Whew! This was QUITE an experience! The first time I sent my song “Valediction” in, I only got runner up. In 2017, I was one of the six finalists out of hundreds of applicants! I played “Hey, I Say” and “Fire and Ice”. The latter was the song that got chosen for the contest. I was upset not winning, but it was an amazing show full of great talent! Plus, the guy who won definitely deserved it! The prize was a 30 minute concert at a later date and a professional recording of the selected song, but I play out all the time and Johnny from The Music Lab makes my songs sound amazing!!!
