  • I’ve been pleasantly surprised and very impressed by the wealth of information and viable career opportunities that MusicGorilla makes accessible to new artists. It was a lot of fun to participate in the Austin showcase this past March. Showcasing various bands in such a short period of time is quite a feat, but the MG team were efficient, calm, and helpful…and there was a great crowd in attendance! I’m really looking forward to performing for an A&R rep from A&M/Octone at The Bitter End in NYC tomorrow night and I’m grateful to MusicGorilla for the chance to do so!”

  • “We were happy to play the show at Burnside’s during SXSW. We did a non-stop set which finished with an audience requested encore! We were literally done and the sound guy left the table to unplug us from the stage but the crowd raised their voice asking for one more song! Sound guy went back to the table for us to play one more. It was awesome!
    It was a lot of fun for us and we appreciate the opportunity to play for you guys.

We gained a ton fans from our showcase as well as constructive, thoughtful, written feedback from the industry representative. Because MusicGorilla has a solid reputation for carefully selecting artists, the people on the other side of the business value and respect them.

  • “Unlike many independent music sites that “claim” to put you in touch with industry reps, MusicGorilla, they’re legit! They really looked out for us when NBC needed a hip-hop video to play in an episode of “Friday Night Lights”. Music Gorilla suggested we submit our video and VERY QUICKLY it was approved by NBC. That opportunity came out of nowhere and we thank MusicGorilla for puttin’ that together. Good job!”

Just a few weeks ago, I receive an inquiry, sent off my CD and received a contract in only a few days for my music to appear on up to 5 new kids Christian DVDs.

Two of my songs were also selected for placement on their current compilation CD, which will soon begin receiving air-play at those same stations.

While popular press coverage spreads the sad news that SXSW is not really an indie focused event anymore, Music Gorilla is truly keeping the indie spirit alive and healthy. We are so glad they are and we are deeply thankful and honored to have been included this year.”

I am a new songwriter and it is difficult to know how to get my work out there and heard.  I found Music Gorilla and immediately signed up for pro membership. I was excited (and somewhat skeptical) but happy I was actually able to submit my songs to producers. I submitted and a few weeks later actually got a request to send The Band Perry’s producer the MP3 for one of my songs! This is the best venue I have found to help me move forward with my goals.“

I feel it is designed for the serious Artist, Band, or Songwriter who is looking to reach the A&R Reps in the Music Industry who are looking for great songs and talented Artists.

  • “Music Gorilla totally rocks… they hooked up one of my artists with a major coffee company a few years ago and it opened a lot of doors for us. Placement opportunities, charts, showcases, they do it all. I recommend Music Gorilla to all bands looking for exposure and a break!”

  • “…My band has been heard by A&R approximately a dozen times in 3 months. I have yet to find any other website who can provide the opportunity for you to showcase your music live to the industry. As an artist you get personal attention from Music Gorilla personnel. The service is unbeatable and in my opinion there is no better method out there to promote your band.”

  • “Music Gorilla has been absolutely wonderful for our band. By having us play their New York City showcase at Piano’s, we were able to generate interest from some labels and A&R that are currently waiting on our new recordings. We were also able to get some much needed feedback from Epic Records. Music Gorilla truly helps you figure out where you stand with information you need to get to the next level. Thanks for everything Music Gorilla!!”

  • “We had a great show. Music Gorilla ran an excellent event. Our backline was solid and so was the front of house sound. That is something you don’t always get at a festival showcase.”

  • “We’ve had an awesome time getting to know the team at MusicGorilla.  Over the past few years, MusicGorilla has given us a number of great opportunities that have put us in front of music lovers and industry folk alike.  We look forward to seeing what other avenues will open in the future with MusicGorilla’s help.

  • MusicGorilla Showcase was the highlight of our experience during Austin in March.  The venue was PACKED, the staff was top notch, and Alexia and Lawrence were the most professional and friendly people we met all week. Most well put together unofficial showcase happening, hands down!”

  • “MG.com gave us the opportunity to actually play in front of a real living, breathing A&R rep which is MG living up to its promise of being able to “play it for the labels”. The fact that the CEO’s of the site are always nice, personable and always reachable by phone is a plus, the fact that they will take the time to talk to you for as long as you need them is going above and beyond the call of duty, which most other websites promise, but never deliver. 3 Cheers for MusicGorilla.com!”
