Since 2015 the Song Cover Challenge has been encouraging local musos to take on songs they wouldn’t ordinarily perform. It’s a friendly competition that has birthed some absolute gems and a number of oddities.
The rules are simple, nominate yourself to take part in the challenge and suggest a song for another participant to cover. When the competition starts, your name and one song suggestion are pulled out of a hat, participants are then assigned the challenge of recording that cover and producing an accompanying video.
In the past, rounds of the Song Cover Challenge have been themed – You can check out the past videos here and download the audio via this Bandcamp link. But this year there was no theme and the songs covered by the participants span the musical landscape.
Can I enter?
