THE search is on for KZN’s next musical genius as Jack Daniel’s Music Scouts open their fifth annual competition this month.

“Started in 2013, Jack Daniel’s Music Scouts was created to give a valuable platform to fresh, unsigned musicians and DJs across the country,” said Jack spokesperson Linda Mbuso.

He said the search has grown over the years and up-and-coming artists from KZN have proved to be showstoppers.

“KwaZulu-Natal is fast becoming a creative hub, spawning musical kings and queens along the coast and evolving brand-new genres in the process. Selected by Jack Daniel’s to perform on the Jack Daniel’s SoundCity stage at Vodacom Durban July last year, Breeze, DJ Wobbly and Nelz are making waves with their stellar skills,” said Mbuso.

Upon selection the scouts collaborate and share the stage with music mentors such as Khuli Chana, DJ Ganyani, Spikiri, DJ Speedsta and T-Bo Touch. “This is a great opportunity for unsigned talent to perform onstage in front of thousands,” said Mbuso.

The competition is open to solo artists, deejays, producers and band members.
