Monkeybars Launches New Artist 'Soundcheck'
October 25, 2012 at 3:49 AM (PT)
MONKEYBARS, INC., a socially-driven website that financially rewards artists and fans for distributing and recommending content online, came out of beta today with a new way of showcasing emerging artists -- MONKEYBARS SOUNDCHECK. The campaign, which runs until NOVEMBER 13th, spotlights 30 emerging artists in 30 days by recognizing undiscovered talent in the music industry and empowering new artists to own their digital content.
Each day through NOVEMBER 13th, one emerging artist will be promoted on MONKEYBARS’ social media profiles and website. Campaign followers can visit channels daily to discover the latest featured artist, listen to their story, download their music, and share the artist’s content across their own social network. Additionally, artists who upload their music to MONKEYBARS between OCTOBER 15th and NOVEMBER 11th at midnight PT will be entered into the Share a Song contest. The artist with the most social fan shares will be recognized at the CLIMBING THE RUNGS AWARD SHOW on November 15th and will win a day of music mentoring in LOS ANGELES with MONKEYBARS Advisor KANNON CAVIAR CROSS.
"MONKEYBARS is an advocate and platform for emerging artists, so it was only fitting that we launch a campaign to spotlight undiscovered talent," CEO STEVE KOSKIE said. "It’s exciting and rewarding to partner with artists and affect true, positive change in the music industry. In giving artists complete control over the monetization of their music, MONKEYBARS enables emerging musicians to take back the ownership of their content."
