Two of our talented artists have been announced as FINALISTS in the 2015 ‘Unsigned Only’ competition in Nashville, USA. Stone Parade’s upcoming single ‘Be Someone’ (Screen Shot Category) and Central Coast, NSW based Liam Burrows has multiple songs in several categories. Liam is represented in the Adult Contemporary Category for ‘You Shook Me’ and ‘Never Fallen in Love’. Liam is also in the Vocal Performance Category for ‘You Shook Me’.

Screen Shot is a new category that has been added this year, and it is geared toward helping artists get their music in film, TV, video games and advertising. Music execs who are looking to place music in various projects will be judging this category and will also provide advice on music licensing to the winner of the category. Included are: Michelle Bayer (Shelly Bay Music); Michelle Silverman (Modern Planet); Ani Johnson (Monomyth Media); Evan Stein (Experience Music Group); Velma Barkwell (East End Music Productions); Jen Taunton (Level Two Music)

Designed for solo artists, bands, and singers who are not signed to a major label, Unsigned Only’s goal is to find an outstanding, talented performing artist: a band, singer, or solo artist.

All finalists will now be judged by the likes of Robert Smith (The Cure), Sinead O’Connor, The Killers and Darryl McDaniels. (Run DMC)

Full list of finalists can be found here:

Winners will be announced in September with the overall winner receiving US $10,000 and category winners receiving US $1,000.

We wish Stone Parade and Liam the best of luck!
