THE RPM CHALLENGE
The RPM (Record Production Month) Challenge is a creative challenge to everyone to record an album of original music in the month of February. Although it's an international challenge, hundreds of Newfoundland & Labrador musicians sign up each year.
It's not a contest. It's for fun.
NL RPM alumni include a large number of now-established, award-winning artists. Kat McLevey, The Domestics, Pilot to Bombardier, Steve Maloney, and Waterfront Fire are just a handful of musicians whose first significant leap into recording music was with the RPM Challenge.
2017 will mark the 10th year of the RPM Challenge in NL. For our ten-year celebrations, we will focus more than ever on helping people overcome the barriers they face to being musically creative.
