The header photo above shows UKSC 2017 Winner Irina Barzykina with well known producer, and UKSC judge, Stuart Epps during a studio session last week. Stuart chose Irina as the UKSC category winner he would most like to work with and produce and last week they spent time together working on some new songs and recording a brand new track. (Insider info: the AKG C12a mic in that photo is one of Stuart´s prized possessions. It originally belonged to the Rolling Stones and has been used by many other famous rock and pop legends while recording their vocals).
One of this year´s UKSC 2018 entrants will also be chosen for studio sessions and there are some great prizes on offer including Honorary Music Diplomas (Dip.Mus) for the top entrants and much more. The international UK Songwriting Contest 2018 is now open for entries and you can get full details and entry forms at www.uksongwritingcontest.com
We also have a Facebook UKSC Songwriters Community group where you can interact and network with other entrants, ask questions and get support. And you can always contact us directly at any time with questions using the contact form on the UKSC website.
If you haven´t entered a song yet; we hope to hear from you soon. If you have already entered songs this year, look out in your inbox for a special mailing to entrants over the next few days.
Very best wishes
The UKSC Team
