We’re super excited to hear what you got for your original Rock & Alternative songs, as SKIO’s A&R team wants to discover and reward creators who are making music that deserves to be heard!

If it’s a fresh new project or an old track that’s already finished, it doesn’t matter to us! Just submit your original Rock Alternative song by April 25th for a chance to win dope prizes geared to help you make more music and earn recognition for your skills.

The grand prize includes a 1-on-1 session with DJ Swivel, and we’re including $150 to use on studio time, hiring vocalists and engineers, or towards your next recording project. Plus first place will also win a 1 year subscription to ‘Insight Reports’, giving you personalized feedback and access to powerful data for every song you submit to our contests, as well as a LANDR Pro account and more!

Suitable genres and Sub Genres include: Modern Rock, Alternative Crossovers, Classic Rock, 80’s and 90’s Rock, Psychedelic Rock, Metal, Grunge, Punk, and Soft Rock

For example, here are some artists you can reference: Cage The Elephant, Hyro the Hero, Empire of the Sun, Nirvana, Green Day, Bullet for my Valentine, Arcade Fire, Muse, Imagine Dragons, Twenty One Pilots, Beatles, Aerosmith, U2, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, and Fleetwood Mac.

Give it all you’ve got because every submission will be heard by SKIO A&R’s, and the 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! *
