It may come across as a good idea initially but ultimately I can't see this as anywhere near a viable business.

Aside from mix/mastering services (which are already readily available) I don't see this as being anything more than purchasing a name to be slapped on your album as a "guest" appearance, which is lame enough to begin with. Plus, the prices are hidden behind a "sign-up wall", so go ahead and draw your own conclusions there...

Honestly, make it on your own or don't bother. If you have to buy your way into credibility through the services of established musicians then this genre (or any, really) doesn't need you.

I appreciate that these guys are trying to find a different business model to support themselves, but I also would like to see this concept expanded to include struggling musicians as well to help the unknowns to increase their exposure. Sure, this exists in local and some regional areas, but to enable unsigned musicians to reach a global audience could be a good step forward.

They are available for lessons as well. And the photog might be able to prosper from this as well. I think it's a good thing.
