Breakout Artist is a live music competition and talent search looking for aspiring bands and artists who are searching for a once in lifetime chance to receive a major management contract and over $15,000 in prizes. Including one earns the title of 2014's Breakout Artist of the Year! We will choose the winner based on the potential we see in the artist, their live show and their music. Make sure you bring your A game for the live show and submit the demo or press kit that best represent you at the event you are performing at!
Although there will only be one grand prize winner, Breakout Artists will be offering one on one consultation, development and in some cases even management to ALL groups who perform. We want EVERYONE to have an opportunity to take away something positive from this experience. All individual consultations will take place from January thru March of 2015 after the winner is announced.
Each event will feature a short industry workshop prior to doors opening for any bands interested in learning more about artist development, staying current, networking, and learning how to stand out in such an over crowded industry.
There will be 5 finalists picked in each city. One will be picked by our headliner and winner of last years competition All About a Bubble, One will be picked by our crew, and 3 will be chosen by a ballet vote from the Audience at each show.
Our industry panel will be picking a winner out of all our finalists in January 2015 to be named the Breakout Artist of the Year!
Breakout Artist Music Competition started in 2013 as an online talent search. Previous judges have included Rob Thomas (Matchbox Twenty), Randy Blythe (Lamb of God), Halestorm, Maria Brink (In this Moment), Paul Allen (touring and recording guitarist credits include Big and Rich, Tim McGraw, Adele, Trace Adkins and more), Kim Stephens (president of forward entertainment) and more! All About the Bubble was named 2013's Breakout Artist of the Year out of over 11,000 submissions worldwide and has inked a management deal with A&R veteran Kim Stephens and Breakout Artist Management.
For 2014, we have decided to take this on the road and see the groups perform live to allow audience interaction and voting along with industry professionals. Breakout Artist Is open to all styles or Rock, Alternative, Indie, Punk, Metal, Country and singer/songwriters.
