Maximizing Music Xray – by Norman Dolph

Posted by Mike McCready | November 25th, 2014 | 1 Response

Norman Dolph, an industry professional who uses Music Xray (and he also uses it as a songwriter) recently let us know he is about to publish a book called “Maximizing Music Xray”. He sent a draft of it to us so we could proofread it for any inaccuracies and we must say, he did a bang up job of laying it out there.

The book will be released in a few weeks and we have reached an agreement with Norman which will allow us to give away some promotional copies. Otherwise it will be available from Amazon in both physical and digital editions. We’re pretty excited about this.

Here at Music Xray we recognize how important it is that musicians, songwriters, & bands be able to trust that song submissions via Music Xray indeed reach the professionals to whom they are submitted. They must be able to trust that the professional accounts on the site are real, and that the professionals have been vetted. It’s important that our users know that the professional community is monitored and that no abuse of Music Xray’s submission fee model is occurring.
While this has always been a priority, we’ve recently reinforced our team to help us insure the quality of our professional community.  These professionals help us recruit, vet, and manage the growing number of professional accounts on Music Xray.
