  • (1888PressRelease) May 27, 2015 - Los Angeles, CA - Vibrant indie folk-rock duo The Bergamot were selected as the winners of Music Marketing Company Web 'n Retail's giveaway of a 2 month Viral Blogging campaign -having competed with over 3,500 talented artists - across all genres - on Reverbnation.

    The selection process was arduous. The Web 'n Retail selection committee listened to, and scored, every single track of the 3,555 tracks submitted, and narrowed the entries down to the top 200 via a point system. From there, the top 200 entries were listened to and scored by Web 'n Retail's committee of 4, then averaged, so that final selection was not simply the result of any one staffer's personal taste. Web 'n Retail has had tremendous success with the viral blogging campaign that they will be supplying, at no cost, for The Bergamot. "Our viral blogging campaigns build valuable press and online content stemming from authoritative resources. Not only does this help the bands' reach and influence, but it also helps to raise their page position (aka "SEO") on Google for search terms people use to find music such as theirs", says the Firm's President, Gale Rosenberg.

    Unbeknownst to Web 'n Retail during the selection process for the ReverbNation "Opportunity" winner, The Bergamot had already amassed an extensive fan base. Their fans funded the upcoming release via a Kickstarter campaign that brought in over $30,000 in 40 days. They put the money to good and thoughtful use, as only the most serious and entrepreneurial musicians would, as they criss-crossed the Country to work with the best engineers at the best studios for each track. All their efforts culminated in their biggest show to date, at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center in Notre Dame, Indiana. "It took us one year to plan, it was essentially like planning a wedding but we were getting married to The Bergamot + music. It was a smash hit, electrifying - there we where on a prestigious stage with 1000 of our closest friends" states Jillian.

    The Bergamot is a Brooklyn-based band consisting of Jillian Speece on vocals and Nathan Hoff on guitar, vocals, and piano. Jillian and Nathaniel met in high school in their hometown of South Bend, Indiana in 2003 and have since become the husband and wife duo that are the architects behind the lively, American Indie, Folk Rock-inspired sound. The Bergamot released their first EP in 2010, and followed it up with 2 other albums. Their fourth album, Tones, is set to release in the US and Worldwide on July 14, 2015. This pop rock duo has played all over the USA, Bahamas, Germany, France, Belgium, and Italy in festivals like SXSW, Taste of Chicago, The Traverse City Film and Bud Light's Port Paradise Music Festival. The Bergamot have also shared the stage with All American Rejects, Young The Giant, Wiz Khalifa and won the Bud Light Battle of the Bands in 2012. Their performances are high energy, infectious, and have turned first-time listeners into instant fans.
