If you are Alberta based and you fancy yourself musically inclined, you have a goal. That goal is to join the ranks of the musicians included in the TransCanada Alberta Music Series for 2012. The deadline to submit your talent is upcoming (Sept. 30th), so don’t sleep on this, just do it – we want to see & hear you!
The event is a 4 day series of shows at the lovely Epcor Centre for the Performing Arts and features local talent showcasing what Alberta has to offer. You can schmooze with industry folks, fans and other musicians – what could be better? Each night almost has a ‘theme’ of sorts and is both interesting and entertaining at the same time. So check your memory banks and if you have not already been in the series and your ID indicates you are from Alberta, then get to the submitting already!
I already have my recommendation and I look forward to seeing Tyler Butler from Edmonton featured predominantly in the showcase (are you listening Epcor crew???). Just kidding, I don’t want to influence anybody at the acceptance committee…but seriously, don’t make me have to make a few visits….again, just kidding…
Listen to a track from Tyler from his wonderful “Winter King” album from earlier this year:
