Featured in Papercut Magazine…
Electropop artist Ze!, of Kuala Lumpur, was featured in the first ever music edition of Papercut Magazine. This year, Ze! won the VIMA Best Music Video of the Year for In the House. When asked about her greatest achievement of 2012, Ze! said:
“I was performing at a gig in the South of France with Joachim Garraud singing our new single I’m Invaded and the crowd of thousands went wild. Watching the guards trying to control the kids from breaking the barriers was just mind blowing!”
Featured on The Gunz Show…
“Our interview on The Gunz Show went really well and was a great opportunity for us. The interview was really laid back and a lot of fun to do and Gunz is an awesome guy to work with. There were 56,000 listeners during our time slot and we got a bunch of new Facebook likes and Twitter followers during the show so it was definitely a great promotional opportunity for the band and really good exposure to a wider audience. (…) We have ‘won’ and been chosen for several other opportunites through ReverbNation and find it to be a great tool for helping to get our music out to fans and members of the industry.”
-The Baby Grand
Headlined the CMJ Convention Showcase…
“It was the usual packed, rowdy, high-energy KILLCODE show, but what surprised us the most was a surprise guest appearance and performance before our show from Geoff Tate, the legendary QUEENSRŸCHE frontman and one of the most acclaimed vocalists in the history of hard rock and heavy metal! It was great sharing the stage with him! It was also refreshing to see three independent companies that support independent artists, Horn’s Up Rocks, Skateboard Marketing and ReverbNation, work so well together! They put on one hell of a show/party!”
Featured in Daily Unsigned…
R&B group Legaci of Vallegjo, CA was featured in Daily Unsigned. In 2010, Legaci went viral on YouTube with their cover of Justin Bieber’s Baby, attracting the attention of Bieber and his manager, Scooter Braun. Legaci was asked to go on tour with Bieber, and to date has performed at more than 130 of his shows.
Featured on 94.4FM Salford City Radio…
Manchester-based band Semitt Falls was the ReverbNation Featured Artist on 94.4FM Salford City Radio. Semitt Falls plays a unique blend of genre-bridging music, fusing elements of metal, drum and bass, dance and more to produce a truly one-of-a-kind sound.
