Continuing its mission to discover the best new up-and-coming independent artists, preeminent online music discovery site OurStage.com recently teamed with Digital Broadcasting Group (DBG), producers of Kiefer Sutherland's highly anticipated new online action-thriller series The Confession, to launch "The Confession Song Competition" earlier this month. OurStage artists recently submitted their best original tracks here and one talented winner will have their original music placed on an upcoming webisode of The Confession, which debuted on March 28th on Hulu.com and across select DBG sites. In addition, fans can also participate through March 31st by judging the song submissions, with the competition winners to be announced on or about April 15th.
While the winning artist's song will enhance the ten-part series' ongoing plotline, one fan (to be announced shortly) also won an invitation to the private VIP screening of The Confession at the New York City premiere, alongside Sutherland and the all-star cast. For more information on the show and song competition, go here.
"Filming The Confession was one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences of my entire career," said Sutherland. "I think we've brought to life an experience that our audience will never forget." Given that he has played Jack Bauer, Ace Merrill and starred as David in The Lost Boys, those are big words from K Suth!
"I can't think of a better way for an aspiring musician to gain exposure on the Web," said Chris Young, CEO of DBG. "The Confession is truly a watershed moment in online entertainment, and through our partnership with OurStage, one lucky musician will have the chance to be a part of this momentous period in the history of the Web."
Starring Kiefer Sutherland, The Confession is a story of unique redemption and an exploration of good and evil featuring a hit man (Kiefer Sutherland), and a priest (John Hurt), along with co-stars Max Casella (HBO's The Sopranos) and Michael Badalucco (ABC's The Practice). The story begins on Christmas Eve, when the hit-man enters a church to confess his sins to the priest. Through a series of gripping flashbacks, the Confessor's journey is revealed - laying out what has brought him to this moment and leading the audience to the dramatic ending where the man's chances at ultimate redemption hang in the balance. While at first the Confessor seems to be an evil, cold-blooded killing machine and the Priest the ultimate arbiter of good, as the series develops it becomes clear that both characters are much more complicated than either could have suspected.
I am definitely going to watch The Confession.
