Maine Young and Free program introduces winter musical promotion
PORTLAND, Maine (2/7/12)--Young & Free Maine has introduced a special winter promotion through a Sound Off Music Com­petition for Maine musicians ages 18-25.

The competition will be held Feb. 1 to March 5. The contest will be open to individuals, groups or artists, said the Maine Credit Union League (Weekly Update Feb. 3).

"This competition provides a new way for Maine's credit unions to connect with the state's young adults, while giving young musi­cians a unique platform to share their talent," said John Murphy, league president/CEO. "Through Young & Free Maine, and our spokesman Seth Poplaski, we've been able to hear the voice of this generation, so we can bet­ter serve them. This competition is another way we can recognize all that Gen Y in Maine has to offer, while bringing attention to our Young & Free program and driving website traffic."

Sound Off entrants must be between 18-25 years of age--in the case of bands, at least one member must be ages 18-25--and must not be under a recording contract. Entrants will submit an audio or video recording of themselves singing or performing original music to a special page on the Young & Free Maine website.

From March 7-16, the public will vote to choose a winner. The winning band or individual will receive a $1,000 gift certificate to a studio to be used for a recording session of their choice, and the opportunity to perform live at a festival, Aug. 4-9. The winner will be announced on YoungFreeMaine.com March 19.

"Maine has an ex­citing music scene that continues to grow and evolve," said Seth Poplaski, Maine's Young & Free spokesman. "I know that 'Sound Off' will really let these musicians shine, and offers an opportunity that is very unique--with a prize of both stage and studio time."
