When it comes to the indie and unsigned scenes, there can never be too many platforms to give those artists the tools they need when it comes to promotion and distribution. We do it with Jammer Direct, there’s also ReverbNation, Facebook, Triple J, and (gasp!) even myspace!

Now check out the newest member of the family, Perform-ers! They take it in a new direction by adding prizes and charities! Today I talk to the creator of Perform-ers, Erich Krammer, as we discuss his vision as well as the state of the indie scene. This is a must listen.

About Perform-ers
Ever wondered how to create a global community of artists that help those in need while fostering their individual careers? It’s really quite easy and Perform-ers shows you how to do it.

Perform-ers is a new platform for creative people who can set up an online profile to promote their music and art and enter global competitions. These competitions will not only enable artists to gain amazing prizes but they will also use part of their revenues to give to charities!

In a world where the DIY approach to promoting one’s artistic careers is more common than ever before, Perform-ers offers a platform for global talent to unite and get heard and seen. In the 21st century, promotion through digital spaces is the number one component of a successful campaign. This kind of approach has made the rise of contemporary superstars such as Justin Bieber or Ed Sheeran possible.

Instead of having to use multiple websites to upload profiles, videos and audio files Perform-ers offers a centralised version of all those platforms combined in one. On the website, the audience will not only be able to engage with the artist but can support them by purchasing their music or voting for them in various competitions.

Apart from those weekly media contests, talent searches for singers, models, DJs and the like will be held as well.

With Perform-ers, the chance to be tomorrow’s new superstar is imminent!

Unlike the X Factor it gives artists complete control over their creative outcome and instead of relying on just a few different judges, the whole world will have a say and give you a real idea how receptive people actually are to what you offer!

Perform-ers Founder Eric Krammer explains: ‘There are so many talented young people out there, they deserve to become a voice and follow their dreams. Performers should be a place where we connect, create and give to others who need help’

Perform-ers is an amalgamation of artists from around the world that allows outstanding talent to be filtered out through competitions and interaction with their audience. In order to reach as many people as possible, the website will be available in English, German, French, Spanish, Russian, Czech and Polish versions.

What makes Perform-ers different from other artist platforms is a worldview that does not only focus on gaining maximum exposure for the musicians and artists but also use the money that is made through competitions to help those in need by supporting charities. For each time you enter a contest, there will be a $1.99 upload fee of which 20c will go directly to sponsored charities while 50c will go into the cash pool from which the cash prizes derive.

If you’re an artist who wants to get out there and be part of a global collective that focuses on more than one good cause then simply follow Perform-ers’ formula:
