Registration instructions - on Youtube

Australia (PRWEB) October 18, 2011
Aussie musicians usually punch above their weight on the world stage. Think Jet, Silverchair, The Veronicas and Savage Garden. With digital music distribution changing the landscape of the music industry forever and opportunities for aspiring musicians few and far between - what better way to find diamonds in the rough than by going with the flow! How? A song contest run entirely via Facebook.
But it’s not all about the voting public. Melbourne based organiser Underground Talent has brought in a swathe of music industry guns to hand pick the Top 8 songs. The four judges include John Foreman (Australian Idol, Good Morning Australia, Carols by Candelight and Writer of “The Flame” - Sydney Olympics), Tim Blackwell (Nova FM National Drive Show 4pm-6pm), Natalie Gauci (Australian Idol Winner 2008 and Singer/Songwriter with multiple Aria Chart hits), Tony Bourke (Touring Pianist, Eskimo Joe), Heidi Peitzner (Director at Williams Talent Management) and Scott Wilson (Replicat Pty Ltd, owner/creator of the Catapult Song Contest).
Of his involvement with the competition, John Foreman said “It’s a really exciting time to be in music, there is so much more room for variety. Music that used to be considered niche can now find a big audience online. Underground Talent presenting the 2011 Catapult Song Contest represents a real shift in thinking that the whole music industry needs to start adopting”.
Co-Director of Underground Talent Michelle Bourke, has been surprised and delighted at the volume of interest in the contest from local acts, “Musicians have just been flocking to enter the contest! We launched on the 3rd of October and have received over 1000 entrants and 2000 original Australian songs in the last 14 days. We expect over 2000 entrants in total - that’s over 10% of the entire base of all active original Australian artists online right now!”
The contest is completely free, open to any original Australian song and both signed or unsigned artists are eligible to enter. The prize pool totals 35 thousand dollars and every entrant receives a free 12 month membership worth $180 to an all-new Australian site called Playfi which allows musicians to promote and sell music directly through Facebook. Musicians have until the 11th of Nov to enter their track and Top 50 voting continues until the 16th. The Top 8 are returned to public voting on the 21st of Nov 2011. Winners will be announced via Facebook on the 30th of Nov 2011.

WOW!! great idea.

I'm currently reading Moonwalk by Michael Jackson. Interestingly, the Jackson 5 and many many others all took part regularly in talent quests everywhere. It was a way of getting a profile, a fan following, experience AND money, while doing it. Its what brought them to attention of Motown, and even the David Frost TV show.
