Teenage songwriters looking for a chance to showcase their talents will have a chance to reach a wider audience as the Shaw TV show eveRIAthing is hosting a songwriting competition.

The Star Experience will include eight judges, including Maple Ridge’s Peter Tam from the  E Chamber Orchestra, looking to discover budding new talent.

Local musicians can audition on May 6, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., at Kanaka Creek Coffee, located at 101 – 24155 102nd Ave.

“This is not just an ordinary competition,” said organizer Jackie Diy. “The Star Experience is a platform for creative teens to get their music heard by industry professionals right from day one.”

Winners will be announced at the eveRIAthing Wall of Stars awards night on July 25 at the Columbia in New Westminster.

Songwriters unable to attend the two local sessions can submit online entries by May 31 at www.everiathing.com/#! the-star-experience/c238d.

“It will be lovely to have a lot of our local teens take advantage of this opportunity,” said Diy.
