Open to Songwriters, Artists & Musicians all over Tampa Bay


During the pandemic, Coast Brothers made the decision to ‘lean in’ and show our love for Tampa Bay by supporting first responders, local restaurants, soup kitchens and the art community. As part of this decision, we hired local muralists Derek Donnelly and The Vitale Brothers to paint our company trucks, honoring legendary artist Billy Woo in the process. We documented this brilliant artwork and originally, we chose some popular music for the project, but Facebook (and Dave Grohl) wouldn’t give us the rights to promote it, so we thought, hey, if we are using local muralists, local venues, why not LOCAL MUSICIANS too??

And thus began the contest.

The Contest

CoastBrothers is hosting a song-writing contest for all artists in the Tampa Bay area!

The following three videos were created during COVID-19 to support local artists and first responders, and now they need their own local music.

Healthcare Heroes

Dolphin Timelapse

Billy Woo Tribute

Think you have what it takes? We can’t wait to hear it. Submit your best work; we are open to any genre. Please submit your song (or songs) below (max number of entries is one per video) and tell us which video below you think it fits best.

Prizes & Benefits

We are giving out prizes for all three videos! The winning artist will receive $500 per song, a spot on the weekly St Pete Live livestream (heard by thousands), and a spot in our Live from St Pete concert series coming up in August.

All entrants will receive an entry confirmation & Judging schedule to easily track the judging process.
