For the past five years, Detroit music incubator Assemble Sound has cultivated the talents of artists with a year-long artist residency at its Corktown headquarters.
The program gives musicians who want to turn their passion into a full-time career access to a professional studio, workshops with songwriters, record label executives, audio engineers, and more.
This year, 14 songwriters, producers, and performers working in genres ranging from electronic to R+B and indie to hip-hop will have the opportunity to take their career to the next level.
“We’re looking for a few things [in our applicants],” says Kaylan Waterman, Assemble Sound’s Residency Program Manager.
“Number one, we’re looking for some kind of a proven track record….not as much hobby artists, but those who are really passionate about doing this all the time.”- Kalyan Watermen
