THE A&R LIVE HOOKUP & MUSIC REVIEW
Each A&R Live Hookup includes one industry guest (typically a major label A&R Director or A&R Manager), moderator-music consultant and 8-12 attendees logged into our website playlist from around the world. The format of the session includes an attendee and industry executive get-to-know-you session, question and answer, and record company A&R demo review and live feedback session.
During A&R Live Hookup demo review session our industry guest will listen to your music through our website playlist and give you live feedback on the spot by phone. If the industry guest likes your music they will request it from you personally and instruct us to provide you with their direct contact info to work your situation to the next level. Now the ‘next level’ is up to your follow-up, hustle, execution, and of course your music. That’s it! The A&R Live Hookup gives you direct access to some of the most sought-after executives in the music industry, all from the privacy of your phone!

A&R Hookup guarantees attendees will talk live with A&R
executives by phone, have their music heard real-time and receive live
