We’re Launching The Allan Slaight JUNO Master Class!

Jun 30, 2015

We’ve got major news. You might want to grab a seat for this one. Are you ready? Here we go:

Today The JUNO Awards and Slaight Music are launching Canada’s premier artist development program, the Allan Slaight JUNO Master Class.

Co-developed with Canada’s Music Incubator through Coalition Music, the Allan Slaight JUNO Master Class will help emerging artists hone their craft all the while giving them the tools they need to take their music career to the next level. There’s no submission fee required to apply, however all applicants must be endorsed by an active CARAS Academy Delegate.

Submissions will go through two rounds of judging. Canadian music industry heavyweights will narrow the submissions down to the top ten, and our Super Jury will take it from there. This year’s Super Jury includes Gavin Brown, Max Kerman (Arkells), Sam Roberts (Sam Roberts Band), and more!

The three finalists will be flown out to Toronto to take part in the week-long Master Class, and to top it off, the graduates will be flown out to Calgary for The 2016 JUNO Awards.

Are you ready to take your music career to the next level? Find out if you’re eligible to join the Master Class!

Are you an active CARAS Academy Delegate? Here’s your chance to endorse the artists that you believe are ready to take the next step in their music careers. Let the artists in your community know that you stand behind them by telling them about this program.

What are you waiting for? Submissions are now open, but not for long! Submissions close Monday, July 27, 2015 at 5PM EST.
