The A&R team here at SKIO is listening to discover and reward creators who are making music that deserves recognition. So we’re excited to hear your version of an original Pop song!

Make sure to submit your original Pop song by April 25th, for a chance to win some awesome prizes that will help you create more music and give you recognition for your skills! Whether the project is new or an old track that’s already done, it doesn’t matter. Just give it all you’ve got!

The grand prize winner has a chance to make moves for their career, winning a 1-on-1 session with DJ Swivel, and receiving $150 to spend on studio time, hiring vocalists, mix engineers, or your recording project. First prize also includes a 1 year subscription to ‘Insight Reports’, giving you in-depth feedback and valuable data for every song you submit to our contests, as well as a LANDR Pro account and more!

Suitable Sub Genres and Styles include: Radio / Top 40, Dance and Electro Pop, Pop Rock & Alternative Pop Crossovers, Diva and Teen Pop, Adult and Contemporary

For example, here are some artists you can reference: Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Khalid, Lauv, Owl City, Alessia Cara, Shawn Mendes, Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, and Maroon 5

Every single submission will be heard by our team of A&R’s, so give it your all because winners will be selected by our guest judge, multi-Grammy winning producer and engineer DJ Swivel.

*Be sure your submission is originally created by you, and is not a remixed version of an existing track! *
