In 2013, the Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) introduced the CCMA Discovery Program, a national initiative, developed to educate and support artists in their pursuit of a career in the country music industry.
This program enhanced the formerly known CCMA New Artist Showcase to include bringing all selected finalists for the year to Toronto for Music Industry Discovery Week. During this intensive week, the finalists learn, in-depth, about the music business and artist development through industry-led information sessions and seminars, culminating with a private, industry-only showcase. Each finalist is also paired with an established Canadian country artist for a mentorship opportunity, in addition to performing at the CCMA Discovery Showcase, an official Country Music Week event.
Mandate: The CCMA Discovery Program was created to support Canadian country music artists endeavoring to reach their full potential in the music industry by providing unparalleled educational, mentorship, networking and exposure opportunities on a national scale.
Submission deadline is Friday, January 22, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. ET.
