ARTIST SUBMISSION FORM
When will I hear back?
If your application is accepted, you will hear from a Fresh Brewed Sessions team member within a few weeks. Due to the number of applications we receive, this process may take longer. If you don’t hear from a team member, your application was probably not accepted at this time. Certainly, please feel free to resubmit when you have new original music!
HOW DO YOU SELECT WHO PLAYS?
We work hard to specially curate each session’s lineup. Our diverse and knowledgeable team listens through all submitted music to find new singer-songwriters/artists, ensuring that there is no bias amongst submissions. As a result, this helps us find the best new original music and stories possible!
WHAT KIND OF SETUP WILL I NEED?
Our sessions strictly feature original unplugged acoustic music. As a result, we ask that you do not bring amplifiers nor use any pre-recorded backing tracks. Due to the fact that microphones & DI boxes will be provided for all vocal and instrumental needs, we recommend using acoustic instruments & minimal backline. Certainly, if you have any questions, please contact us here. Our Fresh Brewed Sessions team will be happy to answer all your questions!
Do I need to bring an audience?
Yes, even though Fresh Brewed Sessions has its own following, we require each featured artist to guarantee 5 ticket sales. As a result, accepted artists must purchase 5 tickets in advance (at discount) to be held at will-call for their guests. We encourage artists to promote & create awareness of their session– aiding in the growth of our amazing Fresh Brewed Sessions artist & listener Community.
Will I get paid or compensated?
We want you to walk away with something valuable, therefore Fresh Brewed Sessions compensates our featured artists with photography, video & audio services. Our package includes professional photo coverage of your unplugged performance & one song professionally recorded, filmed and mixed. These services are valued at high cost and provided at each session free of charge to the artist (assuming the guaranteed draw is met.)
What happens at a Fresh Brewed Session?
Fresh Brewed Sessions is a unique acoustic and unplugged storytelling concert series held in an intimate venue, such as a Cafe or Brewery. It typically features three talented singer-songwriters/artists each playing 45 minutes of strictly original music. Due to the fact that each lineup is carefully curated to give audiences a diverse session, we request that guests arrive on time for the first act and stay through the entirety of the show. Lastly, we kindly ask that guests refrain from talking or texting during artists’ performances.
