Music P.E.I. has launched two programs for 2020-21, the Golden Ticket and Takin Care of Business, each designed to give a significant boost to the development of an artist’s career. 

Both programs are managed and delivered by John MacPhee of Paper Lions. Music P.E.I. will accept submissions for both until Sept. 25 from residents of Prince Edward Island only. Before applying, review all of the program guidelines. For additional information, contact program manager Steve Love

The Golden Ticket is designed to assist artists to develop or improve their profile and learn best practises when releasing new material. It will take an artist with a new and previously unreleased song through the process of recording and releasing a single with the goal of developing the artist's profile, receive some radio play, create new revenue and create a template for the artist to use in the future. It also provides participants with product development for their art and business practises. 

Takin Care of Business, which started in 2016, focuses on developing the right foundational business practises, creating an online portal for all the material required when registering with performance rights organizations, licensing songs for film and TV and cataloguing material. Six participants will be accepted
