CBC Music’s SEARCHLIGHT 2017 Finale is coming!

CBC Music’s annual contest, Searchlight is coming to an end. After being narrowed down from 1200 entries, we now have our final four: The Wolfe (Prince Albert), WILL (Toronto), The Long War (Vancouver) and Jaryd Stanley (Toronto/ New Brunswick). On Sunday, April 9 at 6:00pm on CBC the four will appear in front of a studio audience where three celebrity judges, Ruth B, Dan Kanter and Javis Church will decided who will take the 2017 Searchlight title!  This is not something you want to miss!

Over the past couple of months, the musical submissions have been narrowed down by public votes and a robust industry panel. The grand prize includes:

  •  A performance slot at CBC Music Festival in Toronto on May 27th
  • An original song commissioned by Canada 150 to be written during a 2 week residency at the Banff Centre with a celebrity mentor
  • A SEARCHLIGHT concert with the other top four finalists on July 2 in Ottawa as part of the National Arts Centre’s concert series
  • Canadian Musician Magazine Career Booster package valued at over $25,000 which includes a studio session and more
