Your Big Break

Submissions Open for Seventh Annual “Your Big Break” Competition in New York and Long Island

Heading into its seventh year, the Gold Coast Arts Center, Love Revolution Org., and the Rick Eberle Agency are getting ready for another year of searching for the next big thing in music as the "Your Big Break" (YBB) Showcase Series returns in 2019. Submissions are now open through January 6.

There is an OPEN CALL for submissions for all musicians ages 15 to 25 living on Long Island and in all five boroughs, and who do not currently have a recording or publishing contract to submit for the showcase events; interested artists must perform with a band or solo with an acoustic guitar or sing to a backing music track. Though artists are judged in areas from stage presence to overall musicianship, YBB is largely a SINGING COMPETITION. There is NO FEE to submit!
