HeadBoXX Ft. Niamh Collins, TuneBreaker Inaugural Winners Top The Hit Sheet
HeadboXX blew the audience away with their high energy set, they were joined on stage by Bell X 1 Drummer Rory Doyle, Declan Quinn and Joe Donegan who frequently work with Zamo and Niamh. Singer/songwriters John Smith and Ed Darragh were also invited to play on the night. Nevertheless, the road to picking up that Award was not all smooth, midway through the sales led voting system a four piece industry panel were brought into select the top 50 they thought had the most chance of picking up the award and succeeding. Only one panellist (a certain Mr Kramer) could see what HeadboXX were truly made of as the other three panned the band. As serendipity would have it, two acts were forced to pull out of the panel selection and HeadboXx who had been No 1 for some 6 consecutive weeks were rightfully reinstated and went on to prove their worth. The results of their Award have been invested into their Debut Single “Joy”.

A revolutionary new Music Industry concept with the global appeal of iTunes, MySpace, MTV & the Grammies, is set to consign the traditional record company model to history. UK & Irish centered TuneBreaker (www.tunebreaker.com) is an organic youth driven music platform, founded by industry vet John Toone, which allows unsigned acts from anywhere in the world to upload their music and video (via its Facebook & You Tube pages), to its global platform, and artists get 50% of the net revenue for every download & a chosen charity also gets a slice (retail price £0.60p approx. $0.95/E0.70). Crucially, it is free to upload and artists retain all rights.
TuneBreaker is open to any unsigned or independent artist irrespective of their talents abilities or stage of development. By signing up they commercially release their music, promote themselves, have the ability to reach a global fan base & be seen by the world’s music and media companies. “In our Inaugural Award we sold many thousands of downloads (zero illegal downloads!), heard stories of artists getting record deals, others getting paid or promotional opportunities which is both what we wanted to happen at the outset & fantastic news, but don’t take my word for it, check out what artists say about TuneBreaker in our EPK!,” says Toone, also citing Inaugural winners HeadboXX (winners of the £10,000 prize), who leave for a promo tour of the States for “JoyBringer” their first single, which is also being widely tipped by major industry players to be a summer sensation (pre-release sales only at TuneBreaker from 18.4.11).
In four short months, hundreds of bands have already signed up to TuneBreaker (with more adding themselves daily), proving it is already a trusted place by artists to sell be paid well & get great exposure, with the amazing added incentive to budding artists that all sales are converted into votes in the TuneBreaker Live Chart™, with a monthly four figure cash prize being handed out to the act that sell the most each month.
“After an incredibly successful Inaugural Uk & Irish Award, we are now proud to open up the Tunebreaker Awards to the world’s unsigned artists; TuneBreaker is free to join at any time – it is simple and quick to get started – each artist uploads between 2-5 tracks, a photo, biog & links to their social network places and then they are set to launch themselves on the world!”, says Toone.
