It’s a unique experience to travel and to work with top of the line producers, songwriters and executives. People you normally don’t have access to. Great opportunity to travel to the other side of the world, to experience other cultures, vibes and music. After the recording process, you then get to perform in front of all the Movers & Shakers, during the New Skool Rules music Conference in the Netherlands. I’ve been involved with New Skool Rules for 3 years and it’s had a great impact on my music endeavors.

There is no better way to spot talent, then to do these international Exchange auditions. We audition in 8 locations to find the BEST OF THE BEST.

Another artist got signed to a grammy award nominated producer who was involved in the project. The winners will have CRAZY opportunities to SHOWCASE themselves.
