Video Contest: Win a Live Recording With Native Scene Records
Nashville Offbeat is teaming up with Native Scene Records to give one band or artist a live recording! The winner of this contest will receive the live recording of one song (at a house show) to use as they wish. On April 25th, Native Scene Records and Nashville Offbeat will announce a winner at The 5 Spot!
Why is a live recording valuable as an independent artist?
“One of the benefits of recording live albums is that they cost so much less, and you have the potential to make more of a profit (by charging for the live show) with them. I know that a lot of bands have tight budgets today, and we want to help each band we work with get a great product that did not break the bank to make. It also engages their fans in a unique way, because it brings the fans into the recording experience and allows them to be a part of it.
Live albums have the potential to do so much, especially in a world that is so focused on having a great experience. We want to make albums a whole experience for each fan, which we hope will help make them an even more dedicated fan to the artist.”
