Demos from Goldfields/Esperance 

WAM’s excited to put the call out to songwriters and acts of all ages, levels of experience and music genres from the Goldfields/Esperance region, asking them to register their interest by June 14th, 2021 to take part of the next recording program compilation. Selected participants will then start recording in August 2021, with the final tracks released digitally and physically on the Demos from the Goldfields/Esperance compilation in 2022.

The selection criteria WAM follows when selecting acts include:
- Representing artists from across the featured map area in the Goldfields Esperance region.
- Ensuring there is representation across multiple generations. (Under 17, 18-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54 and 55 and over).
- A range of music genres.
- Representing acts ranging from those who are very experienced, through to others, for whom this will be their first professional recording experience.

WAM's ‘Sounds Of’ and ‘Demos From’ programs bring recording studios to regional centres, building a pop-up studio and recording original tracks for a compilation album, to be released on CD and digitally for national radio and music industry consumption. The participants leave the studio with a professionally recorded track that they own the rights to, and can be used completely for their own purposes and financial gains.

- Successful applicants must be residents of the Goldfields Esperance region, or have been for at least 12 months.
- Artists of ALL levels of experience are being sought – from beginners to already experienced artists.
- Applicants cannot have been featured as the main act/artist/songwriter on a previous ‘Sounds of’ or ‘Demos from’ project.
