• Open Call – Stärker Music Jams 2017



    Calling all local emerging talents to take a step forward with their music creations. Stärker Music Jams 2017, presented by Stärker Music in collaboration with Cross Ratio Entertainment, is open for registration from now till 30th September 2017. All aspiring musicians with originally written songs are welcomed to participate.

    Into its 2nd edition this year, the Stärker Music Jams is a platform initiated along with its flagship event, Stärker Music Carnival to nurture the growing music scene in Singapore. It strives to offer an accessible platform for showcasing passionate individuals and identifying promising music talents.

    Previously known as VOLT: Amplifying Local Talents, the platform has evidently proven itself to be a significant stepping stone to the music career of home-grown talents. After clinching first place at VOLT last year, local pop-R&B quintet Astronauts secured a $6000 sponsorship from Stärker Group to produce their first music video and chart-topping debut single ‘Get Close’. Jasmine Sokko, fast-rising local electronic singer-producer, was also one of the many promising participants of VOLT last year.

    Stärker Music Jams opens up extensive opportunities for aspiring musicians. From introducing their music to key veterans from the music industry and a broader audience, to performing on a highly anticipated stage – these opportunities could possibly be a turning point in their music career.

    Preliminary Round
    Upon online registration, all participants are entitled to attend a free video recording session of their original song(s), as part of their entry submission. Recorded video will be published on Stärker Music’s Facebook page for online voting. Thus, early registration is advantageous as more time is granted to garner support for their participation. Participants may also utilise the recorded video for self-promotional purposes.

    Advancement eligibility to the final round will be accessed by a panel of music industry judges based on participant’s musicality and online entry’s popularity. Only the top 4 outstanding participants will be qualified for the final round.

    Final Round
    The 4 finalists will get to perform live during Stärker Music Carnival 2017 on 4th November 2017, sharing the stage with prominent overseas and local artistes who are part of the carnival’s line-up.

    Live performances put up by the finalists will be evaluated by a panel of music industry judges. An overall winner will be selected and announced on the event day itself.

    The Stärker Music Jams will offer the following prizes to the emerged champion:
    - Music Video shoot fully sponsored by Stärker Music
    - Residency with Stärker Music
    - 1 year Management deal with a record label (Terms & Conditions apply)
