It was a close race, but ultimately the winner of the Reach for the Beach challenge is Destin, Florida’s Continuum. Congratulations to Continuum and the other unsigned artists that made it to the top six.
92ZEW’s Reach for the Beach challenge is a great opportunity for unsigned artists in the Southeast to not only play Hangout Festival, but to network and meet folks that can take them to the next level.
Out of more than 70 submissions, the top six artists were: Paw Paw’s Medicine Cabinet (Mobile), Looksy (Tuscaloosa), Jacob Needham & the Blue Trees (Birmingham), Hotel Oscar (Destin), This Side of 49 (Baldwin County, AL) and Continuum.
Artists were judged on their recorded and live presentations, as well as fan activity, other submitted materials and their readiness for the next level.
Check out Continuum’s videos & bio below.
92ZEW would like to thank all the talented artists who submitted packages for the challenge.
Continuum will play Sunday at Noon on the Hangout (main) stage.
Following up on the independent release of their debut effort “Cover Up // EP,” Florida Panhandle-based Continuum has refined themselves and their sound with their debut full-length effort “LOUD.” Since the release of “Cover Up // EP” in May 2014, and maintaining a full-time tour schedule, Continuum has experimented with and nurtured their sound and craft to develop a new brand of indie-electronic pop. Staying true to a sound that is exclusive to Continuum, “LOUD” takes its listeners on an exploration – touching on various genres from modern indie and electronic to traditional soul, bluegrass and folk – delivering listeners somewhere within the bounds of a nuance created by Continuum. With Anthony O’Shae on vocals, Jessica Heit on Violin and vocals, Buddy Brumit on guitars and vocals, and Caleb Schossow on percussion, the band cultivates a sound that showcases each individual’s own unique style, approach and execution and forms, well – a Continuum.
