Mike Davidson Recording prides itself in its continued support of New England's talented recording artists. They are offering a new opportunity to help local, passionate and dedicated musicians create a quality recording and take themselves to the next level. This opportunity is open to local artists from the Northeast only (MA, CT, RI, NY, ME, VT). Here's how it works:

Step 1: Artists submit their Work
The MDR Indie Spotlight is a chance for artists to submit a sample of their work to be reviewed by MDR's music staff. Submissions will be evaluated based on musicality, artistry, style and creativity. MDR will be taking new submissions each month for a limited time. Mike Davidson Recording asks that artists only submit to this opportunity if they are an independent band or artist. This means if an artist is signed to a major label, they don't qualify for this opportunity, although bands on indie labels are more than welcome to submit.

Step 2: MDR Staff Music Reviews
Each submission will be carefully reviewed by their music staff. All applicants will receive honest feedback, advice and suggestions regarding their music, performance and industry potential.

Step 3: Finalists Selected
Three finalists will be selected to perform live in the MDR studios as a chance to fully impress upon us their strengths, capacities and concepts. All participating bands will receive a mix of their in-studio performance that day.

Step 4: Best Performing Band Selected

The best performing band will be awarded 6 hours of free studio time with Engineer/Producer Mike Davidson.

Additional Information: If an artist would like to extend their session beyond the 6 hours or schedule more time on another day, they will be more than happy to accommodate you at normal studio rates. All bands will own any recordings, files and copyrights made at MDR. They hope this opportunity not only opens doors for independent artists in the New England music scene, but also exposes more and more people MDR's high quality recordings and studio facility.
