Singer/songwriter Sarah VonderHaar has been included in the closed beta trial for MTV’s Rock Band™ Network.
Created by Harmonix Music Systems and MTV Games, Rock Band™ Network will enable musicians to upload their own original recordings and sell their music as playable Rock Band™ tracks through the Rock Band™ Music Store. Currently running the closed version, the Rock Band™ Network open beta will launch this August.
“Nowadays it seems like there are a lot more outlets for independent artists to reach out to their fans with Facebook and Myspace, and I know it’s still in beta, but I really think this will be one more powerful tool for independent artists to reach out to a whole new fan base,” said VonderHaar, a former contestant on America’s Next Top Model. “Plus, I think it will be fun to see how well I do playing my own songs on Rock Band™, and I’m just so thrilled VerveLife helped me to become part of this.”
