Start With Something That's True

Mountain Stage Newsong Contest

Mountain Stage Newsong Contest

The Mountain Stage Newsong Contest is one of the premier showcases of talented singer-songwriters across multiple genres of music in North America.  The contest is open to all genres of music, although songs must include a vocal with lyrics to be considered to advance.

This is a performing songwriter competition, not a songwriting competition, and your submission will be judged using that criteria.

NewSong Recordings artists and former contest standouts Chris Velan, Lora-Faye, Amber Rubarth, Arthur Alligood and Diana Jones.
