Helpful Hints

  • When submitting a CD, suggest the three most appropriate songs on the disc to be reviewed.
  • One page with bio, press and contact info is usually sufficient. If you are selected, additional promotional materials may be requested.
  • when submitting INCLUDE video links, please.
  • October is probably the best time to send a kit for the coming year.
  • If you have applied in the past and have not recorded anything new, don’t send another cd. Sell it instead. We have your other one here.

Bonus Points

  • A list of workshop possibilities.
  • A recent live recording.
  • Remove the shrink-wrap from the CD. If in a jewel case, remove from jewel case and send with the booklet.
