The Hunt For India’s Best Unsigned Musical Talent Is Back

Posted at February 1st, 2016 | by Supreet.cheema | in

Converse Road To Rubber Tracks is returning to India in  2016 for its second edition. Converse and its India licensee, Future Lifestyle Fashion Ltd. made this announcement on 29th January. The second season of  the Road to Converse Rubber Tracks in India will be heading to five different cities – Guwahati, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Pune and Delhi – in the hunt for the most talented unsigned local band/artist from any genre who will be given the opportunity to record at the Converse Rubber Tracks studio in Brooklyn, New York.

No matter if you are in a band or a solo artist, a electronic or metal head, if you are seeking out for an opportunity of more visibility, this is your best shot. From January 29 until February 10, music artists are invited to apply to register here.

What next? Once the artist/band has registered, they show up as contestants on the page and users/fans can then check out their profiles and decide who they want to vote for. The voting period will last for a three to four weeks. Five bands with the most votes in each city will then be shortlisted for the Regional Round showcase. These five bands in each city will get a chance to play at the showcase with some of the biggest bands in the country including Blackstratblues, Thermal and A Quarter, and Superfuzz. Road to Converse Rubber Tracks panel will then select a favourite in each city who will then head to Mumbai for a final showdown where the winner will be declared. The winning band gets an all-expenses paid trip to Brooklyn, New York where they get to record in the cool as Everest Converse Rubber Tracks studio.

The F16s from Chennai were the winners of last year’s search, and more recently Prateek Kuhad from Delhi was the Indian emerging artist selected to record as part of the Converse Rubber Tracks Global Studios program. 

Since its Brooklyn opening in July 2011, Converse Rubber Tracks has provided the incredible opportunity for artists to record in a state-of-the-art studio at no cost.  Converse Rubber Tracks supports artistic expression by allowing musicians across all genres an opportunity to record for free and retain all the rights to their music. In the last three years, Converse has brought the Converse Rubber Tracks pop-up studio from Brooklyn to great music cities such as Toronto, Austin, Montreal, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Paris, Beijing and Mexico City.
