Greetings, Think Like a Label readers, we wanted to take a moment to tell you about an amazing opportunity!
The kind folks at Guilford Sound are hosting a contest! They are giving away two weeks of studio time (12 ten hour days), housing (in the aforementioned, newly renovated eighteenth century farmhouse), and a $1000 stipend to an unsigned band or solo artist!
The total value of this prize is $20,000 and all you have to do for a chance to win is ENTER!
GUILFORD, VT (February 8, 2013) — Applications are now being accepted from northeast-based bands and solo artists for a two-week recording residency at Guilford Sound, a newly-constructed recording facility located in the foothills of southern Vermont. The chosen band will receive twelve days in the studio, a stipend of $1,000 and accommodations — a package valued at over $20,000.
From August 18- September 1, 2013, Guilford Sound will host an unsigned northeast band or solo artist for a two-week recording residency, providing 12 ten-hour days of studio time, housing, and a $1000 stipend. “As a former player in a number of unsigned projects, I know how valuable it would have been to spend two unencumbered weeks in a professional studio to really hone our songs and to develop our sound,” says Snyder. Interested musicians from New England, Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania may submit an application and music samples for consideration by March 29th, 2013. A winner will be chosen in-house and announced in late May.
Artist accommodations will be provided on-site in a recently restored 1790’s five-bedroom farmhouse just down the hill from the studio. Work has begun on a new modern housing facility being built directly into the Vermont landscape that will easily accommodate up to 12 people. In keeping with their quest to minimize impact, the new passive solar building will be high performance, with three sides underground and topped with a living roof. This five-bedroom facility is currently under construction and should be ready for artists by fall of 2013.
