90.3 The Rock is proud to sponsor Sound Off, a live, local music competition that creates opportunity and community in the Knoxville music scene!

The Sound Off is a showcase and competition for all local musicians looking to take their musical careers to the next level. Over six months time, 25 artists will compete for a developmental prize package. The Square Room is taking applications from now until Wednesday, August 24. All applicants will be narrowed down to the top 25 and these 25 bands/musicians will each be assigned a date to perform. Each first Wednesday of the month, beginning Wednesday, October 5 five artists will be showcased. Each artist will perform 2 original songs and 1 cover song. The cover song must be from the tribute artist chosen by the Square Room.

Artists will be notified of the tribute artist 2 weeks before their showcase at the Square Room.
