Musicians age 22 and under in northern Colorado are invited to submit an entry for the Sonic Spotlight, a new virtual music showcase and competition sponsored by the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery, 105.5 The Colorado Sound, and the Bohemian Foundation.
Sonic Spotlight seeks fresh sounds from any genre; selected artists and bands will get a chance to work with industry experts, connect with creative peers, receive radio airplay, create a professional music video, win prizes, and level up their music.
This fall, the competition will present two virtual showcases featuring some of the region’s most talented emerging musicians. The Sonic Round will kick off with never-before-heard radio-ready tracks from all eight semifinalists taking over the airwaves on 105.5 The Colorado Sound. The program will then culminate in the Spotlight Round, debuting music videos created by each finalist during the program with professional support in an exciting, interactive online broadcast.
A panel of music industry veterans will be present throughout the program and will determine which artists advance and, ultimately, which finalist is named winner of Sonic Spotlight 2020.
All Sonic Spotlight showcases, mentoring sessions, and artist opportunities will be held virtually.
