Ondřej: “This is something I do because of my passion for music”

As a musician, record studio owner, promotor of underground bands, and Viberate contributor, Ondřej is the perfect person to tell us how contributors lend a hand to upcoming artists.

#1: Good things attract more good things, kinda like a chain reaction

I play bass in the Rock band Painting Memories, based in Brno. Apart from playing in a band, I have a recording studio with my friend and bandmate, called Altered City, and apart from the studio work, we're trying to help underground musicians as much as we can, to get their music out there more. We promote them on social media, we organize shows etc. This is something I do because of my passion for music (we don't charge anything, of course), because I realized that there are soooo many great unknown musicians that deserve more attention. Needless to say, we don't turn them into big rockstars or anything like that, but I believe that every little bit helps and that good things attract more good things, kinda like a chain reaction.

I've been doing this actively for two years now, and when I discovered Viberate about six months ago, the next step was obvious. I keep on discovering new artists, mostly by going to shows (now impossible because of the lockdown) and by searching for them online. And of course, now I keep creating their profiles on Viberate.

#2: You can find real gems in the process

I don't know if there are any contribution hacks I can give you, maybe just a little piece of advice. There's a tremendous amount of great music that you haven't discovered yet and you can find real treasures if you try. Look for it online, but mainly, and I can’t stress this enough, go to live shows. See the musicians live, enjoy the magic of the moment, and support them as much as you can!

Viberate is the MOAP (Mother Of All Platforms). Really, I see it as the go-to platform for professionals and music enthusiasts alike. I think that Viberate is the future. I wouldn't describe it further, I would say, go check it out.
