Singer-Songwriter Competition (OKSS)

It is with a heavy heart that I make the following announcement:

The OKSS competition will be POSTPONED INDEFINITELY at this time.  


We will miss you, but hope that we will see you again very soon! 



For the past eight years, the Okanagan Singer-Songwriter (OKSS) competition has provided an opportunity for musicians to perform in a welcoming environment.  Every style of music has been touched upon during these  past years.

The OKSS, formerly known as the Lake Country Open Mic Has Talent!, was designed to spotlight an original singer-songwriter and to give them an opportunity to record their original song, as well as perform at venues and events throughout the Okanagan.

Three years ago, the competition rose to a new level by collaborating with the LegionHQ - a group with one purpose: to promote the growth of musical creation and industry in the Okanagan. This partnership has helped grow our prize collection, and put us in the position to help not only one winner, but many!  

We hope you will join us for our 9th competition year!

~ Jennifer Boal, Creator and Producer
