MPress Records is a nationally distributed record label based in New York City. Production is starting on the fourth volume in a series of rising artist charity compilation CDs called "New Arrivals". Volume 3 was released this past October to retailers nationwide and raised funds for National Eating Disorders Association. 100% of the proceeds from Vol. 4 will benefit National Network for Youth, whose mission is to connect and champion the needs of runaway, homeless, and other disconnected youth.

New Arrivals is a compilation project aimed at increasing exposure for exceptional self-released material. As such, artists will receive free marketing to MPress contacts i.e. radio, press and internet, as well as cross-promotion at live events presented by MPress Records, including 6,000+ pieces distributed at various label-attended industry conferences throughout 2010. Wider plans include servicing the disc to press and radio (college/AAA formats).

At least 4 of the slots on the CD are reserved for Sonicbids artists. AAA, singer-songwriter, Americana, rock and pop submissions highly encouraged, but all styles of music are welcome and will be considered. 10 copies will be provided to each selected artist.

MPress Records, which has released eight albums of Rachael Sage's keyboard-driven art/pop, has also produced numerous showcases and festivals highlighting DIY musicians (i.e. "MPressFests") throughout the country. Artists accepted for this project may be invited to perform at local "CD release" events throughout the year, which are aimed at promoting the compilation and gaining greater exposure for said artists. Vol. 4 will also include one bonus track by a more established artist; previous bonus tracks were donated by artists such as Jill Sobule, Melissa Ferrick, and Glen Phillips.

Additional music-related prizes and product discount offers will be available from the compilations' sponsors, including:

  • A Taste of Triple A
  • A to Z Media
  • Musicians Atlas
  • OnlineGigs
  • Planetary Group
  • ...and more!
