SHMEKNATION was built for independent musicians and music fans.  “Independent” means that you are not currently signed to a record label contract with a major distribution deal.  SHMEKNATION provides a platform for independent artists to achieve their musical goals, while at the same time giving music fans the chance to determine tomorrow’s break through artists.

SHEMKNATION uses our combined 55+ years of music industry experience and resources to provide musicians with access and exposure they cannot get anywhere.  The same access and exposure that major record labels like SONY, Universal, Warner, Capitol, Mercury, Def Jam, Hollywood, Interscope, and others have been using for over 15 years.  For example, SHMEKNATION will broadcast your music on Shmek-U, our college music network on 185 campuses reaching a monthly student traffic count of over 35 million.  Your music will be featured alongside today’s biggest stars like Eminem, Korn, Taylor Swift, 30 Seconds To Mars, Carrie Underwood, Cage The Elephant, Plain White T’s and many more.  This and other promotional opportunities from SHMEKNATION provide you with incredible exposure for your music and ultimately income from your hard work.  The best part is that you keep 100% of the income generated from the SHMEKNATION opportunities.  SHMEKNATION believes the artist should profit from their work.

SHMEKNATION also believes in the power of the people.  Unlike other websites, contests, television shows, or record labels who have a few “experts” or “judges” decide who has talent we let the fans determine who is making good music.  FAN’S OPINIONS MATTER.  Their vote decides which SHMEKNATION musicians advance up the charts and participate in SHMEKNATION promotional opportunities.  SHMEKNATION will take your music as far as YOU and YOUR FANS want it go.



In today’s world of social networks, SHMEKNATION helps artists be everywhere at once uniting musicians with their fans.  After all, with a rabid and loyal fan base an artist can earn a living through their music.  So whether you want to compete against the major record labels, be signed by a major record label, or just earn a comfortable living through your music SHMEKNATION is for you.
