Along With Other Music Legends
Alice Cooper, Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale, Bush’s Gavin Rossdale and Bishop Briggs have been chosen as the celebrity judges for a new music competition “No Cover”. Unlike other talent search series like The Voice and American Idol though, this one will focus on unsigned bands and solo artists who will compete using their own original material – hence, the name.
Produced by Hit Parader, it will be recorded at the iconic Troubadour Club and the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood, California. Co-hosted by Sleeping With Sirens singer Kellin Quinn and radio personality Caity Babs while music industry veteran Matt Pinfield will be doing the behind-the-scenes interviews.
Alice Cooper said in a statement, “I can’t wait for No Cover. To me, a band really isn’t a band unless they are writing their own material, and if you know anything about me you know that I have a very high standard for not only the songs but also the performance. I’m looking for the band who has it all — the one who can not only write it and play it, but perform it and make me BELIEVE it.”
Lzzy Hale also shared, “I’m beyond excited to join my friends, peers and fellow rockers as a judge for Hit Parader’s music competition TV show No Cover. I hope that my passion and experience will help to inspire and encourage these young bands to carve out their own path in this world.”
The winner will get a six-figure record contract from Sumerian Records, slots at a Danny Wimmer Presents festival, new Gibson gear, Shelter Music Group management, branding endorsements, and Nightbird Recording Studios studio time, to name a few.
Applications are already open.
