Entering its fourth season on Public Television, Road Trip Production's (RTP) Roadtrip Nation showcases the summer journeys of college-age individuals taking a roadtrip across America seeking words of wisdom from individuals who have defined their own lives. Past roadtrip participants have interviewed everyone from the CEO of Starbucks to Manny the Lobsterman in Maine.

Music has always played a key role in the films of RTP and this year will be no exception. RTP is committed to supporting independent artists by exposing their music to wider audiences and showcasing it on the RTP website (http://roadtripnation.com/music). We DO NOT use major label music! Artists you may have heard of that have been featured on our show (*before they were famous): Caribou, Jack Johnson, Sufjan Stevens, Xavier Rudd, White Buffalo and many many more. Last year, we used about 20 Sonicbids artists in the show - and this year we have a minimum of 5 slots reserved for Sonicbids members.

If chosen, you will be financially compensated for airplay on PBS through your Performing Rights Organization of choice (ASCAP, BMI, etc) and paid a royalty on each DVD sold. Of course, the exposure this opportunity provides is also invaluable as you will become a part of the extended family of Roadtrip Nation and we will always be in touch about opportunities we feel you'll benefit from.

The show will air in the fall of 2006, starting September 1, and DVD release will follow.

We welcome all genres of music but we're looking for independent music that follows the same principles of our subjects, music that follows its own road. No explicit lyrics please.
