On Wednesday November 28th the final battle of Band Fight II will reveal which local indie band shall be crowned winner. Every Wednesday since November 7th four local indie bands have rocked it out to compete for a spot in the finals. The finalists for the Band Fight II Finals are:
These four bands will be battling it out on November 28th for a grand prize of one professionally recorded song and full radio promotion campaign courtesy of AMP Records and radio play on 99.3 The Fox. You can vote for your favorite band here http://www.amprecordsco.com/bandfight/
I had the pleasure of meeting the four judges. There was Scott Alan from 99.3 The Fox, Vivien Pence from The Georgia Straight, and the founders of Amp Records, Phil Lehmann and Tara Lett.
AMP Records is a company that specializes in providing the necessary resources for independent artists. They are unique from other major record labels in that they provide a joint venture agreement between AMP Records and the bands. This places more power in the hands of the artists. AMP Records have led the way in leveling out the power imbalance in the old record label model, which used to tilt heavily on the record labels side.
The clients of AMP Records are introduced to teams that provide studio engineering, mixing and mastering, radio promotion, tour booking, press coverage, securing film and television placements, creating media kits, managing an online presence, image consultation (through professional photo shoots, music video production and album artwork design), and branding.
