We will be pairing artists from the East Coast of Canada with artists from Scotland to create, record and release an original song throughout autumn 2021 / winter 2022. FLOURISH Festival will facilitate and fund the songwriting, recording and release of each song. A total of 10 songs will be released as a very special EP in the spring of 2022. Artists will be paired together to work remotely on songs, and record tracks collaboratively, an ocean apart.
Here is the criteria:
- You must be a musical artist, band, etc, etc, etc... based in EITHER Scotland (UK) or New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI or Newfoundland (Canada). Please do not apply if this does not apply to you! It's literally the only criteria.
- Applications are open to ALL genres, ALL experience levels, ALL ages, groups of ALL sizes from 1 person to 100+ people, and ALL languages.
- You don't have to pay us, or anyone any ££ / $$ to submit an application or participate in the project. Just fill out the form below. We will be in touch if you're successful or if you're not successful (don't take it personally)! You'll receive an artist fee, studio time, and all recording / release costs will be covered. Plus you'll 100% make some new friends.
We will also be looking for visual artists to collaborate on this project, but there will be a separate application for this that will open in the winter of 2021, so keep an eye out and tell your friends.
If you have any questions about the project, please contact Jane and Stefan at firstname.lastname@example.org before the application deadline.
Applications close 30th of September 2021!
