500 ReverbNation Artists Compete for Dodge Dart Commercial: Download, Vote, Help Choose the Winner!

You may know of Dodge as the auto-manufacturer made famous by such marvelous machines as the Charger, Challenger, Super Bee, and the compact-class Dart. Back in the 60s and 70s, these straight-line speedsters exemplified American Muscle: two-doors, 8 cylinders, and more horsepower than a Napoleon parade through the Arc de Triumph. Over the last few years, the company has made a complete overhaul to their current line of autos. This year, “Little brother” Dart returns to market with a new body, new interior, and 21st century features to compete with a growing compact class.

“Why the automobile history lesson on your favorite music marketing blog?”
…Drum roll please….

Dodge "Inspired By You' contest

500 handpicked ReverbNation artists are competing for the chance to represent the all-new 2013 Dodge Dart.  What do we mean by ‘represent’? How about having your song featured in a commerical for the all-new Dart!!

Dodge’s music experts scoured ReverbNation for the best indie artists in 5 main genres. Thousands of invites were issued, and songs were reviewed based on their creativity, musicianship, and recording quality. The competition was fierce! They received far more submissions than expected. There were thousands of superbly written songs in all genres. Ultimately, they could only choose 500 with the right mix.  Accepted artists were notified and preparations began for an incredible fan-powered contest…

Beginning today, anyone with a valid Facebook account may vote for an artist by downloading their song: one download = one vote. You may only vote for an artist once, but you can vote/download songs from as many artists as you like. Voting is open for 2 weeks, until July 29 at 11:59pm EDT. The “Inspired By You” Contest is hosted on Dodge’s Facebook Page.

Get FREE Music and Vote »

Ending July 30, the top 3 highest vote-getters in each genre will become finalists. Along with winning a cash prize, our 15 Finalists will be tasked with writing a brand new song that exemplifies the award-winning all-new 2013 Dodge Dart. They’ll have 3 weeks to conceive, record, produce, and master a single-style ‘Inspired By You’ song. Talk about pressure!

Beginning August 20th, the ‘Inspired By You’ songs from our 15 finalists will be featured on Dodge’s Facebook page for the whole world to hear. Dodge’s panel of music reviewing experts will take one week to review the compositions. They’ll be judged based on creativity, musicianship, and quality. Finally, on August 27, Dodge will announce the two runnerups and a single grand prize winner. They’ll all receive exposure on Dodge’s online properties, but the big ticket item is a solo dance.

The grand prize winning Inspired By You song will earn the amazing opportunity to be featured in a brand new Dodge commercial!
