We’ve got a unique opportunity to nominate ReverbNation artists that are set to break to the New Music Seminar’s “Top 100 Artists on the Verge” chart — the most comprehensive chart to date for emerging artists in America.
Every year, New Music Seminar (NMS) hand crafts this chart to promote artists who are already picking up steam, helping them break through the noise and get the national recognition they deserve. Many of the artists chosen for the chart will perform at the 2012 NMS New York Music Festival, June 17th-21st.
The NMS delegates will choose the winning artist on the last day of the conference. In addition to the unparalleled exposure, the winning band gets more than $200,000 in marketing, promotion, music equipment and consultations from some of the top industry leaders.
NMS’s mission to create a music business in which artists can rise to their highest potential based solely on merit, “fits perfectly with ours here at Reverb — artist first,” said Mike Doernberg, ReverbNation CEO and a panelist at the Seminar in New York. “That’s why we’re delighted to be a part of both the Seminar and Artists on the Verge.”
