Sea Level Singer/Songwriter Emerging Artist Semi-Finalists Announced 

It was a tough job, but our group of twelve judges were up to the task of judging entries from dozens of qualified artists and picking the ten top semi-finalists, last Saturday night in Hampton.

"This is the best talent that we've ever seen," said  Drew Landman, event chair. "The bar is being set higher every year, and our judges had a difficult job choosing from a formidable pool of talent."

Radio personalities Hunter Hughes (Hunter at Sunrise) and Paul Shugrue (Out of the Box), along with Stephanie Lyon of More Music Group will judge the semi-finalist's Showcase.  Duncan and Danielle of DnD Music will perform and emcee; Paul Norfleet, 2010 Sea Level Emerging Artist winner, will open the Showcase.

We want to recognize and thank all entrants, and encourage them in their chosen art.  The Sea Level Festival, with its workshops, busking and live music opportunities, is a place to sing your own tune, jam, be inspired by great performances and learn from other artists.
