We here at Quick Stop Entertainment are true lovers of music, in all its forms. We’re also quite keen on the spirit of competition, and of spurring creativity through said competition.
To that end, we launched a unique form of creative combat here at the Stop.
In this age of manufactured and painfully earnest talent contests, we’ve decided to instead shine a light on the quirky, quixotic underworld of musicians that don’t get nearly the attention they deserve.
Ah, but I did mention that there was a competition involved…
From now until 11:59pm EST on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7th, we’ll be accepting sign-ups from any and all musicians across this here internet. We have 25 slots open - All you have to do is be one of the first 25 to apply via the form below, and you’re in. THE LIST OF CHALLENGERS AND THE FIRST TASK WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 9th, 2009.
Once those participants have been announced, the showdown will commence.
Like a songwriting version of Iron Chef, the competitors will be presented with a very specific songwriting challenge. They’ll be given one week to complete their songs - however they see fit, within the parameters set forth - after which time the entries will be uploaded to Quick Stop to be voted on by you, the audience.
Oh, and what do we call this competition?
MASTERS OF SONG FU
Let us not forget the very special Masters of MASTERS OF SONG FU - artists like Jonathan Coulton, Paul & Storm, Neil Innes, Doc Hammer, & The RiffTones. Think of them as the iron chefs of Song Fu - one of which will be revealed as your ultimate challenger.
And if you triumph, not only will you win remarkable (and potentially off-putting) bragging rights and a clutch of fantastic mystery prizes, you will also become the proud owner of the magnificent, one-of-a-kind MASTER OF SONG FU TROPHY.
Remember, you must be able to realize a song both lyrically and musically. This competition is open to both singer/songwriters and bands - but since space is limited, only enter if you truly accept the challenge. As stated above, we’ll be accepting the first 25 valid applications we receive.
Are you ready to bring your Fu? If so, fill out the form below:
