Offers Free Demo Uploads for Record Company Review
LOS ANGELES, July 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The sensational R&B boy band Mindless Behavior is helping give new artists a chance to make it big in the music industry. The group is teaming up with their friends at Upload Demo, a new technology platform.
Upload Demo allows artists to submit their music from anywhere in the world via the Internet and guarantees their song will be heard by industry artists and/or hit-making producers. Visit www.uploaddemo.com. The service, which has its official debut later this month, will be offered for a fee of $100.
However, as a part of their effort to give back to the community, especially to those seeking entry into the music industry, the Mindless Behavior foursome – Prodigy, Roc Royal, Ray Ray and Princeton – has arranged for aspiring artists to use the service totally free of charge today, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
"I am so proud of Mindless Behavior. They're young, they're talented, and they're the hottest thing in music today. They are in the middle of their world tour, yet, they know the importance of reaching back to help pull someone else up," said Upload Demo co-founder and CEO Dino Awadisian.
"By offering free uploads through our new service Upload Demo, they can help make it happen for someone else," he said.
"We just want to help give someone else a chance. Someone gave us a chance. It's our way of giving back," said Princeton of Mindless Behavior.
According to Awadisian, Upload Demo takes the record company A&R (artist and repertoire) process of finding new talent, and puts it online making it more transparent. Those who submit demos can track their progress throughout the entire process.
Artists who move through the system to the point of a record contract will be signed to a record single deal by a new label being developed by R&B artist and producer Akon and Awadisian.
"It's an aspiring artist's dream and at Upload Demo we will make it happen," Awadisian said.
