I’m sharing this news because a) I’m stoked and b) many of you are musicians: In addition to the many fun music things that I do (DJing, booking live shows, talk about Britney Spears on TV, etc.), I've been asked to be a judge for Sir Bob Geldof's newest venture: http://youbloom.com/ !
Who is Sir Bob Geldof?:
Robert Frederick Zenon "Bob" Geldof, KBE (born 5 October 1951) is an Irish singer, songwriter, author, occasional actor and political activist. He rose to prominence as the lead singer of the Irish rock band The Boomtown Rats in the late 1970s and early 1980s alongside the punk rock movement. The band had hits with his compositions "Rat Trap" and "I Don't Like Mondays". He co-wrote "Do They Know It's Christmas?", one of the best-selling singles of all time. He starred as Pink in Pink Floyd's 1982 film Pink Floyd The Wall.
Or… just watch this:
YouBloom is an opportunity for unsigned bands/artists to be heard and judged by the general public and then ultimately (in finals) by a panel of distinguished music professionals including yours truly alongside Sir Bob Geldof, Conor McNicholas, Nigel Grainge, and Rupert Hines (http://youbloom.com/ybsc/judges)
The artists that get chosen by the judges win money and other amazing prizes.
The site is now accepting song entries for Q2 until May 23, so if you (or someone you know) wants to enter, please do so!!!: http://youbloom.com/account/signup/
