We mentioned SongCircle
a couple of weeks ago as a great organization looking for new and interesting songwriters across the country. This week they announced known as Barnaby Bright
, a duo from Brooklyn by way of Kansas City, MO, as the winners of the 5th annual SongCircle songwriting contest, held at City Winery in New York City.
Nathan and Becky Bliss received $10,000 in cash and were offered a recording, publishing and full label services agreement with SongCircle Music/EMI, a chance to perform at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, a radio spot on "Out Of The Box With Jonathan Clarke" on Q104.3 FM in NYC, a high-end Gibson guitar and studio session time with a respectable producer.
Barbaby Bright is mostly guitar based, finger-licks and melancholic harmonies that play well for introspective contemplation (and the miserable rainy day we're experiencing in New York City at the moment). Check out their tunes and stay tuned for news on any forthcoming recordings they lay down with their winnings. -joe puglisi
