Above & Beyond and Guitar Center Want to Change Your Life Forever [VIDEO]
Cover Me is an artist discovery program offering aspiring musicians the chance to take their careers to the next level and is just one of the ways Guitar Center works to support emerging artists. In the first installment last year, Guitar Center helped Zedd to find EDM's next big superstar.
Zedd was so blown away by Seattle native Ty Acord AKA Lophiile's winning remix of "I Want You To Know feat. Selena Gomez" that he released the track on Interscope Records and then went on to ask Lophiile to remix his hit single "Beautiful Now feat. Jon Bellion," which was also released on Interscope Records!
Now, it's Above & Beyond's turn to spot the next dance music luminary and give them a shot at a big break.
"We’re always impressed by the quality of the fan cover versions we get sent, so it’s exciting to have the support of Guitar Center to help us find the next generation of talented musicians." - Above & Beyond
Unsigned artists around the country are invited to submit a cover of Above & Beyond's 2015 smash hit "Blue Sky Action" featuring Alex Vargas for a chance to win some seriously life-altering prizes...
Guitar Center’s Cover Me winner hand-selected by Above & Beyond will receive... *drum roll*...
• Studio time with Above & Beyond in Las Vegas, NV
• A feature article on Beatport.com
• New gear from Pioneer, Roland, Sennheiser, Marq Lighting, QSC and 8DIO
• $10,000 cash
How exactly do you win? Artists will be ranked on social media engagement and fan growth throughout the submission period (April 29th to June 30th), and the top-ranked 100 artists will be reviewed by Above & Beyond themselves, who will then handpick the winner.
"Our focus at Guitar Center has always been to provide aspiring musicians of all genres in music with the tools, the opportunities, and the platforms they need to be successful in their musical journey. Above & Beyond are legends in the electronic space and we’re thrilled to partner with them to find this next great undiscovered talent." - Jake Cheung, Manager, Music Marketing and Artist Relations, Guitar Center
