Musings about music.

Congratulations Amanda Duncan!

I want to take a second to congratulate Amanda Duncan on winning the February Ourstage Monthly Song Competition. It's a well deserved accolade for a very hard working, fun musician. She won for her song Love I Have For You.

I met Amanda a couple of months ago in Asbury Park, NJ and I was instantly impressed by her bubbly and outgoing attitude towards music. She's a genuinely nice person (and a hugger!) who makes really good music and she does it because she loves it, and I think that's awesome so I do what I can to support her endeavors. You can buy her EP on Amazon or on CD Baby.

Amanda is currently competing in the Train's "Save Me, San Francisco" Songwriting Challenge also found on Ourstage, if you get a chance check out the entries and cast your vote!

While I was weeding through entries for the song competition I came across some emerging new talent that's also worth checking out. I was particularly impressed with Caitlyn Hessell, Xoe Wise, Crissi Cochrane, Devin Belle, and Chris O'Brien. They each have a Myspace page worth checking out and I'm keeping them on my radar for the future.
