Audition 2016 Flyer

Calling all young upcoming Bajan Female Artists!

Do you have what it takes? We’re searching the Nation for the best young female artists, aged 14-25 - representing pop, hip hop, jazz, soca, r&b, gospel, rock, dancehall, blues, alternative, opera, house, dance, country – ALL styles of music!   Those selected will be a part of the  Honey Jam programme which offers performance, educational, developmental and networking opportunities.

SONG CHOICE

You can do an original song or a cover, but if you do a cover you should bring your own style to it.

WORK WITH VOCAL COACH PRIOR TO AUDITION

We strongly suggest that you work with a vocal coach prior to the auditions- Kellie Cadogan, Marisa Lindsay, Melanie Cox, Rhesa Garnes and Indra Rudder are suggestions to contact.  It will be mandatory if chosen that you work with a coach leading up to your performance at the Concert so best to start now to find the best fit for you. 

AUDITION PROCEDURE

In terms of the audition procedure, please audition with the same material you would do at the concert if chosen. You do not need to pre-register prior to the audition date. You will be given a number when you arrive on the day and will audition when that number is called. Each auditionee only has approximately 1 minute to perform.  Judges will rate your performance and those with an average of 8 will be short-listed and then a final selection will be made. 

Only those chosen for the concert will be notified.  If you don't get a call, it could mean that you didn't get high enough scores from the Judges, or it could be that there were several high scorers in your genre and we could only pick one or two. There is a limited number of spots.  Whatever the reason, if you don't get selected we encourage you to still come out and  support the show and try out again in the future.

JUDGES (to be announced)

ARRIVE EARLY

As spots are limited please arrive 1 hour before start time to register.

ADM FEE

There will be a $10 adm fee for all artists, musicians, backup singers and spectators.

WHAT TO BRING

If you’re interested in auditioning for the Honey Jam Programme - first bring your A Game!  This is not Karaoke - it's for artists who are serious about making a career in the music industry.  Come with a 1 page bio which should include your photo, age, address, email, phone numbers, whether or not you have a manager and, if so, his/her contact info, **even if you have a manager never only just give their info – always include your contact info as well** how long you have been performing, places you have performed in the past, and any upcoming gigs along with your website info - fb/twitter/instagram, etc.

Regarding background music you have 3 choices:

  • CD or flashdrive - the track you are using should be the first and ONLY track which should also be labelled with your name. Be sure to pick up from the sound booth before you leave.
  • Musicians - You can have a musician accompany you, but not a full band  i.e. just a guitar or keyboard – you will be responsible for providing any instruments you require for the auditions.

**If chosen for the live show all artists will be backed by musicians**

PROFESSIONAL PHOTO

If chosen we will immediately require a few of high resolution photos of you.  Every artists should have at least 5 good quality professional shots to choose from of different looks so whether or not you get in the show, you should be sure you have great images to present when required – head shots, full body shots, solid backgrounds.
