Albums are selected quarterly from an ocean of submissions and are sold from listening stations hosted by arts-supportive coffee houses. There will be two separate showcases for the Northeast and the Northwest.
The Northeast showcase focuses on the Northeastern United States and Eastern Canada, while the Northwest showcase is centered around the Pacific Northwest. However, both are open to musicians from all regions. Bands and artists may submit to either showcase through this listing.
The Online Showcase: The five featured albums from each showcase will be posted to the Levee Breaking site for the duration of the showcases (from which point they'll be included in the showcase history).
The Physical Showcase: The albums will be distributed to and available for purchase from listening stations hosted by coffee shops around Boston or Seattle, depending on the region of the showcase. At the close of the showcase the author(s) receive 100% of all album sales.
The Showcase Concert: Each quarter, they put on a showcase concert with the featured artists, which is filmed, put onto a DVD and posted on the site. These are free, all-ages concerts.
