Unsigned Only Music Competition

Unsigned Only is a unique music competition designed for solo artists, bands, and singers all over the world who are not signed to a major label record company or any of its affiliates, subsidiaries, or imprints.

The goal of Unsigned Only is to find an outstanding, talented performer: a band, singer, or solo artist… a newcomer or veteran… raw or polished – the “gem” that needs to be discovered. Unsigned Only is looking for the total package.

For the first time ever, a music competition offers the Grand Prize winner the unprecedented opportunity to be mentored by a group of record company presidents, A&R reps, and more.
