MONKEYBARS, INC. has announced the winners of its "Share a Song contest" during a presentation of the CLIMBING THE RUNGS AWARD event. Hip hop artist NATE MILLYUNZ was recognized as the winner of the contest, having received the most social fan shares out of all other artists on the MONKEYBARS platform. MILLYUNZ will receive a day of music mentoring in LOS ANGELES with MONKEYBARS Advisor and industry- heavy-weight KANNON CAVIAR CROSS, who is currently producing albums with artists, including NOREGA, E-40, T.I., TOO SHORT, TANK, JOE JONAS, GOODIE MOB, DMX, MACY GRAY and CEE LO GREEN.
During the CLIMBING THE RUNGS Award video announcement, three additional awards were presented for the categories of Best MONKEYBARS Soundcheck Emerging Artist, Best MONKEYBARS Soundcheck Emerging Duo/Band and MONKEYBARS Soundcheck Artist/Duo/Band with the Sickest Sound.
MONKEYBARS aims to change the music industry by giving control back to the artists who create the music. The MONKEYBARS Soundcheck campaign highlighted 30 artists in 30 days through social media channels to make this vision a reality.
"By spotlighting undiscovered talent we have brought awareness to numerous emerging artists out there trying to catch a break," said MONKEYBARS CEO STEVE KOSKIE. "It has been exciting to spotlight undiscovered artists over the course of the Soundcheck campaign, knowing that the MONKEYBARS platform gives these emerging artists a way to create new revenue streams with complete control of their content. I am proud to be a part of a platform that truly puts artists and their content before the industry."
