Have you ever felt like your voice is (literally) unheard? It must be hard trying to stay afloat when you’re constantly drowning amongst singers like Adele and Taylor Swift. Someone out there heard you and now there’s a platform for you to showcase what you’ve got without competing with these big boys (or girls 😛 )!
SKOWT, a platform which focuses on unsigned artist worldwide in giving you an opportunity to showcase your musical talent. It’s a free, fast and an easy way of getting your voice out there and creating your very own fan base. They aim to give unsigned artists an opportunity to be recognised for their talent and also potentially signed by a record label.
What SKOWT does is, they connect unsigned artists with three main audiences – streaming music fans, Artist and Repertoire (A&R)/ Licensing Managers and event organisers. They want music fans to enjoy streaming new music for free and artistes a chance to shine and get discovered by a record label. Just like how the Billboard 100 works, a music chart will show which track is climbing the charts and most listened/liked by fans.
This platform is open to artistes of any background, genre, language and country. All you have to do is upload your very own biography and songs which you wish to showcase to the world. Their only requirement is that you have to be independent of any record label!
SKOWT works closely with Voice International Music Awards (VIMA), the world’s biggest talent recognition platform as they believe this will amplify the pool of artistes in Malaysia and South East Asia region, ensuring they get the recognition they deserve!
Here’s a little bit more about VIMA for those of you who are interested. VIMA is Asia’s 1st independen
VIMA and SKOWT’s partnership came as no surprise as they share the same core value. Past winners include Yuna, Joe Flizzow, Pop Shuvit, An Honest Mistake and K-Town Clan. Since inception 8 years ago, this is a highly anticipated award show in Asia.
In conjunction with their partnership, SKOWT sponsored the award for The Best Rock category for VIMA 2016 which was announced on 9th October 2016!
