Our song "The Weekend (Bad Habits)", off our new album, has won First Place in the Adult Album Alternative (AAA) category for the 2016 International Songwriting Competition. With over 16,000 entries from 137 countries, we couldn't be more excited! Our song, "Don't Give Up The Night", was an Honorable Mention in the Pop/Top 40 category as well.

 

Official Post from ISC:

The International Songwriting Competition (ISC) is pleased to announce its 2016 winners. This year ISC received more than 16,000 entries from 137 countries throughout the world. 

For the first time in the history of the competition, the Grand Prize is awarded to Canadian songwriters. It is with great pleasure that ISC bestows its highest honor to Canadian troubador Matt Epp and Morocco-born Manitoba-raised 16-year old phenom Faouzia for their co-written song “The Sound Ft. Faouzia.” The Grand Prize winners take home $25,000 in cash (USD) and over $45,000 in additional prizes.

In addition to the Grand Prize winner, many other deserving songwriters also share in the prestige and kudos of winning their respective categories in ISC. These winners hail from all over the world (59% of this year’s winners come from outside the USA) and represent diverse cultures while ranging from talented amateurs to seasoned songwriting veterans. The 23 categories include all genres of contemporary music, from rock to pop to jazz to R&B/Hip-Hop and more.

Congrats to all of our winners!

 

“We put our guitar picks through some serious abuse on stage. We need durable and reliable picks that deliver each and every show. To say Steve Clayton picks are up to such a task would be an understatement. These picks are seriously awesome! The company’s attention to detail, precision, and style, with regard to their entire product line, is remarkable and we’re truly honored to be among the ranks of Clayton endorsed artists.” – The Upset Victory 

 Excited to have partnered with Clayton USA for all of our guitar accessory and pick needs! 

 What’s YOUR favorite piece of gear fellow musician friends??
