HONEY JAM CELEBRATES 15 YEARS – Nationwide call is on NOW!!

May 12, 2010

Phemphat Productions is an organization I’ve been involved with since it launched in 1995.  Whether you’re an up and coming artist, or you want to get some real behind-the-scenes experience of running a live show, I’d definitely recommend auditioning or volunteering for Honey Jam. Widely respected ladies from across the country, including the likes of Jully Black, Motion, Eternia, Tara Chase, Nelly Furtado, Kellylee Evans and many, many more all performed on the HJ stage early in their career.

Toronto –  Honey Jam, produced by PhemPhat Entertainment Group, is the longest running all-female talent showcase in Canada and the search is on for this year’s line up of undiscovered talent! 

While the live auditions are in Toronto, THIS IS A NATIONAL SEARCH.  Artists unable to make the audition on Sunday June 13 at The Mod Club @ 722 College Street, can email a link to one of their live performances, even if it’s in their basement!  All of the details are on www.honeyjam.com
Please note, there is no charge to audition, but audition spectators will be charged $5 at the door.
Judges include vocal coach Elaine Overholt who worked with actors in the Oscar award-winning film Chicago. The panel will also include reps from A&R departments, radio, music media, artist funding bodies, producers, managers and artists.

Honey Jam, which celebrates their 15th anniversary this year, continuously delivers one of the summer’s hottest shows featuring electrifying live performances.  Whether hip hop, R&B, rock, pop, jazz, soul, country, classical, dancehall – talented female vocalists representing all musical genres can take part.
Artists chosen to perform at this year’s showcase, which will take place on Sunday, August 15 will be announced at the media launch in July.   They will have the opportunity to attend a free artist workshop sponsored by PhemPhat and the Harris Institute for the Arts to give them some insight into the industry in keeping with PhemPhat’s mandate to educate and mentor, as well as give exposure to up and coming female artists. 

To help fund the show and workshop, a fundraising raffle will be held over the summer.  Tickets are $20 and prizes include a 1 week hotel stay at Amaryllis Beach Resort in Barbados.
