Got a feature in the May issue of Cen Cal Magazine…

Pop musician Marina V from LA.

Pop musician Marina V from LA.

Marina V is a Russian-born recording artist with a hauntingly beautiful voice, whose melodic and passionate music has been influenced by the Beatles, Tchaikovsky and Tori Amos. This month, Marina was featured on Cen Cal Mag, a new online magazine about art, music, food and fashion in Central California.

“Thank you ReverbNation for being so awesome! I’ve been submitting for the last two years to the RN opportunities and have won several, including magazine features, video features and a couple of radio shows. When the Cen Cal Magazine feature came out, they tweeted about my music and posted on their FB page as well, which was really cool.”

Played the Carolina Railhawks postgame party…

Folk-rock band Pinkerton Raid performing at Carolina Railhawks postgame party.

Folk-rock band Pinkerton Raid performing at Carolina Railhawks postgame party.

A family band, Pinkerton Raid is consisted of siblings Jesse, Katie and Steven, plus husband and wife Tim and Laura Wooten on drums and a second keyboard, respectively. The band came together in the retro-pop renaissance of North Carolina’s Triangle region, sharing strong influences like the Beatles, Fleetwood Mac and Neil Young with a core of local acts. Jesse, a soccer fan, was really excited to perform at a stadium with thousands of other soccer lovers. Plus, he knew that playing at the Carolina Railhawks postgame party wouldn’t be just another nightclub gig: the band would get exposure to an audience they might not otherwise reach.

“We had won a couple of previous opportunities, but this was by far the best. It was a well-paying gig and gave us exposure to an audience we might not otherwise reach. For us, making music is all about bringing people together. We try to make music that people at different places in life can get into. A family sporting event turned out to be a great place for us to do that.”

“To be highlighted in what is becoming a huge festival over 100s of bands is an amazing feeling.  When you put in as much work and sacrifice into your music as we do, it’s awesome to get noticed for it.  We are extremely grateful!!”

Hip hop artist from Long Beach, CA, Deedub played the Lunar Independent Music Festival.: " I submit to a lot of opportunities on Reverbnation and I have been connected to many events, awards, publications, and online radio through the opportunities system.  It works great and basically helps us to get the kind of exposure that people pay PR firms for.  Which helps save our budget for other things like music production. The Lunar Music Fest went great, there were several venues with live music and we were invited to play a few different gigs through the event.  We headlined the main show at The Complex main stage which holds about 800-1000 people so it was one of our bigger shows to date."

Chosen as the grand-prize winner by a panel of music industry experts, The Carnabys secured a spot on the bill at the Hard Rock Calling festival in London as part of a WORLD TOUR. “This year we saw some really high-level competitors and with such an amazing prize on the line, the scoring process for all of us on the judging panel was more difficult than ever before,” said John Kirkpatrick, Hard Rock International’s Head of Music & Artist Relations.

“Ultimately it was The Carnabys who stood out because of their songwriting, musicianship and performance level. We look forward to welcoming them to our Hard Rock stages!”

In addition to sharing the stage with Bruce Springsteen, The Black Crowes, Zac Brown Band and Alabama Shakes, The Carnabys won tons of new band gear, earned the opportunity to make an album and video with Hard Rock Records, and are lined up to go on a World Tour with stops in amazing cities such as Sydney, Chicago, Tokyo, and Honolulu. Now that’s rock star treatment.

Let’s not forget about this year’s two runner ups: Bop Skizzum and Sunwill! With $10,000 worth of new band gear and their music exposed to new fans around the world, they’re certainly not going home empty-handed. Check ’em out here:
