Round two is done and there are now six finalists who will compete live in The Augusta Chronicle’s AMPED: Music Contest.
Voters listened to the 12 semifinalists at augustachronicle.com/AMPED. The three popular-vote picks and three critics’ picks advance to the final round at the Arts in the Heart of Augusta festival on Sept. 21.
But first, they have a chance to refine their performances at the Official Sky City Preview Show on Thursday, Sept. 5. Doors open at 8 p.m. and admission is free.
Here are the six finalists (in random order):
D. Blaze – Day Dreaming, piano-driven hip-hop
The Remedy – How We Roll, Christian roadhouse rock
Eskimojitos – Golden Gate, melodic rock
She N She – Secrets, acoustic folk rock
Dallas Duff – Perfect Ten, electric country rock
Chris Hardy – She’s a Loud Thinker, quirky acoustic rock
