New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ ISL PR)
New York City's famed AVATAR RECORDING STUDIOS has long been the scene of the creation of award winning music by some of the biggest stars: Bruno Mars, Paul McCartney, Tony Bennett, Bruce Springsteen, David
Bowie, John Mayer, Diana Krall, Vampire Weekend, Bryan Adams, My Morning Jacket, Kings of Leon...the list is massive! Many Grammy and TEC award winners emerged from these hallowed halls, and boy, if walls could talk, what tales these could tell.
While being a platinum seller is an amazing achievement, today's music stars all have one thing in common: every one started out as a "newbie" artist. AVATAR is proud to be a major supporter of emerging talent, championing tomorrow's chart toppers - which is one reason why the studio partnered with top online publication The Deli Magazine to offer three new NYC-based bands the chance of a lifetime.
The contest, created by The Deli's Editor-In-Chief Paolo
DeGregorio, chose the "Year End Poll For Emerging Artists" winners from the myriad of entries, to best represent the most promising "Next Big Groups" and give them a leg-up with a cache of prizes. For the "Best of NYC 2012," the top three bands were awarded ten hours of free recording time in one of AVATAR's magnificent studios.
The winning bands are Foxygen, Spirit
Family Reunion, and Ambassadors. Says AVATAR President Kirk Imamura: "The future of music lies with today's talented young musicians and we're looking forward to welcoming these three groups. AVATAR supports the thriving music scene, and we encourage the artists, and provide the highest quality of recording equipment as well as the vast knowledge and experience of our staff of professionals. We have hosted many artists, producers, engineers and musicians who use our facilities to create their recordings. We offer the top level of recording possibilities that simply cannot be duplicated in a 'home studio.' Artists come out of AVATAR with a finished product that is technically on par with the works of the industry's most successful and lauded superstars. We love to see our clients reach the highest rung of the music industry ladder."
