Credibility Matters: Is Music Xray Too Good To Be True?
Occasionally, someone points us to a blog or a social media post where people are questioning whether or not Music Xray is real, whether the opportunities listed on the site are legitimate, and whether the accounts are actually attended by the professionals listed.
We understand. The music business is full of companies, past and present, that make a lot of promises. On the surface, some of them appear to be very similar to Music Xray. Some of them prey upon the hopes and dreams of upstart musicians. It’s natural that questions are asked. But it’s important to know that Music Xray is an above-board company with wide industry adoption that operates with integrity and transparency.
We have written a lot about Music Xray’s business model, the technology behind the scenes and so forth. We won’t re-hash that here but we will include some useful links at the bottom of this post in case you want to check them out.

Reputable investors, who would never invest in a company that doesn’t operate completely above board, back Music Xray. See who they are here.
Music Xray hosts profiles of top level industry professionals who would not associate themselves with anything less than a reputable company. For example:
All these accounts are attended by A&R executives at these companies (not interns), and the celebrity artists attend their own accounts personally.
Music Xray verifies the identities of all the professionals who join the site and monitors all professional accounts to insure compliance with Music Xray’s Terms of Service. This includes no abuse of Music Xray’s submission fee policies. None whatsoever, of any type. We police the site continuously and we insure no one is simply trying to generate submissions so more fees are collected. More on that here.
Music Xray enables all artist users to rate the professionals they interact with and to comment on their profiles.
