MPress Records is a nationally distributed label founded a decade ago by 2005 Independent Music Award Winner Rachael Sage. We are starting production on the second volume in a series of rising artist compilation CDs called "New Arrivals". Volume 1 was released this past February to retailers nationwide and raised funds for Gulf Coast Recovery.

New Arrivals: Volume 2 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 2007. Wider plans to service the disc to press and college/AAA formats are in the works. Says Sage, "Ever since I performed at Lilith Fair, I experienced first hand how powerful it could be... for artists at all different levels in their careers to perform together for an equally diverse group of music-lovers."

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 seelcted artist.

MPress Records, which has released seven albums of Sage's keyboard-driven art/pop, has 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. 2 will also include a Bonus Track by Right On Records recording artist/CEO, Melissa Ferrick.

Additional music-related prizes and product discount offers will be available from our sponsors.
