The No Label Needed Contest & Series is a collaboration between Metal Insider and Scion to give one unsigned artist an entire DIY music industry education and launch a release without the help of a label. We’ll be posting features and updates on the contest & series periodically on Metal Insider. Find out more about No Label Needed here.
As announced yesterday, we have our 20 finalists for the No Label Needed Contest & Series. Now it’s time to start formally introducing them.
