We’re back with the 26th showcase, or 2 of 4 for final 7th year out of… you know what, we suck at maths. The point is our artists get nostalgic about Boot Camp (is there any other way to be?), choose who would win in their place if they didn’t make it, and their specific ninja moves to take the winning artist out when we speak to Find the Others, Jesse Roper and Smash Boom Pow.
Did you miss the fun Fortune Sound Club last Thursday? It’s the beginning of the end for the BC PEAK Performance Project. The first of the last showcases has begun and the countdown is on. See what our artists think was the best part of Boot Camp form a scant 3 weeks ago, who they’d let win in their place, and how they’d eventually ‘remove’ the winners from their place at the top when we interview Joy District, Bed of Stars and Mindil Beach
102.7 The PEAK and Music BC kick off the 2015 PEAK Performance Project Showcase Series powered by Cariboo Brewing.
The four-week adjudicated showcase series will feature each of the Top 12 artists, so be sure to come out and support your favourites in their running for the grand prize of 102.7 thousand dollars.
While both the BC and Alberta projects are run as separate programs in each province, there is an incredible opportunity to create bridges between BC and Alberta though the shared educational experience at the RockRidge Canyon Boot camp in Princeton, BC.
To top that off, Nimbus School of Recording and Media will be on site recording songs that have been co-written between the BC and Alberta Artists!
Starting August 27th, follow the Alberta and BC Artists experience though their eyes, published daily on:
“The relationships that have been built because of the PEAK Performance Project have created a unique sense of community amongst BC artists; and now BC and Alberta artists. The educational component has given over 100 bands the tools they need to be successful in a business sense, as well as to help them develop artistically. After 6 years of impressive talent, we can’t wait to see what year 7 has in store.“
– Bob D’Eith, Executive Director of Music BC.
“Great radio is built on great music. With The PEAK Performance Project let’s do all we can to make sure our Alberta musicians are given every resource and every opportunity to create that music. The artists in the ever-growing PEAK Performance community are building the soundtrack for our province. 95.3 The PEAK is so proud of the twelve artists of The PEAK Performance Alberta’s inaugural year and are excited to hear what 2015 will bring.”
– Kath Thompson, Program Director, 95.3 The PEAK ”
