Emerging online music site helps aspiring artists get noticed, leading to television and radio exposure.
Online PR News – 06-August-2012 – Atlanta/GA – TalentWatch.net is beginning to be recognized by both radio and television as the conduit for finding new and emerging music talent. TalentWatch artists garner major media opportunities, helping them to stand out and get noticed. "I've never seen the competition so fierce," says TalentWatch Industry Liaison Hugh Hession. "There is so much music out there and it's extremely difficult for any music artist, regardless of their talent, to get on the radar." Hession, an artist manager, owner of the popular music blog makingitinmusic.net, and TalentWatch Music Industry Liason is excited about how artists benefit by appearing on TalentWatch. "Every day I see the highs and lows music artists go through. When I hear the stories of how TalentWatch has helped artists get the recognition they deserve, it reinforces the belief in what we’re doing."
The hip hop group Aquablakk concurs. With the current #1 rated video on TalentWatch, Aquablakk has recently landed a spot on the playlist of Cape Town, South Africa's Good Hope FM, with their song "Can You Feel It." Good Hope FM is one of the leading radio stations in South Africa and broadcasts to eight surrounding cities with a 19-29 year old demographic. "Our add to Good Hope FM's playlist was directly related to our success on TalentWatch," mentions manager Cliff Richard. "That is what sparked their interest and TalentWatch was the catalyst in making this happen!"
Aaron English, another popular TalentWatch artist, has also gained momentum with major radio airplay in Italy with his popular Beatles/Zeppelin combo "Norwegian Wood/Kashmir." The medley hit the #4 position in June on the Italian Virgin Radio rock charts and has helped push English's career forward.
TalentWatch artists have also been on the radar of major reality competition shows. Earlier this year, after discovering Jenna Lynne on TalentWatch, NBC's America's Got Talent asked her to audition for the 2012 season.
