Rose to the Top in the FIAT USA Band Prix powered by ReverbNation
ReverbNation and FIAT USA teamed up to invite more than 6,000 independent musicians to submit their best songs, all for a chance to catch their big break – an appearance on VH1. Privet Earth stole the show and were featured on VH1, but fan votes sent four additional bands to the finals. These bands snagged the most votes in the country for their genres, including alternative, urban, pop and rock.
“This wasn’t our first time submitting for an opportunity on ReverbNation, but it’s definitely the first time we won something like THIS. It felt KRAZY (with a K!) when FIAT called me at home, I actually thought somebody was pranking me, but it wasn’t a prank! It was reality. We are constantly submitting for new opportunities, fingers crossed that we get chosen again. Let’s Blitz-Rock!” –Ivan Smirnov of Privet Earth
