A Nanaimo musician and his band are nearing the end of a months-long music competition and need votes in an online component of the project.
Chris Arruda of The Lion The Bear The Fox, with Cory Woodward and Ryan McMahon, are one of 20 bands participating in the Peak Performance Project, a competition that teaches independent musicians and bands about the business and creative sides of music with workshops and performance showcases.
The competition comes with a payout of more than $100,000 to the winning band, plus other prizes to further development.
The band recently released its first collection of songs, called We’d Be Good Men and wrapped up a two-week tour of Western Canada.
To vote for The Lion The Bear The Fox, please visit http://peakperformanceproject.com/vote/. Voting ends Friday (Oct. 25), with the top five bands revealed on Nov. 5.
