eTown’s Handmade Songs Series is a program in which high school songwriters are given the opportunity to perform at eTown Hall in front of a live audience. Rather than focusing on performance or other superficial criteria often weighted in musical competitions, the entire program focus is on songwriting.
At least five students are awarded the opportunity to team up with industry professionals to produce their single and a music video in eTown’s state-of-the-art recording studio and production facility. eTown provides renowned producers, sound engineers, videographers, professional musicians, world-class equipment and facilities to ensure the highest quality of production. Students often use their finished work to apply to college-level music programs or begin their career in the arts.
The eTown Handmade Songs program is on hold for 2020.
