Wondering if you should enter VerbicideMagazine.com’s 2011 Unsigned contest? Maybe a word from Annie Bethancourt, who was the Judges’ Choice winner in last year’s contest, could help you decide:
When you picked me last year as the 2011 Unsigned Artist, I was over the moon. And not because I got all sorts of kick-ass music goodies (though I do love me some goodies), but because I felt like a high school uber-nerd turned Prom Queen, clutching her flowers and crown whilst sobbing “You like me! You REALLY like me!”
Verbicide, you made me validated in making the music I make. You made me feel encouraged and supported and championed, like you’re ON MY SIDE. And I really, really, love that about you, because I know you make other artists feel the same way all the time. And that’s awesome.
So thanks for doing what you do.
Annie recently recorded a brand new song — and she did it on the Baby Taylor guitar that she got at Sam Ash with the gift certificate she won as part of her prize package.
