Local Montreal artist Jon Richman, a Landmark Events showcase participant and finalist at our 2013 events has recently been signed to Milagro records!

image

Jon Richman is a singer and songwriter, backed by his rock-folk band from Montreal. 

After great performances at the 2013 Landmark Showcase events at Le National and Club Soda; Owner of Milagro Records (http://www.milagrorecords.com/), Pierre Soupras had the chance to discover Jon and his energetic trio:

image

Jon Richman (Voix,guitar,harmonica)

Mark Grand’Maison (Basse)

Guillaume Tessier (Banjo, Guitar, Ukulele)

Pierre has recently become one of Landmark’s industry partners and is often invited out to their Showcase events as a judge and industry representative in Quebec, and Ontario.

Pierre immediately took to Jon’s sound and performance ability. After sending some of Jon’s music out to his radio programming and publicity contacts abroad, the feedback was incredible. He quickly decided to offer the band a record deal and the rest was history.

image

Jon Richman will soon be releasing material with Milagro Records: a soulful, yet energetic sound. With unique, powerful and vocally dynamic delivery and instrumentation. Jon’s song-writing is captivating and has sincere lyrical depth. Keep an eye out for this fantastic music artist from Montreal!

Everyone knows it is not exactly easy to break through in the music industry. Some people think it’s just about “who you know”, or it is just about “luck”, but what people tend to forget is that making it in the music industry takes HARD WORK - just like anything else in life, if you want to succeed. 

The music industry is very saturated - these days artists really need to find their niche market. Artists need to think about looking at themselves as an entity. Just like in today’s business world, one of the most important things about doing business, is NETWORKING.

Landmark Events is company who’s goal is to support local artists and bands in cities such as Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa and Kingston, by giving artists the opportunity to showcase their talents in front of music industry representatives

image

Who are we?

We are NOT “Battle of the Bands”. We are event promoters who hold showcase competitions for local bands to strut their stuff!

What do we do?

We SHOWCASE local talent, and the local talent COMPETE for amazing prizes, which are determined by the music industry representatives’ judging panel at the show. It is NOT determined by audience votes. 

We give local bands the opportunity to meet and greet with the music industry representatives, and network with other bands. By doing so, bands can create and build relationships within the local music community as well as with music industry representatives. 

image

How do we keep supporting the local music scene?

We like to keep in contact with the artists who have performed at our events, and we help them out in any way that is possible for us to do so.

Feel free to contact us whenever!

Why do we support the local music scene?

BECAUSE WE WANT TO! :) Local support is one of the most important things for artists! It also a great way for us to listen to some fresh new tunes that we can bump in our cars, on our iPods and in our office!

Landmark Events – Encouragez  la communautée musical local!!

Ce n’est pas facile de percer dans l’industrie musicale… ce n’est pas nouveaux. La plupart d’entre des gens sont persuadés  que c’est basé sur les ‘pistons’ ou sur la ‘chance’, mais ce n’est pas tout. Afin de percer dans l’industrie musicale il est important d’y mettre BEAUCOUP de travail, un peu comme tout dans la vie.

L’industrie musicale est saturée en ce moment, les artistes ont besoin de trouver leur niche. Il faut que les musiciens travaillent ensemble et comme dans le monde du business en ce moment, la chose la plus importante sont les CONTACTS.

Le but de la compagnie Landmark Events est d’aider les groupes de musiques locaux à Kingston, Montréal, Toronto et Ottawa en leur donnant l’opportunité de jouer devant des représentants de l’industrie musicale.

Qui sommes-nous?

Nous ne sommes PAS une ‘Battle of the Bands’ nous sommes des promoteurs qui organisent des événements afin que les groupes musicaux montrent de quoi ils sont capables.

Que faisons-nous?

Nous offrons une vitrine pour les talents locaux, vient alors le moment ou ils doivent se faire concurrence afin de gagner des supers prix qui sont déterminés par les juges de l’industrie musicale. Le gagnant n’est pas déterminé par les votes de la foule.

Les groupes aurons la chance de rencontrer les représentants musicaux de l’industrie ainsi que les autres bands. C’est une bonne opportunité pour les bands de contruire leur cercle de contacts dans l’indutrie musical.

Comment continuons-nous à aider la scène musicale local?

Nous aimons garder contact et aider nos groupes de musique qui ont déjà participé à nos show. N’hésitez JAMAIS à nous contacter.

Pourquoi encourageons-nous la scène musicale locale?

PARCE QUE NOUS EN AVONS ENVI! J Le support local est la chose la plus importante pour les artistes. C’est également une façon de pouvoir remplir notre Itunes de nouveaux bijoux musicaux afin de les écouter dans notre voiture ainsi qu’au bureau.
