No disrespect taken, and none given, but I got the point. Let me clarify a few things:
(1) I'm not trying to get signed. It's true I've done some work with the group, but I'm in no way making the decision here. I suggested that they try to build more of a buzz, make sure the demo has only their best tracks, and basically, I said to forget about the demo for now. The group decided they still wanted to do it. Why?
(2) Because they have an inside connection (relationship) at the label. It's something they feel needs to be taken advanage of ASAP. I'm not so sure - I asked them if the connection is going anywhere and why not wait a while longer? Well, I guess the guy expects the demo now because his girl was hyping the music up and it just got assumed somewhere that he was gonna got a demo of it. So now they feel obligated - beats me.
I hear what you're saying - I told everyone in the group to not do it because IMO their buzz isn't big enough, and honestly, IMHO the product isn't quite quality enough yet. But I don't make the decisions cause I'm not the one who would get signed.
