Stronger Wiser success

I discovered today that my song "Stronger Wiser" has been shortlisted into the top 25 of the Australian Songwriting Competition! Considering the song had only been roughly mixed at the time of entering it into the competition i'm pretty happy wtih the outcome! Stronger Wiser was written for the community where I grew up, the Riverland, who were at the time of writing the song feeling the pressures of the drought. I drew from my family's experience (4 generations worth) to write this song and try to help those who were battling with mental health issues as a consequence of the drought and financal strain. I'm really chuffed to be acknowledged for this one!

2010 SCALA FOOM competition

I recently made my way to the live finals and awards night for the SCALA FOOM Festival (Songwriters, Composers And Lyrisists Association Festival Of Original Music... what a mouthful!) smile

I had more than my fair share of success taking out the gong in both the Live and Lyrics section with "World of Mine" and "Heal the Wounds" respectively, runner up in the Studio Section with a roughly mixed version of "Stronger Wiser", overall winner of the Star Achievement Award and winner of the People’s Choice Award as voted by the live audience on the night of the Live Final and Awards night. I was overwhelmed with the praise from peers and judges and not having prepared a speech I found myself lost for words by the end of the night!
