I got a call last night from the founder of the International Songwriting Competition to tell me that ‘Never Really Cried’ won the Best Performance category of this years competition.

The competition received more almost 15,000 entries and was voted for by some of the worlds biggest musicians, including: Kings of Leon; Tom Waits; Timbaland;  Jeff Beck; Robbie Williams; Black Francis (The Pixies) and some record company heads!

I really chuffed as this is the only category that takes the vocal performance and production into consideration as well as the songwriting ability.
