And the award goes to...

It's results time again for the UK Songwriting Contest!
Last year I entered two of my songs and both were awarded Semi-Finalist status. I vowed that this time I would try my hardest to win that coveted "Finalist" award. And I did!

Not only did I get Finalist status but my song, "Call This a Draw", went one higher and was named Runner-up in the Jazz/Blues category! Of course, my song was up against more than 5,000 other entries worldwide and there are tons of brilliant songs entered every year. I've been featured in newspapers in the past just for making the semi-finals, so being runner-up this time will hopefully open some doors and get more people listening to my band's music.

More than anything I'm hoping this will encourage people to come along to the Album Launch Party on the 3rd July. It's going to be a blast and a truly noteworthy moment in my band's history.
Here's the runner-up song, Call This a Draw:
