LITTLE BIRDY want to share their love of the recording studio by offering to produce a song for a budding unsigned artist!
In conjunction with the good folks at MySpace and Channel [V], LITTLE BIRDY are running a competition on their MySpace page. The winning entry will give an unsigned artist the opportunity to spend a day in a Melbourne studio to record and mix one of their songs. LITTLE BIRDY will sit in the producer’s chair for the session as they did for their forthcoming album CONFETTI which is out May 8.
“Producing our new album ourselves was a very different experience for the band and one we found totally liberating” said drummer Matt Chequer. “We’re looking forward to sharing our love of recording with an artist who may be walking into a studio for the very first time”.
LITTLE BIRDY will be touring throughout May and they plan to head into the studio with the winner at the end of their tour in early June. The band also plan to film the recording session and this footage will be edited to create a video that will premiere on MySpace and Channel [V] in June.
“We know how meaningful it can be to receive a helping hand when you first start making music” said Katy Steele. “We thought one of the best ways we could help a young artist was to organize a recording session for them and we thought well why don’t we make a video for them too!”.
The grand prize includes:
*One full day recording and mixing in a Melbourne studio with Little Birdy
*A video for the winning song edited from footage filmed at the recording session will premiere on MySpace and Channel [V]
*Return airfares from any capital city to Melbourne
*Hotel accommodation for one night
To enter the competition you need to head to the official LITTLE BIRDY MySpace page – http://www.myspace.com/littlebirdy and write in 25 words or less why you want to record your song with LITTLE BIRDY.
You also need to submit your MySpace URL and/or an MP3 sample of the song plus your name, age, address and contact telephone number.
“We know what works for LITTLE BIRDY in the studio having just produced CONFETTI entirely oursleves. It will be a total honour for us to help an artist who is just starting out record their own song.” commented the band’s singer/songwriter/guitarist Katy Steele.
