Noise-Timbre Singer-Songwriter Programme

I always feel that Singapore have talented Singers and Songwriters. It’s just that they are hiding somewhere. Which is why I always try my best to intro them in my blog when I find one.
Now there’s another way for local talents to get noticed. Noise Singapore and Timbre are launching a platform to provide young, talented singer-songwriters in Singapore with the first step to becoming the next big thing. The Noise-Timbre Singer-Songwriter Programme aims to uncover unknown gems on YouTube and have them trained by top musicians in Singapore before giving them the chance to perform live at Timbre @ The Substation.
How to Participate
From 14 December 2010 to 16 January 2011, local youths aged 18-35 can take part as an individual or duo by recording videos of themselves performing one original song and one song of their choice, and submit their YouTube video links to Noise Singapore Website to take part in this competition.
The first winner will be picked by Noise Singapore and Timbre in February 2011, while 10 other finalists will be unveiled at the same time for public voting on Noise Singapore Website and the Timbre Music Academy Facebook page. Based on the number of “likes” for the videos and ratings by judges from Noise and Timbre, one winner will be chosen each month from March to July 2011.
The 6 winners will undergo a fully sponsored four weeks workshop by Mang Irama Dusique from Goodfellas/Zero Sequence and music veteran Kevin Mathews to hone their songwriting skills, performance technique and musicianship before taking to the stage for a 20-minute set at Timbre @ The Substation. This is like one of the best prize an aspiring Singer/Songwriter can get. Who knows, he/she might be talent hunted that evening at Timbre.
So hurry! Closing date for submission is 16 Jan 2011. Head down to Noise Singapore website for more info.
