Pop Goes the Easel

Think you can out rock Ronson, mix and mash up better than Annie Mac, or cause Tinie Tempah to Pass Out? If so, we want to hear from you right now!

At Crown Paints we’re passionate about creativity and we know the country harbours so much untapped potential; you’re a talented bunch and now we want to hear what your creativity actually sounds like.

We’re launching a major new competition to find the next big musical thing: a nationwide search that will offer one undiscovered artist a once in a lifetime chance to provide the soundtrack for Crown’s new ‘it’s not just paint, it’s personal’ TV ad.

Working with top music blog we’ll be unearthing the hottest new sounds from the music world to find someone brilliant to work with – earning them the type of national exposure money can’t buy.

So here’s the deal – we get a great new sound for our TV ad and you get the chance to show the world what you can really do. Bands, solo artists, producers and DJs can all apply for their chance to provide their very own original music to enhance our innovative ‘it’s not just paint, it’s personal’ TV campaign.

We want a track that’s personal to you and one that reflects Crown Paint’s unique approach – something that’s individual, energetic and packed with personality and feeling. The winner will go on to enjoy an all-expenses-paid session to record your song at Salford’s prestigious Blueprint Studios – home to artists including Elbow, Gorillaz and Mark Ronson – as well as a digital release on iTunes to coincide with the TV ad’s launch.

Finalists will be introduced to some of the music industry’s most sought after experts too – including legendary ‘bandmaker’ James Endeacott – the man who signed The Strokes and The Libertines.

So if you’re looking for national exposure, want to stamp your mark on the musical landscape, and fancy a session in a top recording studio – this could just be your first real break and the gig you’ve been waiting for.

Taking part is simple; all we require is your track (in MP3 format), your email address and some background about you as an artist, which can be emailed to Alternatively, you can upload your track and details to our Sound Cloud here

The competition closes on 27th November 2010. For full terms and conditions please visit
