New York, NY – MPress Records, NYC-based independent record label, has just confirmed the lineup for their annual showcase event at this year’s CMJ Music Marathon. The event will take place at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City on Wednesday, October 17th at 2:30 PM, and will feature an exceptional lineup including Antigone Rising, Rachael Sage, A Fragile Tomorrow, Seth Glier & Julia Haltigan. This official CMJ showcase is open to the public, but you can RSVP here. CMJ Badge holders will receive a FREE drink ticket.

MPress’ 6th annual MPressFest CMJ will fundraise the label's compilation series New Arrivals. Launched in 2006, the New Arrivals charity compilation series highlights established and rising indie artists and each benefits a charity – Volume 1 benefited Gulf Coast Hurricane Relief, Volume 2 benefited World Hunger Year, Volume 3 benefited NEDA (National Eating Disorders Association) and Volume 4 benefits The National Network For Youth.

The schedule features MPress flagship artist and multiple Independent Music Award winner Rachael Sage celebrating her milestone 10th release Haunted By You; label-mate and Grammy nominee Seth Glier, whose third MPress release is due January 2013; NYC based singer-songwriter and guitarist Julia Haltigan praised by Interview Magazine for her “throwback charm”; A Fragile Tomorrow, power-pop 4-piece band of brothers including identical twin brothers, whose musicianship has earned them fans in high places namely The Indigo Girls; and long time folk-rock heroines & Hear Music trailblazers Antigone Rising.


MPressFest CMJ 2012 official showcase @ Rockwood Music Hall (196 Allen St) is on Wednesday, October 17th and starts at 2:30 PM. Entry is free for RSVP here.
