Madalyn Sklar Recommends...

When it comes to getting your CD mastered and manufactured you want it simple and easy. Am I right? I know we've all been through our share of disappointments, missed deadlines and errors when it comes to getting our CD just right and ready for launch. This Fall marks the 9th year I've put together the annual GoGirlsMusicFest Compilation CD. It's in conjunction with our annual GoGirlsMusicFest benefit showcase series across the country. (http://www.gogirlsmusicfest.com/)

I'm here to share my good fortune and experience with two top-notch companies in the industry. First Mike Milchner of Sonic Vision Mastering. This is my first year working with Mike and I am completely wow'd by his professionalism and experience. He has totally exceeded my expectations. And we know how rare that can be in this biz.

Second, I'm thrilled to once again work with Jim Cocke and his great team at Crystal Clear. They are the kings of CD manufacturing! They currently have our CD in production and I'm amazed at how easy they made this for me.

Here is the bottom line: with these two companies you get personal attention. I know, real customer service is becoming obsolete because many are getting too "corporate", making it about their bottom line, not you the customer.

Those who know me well know I willl not work with just any company. In the sea of music businesses, I look for those with professionalism and integrity. I look for companies that will take care of you and me.

Make your production the best that it can be. Sonic Vision provides world class mastering to the independent music community at extremely reasonable rates. 20 plus years of experience will put the finishing touches on your music that will ensure impressive first impressions and preserve long term enjoyment. Hear for yourself with their free no obligation demo. Just visit their website for all the details and mention GoGirlsMusic for a 10% discount. We highly recommend it!

They rock! Plain and simple. You know, there are so many CD manufacturers out there but who really knows their stuff and cares about the customer? Hands down, it's Crystal Clear. Give 'em a call and see why we are happy customers! -- Madalyn Sklar

I am so determined that I enter many online and local talent competitions and the next big one will be in Oct in Chicago for America's Got Talent 2010. I did this last year and will every year until I win the hearts of the judges. If there is any woman or women at all! out there with gGo girls or otherwise that would or can help me, I would greatly, greatly appreciate it. I think I deserve after all these years in music, a chance to.



If you don't think that I have talent worth listening to, then at least check out my website and tell me that. Why is no one ackwoledging the women from wisconsin. This is why I have not become an Elite member. I will not pay a fee to be ignored. Sorry but talent is not just in Chicago, California, Florida or Vegas. I really need someone to write me and tell me how to get my ball rolling. I am not in a band at this point but have been. I read the articles all the time. Many of you having nothing at all to complain about. At least you have cds, a group to work with and people that help you!.



I am a solo act that does thou have recording studio experience and lots of band and choir experience. I am also, trying to get noticed and have people hear what I have to offer. It must be nice to be on a compiliation cd or having parties for your first record release. Sorry, but In order to do this, I need to have my job back (laid off) for six months and counting, I also have kids to raise (young teenagers) and the means to record materical. I don't know how to do this on my own even thou I do the best I can.



I have two songs that were recorded professionally years ago on my site, but this fell apart afterwards and everyone loss touch with each other. Nothing became of my songs. I write lyrics but not music. I am even learning how to play guitar but this takes along time to perform on your own and my vocal cords are my insturment. Please help and acknowledge the woman that don't live in the big cities.



I hope to hear from someone!. Thank You SandraLee W. (WI)
