2014-04-07 06:55:30 - NEW YORK, N.Y.—Michéal CASTALDO, the award winning, independent classical crossover artist won Top Artist for March 2014 on the pop-culture music website, ArtistSignal.com, just after midnight on April 1, 2014. The monthly winner is awarded a prize of $10,000 USD to be used to further their music careers.
After a month of hard work by Michéal Castaldo’s fans, family, and friends, their efforts paid off. The site, ArtistSignal.com, was created by several tech savvy entrepreneurs and launched to allow artists a location to promote their music. Unlike crowd funding, the site allows emerging artists to post their music and create a fan following, based on Facebook contacts, who then vote hourly for the artist of their choice. The fan wins rewards and is constantly engaged in the artist’s progress.
Over the course of three months, indie artist Michéal Castaldo, researched the social media music network, uploaded his music, posted updates, invited fans to sign up, started to use the site to vote, met other wonderful artists, and developed mutually
During Michéal’s three months of interaction with the site, he was able to rally fans to move him to the number 1 position in March. It was not an easy month, wrought with much trial and error, but due to the diligence of his amazing team, fans, careful calculation, and research by previous winners Joe Gande (Oct. 2013) and Rebecca Newman (Feb. 2014), the Castaldo fan base was able to vote Micheal through to a win as TOP ARTIST.
“We accumulated a total of 92,488 votes for the month of March with just over 1338 voters, which is an unbelievable achievement unto itself, and we WON with honesty and integrity.
“This is an ‘all time’ record of votes in 1 month since AS started in 2012 Michéal continues to say... I may be $10,000 richer but the amount of love and friendship that has been gained is immeasurable
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Fans and Supporters of Michéal Castaldo for their valiant efforts over the past 3 months. This win could not have happened without them. Michéal plans to pay it forward and help/mentor other worthy indie artists who want to go for the win on ArtistSignal.
The monetary reward totaling $10,000 USD, will be used for the promotion and marketing of Michéal’s new CD, to be released in the fall of 2014.
