The Nimbus Music Business class is pleased to announce the top 10 acts for this year’s Nimbus Recording Competition! With over 144 entries from around the world, it was hard to choose, but after much adjudicating, we are ready to unveil the list!
The Nimbus Recording Competition gives artists and bands the opportunity to win a radio-ready single produced and mixed by Shawn Cole (Wanting Qu, Half Moon Run, Bend Sinister, Said The Whale, etc.) and engineered with the assistance of Nimbus students and instructors in our world-class studios. The single will be released (at the winner’s option) on Business Class Records. In addition, the winner will receive an Artist Development Plan and ongoing consultation with the Nimbus Music Business Program. Previous winners of the competition have included We Hunt Buffalo, Cobra Ramone, Raquel Cole, and Randy Ponzio.
Four acts will be selected from the top 10 by Nimbus Music Business students to perform at a showcase event on Thursday, April 16, 2015 at The Roxy Nightclub (932 Granville St, Vancouver, BC). The four finalists will be selected based on originality, song & music composition, vocals, and overall strength of their EPK.
Many thanks to everyone who entered. Narrowing it down to these ten amazing talents was a truly difficult task. In one week’s time we will announce the final four!
Here is the top 10 list of artists, in alphabetical order, chosen by the Music Business class:
