And into the semi finals of another national competition...
Hot on the heels of making it into the finals of Undiscovered Talent UK last week, Amity’s moving song “Ragdoll” has now made it into the semi finals of the highly prestigious UK Songwriting Contest.
The competition was incredibly high, with thousands of entrants from over 80 countries. Amity also entered “Burnt” and “Comet Trails”, which both earned a highly coveted 5 star award and were 'highly commended' and 'commended' respectively. It is a huge achievement to have all three entries receive five star awards from this illustrious body, never mind getting through to the semi finals.
The UK Songwriting Contest is one of the world's longest running songwriting events and it is widely regarded as the most prestigious international songwriting competition. The contest was formed with support from the BRIT Trust to promote the craft of songwriting and to encourage and discover new songwriters and it is well known in the music industry as a launching pad for new talent. This competition has an unrivalled and highly respected reputation in the international music industry.
It launched in London in 2002 in association with important music industry bodies and companies including The BRIT Trust, The BRIT School, The BRIT Studio, Music Aid International, the Guild of International Songwriters and Composers and Roland UK among others.
