What is The NMO for? Our websites are a gateway for new music, artists, events and businesses to reach decision-making professionals across borders and boundaries, with a view of establishing interesting new contacts with like-minded individuals, and creating genuine business opportunities with open-minded companies around the world.
Our network events are designed to give our members the chance to meet face to face in a friendly, business-oriented atmosphere. A place where everyone’s presence is of equal importance.
Who is The NMO for? The NMO is not a fan-site. It is aimed directly at those who work inside our industry with the view that it will make communication, co-operation and opportunity-making more effective for all, and especially help new artists and their representatives to reach as many potential partners as possible.
The NMO Featured Artist. There is a frequent, if irregular, email mail-out to a database of hundreds of industry professionals that will include The NMO Featured Artist. These professionals include people associated with labels, publishers, concert promoters, booking agencies, PR & advertising agencies, and media - TV, radio, online and print -, as well as sponsors, brand managers, consulates and music export offices.
Our Word-of-Mouth Philosophy. We aim to make sure that no email, no contact, no opportunity is wasted for anyone by making sure that our members are only people that we personally know or are recommended personally by those we know. We do not advertise ourselves or sell ourselves. We exist because of favourable word-of-mouth and that is just how we like it. We feel that this is a way to protect our members and ourselves from wasting resources. As a valued member of our community, we ask you to feel free to recommend The NMO to anyone you think is interested and interesting.
Taste-making. The NMO features various genres of popular music and is building a reputation of recommending high quality music and artists that have gone on to establish strong profiles within the music industry. For this reason, The NMO is fast becoming a leading taste-maker, and an essential place for all those needing to be at the cutting edge of new music.
