Well, personally, newgrounds thinks I suck, and I think that I suck, but I sort of meet the requirements. I have a lot of shitty songs, maybe that equals like one win song?

Well, I'm going to nominate myself.

I've been making music for a little while (A few months), but most of my songs get 1-2 stars and no reviews, which makes me sad. If you're interested in listening, I'd suggest you skip over the songs I've made that have no icons. They're kind of the worse ones.

Thanks for considering me.

I'm going to nominate myself as well, because I'm awesome like that.

I've been producing music on Reason 4 for the past 3-4 years now, and I've taken several college classes on music production and MIDI. In terms of instruments I play drums and keyboards. I recently finished the construction of an electronic drum set which I am currently using in my latest productions. I occasionally use vocalists that I recruit from local open mic nights and various levels of my social circle.

I am really looking to get some exposure on this website, and its annoying when I post something that gets less than 20 views and several zero bombs. I feel its very hard to get your foot in the door here.

Thank you all.

Self nominations... very altruist and generous... thank you for sharing your thoughts about yourself and only yourself.

Now, let's get to what is really about in this thread, nominating artists that really worth attention but for some reason, they are unknown and not enough appreciated.
TonalEcstasy
Probably one of the few, if not the only one, a cappella group.
Most of their stuff seems to be recorded live, they have also some vids on YouTube with live concerts.
Best tracks (to my taste):

Hiya guys how are you? Well Im doing good and I would like to try nominating my self. Personally I think im the shit at making music (Doesn't mean im the best though) I have been making music for about 4 years now. It started out as a hobbie some thing to do just for fun, and about a year later I found my self wanting to be a real musician. I make all kinds of music. My favorite though would have to be the electronic sounding stuff like Trance, Techno, DnB ect. But I also try to make music that could fit in games and what not. In a sense I am new to newgrounds but I have been back and forth to this site since hmmm well since the madness videos were first posted WAY back in the day. But Up until recently I hadn't uploaded any music on this site.

Well heres a link to my profile page.

http://e-mahler.newgrounds.com/

Let me know what you guys think ^ ^

PS: I didnt mean to sound conseeded (Cant spell xD) but thats how I feel I have come far enough to know that Im sick when it comes to making music even if others don't think so :P.

I feed off of others opinions. I barely get any reviews and only care a little bit. I try, I post, I have fun with it, and I want to improve. So. I would like to make my plea of underdogship. I delve in multiple genres, and like screwing around with sound conventions I don't even know. I find myself knowing that something is wrong in almost everything I publish here but unable to pick out what. I record everything I post, but hope to at least partially change that. Here to face the firing squad of the Grounds. Mister Bear.

Blackhole12's been nominated loads of times before in this thread, and I even nominated him once before, but I'm nominating him again because no matter how hard he tries, he never got a Top 5 before, and not because he's a bad artist, but because of those greedy assholes we all know as 0-bombers.

Just listen to his latest song...

Seriously, zero bombers don't really bother me anymore. But this blatant abuse of the system where everyone can see really annoys me.

Well, he said he's about to leave NG so he'd really like some Top 5 before he goes, so to be honest I really don't blame him for doing that. 0-bombers abuse the system, so the only way to counter it is abusing it back.

Seriously, zero bombers don't really bother me anymore. But this blatant abuse of the system where everyone can see really annoys me.

Obviously 0-bombers won't annoy you anymore, your songs are amazing and have gotten loads of top 5's before :P.

Im not hijacking this thread over this. It's shady and you know it, whether or not he is leaving Newgrounds or not. Doesn't change the fact. If you (he) are gonna work the system at least do so that isn't so obvious, and then have your friends post your songs in the forum for everyone to see what you are doing. I'd rather him proxy vote than do this. At least it would be so blatantly obvious.

That's all I'll say about it.

I would like to nominate:

Sadlersongs

How this guy is not more popular on this site is beyond me. Possibly the second best composer here after Danman. And since Danman is leaving Newgrounds I'd say this guy is the best now. Everything he has posted is exquisite, and all of your lives would be better for listening to this guy's pieces. No joke, this guy is the best in terms of orchestral/classical composition. Just superb work.

His specialty is without a doubt brass. He's won all kinds of awards with his brass ensemble compositions. I can't think of them off the top of my head, I just remember reading about them on his personal website. Which for the life of me I can't seem to locate at the moment.

Some of my favorite pieces of his:

I nominate myself. http://newgeneral.newgrounds.com/audio/

I'm not that well known, only a few of my tracks have about 7 reviews maximum.

]What software?
Fruity Loops 8 XXL Edition. VSTs: EastWest Quantum Leap Gold Edition, Stormdrum, Truepianos, z3ta+, Sylenth1, Vengeance Sound Packs 1,2 and 3, Toxic Biohazard, Vanguard, Edirol Orchestral, NI Massive, PoiZonea and SuperRiff Guitar.

Preferred Music type to create?
I mostly make trance, classical, new age and orchestral music.

How long have you been making digital music for?
About 2 years I guess, started in FL Studio 8 from scratch, using the default FL pack.

]Where would you like to take your music to?
Will do music technology to drastically improve my music making skills and make it more technical and independent(not so dependent on already made VST sounds)
Already have one album up, at least it's a start. I really don't know if I want to join a company or a record to promote my music and sell it, I want to sell my own music personally so I get all the 100% profit and just let people hear what emotions I try to put into my music.

There's lots more I can include but I can't be bothered, just check out my latest music to get the jest of it. My 2009 aren't that good as I was experimenting with genres and VSTs.

I wish to nominate another find orchestral artist here on Newgrounds, PenguinSam

I would like to nominate myself and here is why:

-I have only been writing songs for a little under a year at this point, I spent 6 months writing songs, 3 months teaching those songs to a band, cut a self produced EP with my friend Gabe, and try my ass off, and you just wouldn't believe how hard it can be to get people to listen to a new band.

-I recently uploaded 7 tracks to the audio portal which samples everything I do from some of my experimental ac cappella stuff, to funk, to soul, to grunge, and all over the place.

-My sound is pretty raw, what you hear on the track is very much what we sound like live, all of the tracks were pretty much just one take, aside from Living with Telemarketers VOX, and Shadow Puppets I dont really use many effects, just a little reverb on my voice and some interesting vocal techniques that I started using creates our sound.

-I would just like to be recognized for doing my thing, and know that I am doing something right with my sound, or wrong for that matter, just consider my music for what it is, the recordings are amateur, and I haven't been doing this for long. Just go http://vaudevillefreud.newgrounds.com/

People are allowed to nominate themselves. It says so in the original post. So either get over it, or just be quiet about it. Because it's perfectly within the standards of this thread for people to nominate themselves.
