Music PEI Golden Ticket Program

The Golden Ticket is designed to assist emerging artists to develop or improve their profile. This unique program will take an artist with a new previously unreleased song through the process of recording a releasing a single with the goal of developing the artists profile, receive some radio play and educate the artist in the business process.

Three artists will be selected through a juried submission process. The program will provide product development for their art and business in the early stages of their career. Eligible artists (solo or band in all genres) must have demonstrated a commitment to their music career showing some early successes and a desire to take their career to the next level of development. Proven or established national and internationally touring artists are not eligible.

Each artist will be given 4 months to complete the program from beginning to end. Music PEI will accept submissions until August 31st, 2018. A short list will be created from the submissions and those artists will be asked to audition. The submissions must include a rough demo of the song they wish to record, lyrics and samples of other work (recordings, videos).

Successful applicants will be selected based on their previous success, ability and commitment. This program is designed to work with performing artists, so Music PEI will be looking for artists who are committed to the potential of touring and love being on stage.

The goal is to help create 3 new businesses and give artists the tools to succeed in the music business. This kind of incubation program can offer real results and help to expedite the learning process, sometimes by years. The key for success will be selecting the appropriate participants.
