2021 Jim Beam® Virtual National Talent Search

My Submissions

Canadian Music Week (CMW) is pleased to produce the Jim Beam® National Talent Search Tour which will take place virtually July 21 – June 10, 2021. Each of the resulting regional webisodes will be streamed via Indies.ca.

CMW and the Jim Beam® Virtual Talent Search Tour will provide 18 of Canada’s best new bands with their own virtual stage, ownership of their own recordings, and starring roles in this musical event that has rewritten the way homegrown independent talent is discovered. Each episode will focus on one Province and feature  performances from three local bands, as well as feedback commentary from three Canadian Industry Mentors.
