HWY 11 TOP TEN Most Original in the CBC Searchlight UPNorth Contest

We had a fun Easter weekend listening to 106 contestants in the Up North Area for the C.B.C. Searchlight Contest. It took about 15 hours of listening and discussions and developing a point system, based on originality of lyrics, dynamics and production. The panel of judges consisted of press, musicians, producers and music fans. In May, 3rd, 2nd and 1st winner will be announced. The winner will be awarded a :
  • $100 gas card (sponsored by Hwy 11 Records),
  • Three month subscription to JamBox (sponsored by Hwy 11 Records)
  • PRO Annual Account to Musicians Atlas (sponsored by Musicians Atlas)
The following is listed alphabetically and not in order of 1-10

Here are their CBC Searchlight Links so you can continue to vote and listen in and show them some luv and encouragement.

We wish the continued success of all the artists in the contest, a tricky business which takes many skills, and we hope that this is one form of encouragement to continue to share the music with the world.
Don't forget to show support to emerging artists and your local venues that support emerging artists!
