We were contacted by NuevoStage, a very exciting new website for musicians, with a way to possibly get to play in one of their concerts! Here's what they had to say:
nuevoStage + Berklee = Stage Space for you!
We'd like to extend our first official outreach email to you! Hello, we're nuevoStage, and with a bit of help from you, we believe this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship.
If you haven't heard, we're the winners of the rethink music competition. We're a bit like Kickstarter for concerts. We log empty stage space, let you list potential shows, and then let fans pledge to buy tickets. Once enough of your fans pledge, you get a guaranteed contract. Basically, if you have the fans, you have the stage. We think, and hope you agree, that this will help young talent like yourself develop a track record of success faster than ever.
In the coming months, we're hoping to launch a concert series to promote the idea and prove it has value. We're currently running a Kickstarter campaign to raise funding for this idea (see here http://kck.st/qkxdVH). If you think we're on the right track, we'd appreciate your tweeting, blogging, or emailing your fans about the campaign. Any help makes a huge difference - even a $1 contribution bumps up our ranking on Kickstarter. Also, we'll need artists to take that stage space. So if you're interested in playing, please also sign up for our mailing list at www.nuevostage.com.
If nothing else, it would be wildly helpful if you could simply go to the Kickstarter page and "Like" us. Apparently Facebook likes drive placement throughout the site!
Hope you're enjoying your summers,
Max & Chris
