Keyz Had a Video Broadcast on Hundreds of College Campuses

Rap star Keyz has opened for the likes of Big Sean, E-40 and Fat Joe and has produced collaborations with Trump, Ciara, Freeway, Rookie Snow, Weebie, Big Poppa, DJBayBay, and many more. The hip hop artist spits lyrics that promote hard work, and aims to bridge the gap between Southern and West Coast styles in his music. In the past, Keyz was chosen for Best Rap Artist, Best Rap Video, & Best Duo in the 2011 Indie Music TV Channel Awards, was #1 on the ReverbNation charts for Shreveport, LA, and was featured on Snoop Lion’s Underground Heat.

“I’ve submitted to many opportunities through ReverbNation, and it felt truly awesome to be chosen for the Campus Nation Network opportunity. Knowing that my music was reviewed and chosen is motivation to keep making good music, and having the chance for millions of people to hear it is a blessing.”

Keyz says that he uses every experience he encounters to better his music. Be on the lookout for his new album, Lead By Example, coming soon.

“I will always submit for opportunities, because even when I get turned down it makes me step up my music game so I’ll be chosen the next time. Hard work never goes unrecognized. Thanks ReverbNation for showing indie artists major love and giving us great opportunities!”

Heard in Stores and Restaurants in Cities Across America

Face The King is an independent alternative hard rock band based out of Long Island that has taken the New York rock scene by storm. After performing two consecutive years with the biggest names in alternative rock on Warped Tour and producing three acclaimed EPs, the band is just getting started when it comes to their rock career. Thanks to an opportunity through Jupiter Music, Face The King got airplay in stores across the nation, including Subway, Dunkin’ Donuts and many more.

 

“We heard about this opportunity through ReverbNation – our band will never pass up any remote chance we get to spread our music and message to the masses. To be chosen for such an opportunity for our music to be played in over 1,500 stores across the country is a great feeling to say the least. We’re excited at the possibility of being in one of these stores for when a Face The King song starts playing.”
With their newly released preview EP, “THE SOUND,” already receiving high praise in anticipation for their full length album, the EP takes their music to new heights, giving a more clearly defined vision of what they’re all about – encouraging listeners to ‘listen to their heart,’ and uniting people of all different walks of life through the power of music. Face The King says they hope opportunities from ReverbNation allow them to keep spreading their music!

 

“Without a doubt we will continue to submit to more opportunities. The wonderful thing about them is that they are free and give every band an equal chance with nothing to lose. This is more of what the music industry should be about and we’re glad that ReverbNation is doing it right.

We would like to add a special thank you to both long time and new supporters of Face The King, as you are the heart and soul of this band. Most of where this project has gone was far beyond our expectations and we have the fans and ReverbNation to thank for it. Thank you for believing in us, and helping us to believe in ourselves. Rock on!”

Jammed Out at Rock’s Rhythm Masters from Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp & Modern Drummer Magazine

Mike Brennan had a chance to attend camp – but with more rockstars and drumsticks rather than bunk beds and canoes! The rock drummer was chosen to attend Rock’s Rhythm Masters, hosted in partnership by Modern Drummer Magazine and Rock n’ Roll Fantasy Camp. The camp took place November 8-10 at Rock n’ Roll Fantasy Camp’s headquarters in Las Vegas, featuring a grand finale performance at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. The camp featured some of rock’s greatest musicians, who have written, recorded, and toured with some of the biggest stars in the industry and have sold over a billion combined records. Performers and counselors at the camp played in bands for The Eagles, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks, James Taylor, John Lennon and more.

A California native, Mike Brennan has been playing music for 34 years, including drums, bass and guitar. In addition to performing, he writes instructional books and DVDs for beginning guitar lessons and an advanced lesson series for bass players.

Featured in Video Game App Mike V: Skateboard Party 2

Punk rockers Moovalaya will soon have their music featured in a videogame app their fans are sure to love; Mike V: Skateboard Party 2. Members Ben, Sean and Mitch are extremely excited to be featured in a game that also hits close to home, as they grew up skateboarding themselves.

