Each year, the Top 12 is chosen from hundreds of applications, by a thorough process conducted by multiple juries. The Top 12 each receive a Development Award of $5000 upon entry to the program, while taking part in an Artist Development Bootcamp, the Showcase Series, and completing a series of career-enhancing challenges ~ all to determine the winners of $100,953 / $75,000 / $50,000 prizes.
Recorded at the 2017 Project WILD Boot Camp
One of the pillar starting points for any recording artist is writing a great song. This year, we teamed up the artists with the challenge of writing a song to record at boot camp using the theme “GET BACK”. The artists worked with our amazing producers Carly McKillip,Spencer Cheyne, Josh Gwilliam, Russell Broom, Scott Franchuk and Elisa Pangsaeng to come up with 6 original songs. All 6 songs were recorded in pop-up studios built in a day at RockRidge Canyon. This could not be made possible without the help of Nimbus School of Recording and Media (www.nimbusrecording.com) and their amazing crew and iConnectivity (www.iconnectivity.com), an innovative Alberta company who helped power the studios with their Audio4 interfaces.
Nimbus studio assistants: Ricardo Germain, David Ziehr,Carlo Malsegna, Patrick Ocampo, Nathan Chiu, Jesse Dean, Cassandra Bassingthwaite, Kassie Edwards
Nimbus studio manager/engineer: Karl Dicaire.
A special thanks to the house band for their dedication in the studio and onstage: Matty Mckay, Greg Peace, Darcy Phillips , Darrek Anderson, Spencer Cheyne
