|"Samarai" makes it as a runner up in International Songwriting Competition (US) 2023 !!!
|Posted: Oct 13 2023
|Just received an email today regarding my trac "Samarai". The song made it as a runner up in the Adult Contemporary section of the Song of the Year International Songwriting Competition in the US . That makes two tracks now "Rhinohorn" made it to the semifinals earlier this year ! The competition is judged by luminaries from the music industry, artists , Steven Tyler, Alicia Keys, Lenny Kravitz, The Edge from U2 , Dave Grohl and Gwen Stephani were some of the judges this year along with record company CEOs and reps from Sony, Universal, CBS, and Film and TV companies Disney and Warner Bros. To do this again gives me lots of encouragement to keep writing. It is a huge competition and to even get a look in is amazing. Thanking my friends at Tone Ranger Studios in Lismore for their expertise and talent, Jim Kelly producer of dreams, guitars and bass, Brendan St. Ledger keys, synth, Scott Hills drums/percussion. My babies would not sound as they do without you .
