“Our band, Lost In Atlantis, were approached by Music Gorilla for the opportunity to perform at a NYC showcase for Columbia Records. We were surprised to see how many fans believed in us to get us all the way to and from NYC. Once we arrived to the famous Bitter End, we were greeted by a friendly personnel from MG. We received amazing feedback from Columbia Records, we’re looking forward on letting our relationship grow with them. MG has opened up a lot of doors! They’re a company that’s truly for the artist!”
