Thanks PG. I really appreciate the award. Biab is an amazing program and has definitely changed how I write and perform these songs. I'm totally hooked and spread the word at every opportunity. Also the showcase is filled with great writers and artists. I have learned a great deal about recording by listening to this very knowledgable community. Y'all are the best! Lastly, congrats to all the winners and to all the participants in this contest. Now I have to go hat shopping as my head just swelled up a couple of sizes. Tom

Congratulations to each contest participant. Creating and posting a song in less than 30 days is an achievement worthy of mention.

Congratulations to the four contest winners! Don't spend your PG Music cash prize all in one place. grin

Congratulations to each and every person who contributed to this very fun and exhilarating contest, many of whom worked long hours on multi-layered works of art, producing truly original, groundbreaking, musical, stylistically innovative and extremely well produced songs that were far out of the norm or status quo or what one would expect to generally hear. A lot of truly phenomenal talent was on display. In my opinion, every person who submitted was a winner. Congrats to all, inclusive of the official well-deserved winners but also inclusive of all the artisans who contributed to this magnificent effort.

This is very humbling, thank you. Have to credit the lyricist, who made the song possible, and the vocalist who knocked it out of the park. Congratulations as well to the other winners. But then we're all winners here. smile

Congratulations to the winners and all my fellow participants!

Everyone did a great job.

Thanks PG Music for running a very stimulating competition. I hope to participate again on your next one! Must have been hard to choose with so many great entries, so I guess you now know what it's like for Simon Cowell.

Cheers

This was a good way to show off some of the new styles. And good to see some "new" people showing their efforts (and old favorites, as well).

Congratulations to the winners...

I'm hoping that there will be more contests like this. Win or lose, everyone really wins. The music was great; so many different genres and musical ideas. I was floored by the songs I heard.

Congratulations to all the winners and thanks for the music from those that didn't!
