Local Musicians, this is your call. I am looking for the next big thing, the next great local musician!  I would like you, the local artist, to send me your mp3 and info/bio sheet or drop off a CD.

Here's how it will work. I will weed them down to the top bands/singers/artists. Each week, I will post the info and music for 2 at a time, and let everyone vote on the best, then that person or band will move on to the next round until we crown the best local artist in the Northland.

If nothing else, I will be happy to talk to anyone about why they didn't make the final, or what was good and bad about their project.

Why am I doing this? For many reasons, there is good talent in the area and I 'd like to showcase some of it. I hear complaints about how hard it is to make it and reach an audience. So, here's your audience, reach them, no excuses now!!!

If you think you are the next big thing or you want to be, send me an mp3 or a CD and a info/bio sheet. You must include a picture, bio sheet about you and your music, and at least 2 songs (I will choose the best). You may drop off an album (if that's what you have done), but it must be on CD.  My email is chrisallen@townsquaremedia.com and the address is 14 East Central Entrance, Duluth, MN 55811

If you do send me an email with your info, put "local artist" in the subject area.

Thanks, and good luck.
