“It’s a privilege to partner with an innovative company such as Grooveshark to create a cutting edge, multi-media contest where EVERYONE wins. It allows us to connect to new and old fans, and no one goes home empty handed, since everyone can download all 4 songs for free! We thank Dustimmoff/North Coast Music Fest/Grooveshark for their support, and our fans for making this possible! We are lucky to be in an era of the music industry where contests are ruled by the fans, and creative web marketing over rules traditional radio and archaic promo campaigns. Distributing our music in such a progressive platform is seriously exciting!” says Van Ghost’s Michael Harrison Berg.

Alex Hoffman, Director of Artist Services at Grooveshark, adds, “Creating momentum is more important than ever for emerging artists. It not only transforms new listeners into fans, but if executed properly, also provides artists with actionable data that they can use to continue growing. We’re thrilled to help Van Ghost create momentum for their new album, by kicking off our first fan-sourced artist strategy promotion! This is an opportunity to engage and reward our users, guide an incredibly talented artist’s single selection, and further break down the barriers between artists and fans.”

The Domino Effect is produced by 8-time Grammy-Award winning Producer/Engineer/Mixer Justin Niebank. Having worked with such artists including Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, and Daughtry, Van Ghost is in great company heading into the festival circuit. With Justin Niebank at the helm, the band’s sound and network continues to develop and expand. Ian Gelfand recently directed the band’s latest music video for the title-track Domino Effect, now on Grooveshark.
