Announcing the New York City 2016 Contestants!

The Coffee Music Project is proud to announce the contestants who have made it through to the live preliminary rounds which will take place on the September 11, 12 and 13, 2016 at Pianos NYC.
This high profile singer-songwriter competition aims to showcase the creativity and talent of emerging musicians while engaging a deep spirit of community among those who share a passion for great music and coffee culture.
The Coffee Music Project has returned for it’s second year in New York City and we were overwhelmed with the hundreds of applications we received from both New York and across the USA.  With New York being renowned for its incredible live music scene and buzzing coffee culture, it was no surprise that the standard of applicants were incredibly high, and choosing the top artists going through to the live preliminary rounds was no easy feat.
The live preliminary rounds are set to be an amazing three nights, featuring some of the best emerging artists competing to win the Coffee Music Project NYC and go home with a prize value of over $5,000.
All profits from the live show will directly support Project Waterfall, bringing clean water and sanitation to coffee growing communities in partnership with charity: water.
Limited tickets are available for all three nights and are set to sell out fast.
We look forward to seeing you there, supporting the artists and this fantastic cause!
