Disc Makers, the nation's leading independent CD manufacturer, is kicking off the latest installment of the Independent Music World Series (IMWS), the premier music showcase series for independent musicians. The Southeast showcase finals will take place at 3rd & Lindsley on July 22, 2004 and will feature the top six acts as selected by Billboard Magazine performing for $35,000 in music gear and prizes.

Bands and artists can log onto www.discmakers.com/imws to register for the Southeast showcase and find out more information about the IMWS. The competition is open to all musicians not currently signed to a major record label and to all styles and genres of music. To be eligible for the Southeast showcase at least one band member must reside in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, or Tennessee. Submissions must be postmarked by May 20th, 2004. Each artist that submits an entry will receive a FREE copy of Billboard's Musician's Guide to Touring and Promotion and Electronic Musician magazine.

TAXI, the industry's leading A&R company will select 100 semi-finalists, and the six performing finalists will be hand-picked by Billboard Magazine to perform at the showcase finals at 3rd & Lindsley.

The $35,000 prize package features everything independent musicians need for a career boost including a complete CD manufacturing package, post-production sweetening, and promotional posters from Disc Makers, a full array of recording gear and the QS 8.2 Digital Keyboard from Alesis, a complete set of DJ gear from Numark, professional Shure microphones, Fender guitars and amplifiers, a 5-piece drum kit from DW Drums, EXL110 Electric Guitar Strings and EXL170 Electric Bass Strings from D'Addario, a free copy of METAJAM from Broadjam, Remo drumheads, a Sabian cymbal package, a one year membership to TAXI, and one year of web hosting from CD Baby. Additional event partners include Music 123, XM Satellite Radio, and Nashville Scene.

"We are delighted to again join forces with our sponsors to help promote indie artists in the Southeast," says Tony van Veen, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Disc Makers. "These artists keep the music industry energized and thriving. The IMWS is one of the ways we at Disc Makers recognize their talent and effort, and reward the artists for their hard work."

The IMWS helps independent musicians make an impact in their local music communities and make connections that can help advance their careers. Recent winners include Dallas' Deadman (West 2004), Richmond's Bio Ritmo (Northeast 2003), Memphis' Gamble Brothers Band (Southeast 2003), and Chicago's Orbert Davis (Midwest 2003).
