Local songwriting competition launched


Share post:

ONE BARBADIAN songwriter has a shot at winning $10 000 and the chance to have their song sung by an international act, thanks to the 2016 National Songwriting Competition.

Chief executive officer of Destinee Entertainment Agency and the organiser of the competition Mike Cummins called on the support of industry heads to assist the budding songwriters.

At Sky Mall, Haggatt Hall, where the launch was held, Cummins said the competition is open to citizens of Barbados only.

He asked for the support of those in the music industry.

“I would like to ask all musicians, guitarists and keyboard players, recording studios and engineers to be very lenient on novices especially those who may come to them for assistance in putting their songs together,” he said

The finalists will be chosen by a judging committee who will base their decisions on originality, lyrics and melody of the song. (TG)
