Music City Big Break, Nashville’s premier artist showcase competition, was created to help foster the careers of the most talented up and coming musical acts across the country. Muzooka partnered with Music City Big Break this year and became their official platform for artists submissions.
Hundreds of artists applied, but only twenty four were chosen by the panel of judges, comprised of industry elite and tastemakers, to perform in three elimination showcases. Six finalists were then selected to showcase during the final round on December 11, 2015 at Mercy Lounge.
With their unmistakable brand of gritty pop rock, The Gills delivered an electrifying set and were named the winners based on a combination of 50% fan and 50% judge vote. They took home the grand prize package, valued at $50,000, which included a major festival slot, a recording, mixing and mastering package, website and social media consulting, radio airplay and ad buys, and much more to help further their musical career!
We’re beyond stoked for The Gills and excited to see what the future holds for them. Congrats, guys!
