The organization explains,“The House of Blues Music Forward Foundation harnesses the power of music to connect young people to knowledge, tools and mentors that fuel creativity, build confidence and connect passions to professions. We invest in young musicians by putting them in the spotlight and giving them a chance to shine. It’s a chance for teen musicians to connect with top music industry insiders through interactive workshops, and, showcase their talents in a live concert on the legendary House of Blues stage.”
Open to students aged 13-19, those interested have until January 20th to submit a song, professional photo and complete the online application. Individuals or bands selected will be given the opportunity to participate in a series of 3 hour Industry Sessions at the House of Blues, allowing them to connect with music industry professionals to learn the business, build their band’s identity and fan base, develop stage presence and meet other young professionals from Houston and beyond.
At the end of the program the House of Blues will open its doors for a live showcase, giving each participant the chance to perform in front of friends, family and fans.
