Peak Performance Project: DANNY ECHO


Danny Echo showLocal band Danny Echo has been selected as one of 20 finalists in the PEAK Performance Project. Chosen from a pool of 450 applicants, Danny Echo underwent a rigorous selection process and was judged on several factors: musicianship, vocal performance, songwriting ability, live performance, artist benefit description, and suitability for AAA radio format. Their debut album Danny Echo only foreshadowed this musical leap, and Backstage Vancouver is proud to support Danny Echo through this process. Check out their upcoming shows and the Backstage Vancouver Calendar to see their energetic live performances.

PEAK Performance Project

The PEAK Performance Project is a seven-year, $5.29 million contest open to all musicians in British Columbia. The project was created by 100.5 The PEAK and Music BC to develop BC based emerging artists.

Every year, twenty finalists from BC will receive an intensive, one week training program in the music business, live performance, songwriting, marketing and promotion. Artists will benefit from mentorships from some of the music industry’s top professionals and performers. All of these artists will have the chance to perform live in Vancouver on the PEAK Performance Stage.

Of these twenty artists, five will receive professional demos to be released under the project. From these, the top three will be crowned as the PEAK Performers of the year and will share $275,000 in cash for career development.

First place receives $150,000 | Second place receives $75,000 | Third place receives $50,000
