3 Saskatchewan Artists to each receive $10,000.00
Rawlco Radio is proud to announce another 3 recipients for Project 10K20 Saskatchewan. Project 10K20 will provide 80 Saskatchewan artists with $10,000 each to record, mix, and master an album. To date, Rawlco has funded $750,000 to the local music community and continues to announce future recipients in 2016.
This fall’s recipients are:
- Autopilot: Saskatoon (Alternative Rock) Autopilot has always been a dedicated touring band which has taken them across the United States and coast to coast in Canada playing a variety of venues from small clubs to major festivals including MoSoFest, Junofest and Canadian Music Week.
- Nick Faye & The Deputies: Regina (Alternative Folk / Rock) A band from the deepest depths of the dusty derelict Canadian Prairie (Regina, SK). The TV show they enjoy comparing their music to is “The Drew Carey Show”
- Brody Siebert: Spiritwood (Country) A sound that is similar to Waylon Jennings and Dierks Bentley, Brody shows a slightly different rock edge that puts a new spin on the country genre while bringing in the classic roots to life.
“With the support of Project 10K20, we have seen success of many of our recipients including Jess Moskaluke receiving a 2015 Juno nomination for “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” and “Country Album of the Year”. As well, Jess received “Female Artist of the Year” in 2014 and 2015 at the Canadian Country Music Awards. Past recipients, Sparky from Saskatoon and Andino Suns from Regina received nominations at this year’s Western Canadian Music Awards. We look forward to reviewing applications in 2016 and continuing to provide funding for Saskatchewan artists.” said Harreson James, 10K20 Saskatchewan Project Director.
It’s important for Canada to hear Saskatchewan’s best artists on the radio and for this not to be hindered by lack of funding. Project 10K20 funding helps provide artists with the money and time to do their best work.
Jess Moskaluke, Juno Nominee, CCMA Winner, 10K20 recipient says, "Here in Saskatchewan, the arts are thriving, and well supported. Rawlco's Project 10K20 program has helped many musicians, myself included, to do things with their career that they may not have had the finances to do. My debut album was funded by this program, and would not have been created had I not had such a fantastic opportunity. Thanks for the incredible leg up!"
Applications are accepted on an on-going basis. Artists interested in applying can download applications at www.rawlco.com/10k20/. If you would like to interview any of the recent recipients, please contact Harreson James at (306) 934-2222 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
