Voting is officially open for the 2015 CBC Searchlight competition. For those who don’t know what that is, artists from all across the country submit their song to be voted on and to hopefully win the grand prize of a cash prize, a spot on the CBC Music Festival lineup and more. You can vote for up to 10 acts a day meaning you can support multiple acts across the country. The first round of voting is open until April 13th and 2:59 PM E.T. The next round of finalists will be announced the next afternoon (14th) online and on the radio. Last year we picked our favorite acts from across the country but there are just so many that this year we can’t choose. Let us know who your support is going towards!

I’m Tara and I’m a graphic designer from Newfoundland. I am very fortunate to live in a city where there is a ton of amazing musicians. I’ve grown very fond of the local music scene in St. John’s and some of my favorite bands are ones I’ve met through going to local shows.
