Totally Rockin Artists in Music Awards
We’ve shared the story and the winners of the event that is The 2012 Artists in Music Awards. Now we want to share the video with you: http://bit.ly/GTNeNk
The Artists in Music Awards isn't a members only club. Artists do not have to subscribe to anything nor does the artist need to be an exclusive member to participate. You do not need a million fans on your Facebook page. More importantly, you do not need to pay thousands of dollars to stand out. They strictly look at your product and that product is your music. The event was created to recognize and honor the best of the best.
Definitely The Artists in Music Awards was one of the most unforgettable events of 2012 for our indie artists and far exceeded everyone's expectations.
Executive Producer Mikey Jayy is currently accepting submissions for The Artists in Music Awards Summer Showcase and for nomination at the The 2013 Artists in Music Awards. Do check these opportunities out and remember you need to be in it to win it!

Back to Back Success Stories Made Possible by Eddie “Sea” Caldwell
Pink Lemonade isn’t just a refreshing, sparkling soft drink usually made from lemons and grapefruit, Pink Lemonade is a way of life which means keeping upbeat. It means dancing your troubles away, smiling on through adversity and maintaining a positive attitude. Pink Lemonade is the duo that is Archer and Alexander. And what a refreshing duo they are as Alexander’s bold production style and bouncy songwriting provides a contrast with Archer’s more intense ideas.
We received an email recently from Angie of Angel Music Management, the people who handle Pink Lemonade, in regards to the positive outcome of their submission to Eddie “Sea” Caldwell.
We wanted to share with you some great news! We submitted our band Pink Lemonade to Eddie of Music of The Sea and what a guy... he is so professional and approachable! Eddie was offering the opportunity to be represented at Midem 2012 which we submitted to and we were delighted when he chose Pink Lemonade. He then went on to secure 2 deals for them. One a publishing deal in Spain and Portugal with New Music Spain and a distribution deal with Black Hole Recordings in The Netherlands. Thanks Eddie and Music Xray!
And that does not stop there as we also received an email from Cory George, another artist who also got the chance to work with Eddie. Here is what he has to say:
Since being selected by Eddie Caldwell, it’s been pretty good. He managed to secure a distribution deal with the major label Black Hole Recordings in the Netherlands. He’s a very hard worker as some of his other previous clients has stated. He’s a busy-bee but still makes time to keep me updated on the current happenings. So I’m blessed to be one of his clients and I’m looking forward to more great things that will be done by him in forwarding my career.
Cory George and is an unsigned rapper, passionate about writing and recording. Music to him is writing his thoughts and expressing his feelings on paper then getting into the studio and letting it all out on the mic. For him, his purpose is to let everyone feel how effective music really is.. especially in our lives.
We couldn’t agree more Cory. Who can live without music? Not anyone we know of. But kidding aside, really happy for Pink Lemonade and Cory. Indeed it’s always a pleasure working with Eddie.

Just Great Management Looking for Emerging Artists for Management
The backbone of the music business still depends on great songs delivered by great artists. The greatest artist in the world still needs a great song to do him/her justice.. and the greatest songs in the world are made to come alive in the hands of a truly great artist.
I have worked under and been mentored by several people whose ears and abilities to work with iconoclastic people, from Ray Charles to Mick Jagger. I myself have worked with artist from Paul Simon to Stevie Nicks, producers from Arif Mardin to Jimmy Iovine, enginners from Tom Dowd to Shelly Yakus, executives from Ahmet Ertegun to Doug Morris. I have worked for two major labels, Atlantic Records & A&M Records, and done records for most of the majors from Columbia to Arista. In addition to records, I have worked on films, TV shows, national commercials, Broadway shows, live performances, music videos and online games.
These days I work exclusively with emerging artists in many different genres, and about 25% of the people I have worked with the the six years I have been in this particular position, have realized significant boosts to their careers. Sometimes I help by directly funneling a song or an act to a specific record label or music supervisor, sometimes I feel the artist needs a little push in the right place to make their work beyond reproach... regardless, I know how to work with and for an artist and I would be happy to do the same for YOU!! A portion of each submission goes toward the Save The Children Fund.
