A pretty cool opportunity for musicians has come up and it involved performing for the TTC – Toronto Transit Commission. They are looking for new musicians to perform on TTC grounds. On top of having a great opportunity to perform, get paid tips, sell cds/merch, and hand out business cards – you also have a chance to apply to have a song recorded for free! Check it out…
Here’s an except from the article explaining everything on the TTC’s website:
“There are 90 three-year licenses up for grabs for the subway musicians program, now known as Underground Sounds. And through the TTC’s partnership with Universal Music Canada, one grand prize winner will get to record their song and have it featured in an exclusive Apple Music ‘Tracks on Tracks’ playlist, available at applemusic.com/rushhour or applemusic.com/hushhour.”
There whole article can be found here:
You’ll need to submit an audition online, be 18 years of age, live in the GTA and NOT be an employee of either the TTC or Universal Music Canada, damn conflicts on interest! 🙁
That’s it though, if you learned about this on the TME webpage then please comment below and let us all know if you applied, how it went, and if you were accepted to take part!
Best of luck everyone, for more info check out the www.undergroundsounds.ca webpage, cheers!
