What if you were given the opportunity to perform alongside punk legends The Damned, Orange Goblin, and Ruts/Ruts DC? How RAD would that be?! Well, these are just a few of the bands headlining the 2017 Camden Rocks Festival on June 3, 2017. Camden Rocks Festival sees over 8,000 live music lovers along with agents, managers, A&R, and publicists take over Camden Town for the most rock n’ roll one day-er of the year. With over 250 bands throughout 25 venues, Camden Rocks gives up-and-coming bands the chance to be heard – it’s manic and intimate all at once. We got with festival organizer Chris McCormack – formerly the driving force behind Creation Records ‘Britrock’ quartet 3 Colours Red and promoter behind Camden’s finest gig and club nights – to get an inside look at what goes down day of the festival, what he looks for when booking bands, and why Camden Town has long been the hub of the UK’s rock ‘n’ roll scene.
Everyday the music industry seeks out ReverbNation artists to book on stages, license their songs, sign to labels and more through exclusive opportunities. To celebrate the hundreds of emerging artists selected for these opportunities, we’re going to share a random sample of five every week on this blog. Let’s go!
We’re so excited to announce Savannah Lynne as the Winner of the Marriott Rewards® Card Battle of the Bands! After weeks of fan voting, Savannah was selected through an exclusive ReverbNation opportunity to open for country music star Tyler Farr! Read on to learn about her experience.
Hi Savannah Lynne, congratulations on winning the Marriott Rewards® Credit Card Battle of the Bands! You grew up on the islands of Hawaii and moved to Nashville when you were 14. How did both environments influence your music style? Growing up on Maui, I was surrounded by many different types of music which also included country. I found I was drawn more to country than the other genre, however I did listen to many other genres during this time as well which is reflected in my first EP “Aloha Nashville.” After living in Nashville for the past 3 years, the other genres still make their appearances in much of my writing even though I would classify myself as a country-pop artist, I don’t only write country-pop songs. I like many of my songs to straddle so many lines that depending on the producer who cuts the song, they could fall into more than just the country-pop genre.
After weeks of fan voting, we’re excited to announce the three finalists of the Marriott Rewards® Credit Card Battle of the Bands who will be competing for the chance to open for Tyler Farr later this week. Read on to meet the finalists.
