Wed, 03 Dec 2014 14:21:21
Calling all aspiring artists! You can enter the Mountain Dew-backed Green Label Sound: Open Call, which is a national search for the next up-and-coming musical talent, offered through a collaboration with SoundCloud and with the support of former Green Label Sound artist, RAC. The contest is designed to give emerging artists a stage for exposure.
The contest winner will receive a $50,000 grant to record an EP, the ability to tap RAC for career advice, a music video and an opportunity to take the stage in 2015 at the Green Label House during SXSW, the premiere music event for emerging artists.
That's great prize loot right there. Why not enter? What's stopping you?
"After years of doing remixes, I released my first original track with Green Label Sound," says RAC. "Their support kick-started a whole new side of my career. They gave me resources to do things that I had no way of doing on my own. I also owe a lot to Soundcloud. They've created an environment for artists to flourish and find a fan base, which didn't exist before. I'm thrilled to work with DEW and Soundcloud for Green Label Sound: Open Call and it makes me so happy that they are continuing to support new artists."
Now through December 26, 2014, aspiring musicians across all genres are invited to visit promotions.soundcloud.com to submit an original piece of work for consideration by a panel of judges, including RAC and Marc Ecko, music industry insider and Founder and Chief Brand Officer of Complex.
Ten semi-finalists will be selected and the contest winner will be chosen through a combination of judges' input and consumer votes submitted from January 19 through 30, 2015.
There you have it – all the intel and a link to get started.
