Default I got contacted about a possible article

Dunno if anyone else got this, but just in case, I thought I'd bring it up here.

Subject: Opportunity For Lifestream Feature Article With Taylor Davis

Body: Hi there, my name is Gary and I work with violinist Taylor Davis. Her Facebook page and official website can be found here:

https://www.facebook.com/TaylorDavisViolin
www.TaylorDavisViolin.com

Taylor is a talented musician with a passion for video games and other pop culture music, including that of movies and anime. She has entire albums of original arrangements dedicated to both video games and anime, which I encourage you to check out for yourselves. Here is one such Final Fantasy arrangement for your enjoyment:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPnElw4TloE

I'd like to talk with you about the possibility of featuring Taylor's work on your website, via either an interview, article, or other type of contribution. I know that The Lifestream homepage is constantly updated with fresh FF-themed articles, and I think a piece about Taylor would fit perfectly. Though her musical work showcases a broad range of series, she has several songs that are specific to the Square Enix brand that you could focus on if you would like. She has had articles featured in various media outlets including Kotaku, Polygon, The Daily Dot, and fan sites such as yours.

I hope that you will be able to help in her quest to gain more exposure towards video game and anime fans everywhere. Reflexively, Taylor has a large and ever-growing fan base, some of whom I'm sure would would to check out your website when they hear about the article. I can offer your staff access to Taylor's new album, The Anime And Game Collection, so that you can listen for yourselves and see if this is something you would like to pursue. Please let me know what you think. You can reply to this email. Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you soon!

Regards,
Gary Reinhard

I've come across her stuff on youtube in the past, I like it. I especially like her Price of Freedom cover.

I also enjoy people coming to us for exposure for a change instead of the other way around

Just out of curiosity, did they come through the chat, or is your email address available through one of the articles or similar?

If we can come up with any good interview questions, I think we should work that into it as well, instead of just writing a straight up article. Ohhh maybe even record an interview via Skype or something that she could upload onto her YouTube channel when we release the article that we would write up about her?

Why's this thread hidden away in the elitist bastard central? Nothing private or sensitive in here,

Also obvious marketing is obvious, but, I'm okay with it.

Might have been because the person contacting Ryu wanted it to be a surprise, but I guess the moment's lost Also it was an email signed with his this guy's real name. *shrug* Sure there's a reason Ryu posted it where he posted it.

Uhm, I don't know if I'm reading wrong or not, but they want us to do an interview with Taylor and feature it here. It's not us to be featured.

Though, yes, there is that chance for new, fresh faces to come here as well.

It just seems that the lot of you think it's us being featured by her - when it's the other way around. Still, I agree with LicoriceAllsorts, and think it's a win-win.
