More than two months ago, bands across Canada began to make their way to CBC Music and, with a few clicks, entered Searchlight 2015: the hunt for Canada's best new artist.
More than 3,000 acts entered, spanning genres and regions, creating a massive showcase for talent in this country. Bands from all over Canada worked together to promote new music, radio stations in all corners of the country featured entries and, in the end, one act was named Canada's best new artist.
Today, the Searchlight judges revealed their winner: Orange O'Clock from Sherbrooke, Que., has been crowned Searchlight champion! They'll appear at the CBCMusic.ca Festival in Toronto on Saturday, May 23, and $20,000 in gear from Yamaha Canada Music.
