Apparently my mom entered a couple of my songs in the UK Songwriting contest. Out of five-thousand thousand entries, Cult Of Karl was one of the four songs that placed in the indie/rock category – cool! Thanks mom! She also entered Avery and something else, which apparently almost placed too.
Check out the contest results here and the video on the contest’s YouTube account here. Half of the credit goes to Dustin Hofheins for his amazing bassline on Cult (I love that bassline) and Steve Pick for his amazing animated video.
There was one grand winner in each category and three runners-up. Cult Of Karl was the runner up in the indie/rock category. And the winner? Amazing – an eleven-year-old girl named Daniella Salone won with her song Good Thing which is unbelievable. It would be a great song even ignoring the fact that a young child wrote it and recorded every instrument! This girl is awesome. She can write better than almost every adult ‘songwriter’ I’ve met. If this chick keeps at it, she will be truly great.
