The OurStage Panel Season 2
The OurStage Panel is a one-of-a-kind music industry documentary web series that takes viewers behind the scenes to hear the frank conversations among industry elite as they evaluate the talents of emerging artists. Each webisode - hosted by Z100's Trey Morgan with audience correspondent Carla Marie - features Lee Dannay, Sharon Dastur, Scott Igoe, Bruce Tyler and special guest Gavin DeGraw, reviewing songs by four high-ranking OurStage Artists..
The raw aesthetic of documentary filmmaking serves as the perfect backdrop to spotlight the views and opinions of industry experts who normally prospect new artists quietly behind the scenes. By making this process public for the first time, The OurStage Panel offers all aspiring artists the opportunity to hear how the "Majors" assess new artists and their songs. As one song by each OurStage act is reviewed, both the individual artist and the viewing audience will be afforded insights that can help musicians, singers and songwriters at-large better approach their craft.
Sixteen hopeful artists, featured each week in groups of four, will be in the running to win several game-changing opportunities. At stake: a performance video filmed in NYC by Emmy Award-winning director Mitchell Stuart, $5,000 in cash, a one-on-one mentorship with industry heavyweights and, ultimately, the chance to emerge onto the national stage.
