American Musical Supply (AMS) and ReverbNation announced today the winner of the “Catch a Break at AMS” Opportunity, a unique comarketing venture between these two progressive companies.
Mojave Nomads, a five-man group based in Ogden, Utah, bested 2,099 other entrants to be selected as the winning artist. As the “Black Sheep” of the Utah Music Scene, Mojave Nomads are shaking things up in a region predominantly dominated by pop music culture. The band made their live debut on Halloween 2014, and recorded their EP “Black Sheep” at Indie/Folk artist Joshua James’ Willamette Mtn Studio a few months later. The success of “Black Sheep” led to spins on national indie radio stations, appearances on local news/radio outlets and a number of high-profile gigs. The band has also opened for national touring acts such as Highly Suspect, Smallpools, Run River North, James Supercave and Algiers. Their “Catch a Break at AMS” win promises to bring the brand additional exposure and national recognition.
As part of their “Catch a Break at AMS” opportunity, the Mojave Nomads will perform before an audience of industry insiders in New York City on Wednesday, September 27, 2017. Organized by AMS and sponsored by QSC, Ampeg, D’Angelico, Orange, On-Stage, Shure, D’Addario,Evans and Pro-Mark, the event will take place at the luxurious D’Angelico Showroom, a midtown Manhattan performance space.
“Catch a Break at AMS is an ongoing initiative, which recognizes up-and-coming artists” said Douglas E. Nestler, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at AMS. “Combining forces with a highly-respected company such as ReverbNation reinforces our position as America’s Advocate for Working Musicians”.
ReverbNation’s Chief Creative Officer + Head of A&R Simon Perry added, “ReverbNation is laser-focused on bringing meaningful opportunities to independent artists. This AMS event is perfectly aligned with this mission, and we’re excited that Mojave Nomads, an act that typifies the indie spirit we love, will be showcasing their talent and passion, at this career-defining event.”
