Music From The Streets is a vehicle for street musicians in the 21st century; it delivers their art across digital media, TV and radio, and brings an audience to their stage – in other words – the streets.
Music From The Streets will soon launch a national search to find the best street musicians in the country, and you will be the talent scout. Have you seen an incredible street musician in your area? This is your chance to spotlight that talent, potentially earn money for finding a new artist, and support the fight against homelessness at the same time.
Music lovers from across the United States will be able to post videos of their favorite local street musicians to this site. Submissions will be reviewed by music industry leaders and the executive staff of Music From The Streets, who will determine the Top 30 artists.
An up close and personal interview with each of the Top 30 artists, along with a live performance, will be filmed and posted for viewing by fans from across the country, as well as our esteemed panel of music industry judges. The judges and fans alike will then be able to vote on their favorites to determine the final Top 10 Music From The Streets artists. The chosen 10 will be included on a Music From The Streets compilation of the greatest street musicians in the country – found by you!
If you are one of the brilliant few whose artist made it into the Top 10, you will receive a cash award for your A&R savvy, an A&R credit on the compilation, and a donation to the nonprofit of your choice in your area that is working to fight homelessness. You will also receive a download of the Music From The Streets compilation before its release to the general public. In addition, the Top 10 artist you submitted will receive a cash award, along with a recording contract with the Music From The Streets record label, and the chance to work with some of the biggest producers in the industry to record their song for the Music From The Streets For The Streets compilation.
And if that’s not enough, the entire process of searching for the greatest street musicians in the country will be filmed by our production partners, the producers of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, resulting in a documentary/reality TV series for television. The final 10 artists will continue to be filmed as they record their single for the CD release, and their performance in a live concert special will be included in the series.
