How it Works

Birdsong: David Martin New Music Foundation, will select three unpublished musicians per year, based on lyrics and YouTube video presentation: to be awarded financing towards music production studio, professional producing and mastering your chosen songs, which will then be released on our website.

  • All awarded candidates will retain copyright to their songs and will be registered with SOCAN.
  • It will be up to the performer/composer if they want to donate 25% or more of royalties to the Birdsong Foundation to help with more scholarships.
