Part of the mythos of the music industry is the Cinderella story. You know the one: someone comes along and plucks an artist from obscurity, whisking them away to the life they dream of. Hey, it happened to Justin Bieber — from YouTube crooner to multi-platinum artist almost overnight — so why not you?
That's what the Songwriters Hall of Fame is aiming to accomplish for a deserving Sonicbids artist with this year's Songwriters Hall of Fame Song Competition. Both amateur and professional songwriters are invited to enter to win an exclusive Universal Music Publishing Group contract, two tickets to the 2015 Songwriters Hall of Fame Annual Induction and Awards Gala, and recognition from the stage in front of the industry's most powerful star makers from music publishing, record companies, producers, managers and songwriters representatives. In addition, four second place winners will receive a one-hour creative and career mentoring session with a legendary songwriter who has been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, among other spoils.
