Evanston, IL (PRWEB) August 11, 2008
The Next Big Sound has announced the public launch of its innovative music website (http://www.thenextbigsound.com) along with a contest to give away free Bose headphones for the most successful music mogul. Funded through the iVENTURES10 program run by IllinoisVENTURES, The Next Big Sound is a new site that shifts the current music industry model on its head by allowing anyone the chance to play the role of a record mogul and "sign" whatever artists they think are going to become popular to their own label.
Listeners come to the site and can immediately start streaming great unsigned music from the radio player on the homepage. When they hear something that they like, they can register as a mogul and sign the artist. The Next Big Sound tracks when moguls sign each artist, giving rewards and recognition to moguls who discover great talent early.
To celebrate the launch, The Next Big Sound has announced two competitions which run through August:
August Mogul Competition: Throughout August, The Next Big Sound will be giving away a pair of Silver Bose ® Around- Ear Headphones for the top mogul of each week. Register for free as a mogul, sign artists, watch your score rise, and win some sweet headphones.
"Refer An Artist" Competition: During August, the mogul that refers the artists who collectively get signed the most will win a $500 cash prize. Register for free as a mogul, refer artists, and win money when they top the charts.
Visit the site, register as a mogul, and find the next big sound.
