Administered by Alberta Music and funded through WILD 953 – Calgary’s New Country, Project WILD, is part of a seven year, $4.9 million program, designed to kick-start the international music careers of 3 emerging Alberta artists annually, and give a boost to all Top 12 finalists selected by industry jury. The Jim Pattison Broadcast Group is committed to newly emerging Canadian musical artists through CRTC Canadian Content Development programming.
This is the second year for Project WILD – Country Artist Development. Previous Top 3 winners have been: The Dungarees, Sykamore and Ken Stead.
