Online Ticketing Service Partners with A&R Worldwide’s MUSEXPO
to Discover & Promote Top Music Talent
Contestants in the “Rock with the Fox Award” competition were judged by a panel comprised of top music industry executives April 30 – May 2, 2017 at S.I.R. Studios in Hollywood, CA. The winning musical act, Andreas Moss, was announced at the luncheon celebrating lifetime achievements of Monte and Avery Lipman, co-founders of legendary Republic Records in Hollywood on May 3, 2017.
“I am so honored to have received the Rock with the Fox award!”, exclaims Andreas Moss. “As a writer and performer all I could ever ask for is that people listen and relate to what I’m singing about. This is such an amazing validation that people are listening and feeling something from my music. I am over the moon! Thank you, CellarPass, for this great honor.”
Judges evaluated contestants based on their demonstrated skills in each of the following categories: performance; songwriting; social media marketing; overall stage nuances (stage presence, energy, vibe, band dynamics, audience interaction); and audience reaction from the industry executives in attendance.
“On behalf of A&R Worldwide, we’d like to thank CellarPass for their support of emerging global talent,” said Sat Bisla, president and founder, A&R Worldwide / MUSEXPO. “It’s an honor to have MUSEXPO selected as a platform to showcase and unearth some of the world’s best emerging artists, and we’d like to congratulate Andreas Moss on being selected by our esteemed A&R, publisher and agent panel of experts as this year’s winner of the inaugural ‘Rock with the Fox’ Award.”
“CellarPass is once again delighted to have partnered with MUSEXPO to identify and nurture aspiring music talent from around the globe with an opportunity to reach two highly influential audiences, music industry talent professionals and the celebrities,” said Sarah Elliman, co-founder and CEO of CellarPass. “With so much great talent, deciding on the winner of the award wasn’t easy. In fact, the panel selected the winner just hours before the official announcement,” continues Elliman. “Andreas Moss not only delivered an amazing performance for his own showcase, the duet he performed with Melanie Pfirrman definitely scored him major points with the panel,” says Elliman. “The fact that he’s a stellar songwriter and nailed his showcase performance, we will enjoy watching his career catapult onto the airwaves much like many other talents such as Katie Perry, LMFAO, Gavin James and others who have all performed at MUSEXPO’s past showcases.”
In addition to select members of the CellarPass executive team, the panel of judges include: Aton Ben-Horin, global vice president A&R, Warner Music Group Worldwide; Marian Wolf, director, Int’l Writer Services, BMG; Maureen Kenny, senior VP A&R, Atlantic Records; Jon Pleeter, VP of Concerts, ICM Partners; and Sat Bisla, founder and president, A&R Worldwide and influential tastemaker globally syndicated radio show host.
