This is a news release from the University of Southern Mississippi

The University of Southern Mississippi’s entertainment industry program is searching for inspired musicians to audition for the South City Records Artist Development Project 2016. This project could lead to the signing of one or more qualified artists with South City Records.

Regional acts with a repertoire of original music in any genre that would benefit from a complete production package should complete the online form at www.usm.edu/MCJ by Friday, Jan. 29 or contact Jon Pluskota, Southern Miss assistant professor and director of the project by emailing him at jonathan.pluskota@usm.edu.

“We would like to start finding great music in this region and help those artists establish themselves in a professional manner while giving real-life experience to the students in the major,” Pluskota said.

Selected bands will receive a band package including a music demo, live music video and promotional materials. Bands will then compete for the chance to be signed with South City Records and receive a full album produced by Golden Eagle Sound and Production.    

Bands selected will work with students in the entertainment industry program at Southern Miss. This project offers bands with little to no promotional materials the opportunity to gain the resources necessary to the band’s promotion and success, and students will have the opportunity to experience the process of signing and promoting a band.

For more information on this artist development project visit www.usm.edu/MCJ and click on the Artist Development Project link.

    Since the EF-3 tornado landed last year, William Carey University has spent the entire year working to rebuild their campus. “The feeling that we couldn't recover was pretty widespread but they didn't know our students, faculty and employees and our determination,” says President Dr. Tommy King. William Carey came from destruction to full restoration. Sophomore Cassidy Monk says, “The lord has just delivered us from such a tragic event..."
