The Human Levee Music Project is a Song Competition for amateur and professional songwriters who are veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces (active-duty and active-drill status members are ineligible to enter).

The goal of the Music Project is to bring songwriters and New Orleans musicians together to create an edgy, potent, and relevant music Compilation. This is a not-for-profit effort intended to benefit grassroots organizations in New Orleans which are actively engaged in helping citizens there recover from the effects of Hurricane Katrina.

The Musical Genre and Subject Matter of each song is open. Entrants may submit up to five (5) songs each. Each song should be approximately three (3) minutes in length not to exceed five (5) minutes. All song entries must be 100% original material, no sampling will be allowed. Winning songs will be chosen by a panel of music business professionals, and each song submission will be heard in its entirety. Songs are judged on originality, lyrics, melody, and composition. The quality of performance and production will not be a consideration. Selected artists will have their song recorded by a New Orleans based musician with intent to create a marketable compilation to benefit the recovery from the effects of Hurricane Katrina.
