Learn about Project M


What is Project M?
Local, unscripted entertainment.. not to mention, remarkable new music. Triple M listeners are avid supporters and seekers of local music, and Madison is home to many talented, unheard musicians. Project M couples the Triple M audience with eight of these individuals/groups and give them a real chance to share their talents on a larger scale.

How it works:
After a rigorous selection process, eight Madison artists are chosen to compete in Project M 11th Anniversary. Over the course of six weeks, these musicians receive weekly challenges and are expected weekly to write and perfect a song for local celebrity judges in just seven days. Their masterpieces are critiqued & opinions are weighed before one musician is eliminated. Challenges are played until just three artists remain. These three compete at the Project M finale where the judges decide who is the 2019 Project M winner.

What does the Project M winner get:
One grand prize artist/band will be awarded with a $1,000 check from 105.5 Triple M and named 2019's Project M Champion, Chance to play at Summerfest, Song played on 105.5 Triple M, and a guitar from Ward Brodt.
