For the second year in a row, Believe Distribution Services partners with Pop Montreal to present the “We Believe in Pop!” award, which will highlight an indie and emerging artist who blew our minds during the festival for both their music and performance. The winner will be awarded a digital distribution contract and benefit from Believe’s services and expertise in digital distribution.

But what’s the prize? The winner will be awarded a digital distribution contract, which will allow them to distribute their music on music services, such as Spotify, iTunes and YouTube, all around the world. Through that contract, the winning artist or band will have their own dedicated label manager who will work with them to create a good commercial release strategy, locally and internationally, by providing them advice and expertise regarding all things digital.

Last year, electronic-pop trio Caveboy charmed us with their synth heavy dream pop and groovy beats as well as their high energy show. Who will be the winner this year?

We’ll announce it on September 19th, when we’ll somewhat recover from the festival, but until then, here are some of the bands that already caught our ears and who are supported by Believe – listen to the playlist here.
