Can you please start to REQUIRE musicians to post a streaming link to their song? (Soundcloud, Spotify, etc). I'm sick of spending $42 to get in contact with someone who is "about to go into the studio".
I believe this will eliminate 3 common problems that I've seen:
1) Customer's who aren't really serious musicians. Pros can hear the song and know that the artist is being honest. They have a recorded song. This is not someone who is dillusional. No "I'm about to get in the studio real soon..." messages.
2) Songs that are offensive to the pros. Pros can decide if they want to work with the artist based on the song. I'm also sick of paying $42 to find out that it's a rap song about killing cops. Call me narrow minded, but I would pass if I knew this up front.
3) It would crack down on the jobs posted by minors. I've responded to a number of customers that turned out to be 14-16 years old.
@StoriesUpSTL you bring up some valid concerns and I think that this is a great suggestion. I'll be sure to pass this feedback along to our Product Team to look into.
