Get your demo heard at SonyMusic's Southern Talent Expo!

If you've got a demo that's just begging to be heard, listen up. SonyMusic Nashville's A&R department is hosting the Southern Talent Expo in Athens on Nov. 19.  During the event, musicians are invited to drop off their demos for listening and review by the SonyMusic folks. Every submission will be heard. So many good bands fly under the radar and never get their due notice from record companies — this is a great shot at getting taking your musical career to the next level.

Submissions will be accepted on the 19th from 5-7 p.m. in the UGA Music Business Program office (Caldwell Hall rm. 202).  This is a great chance to get your/your bands music looked at by music business professionals, and who knows, maybe you'll be one of the Expo's winning musicians.

Five to ten acts will be chosen from the submissions to perform at a showcase.  The winner of that showcase will then get the chance to perform live for SonyMusic executives. And just because it's SonyMusic Nashville doesn't mean it's just for country acts; all genres are welcome.

If you're interested and want more information, check out the event on Facebook here.

Good luck!
