This year, singer/songwriter Greg Jones of West Lafayette will receive up to 10 hours of studio time at Sweetwater Studio to record two original songs. Thousands of people across the country submitted entries. The catalyst for the contest was a desire for Sweetwater Studio to continue living out its mission of being open and accessible to up-and-coming artists.
