WHAT IS UNSIGNED ONLY?
The goal of Unsigned Only is to find an outstanding, talented performer: a band, singer, or solo artist…a newcomer or veteran…raw or polished – the “gem” that needs to be discovered. Since launching seven years ago, four Grand Prize artists have been signed to major label record deals, making Unsigned Only a leading source for transitioning new talent into major label record deals.
However, getting a record deal isn’t the only success Unsigned Only artists have achieved. Many entrants have also secured licensing deals, publishing deals, better gigs, and more recognition after winning the competition. This could be your chance.
