This past January, fans were glued to their TV screens for the premiere season of the new music series, The Launch. The brainchild of A&R rep and Big Machine Records founder Scott Borchetta, The Launch paired aspiring singers with mentors, who are best described as some of today’s biggest names in music. Each week, two artists were selected from a group of five and got the chance to record their version of an original new song. At the end of each episode, the mentors choose which of the two talented artists would be launched and have their single released around the world!
For six weeks, fans watched as Logan Staats, Elijah Wood x Jamie Fine, The Static Shift, POESY, Jayd Ink and Ethan Young became the first six artists to be launched in the brand new series, with their music topping the charts and often times taking the number one spot away from today’s biggest pop artists. Mentors like Shania Twain, Alessia Cara, Fergie, Boy George, Ryan Tedder, and more helped guide the artists, giving them invaluable advice on recording and performing in front of a live audience.
Now is your chance to be a part of Season 2 of The Launch!
