Livemicsworld offers musicians a chance

Livemicsworld launches today, Friday June 28, at the Stables, Mullingar.

It is a website aimed at promoting the Irish artists in Ireland and abroad, by allowing them to create profiles and upload their work.

All acts will be listened to and those who show potential will be invited to play live on stage.

“Throughout my career I have noticed that many talented bands and artists only reach dead ends in the music business in Ireland,” says Michael Kiernan, the man behind Livemicsworld.

Michael is familiar with the pub scene. Working in bars and venues since he was 15, he served his apprenticeship in Dublin after leaving school and worked in the Yukon Bar in Mullingar when the Stables music venue was built.

“Over these years I have learned that Ireland is bursting with talent but there is very little opportunity for the unknown artist. I have spent the last four years devising a system that will help change that. Giving the artist exposure is key to all this.”

Artists who have the best performance and can bring a good following to the venue will be chosen to go forward to the final stages of an annual competition.

The artist that shows the best potential for national and international success will be chosen as the winner of ‘Livemicsworld international artist’ competition. The winners will receive a recording at Grouse Lodge Recordings plus some promotional tools to jumpstart their careers.

“Things are changing quickly and now the original artist has the opportunity to create a path for themselves,” adds Michael.

“Distribution of music can be achieved worldwide with one click of a button. Today more and more artists are taking control of their own music and careers.
