Singer-songwriters compete for mentoring opp with JUNO Award-winner [News]

Toronto, ON – Beginning October 8, 2013, unsigned Canadian singer-songwriters can enter one original song in the 2014 Singer-Songwriter Mentor Experience, sponsored by Aspiring Canadian Writers Contests Inc. and supported by Industry Partner, Songwriters Association of Canada.

Entries will be reviewed by a panel of singer-songwriter judges: Lesley Pike, Gibson’s featured artist, 2013 Sundance London film and music festival; Luther Mallory, former frontman of Crush Luther, pop-rock band with two #1 hits on Much More Music; Katie Rox, former lead singer of Jakalope, industrial-rock band with multiple MMVA nominations; Melanie Durrant, 2013 Juno Award-nominated artist for Reggae Single of the Year; and Theo Tams, Gemini Award-nominated artist and 2008 Canadian Idol champion.

You can find more information after the jump link below.

The Top 3 Grand Prize Winners will receive private online songwriting mentoring sessions with multiple Juno Award-winning artist, Luba. “I’m very proud to be associated with the 2014 Singer-Songwriter Mentor Experience,” says Luba. “I believe it will help foster great, homegrown talent and I look forward to mentoring the Top 3.”

As part of the Top 25 Finalists, the Top 3 Grand Prize Winners will also receive annual memberships to the Songwriters Association of Canada.

The 2014 Singer-Songwriter Mentor Experience will run for one year only and is modelled after the Aspiring Canadian Writers Contests Inc.’s annual poetry contest for unpublished writers (http://www.aspiringpoetscontest.org) whose Top 3 winners receive private online mentoring sessions with a published poet.

Video entries for the singer-songwriter contest can be submitted at http://www.songwritermentorexperience.org from October 8, 2013 to December 22, 2013, or until 300 eligible entries are received.
