Final Call for Make Music Here Contest Submissions!

ust a friendly reminder that our Make Music Here Contest closes on Monday, June 27 at 12pm PST! Make sure you get your form filled out before then. 🙂 Youth submissions welcome!


Calling all Slocan Valley Bands and Musicians: It’s the Make Music Here Contest! 

Send us a rough-cut video or audio recording of you performing one original song for a chance to win a professional studio recording session and so much more! 

Winners will receive:
⭐️ A professional recording session to produce your song at a Slocan Valley recording studio: Sonic Turtle Studio (Adham Shaikh), Hallowed Sound (Roger Swan) or Sincerity Sound Studio (Barry Jones).
⭐️ The opportunity to be featured in a special presentation on Radio Free Winlove where you can perform your song live 
⭐️ A professional development workshop with Paul Hinrichs of On the Road Management and Executive/Artistic Director of Kaslo Jazz Etc. Festival
⭐️ A personal digital marketing session with Karen Kornelsen, Slocan Valley Business Support Advisor and Owner of Peak to Moon Creative 

Don’t worry, your video or audio contest entry DOES NOT have to be polished. It can be gritty, home-made and even be done on your phone!  We are looking for talent and character, and not judging production values. Multiple winners will be chosen!
