Disc Makers' Southeast Independent Music World Series launches Nashville's Rich Creamy Paint into the big leagues

NEW YORK (Disc Makers PR) - Rich Creamy Paint, a power pop band from Nashville, won the Disc Makers Independent Music World Series (IMWS) Southeast showcase held last Thursday at 3rd & Lindsley. As the grand prize winner, Rich Creamy Paint takes home over $35,000 in prizes, including recording gear, instruments, CD manufacturing services, DJ equipment, and more.
"We can't believe we won the IMWS," said an enthusiastic Rich Painter. "We were thrilled just to be invited to play and wanted to give the fans a taste of our new music. It is such a blessing, and we hope to put it back into making more music and reaching more people. Thank you to our friends who came out to support us and Disc Makers for this special opportunity."

Rich Creamy Paint was one of six finalists competing before a panel of twelve judges that included representatives from Billboard Magazine, Universal, ASCAP, SESAC, TAXI, WRLT Lightning 100, Rocketown Records, Western Beat Records, and the Nashville New Music Seminar. Over 1,000 unsigned bands and independent artists submitted entries for the Southeast region of the IMWS. The other finalists included Gordon Vincent (Nashville, TN), Guta (Elizabeth City, NC), Jason Feller (Old Hickory, TN), Living Better Electrically (Jackson, MS), and Poloneius Pluck (Lethonia, GA).

Produced by Disc Makers, the nation's leading CD manufacturer for independent musicians, the IMWS is the country's most exciting live music showcase series, giving musicians a unique opportunity to showcase their talents, make valuable industry contacts, and compete for over $35,000 in recording gear, instruments, CD manufacturing services, DJ equipment, and more. The showcase is judged by music industry executives, media, and celebrities, and features live performances from the six finalists.
"Disc Makers prides itself on helping indie artists succeed, and the IMWS is just one of the great things we do to help these artists get to the next level," says Tony van Veen, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Disc Makers. "We love coming to Nashville and thank each of our sponsors and 3rd & Lindsley for their continued support."

IMWS showcases are held in each of four regions throughout the country (Southeast, Northeast, Southwest, and Midwest). The regional focus of IMWS helps independent musicians make an impact in their own backyard and make connections that can help advance their careers. The competition is open to musicians of all genres not currently signed to a major record label. Professional music screeners from TAXI selected 100 semi-finalists from the entries and the editors of Billboard Magazine chose the six finalists.
