lol @ the comments under A&R.. well I actually have a real comment about A&Rs;. They used to be for developing and nuturing the artists actual talent. Nowadays that entire dept in record labels has been reformed. Their new job is moreso to recruit and make sure they are staying within the lines of the image that the record label is aiming to form out of the artist and push them as such.

How do you get in contact with an A&R if you’re persuing a writer’s career?
