The #thestorybehindmymusic contest has ended, but the rising talent in the music industry sure doesn’t stop here! Thank you to all of the up and coming musicians who entered, we couldn’t be any prouder to tell your stories of how you got started in music.

It’s our pleasure to announce the last winner of the contest, but certainly not least, Beat The System out of New York, New York! Here’s their story:

Gerald was 15 years old when he first heard the band Creed on radio. “I was so blown away by their music that instead of first finding out more about Creed, I researched on the person who discovered the band. After having found her name, I remember vividly praying to God that one day, my band will be discovered by Diana Meltzer,” Gerald explains. Fast forward 10 years later, his prayer was answered when the award-winning former world no.1 A&R reached out to him and his band.
