Talent search offers great prizes, including live performance dates

Sing It Up VI returns

Sing It Up VI is the Island’s newest talent search.

Singers of all ages compete for prizes including studio time at Nashville Break Free Music Group. (The winners do not have to go to Nashville to redeem their studio time; they can also take advantage of this prize via Skype or email.)

Winners also receive a photo shoot from Katie Clarkson Photography, Long and McQuade certificates, and some tour dates, including an opening spot at Coombs Rodeo Grounds, and a performance at The Duncan Showroom (where they will be recorded and videos and given the footage for their press kit).

The contest includes workshops for the contestants in between each round to help them choose the best song, live performance tips, vocal warm-ups and tips on dealing with nerves.

The singers will be given feedback on their performance.

The contest is designed to celebrate, encourage and inspire singers while giving them a platform to practise and hone their skills.

Making The Band

“Making The Band” is the chance for musicians and bands to hit the stage and show off their skills.

It is also designed to inspire, encourage and  celebrate their talents. The workshop not only will give them more tips and skills but is a great networking opportunity.

The winning band will receive studio time at Break Free Music Group in Nashville, two photo shoots with Katie Clarkson (one with just the band and one with the winning singer also). Although the contest is open to full bands, duos and trios may also enter, along with individual musicians. They will be judged individually.

The contest will be held at the fabulous Headliners in Nanaimo, The Comox Recreation Centre in Comox and The Coombs Rodeo Grounds for the finals.
