WAM: Song Of The Year Competition
After the successful WAM Festival WAM are back with their Song Of The Year Competition.
WAM Festival is one of the most exciting times in the Perth calendar as it brings together the entire WA music community for two days to point out to the east coast that WA actually makes awesome music. Apart from a large number of bands playing it's a forum where a wide-range of topics are discussed including; whether or not Triple J is crucial to helping you make it big, whether you need to get drunk to network, is community radio all that great and more which you can read about HERE.
And after all that fun WAM is back with their Song Of The Year competition with their grand prize offering $3000 in cash, alongside the opportunity to record, get your song mastered by William Bowden (recieved a Grammy for his work on Goyte's Somebody I Used To Know), a publishing deal, your CDs pressed, a chance to perform at WAM Festival 2015 and more which you can read about HERE. Past winners include Pilerats' fave Rainy Day Women whose song Mrs Jones we premiered recently. To enter, click HERE but be quick as entries close 5pm December 15. P.S. It's cheaper if you're a WAM member!
But that isn't the only prize! There are sixteen other catergories to get involved in including; Metal, Punk / Hardcore, Electronic, Urban / Hip Hop, Pop, Rock, Outstanding Indigenous, Outstanding Regional and more including a series of school-related prizes which you can read about HERE. So if you're in a band that you reckon you deserves some recogition or you have a friend who knows how to strum the guitar get them to submit their music!
