On a whim, and because it is so easy – just need to send a link to your soundcloud page – I entered some songs to the 2013 UK Songwriting Contest. I was so happy, and surprised, that my songs Lost Cause and The Time Travelling Wife reached the finals. I encourage you to check out the artists that won, certainly some future stars amongst them.
My finalist songs can be heard on the player below. Both will be on my forthcoming album Hidden in Plain Sight. The Time Travelling Wife, which is my homage to the great jazz torch songs, is also featured on my Jazz EP, My Funny Valentine.
Any songwriters reading this – enter some songs next year. What’s the worst that can happen?
