I received this invite from Sheila, who used to work at Bust magazine. Sheila was responsible for the most wonderful review we got in the Dec/Jan. issue with Parker Posey on the cover. Sheila left Bust and moved to England. Here is her letter:
I hope this e-mail finds you well! Some of you know me from beloved BUST magazine, or via Cha Cha Charming, record fairs, junior high gym class. Last year I packed up my NYC livin' and moved to London, England, where I work as head of A&R for Xenomania Records--the hit factory behind two of the UK biggest girl groups, Girls Aloud and Sugababes. We're currently working with Franz Ferdinand, Norwegian pop gal Annie, as well as developing new artists. I feel like I'm working at the Motown of the 21st century. It's so awesome.
I'm heading back to NYC from October 1st through the 22nd for the sole purpose of finding new artists for Xenomania, and we're holding open auditions for female singers the weekend of October 13 + 14th. I'm writing to ask for your help in spreading the word to your friends, sisters, cousins, daughters, neighbors, co-workers, fave unsigned bands/singers, everyone and anyone you know who wants to make it in music! I've attached the flyer below, and all the info can be found on our MySpace, http://www.myspace.com/xenomaniausa.
Lemme know if you need any other deets, and feel free to send MySpace links, demos, etc my way!
Thanks so much!
Thought I'd share this since most of you are women and some of you may know women artists who might benefit from this audition. You never know.
