fronted rock band, with ages ranging from 16 to 20 years old, garners over 76,000 votes to win a fully produced $100,000 music video directed by DP/Director Helmut Montoya, sponsored by music talent search website www.BIGandFAMOUS.com. This up and coming young band has been turning heads in the music industry with their solid rock sound and energetic performances.
BIG and FAMOUS launched their website in 2013 with a simple concept: provide musicians and bands an opportunity to showcase their music free, in an easy-to-use platform of music videos sorted by genre, give the music industry and non-industry listeners the ability to find new talent, and jump-start the project with a contest to win a $100,000 music video. The contest began on July 15, 2013, and the Grand Prize for the entrant with the most “likes” on their video was a $100,000 music video, fully produced.
Moxy and The Influence entered the BIG and FAMOUS video contest on November 7, 2013. The two nearest competitors entered their videos on September 20th months after these competitors, at midnight EST on December 31, 2013, Moxy and The Influence topped the list, collecting over 76,000 individual votes and clinching the Grand Prize win.
Moxy and The Influence band members are scheduled to fly to Miami at the end of February to film the video at BIG and FAMOUS studios. Director of Photography/Director Helmut Montoya, known for his cinematography in productions for National Geographic, HBO, Universal Music and other record labels, MTV and many other national media networks, will be directing this masterpiece that will showcase the amazing talent of the band at its best.
