Signed to North Star Media
Urban pop duo Epoch Failure makes laid-back music that reflects their life mantra of “cold beers and high fives,” which they say is all they really ask for out of life. After applying for a deal with North Star Media through ReverbNation, the group was excited to be chosen for a recording contract and publishing deal. This isn’t the first time they’ve scored big through opportunities. In the past, Epoch Failure has been awarded opportunities to perform at the 2012 Hard Rock Cafe Battle of the Bands, NoDa Fall Musicfest, and had their song played on CBS Radio after being a Featured Artist on ReverbNation.
“We applied for placement on North Star Media’s artist roster for sync and licensing, and they believed in us and our music so much that they signed us for a recording contract and publishing deal. All in all, ReverbNation has really helped propel our career forward and until we recently signed with North Star Media, it was our go-to tool for getting on the inside track to the industry.”
Even after signing, the group says that they plan to keep applying for opportunities and hope that it will continue to help spread their songs to current and new fans. They just released their first official single with North Star Media: Check out their brand new video for the track “Where I’m Sposed to Be.”
