Launched in 2009, the project has assisted in the development of over 120 BC artists with education, marketing, and of course, funding. The top 3 artists from every year have collectively taken home over 1.6 million dollars to spend on their development, with millions more being spent within the BC music industry.
The PEAK Performance Project will continue in Alberta thanks to 95.3 The PEAK in Calgary. The Alberta project will be announcing the winner at it’s finale this Saturday, November 21st at Flames Central, with performances by the top 3 artists Leeroy Stagger, The Royal Foundry, and Transit.
Also, now available for FREE download are the 12 songs from the Top 12 Alberta and BC artists.

All 12 songs were recorded in 5 pop-up studios built in a day at the RockRidge Canyon Bootcamp by the Nimbus School of Recording and Media and their amazing crew.
