Some might consider themselves just to be average high school students, messing around and making music. At Vermilion High, we call that potential! For young, up-and-coming artists looking to have their music professionally workshopped, recorded and released, Vermilion High might just be their chance to experience something truly incredible.
Each year, Vermilion High gives a few lucky high school musicians and bands the opportunity to have their own original music recorded in one of the industry’s best studios, located right at QUT’s Kelvin Grove campus! It’s not to say that people don’t love those bedroom-made bangers, but that the student-run record label are excited to work with some young talent and to help local artists take their songs to the next level. With the help of musicians, producers and artist managers, Vermilion High is dedicated to supporting and collaborating with students who may not otherwise be encouraged to follow their dreams.

Vermilion High has assembled a line-up of university student mentors who will provide every applicant with detailed feedback on the tracks that they submit. These student mentors will also be leading the songwriting workshops, and helping the artists move forward through the producing and release stages, alongside sound engineers and artist managers. It’s great vibes all-round at Vermilion High, but don’t just take our word for it! Check out the amazing talent from last year’s successful Vermilion High applicants here.
If you haven’t already submitted a track, apply here by 11:59pm, 3rd of May 2021. We hope to see your application in our inbox!
