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.
