How do I apply for Music Backers Studio Week? All applications must be submitted by completing an online Music Backers Studio Week application form at www.americanexpress.com.au/musicbackers. Applications received via email, phone or any other method, including those that are incorrect or incomplete, will not be considered.
Step 1: Personal Information
On the Studios page, make sure you read all critical information and key dates, and fill in your personal details.
Step 2: Artist Information
Let us know whether you’re an artist, group or band, and fill in all the required information. Don’t forget to include a link to a demo or sample of your best track - we’ll use this to select our top 50 artists for Music Backers Studio Week. If you have other tracks recorded previously, please also include links to these so that we can see more of your work.
Step 3: Studio Information
Let us know your preference of Studio/s. If you’re flexible, simply select all that apply. Please note: if you select multiple studios, we’re unable to guarantee you’ll have your first choice, but we’ll do our best to accommodate your preference. Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, we recommend selecting a Studio that is in the State or Territory that you currently reside, as we won’t be able to re-allocate your recording day to a different location once it’s been confirmed. Travel does not form part of the prize.
Step 4: Verify your details and submit
Make sure you check over the form to ensure that you’ve included everything and that your details are correct – we’ll need these to contact you should you be awarded a day in the studio.
Be sure you confirm your availability for a studio day and virtual workshop at the bottom of the form by ticking the boxes, and then when you’re ready, hit submit! You’ll receive an on-screen notification that your application was submitted successfully, as well as an email confirmation.
