Keeping Music Live! Tall Poppy Records - BANDS/ARTISTS WANTED!!!!

“Tall Poppy Presents..." is a professionally run live showcase platform for acts who are looking to break into the business, already established artists, or artists in development. We are looking for artists and bands NOW!

Having challenges finding great venue to play? Our aim is to help hard-working artists in this shrinking corporate music industry and get them out there to be heard!

We encourage acts to use our facilities and production team as a means of showcasing to larger/major labels. Many artists have connected with managers, publishers and music industry people in the Tall Poppy environment.

It’s the SONG that RULES! Any and all genres will be considered as long as the music is song-inspired. All acts are compensated for their performance based on draw.

This is an excellent opportunity for up-and-coming artists, as well as established acts, to get in front of new faces! In April 2006, we will offer the best four acts the opportunity to play a Tall Poppy Presents... showcase co-sponsored by New Music West!
