The Nimbus School of Recording Arts is offering an opportunity for artists/bands to receive free studio time to complete a commercially releasable EP length recording. The sessions will be produced by Garth Richardson (Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Melvins, etc) and engineered and mixed with the assistance of Nimbus instructors and students in their world-class studios, located in Vancouver, BC. Four Sonicbids artists/bands will be selected by Nimbus Business students to perform as a finalist at a showcase event and industry meet and greet on Friday, January 4, 2013, in Vancouver at The Media Club.

The judging to see who will win the recording prize will be done by Students enrolled in the Music Production program at Nimbus, with the assistance of Garth Richardson and fellow instructors. One winning artist/band will be selected from the showcase performers. The winning artist(s) will receive complimentary recording time at Nimbus for a minimum of three songs. At the studentsÂ’ discretion, the artist may receive additional recording time.

Also at the studentsÂ’ discretion, more than one showcasing artist may be selected to receive a similar recording package. Of the 16 artists that have appeared at the last four showcases, 8 have been awarded free studio time!

Selected artists will be notified by November 30, 2012 and need to be available to play the January 4th, 2013 Showcase and travel there at their own expense. They also must be available at the recording times offered if they win the final recording prize. In addition to consideration for the January 4th showcase event, all submissions will be reviewed for future recording projects by Nimbus staff and students.
