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.

“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??

THANK YOU! 

 This particular milestone has been years in the making. We’ve accomplished a lot in our relatively short tenure as band, but, we’d have to say, seeing our supporters rally around a unified goal such as this has to be at the top of our list for special moments. As cliche as might be to say, we truly could not have done this without YOU. And, for that we are truly grateful.  

 From your generous support, passion, and enthusiasm - you all brought your “A game” to this campaign and it certainly paid off. We truly appreciate every contribution, tweet, email, phone call, text message, status update, etc. that was sent regarding TUV and this campaign.  

 We’re ready to take on 2015 and the success of this Kickstarter certainly was a great way to kick off the New Year. We’ve put in a lot of hard work, time, and ourselves into this music. Ecstatic is an understatement for the way we feel about this new album.  

 We spent the past year writing and doing pre-production for this release - a journey that took us back to Orlando this past Fall and now will see us return to Orlando a week from today to continue this journey. Our team is at the top of their game. Rest assured that your contributions will be put to use effectively. 

 We truly can’t thank you enough for your time and contributions. 

 There’s a lot of great things in the works for when we return home and we look forward to conquering 2015 with you! 

 Together we created this album. 

 + The Upset Victory 

 *Special tribute to all of our wonderful donors coming!

Our single “Fake This” was #1 for the month of January on Our Stage.  

 As a result, our track “will be featured on the next installment of ‘OurStage on Amazing Radio’, an online and terrestrial radio show broadcast out of the UK to hundreds of thousands of listeners”! If you’re a music fan and haven’t checked out Our Stage or Amazing Radio we highly recommend it.  

 Lots of cool artists were played first via these two great outlets. Huge thank you to Our Stage and Amazing Radio for the opportunity.

The day has come friends and we have a huge announcement… 
 We’ll be recording our first full-length album next month. It’s amazing to think about, but we started this band in 2006. It’s taken us on a crazy journey - countless shows, recordings, travels, new friendships, and experiences we never thought possible. This has been in part due to YOU and for that we thank you. We want  YOU  to be an integral part of this recording process. 
 This also gives us the chance to  REWARD YOU  with all sorts of exclusives: come to the studio and record with us, private shows, merchandise, even a guitar giveaway, and a whole lot more. 
 We thought long and hard about crowdfunding and decided it was the best approach for us. It’s a process in which supporters can see exactly where their money is going and can actively be a part of our creative process in a fun and engaging way. In essence, YOU will be our record label. NO middlemen, NO B.S., and NO corners cut. This is honest music being supported by YOU - our supporters, family, and friends. 
  Help us reach this milestone in our career, usher in a new era for our band, and be a part of our first ever LP.  
  YOU can be our record label.  
  Together we can create this album - here’s to YOU and conquering 2015 together!
