PREPARE Auditions

  • This is a low tech audition. Most people use their smartphone to capture what we need to hear and it works great.
  • We have a specific song that we'd like you to audition with that is reflected within the Dropbox links below.
  • Video Auditions are ongoing and we are happy to accept them at any time!
  • Record a video of yourself playing or singing the song.
  • Vocalists, if you can’t accompany yourself, play the song in the background and sing over the top. Make sure you are singing the same intensity of the original composition.
  • We need to hear the song and your voice/instrument!!

Things we will be looking for:

  • Heart for Worship
  • Comfortability with the song (preparation)
  • Strength of playing (wrong or right notes)
  • Accuracy of parts (drums, you too!)
  • Style (feel)

When you are ready, please send your videos to prepare@substancechurch.com.
