Sound Off!

The Northwest’s premier 21 and under battle of the bands.

An annual event since 2001, EMP’s Sound Off! supports the all-ages scene by giving artists an opportunity to showcase original music, launch their music careers, and connect with the larger artistic community.

Now in its 13th year, Sound Off! has paved the way for some amazing bands and artists including The Lonely Forest, Dyme Def, Sol, Kithkin, Schoolyard Heroes, Tomten, and Brite Futures.

All participants are 21 or under and residents of Washington, Oregon, British Columbia, or Idaho. Sound Off! participants make off with a slew of awesome prizes such as recording time, gear, radio airplay, high profile performances and media attention.

Call for Entries opens July 25
