OneMusicPH has just announced that submissionsare now being acceptedfor the new incarnation of BE DISCOVERED which will be live later this year.
BE DISCOVERED is an artist discovery and music distribution program intended to assist aspiring artists in their journey to be recognized for their musical merit through OneMusicPH’s website, YouTube account and social networking accounts.
Every week, OneMusicPH will feature selected artists and help give them exposure through the OneMusicPH YouTube channel, Facebook account, and the OneMusicPH website (onemusic.ph).
Unlike the previous version of Be Discovered, the new BE DISCOVERED is now a full distribution service. Unlike other distributors like CD Baby and Distrokid which charge a fee to upload a song online, BE DISCOVERED will upload a song, free from any upfront charges, to various platforms like YouTube, Spotify and Apple. OneMusicPH and the artist will, however, share in any revenues earned under the program.
As with other distributors like CD Baby and Distrokid, Artists will still be expected to manage their own social media accounts, decide on their career direction, and spend for their own production, marketing and boosting.
However, BE DISCOVERED allows the Artist to enjoy the benefits of being part of an established brand like OneMusicPH and the ABS-CBN music ecosystem. This doesn’t only help Artists get their content out to a wider audience, but it also helps them monetize their recordings and compositions sooner than they would with DIY distribution.
Their video will likewise be uploaded to the OneMusicPH channel on YouTube, currently with an audience of more than 400k subscribers, and amplified on One Music’s FB page, which currently has more than 700k followers and 400k likes.
OneMusicPH will be with the Artists as they celebrate each milestone by awarding a virtual badge to commemorate each achievement. Each virtual badge, with cool names like “Astig” and “Alamat,” unlocks perks like media mileage, online gigs, and guestings on various OneMusicPH programs on YouTube, Facebook, and Kumu.
OneMusicPH, in partnership with Star Music, also makes available a vast catalogue of OPM songs that artists can cover, ensuring a life free of copyright claims and strikes. Star Music also has the option to sign up any of the BE DISCOVERED “Alamats” as its own recording artists and definitely take their careers to the next level.
The program is open to all Filipino musical artists of all ages and in all genres. “Artist” means an individual or group.
Artist must not currently be under contract with any recording company, label or other entity for the commercial exploitation of his/her/their musical performances and musical compositions.
Applicant/s may send a maximum of two (2) unique entries per artist per month. However, only one (1) entry per month will be chosen by BE DISCOVERED to highlight per artist.
The song/s to be submitted by applicant may be an original song or an approved cover of a song from the ABS-CBN MUSIC catalogue.
The video/s to be submitted must have a clean audio recording (no barking dogs and crowing roosters) with a clear music or performance video in MP4 format (1920 x 1080).
