New Music Seminar (NMS) wants to find the “Top 100” artists about to break through in today’s market, i.e. “Artists on the Verge” (AOV). To qualify, artists must demonstrate positive career momentum and cannot be signed to a major independent or major label. Those chosen will be given the opportunity to perform as a part of NMS New Music Nights Festival, held on June 21 to 23 in New York City. The AOV Project has featured many artists before they broke, such as Macklemore, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, MisterWives, Action Bronson, Schoolboy Q and Joey Bada$$. All AOV performers are invited to showcase their talent during the New Music Nights Festival, and the top three will be chosen to perform at a special event where they will be exposed to leading and influential industry reps. One winner will be announced on Tuesday, June 23, and will walk away with thousands of dollars in studio time, consultations, promotions, marketing, music equipment and more.
