As a business partner of the Academy of Contemporary Music, peer
music is often heavily involved in much of what goes on there.
Newton Faulkner is an ACM alumni so we are aware of the quality of
musicians and songwriters coming through and are constantly on the
look out for next big thing.
Our Creative Director Richard Holley recently judged this years
Songwriting competion, here is what he had to say:
On the 29th of May, I had the great honour
of judging this year's ACM Song Writing Competition, which I have
done a couple of times before.
standard was particularly high this year and it was great to see
the students being so supportive of each other. It was
really hard to choose a winner but I felt 'Phone Call Away' by
George Pepole struck an instant, powerful and emotive connection
with the listener, which, to me, is a sign of a great song.
As part of the prize, George will have a couple of days in our
studio and I really look forward to hearing a recorded version of
track can be viewed on our home page as the video of the week,
alternative go here to watch it directly on Youtube
