NEW YORK, Sept. 27 /CNW/ -- Finally there's a place where every kind of
music lover can connect -- MyTune.com. MyTune is a new interactive website
bringing together music fans, bands, and top industry professionals to present
fresh, up-and-coming artists with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity at being
discovered and making it big in an otherwise cutthroat industry. MyTune has
something for everyone -- bands, fans, and industry insiders. A place for
music hopefuls to showcase their talent, allowing fans and industry executives
alike the chance to find music's next best thing all on one website.
MyTune offers its members amazing social networking capabilities,
strictly catered to, and supported by, the music industry. It is the only site
that is sponsored by Major Record companies and Indy labels including:
Universal Music (Canada), Universal Music (US) (Interscope, Geffen, A&M),
Universal Music (UK), Verve Records (Canada), Sony BMG (US Nashville), Sony
BMG (Canada), HiBias Records (Canada), EMI Music (Canada), XM Radio (Canada),
Wind Up Records (Canada), Curve Music Canada, RCD Music, Iceberg Records,
Music Network/TiAmo Records (Canada), Warner Music Group (Canada), Bumstead
Productions (Canada), RCA/J Records (US), Jellybean Records (US), Rhino
Records (US), and Stonebridge Productions (Stockholm).
MyTune will bridge that ever-present gap between unknown artists and
industry executives. As esteemed record label executive and industry legend,
Russ Regan, noted, "MyTune is definitely going to be the bridge between the
dreamer and the dream maker -- So dreamers, get with it."
The MyTune concept is simple -- with their free MyTune membership, music
fans take the industry into their own hands, logging on to play, listen and
vote for the artist they think deserves a chance to get a record deal as well
as a number of other cash prizes. Every three months, the three bands with the
most votes will have their music heard by record industry executives who will
then choose their top pick, awarding that lucky band with $5K and the
opportunity to record a demo with a top producer. At the end of the year, the
four finalists will compete in an exclusive online MyTune battle of the bands
competition. The band with the most fan votes will win $25K and the chance to
sign with a major record label as the MyTune "Artist of the Year."
"MyTune allows artists, fans and industry professionals a chance to come
together in one place. MyTune enables people to take advantage of the digital
music revolution, and lets artists have a real chance of being discovered,"
states Kevin O'Keefe, CEO MyTune. "With an online component in addition to
post production facilities for audio and video -- MyTune is indeed a well
rounded media company where the industry plugs in."
