Performing at Cavendish Beach Music Festival 2013…

Mike Bravener is an exciting Rockabilly/Classic Country entertainer from the East Coast of Canada. He says he was “surprised and jubilant all within 30 seconds” when he found out he was chosen to perform at the Cavendish Beach Music Festival, now the home of the largest multi-day outdoor music festival in Atlantic Canada. More than 50,000 visitors annually flock to the festival for the biggest names in country music, camping, dining, the warmest waters north of the Carolinas and to create memories that last a lifetime.

“I heard about this opportunity through ReverbNation and applied. It was just that easy. I had applied in the past for this festival and had been rejected or put on file, but perseverance is the key. I have been very fortunate in my career to have performed “Elvis Tribute” shows with DJ Fontana, Elvis’ drummer 1955-1968 and Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame Member and he keeps encouraging to apply. ‘Somebody somewhere will love what you do eventually.’ 

-Mike Bravener

Played the LifeLight Festival in Missouri…

 Spencer Kane at the Lifelight Festival - Missouri.

Spencer Kane at the LifeLight Festival – Missouri.

After reviewing hundreds of submissions, the folks at LifeLight Festival — a non-profit that offers festivals free of admission so that all may go to hear the Gospel message —  invited pop act Spencer Kane and his Kane Krew to compete at their Missouri festival for a few different possible results. If he won, he’d automatically be invited back in 2014 as a main stage headliner act. The result: HE WON! In addition, he’ll get to tour all 20 festivals this summer. Here’s what he has to say about his experience:

“I met several other national recording artists at the festival and made a lot of new fellow artist friends as well as gained a lot of new fans. I’m happy to report that this summer will be my first real touring summer after having toured earlier this spring to 6 states. This single event, however, was a highlight of my year.”

-Spencer Kane

Scored a feature with the AU Review online music publication…

A young explorer at heart, Merry Ellen Kirk challenges the stigma of the formulaic love song, daring her audience to consider the world in a new light. Her lyrics weave tales of heartbreak & fragility, tension & resolution, deep longing & what-could’ve-beens, on a contrasting musical fabric of playful melodies and saccharine vocals.  Though she’s been selected for various showcases and features through ReverbNation’s Opportunities program, she says it was an amazing feeling to get the magic “Congratulations!Your submission has been accepted!” from the AU Review, a publication that provides readers with unbiased & independent reviews frrom writers around Australia.

I’ve been a member of ReverbNation for years and I submit to the free opportunities in my genre as often as possible. I’m excited for this feature with the AU Review. They’ve been really great about communicating so far, and I’m looking forward to the feature & interview.

-Merry Ellen Kirk

Rocked out at Wakarusa Music Festival 2013…

With influences ranging from jazz, blues and funk to progressive, psychedelic and electronic, Soap skillfully fuses all of these genres into one: dance infused rock. The band got picked through ReverbNation’s Opportunities program to grace the stage of Wakarusa Music Festival on May 31st, a grassroots festival nestled in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas where the beauty of nature synchronizes with the euphoric sounds of live music. Other also performing there included Snoop Lion, Dispatch, The Black Crowes and STS9. Well done Soap, well done.

Rocked the stage at MOVE Music Festival 2013…

Chris McCarty — the singer-songwriter who, when faced with the decision between music and basketball, chose music — is also a charismatic performer who is known for writing catchy hooks, and meaningful songs that have helped him play hundreds of gigs in the U.S. According to his bio, McCarty has shared the stage with the legendary James Brown, Dave Mathews Band, Jason Mraz, Colbie Callait, Sugar Ray, G Love and Special Sauce, Blues Traveler, Robert Randolph and the Family just to name a few. This year, McCarty got to rock the stages of MOVE Music Festival, which consists of approximately 100 acts performing at venues across Albany, New York. Right on!

More Winners: DK & the Joy Machine, Firebug, Seven Story Fall, Lisa Torres

DK & the Joy Machine played at the Brooklyn Half Marathon 2013: "It was really fun! The runners were really into it. They'd pass by the stage area and clap or yell or shout out, "hey, a dulcimer!" I was impressed! It's great to play for such an appreciative audience."

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.

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.”

A Montauk Music Festival veteran, Oogee Wawa’s guitarrist JP says the 4-day music celebration gets better every year. “It’s such a positive vibe out there and we always seem to be more excited about it every time it comes around,” he said. “Plus, the bon fire jam parties we throw at the end of every night are pretty epic.”

“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!!”

ReverbNation band wins the 2013 Hard Rock Rising Global Battle of the Bands! Drum roll, please…

Over 12,000 bands entered for a chance
to win an opportunity of a lifetime.

Only one was left standing: The Carnabys survived three rounds of voting, battling it out on the live stage and securing thousands of votes online to make the Top 25 in Hard Rock Rising 2013 – THE global battle of the bands contest held by Hard Rock Cafe in exclusive partnership with ReverbNation.

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:
