Fishman has announced the launch of the “Fishman Singer/Songwriter Competition.”  The Competition, which runs from through October 3, 2011, provides singer/songwriters in the Southeastern United States with the opportunity to showcase their talent and their music. Musicians simply register at the Competition website and create a profile. Fans review profiles and vote for their favorite.

 The fifteen musicians with the most online votes will be invited to compete live in the finals at Wild Bill’s, “America’s Largest Dance Club and Concert Hall,” outside of Atlanta, Georgia, on October 18, 2011. 

Asked about the competition, Chris DeMaria, Fishman’s Director of Marketing & Artist Relations stated, “Since the Fishman SA220 is the perfect PA system for today’s singer/songwriter, we’re excited about the Competition and looking forward to discovering some amazing talent.’”

Fishman has teamed with CompetitionAlley, the premier “white-label” competition platform, to make the Competition happen. David Craver, president of CompetitionAlley, stated, “Fishman is the world-leader in acoustic amplification. We are very pleased that they have chosen our platform for this fantastic music competition.”

Winners will receive valuable music equipment from the following market-leading manufacturers: Fishman, Latin Percussion, Digitech, Electro-Voice, and Toca Percussion.
