Live Different is a non-profit organization based out of Hamilton, Ontario, and is seeking bands that would like to participate in their cross-Canada adventure. Live Different is currently one of the most in-demand and popular presentations in Canadian high schools. Live Different has two teams touring full-time across the country, speaking in as many as three hundred schools a year, to thousands of students from St. John's, Newfoundland to VIctoria, British Columbia. Presentations from Live Different have also been requested year after year at dozens of national and provincial student leadership conferences.

Live Different is seeking one band to join each of the two teams as they cross the country giving presentations to various schools. The bands will participate in the Live Different tour for the spring semester from January 13 through June 1, 2013. Bands will be expected to perform nearly every school day during that span.

In order to be considered for this opportunity, artists must have:

  • A positive attitude

  • Ability to interact enthusiastically and professionally with crowd/fans

  • A professional online presence (Website/Facebook/Myspace/Bandcamp)

  • Merchandise

  • Well-produced recordings

  • Lyrical content that does not contradict Live Different's message

Live Different will cover all basic travel and lodging expenses for selected artists as well as supply a tour bus and some audio/video equipment. Artists must provide their own instruments. Selected artists are not compensated for each performance, but are able to sell merchandise throughout the tour and retain 90% of sales.

Live Different's tours are great opportunities for bands to promote themselves in a forum that would not otherwise be available to them. Additionally, each band that participates in the tour has the opportunity to sell their music and merchandise daily to a large audience, without taking on the burden of financing the tour for themselves.
