Selected for “Canadian Songwriting Challenge”!

Well, I am quite excited about the prospect of participating in the “Canadian Songwriting Challenge,” which is in partnership with the Canadian Council of Music Industry Association (CCMIA) and Bell Media. Only 9 applicants were selected. I would also like to thank SaskMusic. I look forward to learning from Jay Semko as the senior mentor. One can easily forget when one is at a Summer Music festival with all the crowds, sun and music in the air that songwriting, the crafting of songs, can sometimes be a solitary endeavour. Co-writing, I imagine, mitigates this. Also, I think that as much as individual artists attempt to push their own creative boundaries in the name of songwriting interest, there is a finite set of tolls that anyone person may have. In these ways, I am looking forward to working with others in a craft from which I derive much enjoyment.
