STRIKE A CHORD contest to fight homelessness

A great idea, and a chance to get your band out there more.

‘STRIKE A CHORD’ contest offers bands and musicians an opportunity to compete for cash, prizes and recognition by coming up with the accompanying music to the provided lyrics. Musicians are being encouraged to get involved and help fight homelessness.

Choose your favorite song lyrics, and create the accompanying music with your musical talent.

READ MORE @ embraced by ‘Fit For Rivals’ for album funding

I just saw that local band ‘Fit For Rivals’ started a Kickstarter page to help fund the production for their next album. While I am new to their music, I can say they sound good and that it’s awesome they took the web to keep it alive.

‘SUNBEARS!’ as you may know did and overreached their pledged goal of $8,000 with $9,555. I would love this idea to be applied to other local bands or projects that maybe aren’t even well known. Embrace what resources you can!

If you wanted to help back the album you have about a month to do so in this way.