“We actively browse all of the Reverbnation listings because some of the opportunities can be game changing. We’ve won a few now, and are always looking for more. This particular opportunity is by far one we are most excited for. We grew up skating and playing punk rock, and Mike Vallely is an amazing skateboarder/musician. To have song placement in the sequel of one of the top apps of all games with his name on it is going to be rad.”

Moovalaya would like to thank White Knight Music Group, Pulse Records, and RadRod Studio for making all of this possible. Check out their music and catch their New Year’s Eve show in Tempe, AZ with Authority Zero.

Scored a VIP Fastpass for America’s Got Talent Season Nine Auditions in Miami

Carly Jo Jackson struck a combination of luck and talent. Her talent is what earned her a pass to the front of the line at America’s Got Talent Season Nine Auditions. As luck would have it, the Florida crooner attends school just a few hours from the audition site – Miami. This was the first opportunity the folk singer-songwriter was chosen for through ReverbNation, Carly Jo plans to submit for more, especially after learning she was chosen for another opportunity as well!

“It really made me feel like a star to have a front-of-the line pass for America’s Got Talent, and the overall experience was amazing! When I realized that only a few artists are selected for this, it really made me realize I have something that can set me apart from other artists.

I am not going to be heard if I just sit and wait for something to happen. I truly believe in trying to make the most of every opportunity that comes my way and I am so appreciative of all that ReverbNation has to offer.”

Fast Cars and Free Music: Help Artists Race to the Finish in the FIAT® Band Prix

Musicians and fans, it’s time to shift into high gear! Voting for the FIAT® Band Prix began Tuesday, November 5 and will end Tuesday, November 19 at 10 a.m. ET. Act fast and get tons of free music before voting ends, and help determine which band will win a national TV appearance on VH1’s Top 20 Video Countdown!

Artists, the cool thing about getting votes in the FIAT Band Prix is that your fans vote for you by downloading your song. It’s really that simple, plus, there’s something in it for them too! Start inviting your friends, fans family and more to cast their votes by downloading your song on the FIAT USA Facebook page. We suggest posting to Facebook and Twitter, sending emails, and telling everyone through word-of-mouth! You’ll also notice that we built banners directly into your ReverbNation widgets, artist profile, band profile app, and FanReach email template; the banner redirects your fans to the app and automatically puts your song at the top!

Fans, you’ve gotta be 13 years old and you have to like the FIAT USA Facebook page in order to gain access to the thousands of free songs available for download. Each download counts as one vote, and you can only vote for a song once. You can vote for as many songs as you like, meaning you’ll be able to get hundreds of new songs to add to your own personal library. Check out the guide below to see how it’s done.

First, “like” the FIAT USA Facebook page (and check out the snazzy Band Prix cover photo!) Then click on the FIAT Band Prix Facebook app, circled below in blue.

FIAT USA Facebook Page ReverbNation Band Prix

Next, click the different genre tabs and scroll through the artists on the different pages! This is a great way to download and discover new music. Remember, if you click the link on your favorite artist’s ReverbNation page, or one that they post via Facebook and Twitter, it will automatically place their name at the top of the list. That will save you some time searching for them. Hit the “Download” button to download their song, which automatically casts your vote.

FIAT USA Facebook app ReverbNation Band Prix

And there you have it! You’ve voted! Feel free to share the image below to let your friends know! The FIAT brand will provide each of the Top 50 Artists (10 from each genre) with a one-year subscription to the Reverb Pro Package. The brand will award each of the four (4) runners up $3,000 and a Google+ Hangout sponsored and promoted by the FIAT brand. The Grand Prize winner will receive a trip to Miami to appear on VH1’s Top 20 Video Countdown on December 6th (airing on December 14th), $5,000 to spend toward new gear, and a Google+ Hangout sponsored and promoted by the FIAT brand.
