And The BC Winners Are…



Last night, 102.7 The PEAK and the Music BC Industry Association announced the winners of the 2015 BC PEAK Performance Project live at the historical Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver. This marks the final year of the 7 year program that has invested over $5 million into the British Columbia music community.

This year’s winner and prizing are as follows:

1st place $102, 000 – Bed of Stars
2nd place $75, 000 – JP Maurice 
3rd place   $50,000 – Van Damsel

The PEAK Performance Project was the brainchild of Music BC Executive Director Bob D’Eith, and funded by a generous Canadian Content Development commitment from the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group. Launched in 2009, the project has assisted in the development of over 120 BC artists with education, marketing, and of course, funding. The top 3 artists from every year have collectively taken home over 1.6 million dollars to spend on their development, with millions more being spent within the BC music industry.

The PEAK Performance Project will continue in Alberta thanks to 95.3 The PEAK in Calgary. The Alberta project will be announcing the winner at it’s finale this Saturday, November 21st at Flames Central, with performances by the top 3 artists Leeroy Stagger, The Royal Foundry, and Transit.

Also, now available for FREE download are the 12 songs from the Top 12 Alberta and BC artists. They were teamed up with the challenge of writing a song to record at boot camp using the theme “Hello, Goodbye”. All 12 songs were recorded in 5 pop-up studios built in a day at the RockRidge Canyon Bootcamp by the Nimbus School of Recording and Media and their amazing crew.

The Top 12 artists were each awarded $5000 in development funding before they joined forces with the PEAK Performance Project Alberta to attend an intense seven-day bootcamp at RockRidge Canyon in Princeton BC. From there, each artist performed at Fortune Sound Club in Vancouver and carried out a number of career enhancing challenges and online voting that accumulated points for the adjudication committee. The Top 3 artists will share over $277,000 in prizing! While the top 3 have already been ranked, we won’t reveal that ranking until the Finale Concert at the legendary Commodore Ballroom on Thursday, November 19th.

BC PPP Showcase #4 Recap feat. Windmills, Van Damsel & JP Maurice

7 years, 33 showcases, 124 artist performances… and that’s only including the showcases you’ve seen! It’s staggering to think of what we’ve done, more so that this was the last showcase maybe forever. There’s only the finale left at this point but let’s not think on that. Let’s always stay in this moment with Windmills, Van Damsel and JP Maurice as we say goodnight, and good luck.
