Songwriting Contest

Contest is not genre-specific. Are you a singer/songwriter? Have you written a country song? A hip hop track? Some latin rhythms? A jazz tune? A chamber orchestra piece? A percussion and synthesizer rhapsody? An opera? Something else entirely? If so, then you can enter the 34° 86° songwriting competition!

All entrants receive some SF swag. The top three winners will be featured in a showcase at 6pm. Each winner may perform on the 34° 86° stage for 15 minutes. The grand prize winner gets to record one song for free in the SF studio.

There is no entry fee for the contest, but please email startlinglyfreshrecords@gmail.com to enter. Entry deadline is August 5. Let the talent stampede begin!
