Promotion Offers Unsigned Bands Opportunity For Fame
Giving every rocker wannabe a chance force their music on us, Music network fuse, entertainment marketing agency Deep Focus and MySpace, today announced the launch of a promotion to find and launch the next big video star. From now until November 4, young musicians can go on to myspace.com/fuse and upload 1 - 3 minute videos for consideration to a dedicated fuse group page on MySpace. Judges from fuse and Deep Focus will select five finalist videos to be posted on the contest site beginning November 7. Site-goers will have a week to cast a vote for their favorite video. Beginning November 15, the number-one vote getter will receive airplay and promotion on fuse's VOD service, fuse Video On-Demand, and MySpace. Please, William Hung's need not apply.

The minute I saw what Myspace offered musicians I wondered if the record industry would ever be the same again. It is obvious that sites like Myspace are causing it so that music artists no longer have to rely on the big labels to get promotion, build a fan base, or even make money. They now have a way to reach millions with the simple click of a mouse. Of course the band still needs to sound good and have talent and all of that, but the major labels are no longer needed for what major labels do best.
