Song of the Year - 2017

Post by LOCK88 » Fri Jan 19, 2018 4:54 pm

Just got word that my track FREEDOM won Song of the Year (Pop) in the Dallas Songwriters Association 2017 contest. I've been completely off the radar lately with Forwards (or lack thereof), so this one was quite timely :)

It's been great seeing so many of you guys & gals killing the forwards & placements to kick off this year!

Very nice. Congrats on the award.
Playin' the blues or jammin' the cues; if it's music then it's all good.

Robb!!!! What a cool song. This is like Buffalo Springfield and Marcy Playground had a baby with Imagine Dragons. I absolutely want to hear this in a movie trailer or credits someday. That’s where it belongs!! If you have time, may I ask what elements of this (production, singing, etc.) you were most involved in, or if you did it all yourself? I find the background stories motivating and helpful for my own education. Just if you have a spare moment! Congratulations again!
