Guitar Center is proud to launch Get Out of the Garage, an artist discovery program offering emerging artists the chance to win a career-altering opportunity with acclaimed producer Dev Hynes. Get Out of the Garage brings together Guitar Center and Converse Rubber Tracks; both renowned for their long-standing passion in supporting musicians and for their unwavering commitment to helping unsigned musicians launch their careers. The new program will offer unsigned artists the chance to attain national recognition, professional mentoring, a state-of-the-art recording session and much more.
Through Get Out of the Garage, one deserving independent artist will get the chance to record an EP at Converse Rubber Tracks in Brooklyn collaborating with writer and producer Dev Hynes, known for his work as Blood Orange. The winning band will also take the stage in Austin at The FADER FORT presented by Converse in 2014, and be outfitted with new gear from Fender, Gretsch and others as well as receive digital distribution through Tunecore and be featured on the At: Guitar Center with Nic Harcourt podcast series. The FADER FORT Presented by Converse is the ultimate go-to location in Austin for fans to discover new music. A four-day event, The FADER FORT has established itself as a primary stomping ground for many then-unknowns such as Kendrick Lamar, Yelawolf, M.I.A., Florence and the Machine, Odd Future, Feist, Cold War Kids, Kid Cudi, The Black Keys and more.
