Carlock says the best part of the contest is the networking aspect.

“Meeting all the new talent and helping them discover what a pro recording studio experience is has been a lot of fun for everyone, including myself,” he said. “Participants get a glimpse of the self promotion and hard work necessary to succeed as a musical artist while networking with an established record producer at the same time.”
