Giving a platform to Canadian artists and music creators and their original music.

The Shot has brought together some of the most talented undiscovered musical talent from across Canada to be introduced to the music industry.

The Shot has discovered and supported artists that have gone on to gain more than 800,000 streams on Spotify, performances at Boots and Hearts, NXNE, Ottawa Bluesfest, opening act slots for Jim Cuddy, Tyler Shaw, Buffy Saint-Marie, and Our Lady Peace, and radio and television appearances including season 2 of CTV’s The Launch.

In its brand new web series format, The Shot is allowing independent singer-songwriters to experience what it would be like to audition for a record label. Over the course of several months, artists will workshop, collaborate on and perform an original song with the process culminating with a final showcase where the winner will receive the opportunity to be signed a major management deal.
