Musicians and creatives have been shining the light on community spirit in recent weeks and months. There has been an explosion of new creative material and online collaboration.

To support this creative movement, HARMAN and SBTV have joined forces to provide an exciting opportunity for artists to collaborate internationally. The prize for one talented vocalist and producer is to win a home studio setup worth £7,500 from HARMAN’s award-winning AKG, JBL, Lexicon, and Soundcraft brands!
We’re calling on producers and vocalists to get involved and participate in the #StayHomeStudio challenge!
Submit your music on social media to work with other pros, get your music heard, and win a top-of-the-line studio prize!
How it works
Starting on 8th May, producers and vocalists will have 2 weeks to submit their musical creation on social media. The deadline to submit your entry is midnight on Friday, 22nd May.
A panel of judges from HARMAN and SBTV will select 1 winning producer and 1 winning vocalist. Those winners will be announced on Monday, 25th May.
The winning producer and vocalist will not only receive a top-of-the-range home studio from HARMAN, they will also work together from their respective home studios to produce a 3-track E.P, filming the process as they go. The “making of” video will be released between Monday, 25th May and Thursday, 4th June. The final tracks will be released on Friday, 5th June and distributed via SBTV onto digital streaming platforms.
HARMAN, which owns several award-winning brands including AKG, JBL, Soundcraft and Lexicon, will provide the winners with the following products, allowing the producer and vocalist to enhance their home studio with professional-grade equipment:
