OPP: Artist Feature - "Listen Up"

Get Your Music Into Over 750 Gyms and Be Heard.

OPPORTUNITY DETAILS:

White Knight Worldwide Media (BMI) and MusicOpps.com are opening the door for indie artists and their music to be featured in "Listen Up," a video segment airing in over 750 high-traffic, big city gyms and fitness locations, across over 6,000 HD screens, throughout North America. These segments feature top artists, new singles, featured music videos, interviews, festivals, pop culture, music, media and news.

Typically reserved only for Billboard Charting artists, their labels, PR and marketing teams; MusicOpps.com has developed a direct relationship to allow up to 2-3 independent artists and acts to be featured each month.

"Listen Up" producers are auditioning artists for 2017 features as a way to showcase up-and-coming, unsigned talent. This music discovery feature will run for 2-3 weeks as a 1 minute segment showcasing band videos (music video/live play), 3 filmed questions (prepared ahead of time by producers), clips of interview audio and filmed interview (sent in by band), plus the artist's album or single artwork. 

The feature will open the door for artists to promote events, releases, shows and their message. Producers will gather all raw material from acts and create a custom 60-second commercial/feature set to air in all locations in US and Canadian outlets, generating 25 million impressions, as monitored by Nielsen.

Acts must be clean, light-hearted, uplifting and mainstream appropriate to support branding messages for sponsors, retailers, gyms and gym music culture. Producers are looking for diversity, fresh faces from all walks of life and unique sounds. "Listen Up" seeks to stand out as a discovery platform for new music and emerging artists, not just mainstream big label acts.
