ReverbNation.com reached a new milestone yesterday when it signed up its one millionth artist. “We’re humbled, but this is really a story about how vibrant the global Artist community is right now,” says COO and Co-Founder Jed Carlson. “For our part, we’ll continue doing what we do best – creating powerful tools and great opportunities for Artists and those the orbit them. ”
The 1,000,000th Artist to join the site is .. “PANA!“. In celebration of this, we will be providing this Artist with a nice prize package, including a ‘1,000,000th Artist Reverb T-shirt’.
Launched in October of 2006, ReverbNation has quickly become one of the most explosive and talked about music sites on the Internet today. Artists all over the world are enjoying the site’s ever-expanding number of features and services, such as Digital Distribution to major online retailers, festival and showcase submission opportunities, and direct-to-fan merchandising. ReverbNation is growing faster by the day and Mike Doernberg, CEO and Co-Founder of the site, does not believe the momentum will be slowing any time soon. “We recognize that the music business is way more than just selling discs or downloads,” he says. “The scope of what we do for the Artist will continue to grow, and if we keep delivering real value to them, we expect that they will keep joining the Nation.”
Reaching one million artists could not have happened without the support of all of the amazing artists, venues, labels, and fans that have made ReverbNation what it is today. We would like to thank each and every one of you for all of your support through the years. Since the site’s birth, we have heard a lot of great music. We have also seen some of the most hilarious, interesting, (and sometimes just plain vulgar) band names ever created. In honor of reaching one million artists, we would like you to vote on your favorite band name in each of the following categories:
FUNNIEST – You WILL laugh.
MOST BIZARRE – Band names that MUST have an interesting backstory.
MOST CLEVER – Band names that we wish we would have thought of.
Be sure to vote for your favorites! The winning band in each category will receive a full year of our Reverb Press Kits service for FREE!
