Buck and A Dream, LLC, is initiating its matchless search for the best undiscovered music talent through the “Bringing Good Music Back” Campaign (BGMB). Headquartered in Atlanta, GA, artist development and promotion company Buck and A Dream, recognizes that popular music of all genres is in desperate need of fresh innovation. The company created the BGMB Campaign to offer a vehicle capable of cultivating and sustaining the change that will occur in popular music as a result of the Campaign’s mission. Buck and A Dream partners, Greg L. Bowman and Teddy Riley, lend the BGMB Campaign the combined force of success in the music industry and foresight of future music trends, enabling the company to craft a dream into a reality. Riley alone is in part responsible for over one hundred million records sold worldwide, confirming that a dream is indeed a quantitative truth.
The leadership of Buck and A Dream is compelled by a sense of urgency to bring good music back to the market. Co-owner of the company, Teddy Riley, explains, “we’re just trying to right what’s wrong and take music back to when lyrics mattered.” The General Manager of Buck and A Dream, Montayne Farrar says “the music business as a whole is on a down swing. People have begun turning the radio off in favor of listening to older music,” he explains. “That’s not helping music evolve.” Greg L. Bowman, co-owner of Buck and A Dream and architect of the BGMB Campaign makes a more dire prediction. “The quality of music has suffered so severely, that at this rate, appreciable music will be extinct in seven years,” Bowman contends. Buck and A Dream has not invented a publicity stunt; it is an SOS to those who still believe that good music is possible.
The BGMB Campaign is comprised of an on-air radio and concurrent online contest beginning in the fall of 2008. Contestants will compete for the chance to win two million dollars worth of production with the biggest and best names in the popular music industry. A ten-city tour will be initiated in conjunction with the contest, unearthing imaginative music hiding in regional live performance venues. Participating producers include Teddy Riley (Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Bobby Brown), Darius Harrison (Lil Wayne, Cash Money, Destiny’s Child), Andreo “Fanatic” Heard (Will Smith, Beyonce, Michael Jackson), Mike City (Sunshine Anderson, Carl Thomas, Brandy), Ced -Solo (Anthony Hamilton, Kelly Rowland, Ginuwine) and Vernon Smith (Tamia, Heather Headley, Paula Abdul). Renowned television and radio personalities, Steve Harvey and Tom Joyner, are also directly involved the BGMB Campaign, adding to the list highlighting a few of the heavy-hitting industry professionals Buck and A Dream assembled for this undertaking.
