International Songwriting Competition...and I'm a Semi-Finalist!

For my song Carolina Wren

So, a few months ago I entered my song Carolina Wren (from last year's Tattletale album) in the International Songwriting Composition. I don't often enter competitions, but the New York Times said that the ISC was "the songwriting competition to take note of..."

Well, low and behold, I just heard that of the 15,000 entries, the song made it through the first gate...along with 2,249 other songs. Sure the second half of that last sentence is a bit of a downer, but I'll take my wins where I can get 'em!

Finalists will be selected in a few weeks. Wish me luck!
