A New Music Cultivator and New Indie Artist Launchpad – Grow Music Project

Grow Music Project microphoneThe GROW MUSIC PROJECT was conceived by Hollywood songwriter/composer/producer CHRISTOPHER TYNG [“Futurama”, “Suits,” “The OC”] to be a new music “cultivator” and artist “launchpad” for uniquely talented independent artists and bands. Our mission is to recognize and support emerging, career-focused artists by giving them the opportunity to have their most promising song professionally produced, recorded, and mixed in our world-class studio, entirely for free and with no strings attached. These artists will also be showcased on the Grow Music Project website, a hub established to foster artists’ musical connections, opportunities for exposure and career growth.


Independent artists and bands need help now more than ever. Few places are left in the music industry that are still able to support and foster the talent of budding artists. The Grow Music Project endeavors to fill that void, to open the doors of our studio to up and coming artists and bands and give them a place to learn, develop and hone their craft. The GMP community will support their creative process, and strive to give their music the wider audience that it deserves.


CHRISTOPHER TYNG is a songwriter, composer and producer who has worked with a wide variety of successful artists, and has written music and songs for popular movies and television series in Hollywood over the past 20 years. Through his experience writing, recording, and producing everything from large live orchestras to punk-rock, reggae, folk, neo-soul to electronica and everything in between, Tyng has honed a unique sensibility and a wide palette of sonic techniques, with which to help new artists create and refine their songs and musical identity.


Selected artists will be invited to work with Tyng and his team for a three-day period at Star Hill Studio, his private recording facility and artistic oasis hidden in the countryside near Santa Barbara, California. At the completion of their stay, each artist will end up with full ownership and control of their finished song master, to use in whatever manner suits them best; with no producer points assigned or mechanical rights or publishing rights given away, nor any other ongoing financial obligation of any kind by the artist required.


Artists can submit themselves for consideration through an online submission form at Submissions will open on Feb. 1, 2012. Artist selections and invitations will be announced on a rolling basis throughout 2012, with a goal of twenty-five total artists announced in this inaugural year.
