tool to finding great music for the event that was followed by“national media for a good cause called, Battle for the Babies.

Furthermore, due to finding many artists to feature on the “Tournament Opportunity” through Music Xray, Mia says they are “now working on a short documentary from the tournament, where we'll include only Music Xray artists who have been submitting, not just for the 'Tournament Opportunity,' but all of our opportunities.” (January 2013)

Just in case you’re wondering who she’s worked with in the past, some Music Xray artists include: Dukes of Da Ville, Joe Cameron, and Filipe.

Raven Studios Skeptical at first and now Convinced
Raven Studios

At first I was skeptical to begin using your site, but now I am really positive. You guys are helping many people that are heavily involved in the music business such as artists, publishers, etc… And your site makes it allot easier to handle demo submissions and communicate with artists. The statistics rating system is really cool since now we are now able to view the statistics and get an overall view of the music/artists we receive demo submission from.

Mango Reel Signs Artist Within One Week of Using Music Xray to Source New Music
Mango Reel Success Story

At Mango Reel we continue to expand our licensing catalogue for TV, Film, Video Games and Advertising placements and looked at Music Xray as a platform for finding new artists. Music Xray allowed us to audition and pre-qualify artists really quickly with their online submission process. Within a week we had signed ‘Erin Hunt’ to our licensing catalogue and we’re promoting her release ‘Meet Me In The Middle’ online. Music Xray also put us in touch with several other acts who are sending their work - which we hope to sign to Mango Reel’s roster over the next couple of weeks. We have a very picky selection criteria and the quality of submissions has been excellent. We look forward to hearing and working with more artists through Music Xray in the future.

Michael Jay Finds Music Xray to be a Better Way to Organize Submissions
Michael Jay Great Unknowns Presents

"When my radio show was listed on Indie Bible last December, the amount of people that sent me emails and flooded my mailbox with CD's increased by 938%. I needed a way to help me organize my music submissions. After I joined Music X-Ray, I was able to filter out the amount of 'junk' music submissions and my service has become more streamlined and manageable.

I love Music X-ray's service, because their program helps me organize my music submissions all in one place versus having a folder in my email that I have to organize myself. Plus, I don't have to wait for CD's to come in the mail. It's all at my finger tips."

Sweet Rosie Music, a successful music publishing firm had stopped accepting unsolicited material but decided to give Music Xray a try. They recently reported to us that they've done two deals since they began and that the deal-to-submission ratio is more than 10 times greater than any other method of accepting unsolicited material.

Thanks to Sweet Rosie for sharing that valuable feedback and for giving Music Xray a shot.
