TalentWatch.net - showcasing not just the music but the artists as well
Gary Alan CEO and Founder of TalentWatch.net maybe onto something big. On TalentWatch, not only can artists showcase their music, but they post a personal Video - a spot where artists can tell their story and a little more about themselves. In return, TalentWatch fans rate artists on their talent, entertainment and likability, giving every music artist an equal chance to rise to the top. TalentWatch is catching the attention of some prominent people in the Music business, including Joey Stuckey, music producer and winner of Atlanta Society of Entertainers, Entertainer of the Year award.
Talent Watch is a site worth checking out for all aspiring artists.
Joey Stuckey has performed and recorded with some of the biggest stars in music, including Smash Mouth, Trisha Yearwood, James Brown, the B52’s, Ike Turner, Randall Brambelt and many more. When recently asked about TalentWatch Stuckey shared his insight. “I’ve always known the internet could be a “game-changer” for music artists. However, up until now, no one has been able to harness the power of the internet to help aspiring music artists get the exposure they deserve. Take a look at Myspace and YouTube. They allow anyone to upload their music. Unfortunately, music fans or industry professionals have no way to navigate the clutter to find artists that deserve to be discovered. As a result, most talented artists barely make a blip on the radar. TalentWatch came up with the perfect solution by combining an innovative rating system with a very engaging platform. I believe TalentWatch is that “game-changer” aspiring music artists have been looking for. It may prove to be the best thing to happen to the music business since iTunes.”
Stuckey has already used the site to find new talent. ”I see TalentWatch as a major resource for industry professionals. For example, I can zero in on serious artists who have jumped through the hoops to get on TalentWatch. Once I’m on their site, I check out the highest rated artists first. This is a major time saver for me. I especially love the personal video, where I can get a sense of who the artist is. Frankly, there are too many hobby enthusiasts out there. Serious artists have been hurt by this. This is why Talentwatch is so important. Like I said, it’s a game-changer.”
Joey Stuckey has over 20 years experience as a music producer, engineer, publisher, record label owner, composer and performer.
