“One of the Midwest’s hottest acts” (Shepherd Express), Bascom Hill, is riding a wave of advance acclaim for their self-titled release (out Sept 7 on Arrival Records) and will be featured in the new webisode series, “Crash Course To Stardom” (CCTS), debuting Aug. 9 at .

CCTS is a one week “boot camp,” produced by music industry veterans Jonnie Forster, Jonathan McHugh, and Jonathan Platt, designed to prepare today’s wannabes for becoming tomorrow’s somebody’s. After attending Bascom Hill’s performance at last year’s Summerfest, the producers whisked the band away to Los Angeles for an intense weeklong adventure in preparing for the big time. The band worked tirelessly for the duration, meeting with producers (Matt Wallace), writers (Mitch Allan), stylists, stage coaches, fitness trainers, hair stylists, choreographers, and others to prepare for their big moment.

The series will debut Aug. 9 and new 3-5 minute webisodes will be posted weekly. Viewers will have the opportunity to interact with the band via Twitter and Facebook and also enter to win numerous contests.
