Have been reasonably happy with the performance of my back catalogue over the years. But for some reason, this year, I cannot get a submission accepted. It’s becoming increasingly frustrating waiting 15+ days for AJ to come back with their generic “not good enough but try again even though we haven’t given you any feedback to help you understand where you went wrong” response.
I’ve had some far more awful submissions accepted over the years (perhaps during a less stricter time?) and I can only think I’ve developed as an artist over time. It’s what makes the constant foray of rejections difficult to comprehend.
Here’s my latest rejection:
On some recent rejections, I was advised that perhaps I was a little too creative and experimental in some of my stuff. I cut it back, went the cookie-cutter route and followed the structure verbatim on a couple of top telling tracks. Still nothing.
Any feedback you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
