HOLLYWOOD, Calif. /California Newswire/ — The Los Angeles Music Network (LAMN) is delighted to announce a returning sponsor of its upcoming 2014 ROCK and URBAN LAMN Jam Music Contests ("LAMN Jams") happening this spring in Los Angeles. Send2Press(R) Newswire, a unit of Neotrope(R), will again be the official press release service, helping to take LAMN Jams to a new level.
The Los Angeles Music Network's "LAMN Jams" are back. Launched in 2005, LAMN Jams go beyond traditional showcases by featuring artists performing original songs, followed by instant critiques from a panel of industry experts. LAMN Jams emphasize creativity and originality, featuring music written by artists themselves (no covers). Past winners include Aloe Blacc, The Mowglis and Grammy(R) award-winning songwriter Tim Fagan.
"We're always excited to be a part of the LAMN Jams," says Christopher Simmons, CEO of Neotrope(R), and a member of ASCAP and PRSA. "These are exceptional opportunities for rising stars to gain exposure and get usable feedback on their talent from respected industry pros."
"Of all the press release services we have tried over the years, Send2Press has proven to be the most effective," says LAMN President Tess Taylor, "and we are thrilled to have them on board again for 2014 to help market our event and, more importantly, to help the winning artists of our contest raise visibility to both traditional and social media."
