The Backline Charitable Trust will soon produce its third Hawke’s Bay Compilation Vinyl Record – Under the Sun, Vol 3. This is a showcase of Hawke’s Bay artists and will reflect the diversity and quality of new and established musicians producing original music in the region.
Applicants are invited to submit one song, after which the judging panel will review the entries and make a selection. The selected tracks – probably ten songs on the record – will be mastered at Munki Studios in Wellington. A limited number (300) of physical copies of the compilation will be produced and given away to market our HB artists – all artists will receive a physical copy of the record.
The judging panel will be made up of current music industry representatives; this lineup changes every year to ensure diverse backgrounds and perspectives.
All works accepted for this compilation project must primarily feature an artist who is either from, or has spent a proportionate amount of time based in Hawke’s Bay.
Deadline for entries is 18 August.
