The Coffee Music Project is a music competition showcasing the creativity and talents of emerging musicians while engaging a deep spirit of community among those who share a passion for music and coffee culture.  One hundred percent of the profits support Project Waterfall in partnership with charity: water, bringing clean water and sanitation to coffee growing communities. After the successful launch of The Coffee Music Project in London 2015, the initiative will be brought to New York City.

"The Coffee Music Project is an excellent opportunity for emerging artists to showcase their musical talents while supporting a great cause. We are very pleased with the success of The Coffee Music Project launch in London this year, and we are looking forward to another incredible project in New York City," states Jeffrey Young, Founder of The Coffee Music Project.

From the qualifying rounds, eight contestants will be selected to go through to the finals, which will take place at the prestigious Webster Hall on Sept. 23.
