Want to help find Canada’s best new musical act? Vote now on who should win Searchlight!
CBC Music and CBC Radio One are looking for Canada's best new artist, and we want your help. Searchlight is a competition that connects artists with fans in their community and across the country. Judges are now deciding which act should, and they want your input. You can vote for one act per day, to help decide which acts make it to the national finals. The judges will consider the popular vote while making their decision. In the event the judges can't come to a consensus, the vote will serve as a tie-breaker.
It's all leading to a grand prize, including $20,000 worth of music equipment from Yamaha Canada Music, a professional recording with CBC Music, and a spot on the bill with Tegan and Sara, and Spoon at the CBCMusic.ca Festival in Vancouver.
Vote now, and come back to explore more music and vote for your favourites every day! Voting makes you eligible for your own prizes from Yamaha Canada Music.
