Designed for solo artists, bands, and singers who are not signed to a major label record company, Unsigned Only's goal is to find an outstanding, talented performing artist: a band, singer, or solo artist...a newcomer or veteran...raw or polished – the "gem" that needs to be discovered. The Grand Prize Winner will be awarded $10,000 in cash (plus additional prizes) and one-on-one mentoring by an elite group of record company executives. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for an artist to directly network with the highest level of record company professionals and get guidance, advice, feedback, and networking opportunities. Entries are being accepted now until March 13, 2014.
Winners are selected by renowned recording artists and journalists from top music publications. The 2014 panel includes: (Hall & Oates); 3 Doors Down; Neon Trees; Black Francis (The Pixies); David Crowder; Craig Morgan; Robert Smith (The Cure); Rosanne Cash; Darryl McDaniels (Run DMC); Of Monsters and Men; Aaron Shust; G.
