Singer-songwriter Carol Keogh has been announced as the winner of Unsigned and Online, a competition to promote independent Irish music. Unsigned and Online was the collaboration of Microsoft and MUZU TV, in association with IMRO (Irish Music Rights Organisation), designed to challenge unsigned musicians to use various Microsoft products and digital media to promote their band. Over the past ten weeks bands and artists from around the country battled it out to win points online and vie for the Number 1 spot. The artists' videos were viewed nearly 100,000 times.
Carol Keogh walks away an amazing prize worth over €10,000. The prize consists of a digital marketing campaign across Microsoft platforms, including Windows Live and MSN, Ireland’s number one portal, an acoustic session in MUZU TV’s studio and a slot on stage at an upcoming gig at Dublin’s The Academy.
