Open Call Audition Guidelines

Please prepare two (2) songs for your open call audition. You may not perform both, but have them ready.

Only A CAPPELLA is allowed at the open call auditions.

NO background tracks, NO accompaniment, NO instruments.

The only thing we want to hear is YOUR VOICE. To be clear, you CANNOT play your guitar.

Songs can be by any artist and from any genre (pop, rock, R&B, hip-hop, alternative, latin, country, blues, indie).

Family, friends, managers, vocal instructors, etc. will NOT be allowed at the audition.

If you are under 18 or are otherwise a minor in your home state, one (1) parent or guardian will be allowed with you at the audition.

If you require special accommodations due to a disability or other need, please contact our casting team prior to your audition.

We are judging you on your VOICE. Come dressed in a style that represents you as an artist. Do NOT come in "chicken costumes." We are looking for serious artists ONLY.

The coaches will NOT be at the open call auditions.
