CBC Music’s Searchlight 2015 Now Open!
CBC Music presents Searchlight 2015 – The Hunt for Canada’s Best New Artist:
Last year, thousands of Canadian bands showcased their range of musical abilities, Lauren Mann & The Fairly Odd Folk took home the grand prize of a showcase at the CBC Music Festival and $20,000 in gear from Yamaha, and tons of other bands received radio play and national exposure that led to record deals, more radio play, coverage in newspapers and magazines, and tons of new fans.
Submissions opened on March 2 and will be closing on March 29. You can apply here and your submissions will be judged by a panel of Searchlight judges! Who are this year’s judges? Saukrates, Jenn Grant and Dan Boeckner (click here to check out their bios). They’ll be tasked with selecting 5 of the 10 national finalists, announcing the final 4 acts live on Q on May 12 and crowning a winner on May 15.
