Producer Rodney Jerkins is teaming up with Blazetrak.com for a talent search which will yield a 3-4 year publishing deal to a budding producer.

Through the month of August, Jerkins will accept submissions through Blazetrak.com at a price of $100. He will respond to each with a 45 second – 1 minute video, and select the winning producer on September 30.

The winner will be revealed October 1 on Ustream. Jerkins is open to signing more talent, stating that, “If two or three of the entries are really good, then I will sign them all. Talent is talent.”

Jerkins has produced hits for Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Michael Jackson, and Mary J Blige among others. Blazetrak is a platform for industry veterans (including Teddy Riley, Paul Oakenfold and Bryan-Michael Cox) to provide feedback at a specified cost.
