Calling Vancouver musicians for the Converse Rubber Tracks program

Dec 19 2017, 11:46 pm

Converse announced the global launch of a new Converse Rubber Tracks program that opens the doors to some of the world’s greatest recording studios in music history.

For ten consecutive days, Converse Rubber Tracks will activate across eight different countries in four continents, offering aspiring musicians the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to record original music at 12 landmark studios, including The Warehouse Studio in Vancouver at no cost.

Global registration began Tuesday, May 26 and runs through Wednesday, June 24, featuring an online submission process that requires applicants to rank their top three studio preferences, and encourages all to enter a brief artist biography or description via a video or written application.

The deadline approaches so Vancouver artists apply now.

If selected, chosen artists will be notified in early July. Following a thorough planning session with studio producers, artists chosen will be taken to one of their studios of choice in September this year, with most travel accommodations arranged and select expenses covered by Converse.

Emerging artists, bands, and musicians of all ages and genres across the globe can register for the rare opportunity to record at the following participating studios:

  • Abbey Road Studios in London, England
  • Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, California
  • Hansa Tonstudio in Berlin, Germany
  • Tuff Gong in Kingston, Jamaica
  • Greenhouse Studios in Reykjavik, Iceland
