MusicMogul.com was an online music world targeting aspiring musicians. They hoped to combine the popularity of social-networking sites, music television shows like "American Idol" and online multiplayer games.

History[edit]

Founded in 2008, Music Mogul was the product of a collaboration between professionals from the gaming and music industries: CEO Nicholas Longano, a video game industry veteran; Chief Creative Officer & Music Supervisor Rodney Jerkins, a Grammy – winning music producer; Chief Talent Operations Ray Brown, formerly with Ribeiro & Brown Management, Nu Life Entertainment and Southern Boy Entertainment.[1]

Music Mogul Features[edit]

Competition[edit]

Registered users uploaded videos or linked YouTube videos to their profile. These videos were auditions for the Music Mogul Competition. Other users can vote on each video a maximum of one time on a scale of 1 to 10. Musicians are rated both on their points and their average rating.

Performers were to be selected by their online peers and an industry panel of judges to win a three song demo deal with Rodney Jerkins’ Darkchild Productions.[2]

One live competition was hosted in Los Angeles in August 2009, and was won by Nashville-based singer/songwriter Suzi Oravec.

The site appears to be defunct as of 2010.
