how i know this is a con when you read the letter
Hey Jamie Sample,
Wanted to hit you up and tell you about the new record label founded by the creators of Stripped, Club Fiend, Club Statik-LA & Ace Of Spades called 272 Records. We are going to be releasing our third acoustic compilation record called "Acoustika - Vol. 3" - we thought your music would fit really well on the record. Artists already included on Acoustika Vol. 3 are:: Baby Strange, Down From Hollow, Lee Gray, Richard James, Matthew Lee, A Boy Named Sue, Glorification,Youne Jimi, Steve Furlong, Eyewaterlillies, JUBImusic, A River Curls Around The Town and Rodger Christmann. Our very first compilation Riot On Sunset has been released March 27th entitled "Riot On Sunset - Vol. 1" We will be releasing "Acoustika Vol. 3" to 25 college radio stations in California (which we will send all the station info to you upon the album release so your fans can call and request to hear your song) and distribute the record to Ameoba Music (Hollywood), Amazon.com and at all our club events here in Hollywood.
We really dig your music and of course would invite you to pick whichever song you think represents Jamie Sample the best and see if you would be interested in being on the record. To cover the costs of artwork, shipping, mastering and packaging, the cost to be on the record is only $99.00. We would also need for you to sign some paperwork saying it's ok to use the song. We would absolutely NOT own any copyrights or licensing at all. Let me know if it sounds like something you'd want to be a part of.
Acoustika Vol. 1 will be released on May 29th. Artists included on Vol.1 are: Emptyself, We Ghosts, In Lieu Of, Mecki, Darker, Baby Strange, Lesli, Orbis, Sean Saugen, Michael James, Departure, Josefina Sanner, Soresmile, Brawton, The Great Decent, Sarah Callander, David Amadio, Lucka, Nico Liebe and Mikko Heino.
