Breakout Artist is a live music competition for aspiring bands and artists who are searching for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to receive a major management contract and over $15,000 in prizes. The tour will be headlined by last year's competition winner, All About A Bubble. Breakout Artist will be offering one-on-one consultation, development (and in some cases management) to all performing groups. All individual consultations will take place from January through March 2015 after the winner is announced. Each event will feature a short industry workshop prior to doors opening for any bands interested in learning more about artist development, staying current, networking, and learning how to stand out in a crowded industry. Five (5) acts will be selected in each city. One (1) will be chosen by the headliner and winner of last year's competition, All About a Bubble. One (1) will be chosen by the Breakout Artist crew, and three (3) will be chosen by a ballot vote from the audience at each show. In January 2015, after all the shows are completed, an industry panel will decide who the Breakout Artist of the Year is, and that act will receive the Grand Prize: Management contract with Breakout Artist Management Music video shoot New demo produced with reputable producer Professional photo shoot Artist development Label shopping Consultation Representation Digital distribution Branding includes logo/merch design Headlining national tour dates for 2015 Breakout Tour Consultation with reputable record label A&R Title of Breakout Artist of the Year Previous judges have included Rob Thomas (Matchbox Twenty), Randy Blythe (Lamb of God), Halestorm, Maria Brink (In this Moment), Paul Allen (touring and recording guitarist credits include Big and Rich, Tim McGraw, Adele, Trace Adkins and more), Kim Stephens (president of Forward Entertainment) and more.
