New Music Seminar And OurStage Present "Artist On The Verge"!

"Artist on the Verge" is a closed competition for nominated artists who have privately been notified.

NMS founders Dave Lory and Tom Silverman are on the lookout for the best up-and-coming artists and are going to give them a jump-start to their career. With this mission in mind, the New Music Seminar and OurStage are launching the "Artist on the Verge" Competition. This is a closed competition for artists that have been nominated by some of the biggest names in the industry, such as OurStage, MySpace, Facebook, ReverbNation and Tommy Boy Records. "Artist on the Verge" is designed to expose the aspiring artists to top media, tech and music industry executives.

Three lucky Rock, Pop, Urban, Singer/Songwriter or Specialty artists will be selected from the "Artist on the Verge" Competition entries to showcase at the New Music Seminar on July 20, 2010 in NYC. These artists will benefit from mentoring sessions, publicity opportunities and press kit critiques given by industry experts attending NMS. The showcase performances will determine one grand-prize winner, who will walk away with over $40,000 in consultations, promotion and marketing services, and gear.
