The Canadian Peak Performance Project

     In each of the last seven years, Peak Performance Project held a contest that is open to all British Columbia musicians. In 2013, Vancouver’s Rykka (Christina Maria) walked away with the first place money of more than $100,000. But each of twnety finalists received at least $5,000. Fortunately for all of us, Peak Performance Project allows free and legal downloads of the 20 songs. There are two options: (1) the songs can be downloaded individually/selectively from Soundcloud and (2) the entire collection can be downloaded as a ZIP file at the site

Below is the list of twenty finalists and their hometowns. We also embedded our recommended songs.
