OC Studio will award studio time to music competition winners
Orange County recording studios and soundstage, Hybrid Studios will be sponsoring the 2018 Unsigned Only music competition. The same team that put together the distinguished International Songwriting Competition (ISC), Unsigned Only brings an innovative and unique spin to music competitions. High-level industry artists and executives judge the competition aimed at unsigned artists and bands. Notable 2017 judges and mentors included The Killers, O.A.R., Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Grouplove, Pete Ganbarg (Executive VP/Head of A&R, Atlantic Records), and Taylor Lindsey (Sr. Director, A&R, Sony Music Nashville) to name a few.
“Unsigned Only is a great competition that focuses on undiscovered talent,” said Hybrid Studios Co-founder Billy Klein, “It’s exciting working with competition winners because there’s always so much obvious talent. We know the 2018 winners are going to be fantastic artists, and we can’t wait to hear what they bring to the studio.”
The Grand Prize Winner will be awarded $20,000 in cash (plus additional prizes) and one-on-one mentoring by a world-class group of record company executives. First and second place winners will also be selected across thirteen categories, and as part of the prize packages, the Grand Prize and Triple Play special promotion winners will both be awarded with studio time to be used at Hybrid Studios.
Other Unsigned Only sponsors include Disk Makers, D’Addario, Lurssen Mastering, Shure, and Berklee College of Music. For more information on Unsigned Only, visit www.UnsignedOnly.com.
