    OK not too big of a deal realy but we entered the Billboard Song Writing contest for our song "Photograph" no it's not a Def Lepoard cover! :p We recieved an Honerable Mention Award placing in the top 1500 and scoring a 7 out of 10 overall. Hey it's just a baby step but definitely a step in the right direction. We are headed into the studio this Saturday here in Hollywierd to record a 3 song demo. Actually reworking that song too. I had the 71 precision out the other day really thinking of using that one in the studio sounds amazing! I really shouldn't be that afraid of playing it I just want to keep it safe.
    RAWK ON!

  2. Very cool and congrats! It's always a good feeling...I wish you the best of luck with that recording. And the 71 I bet sounds purdy....any links to your song?

    My band (the Curtain Society) placed in the top 50 in the CMJ/Coca Cola contest 2 years ago... Carbon Leaf won, but the feeling is great just the same.

    There's another song on there called One More Chance if you feel like listening. It's not my favorite but a pretty good song.
    Thanks for the congrats!

    and a belated congrats on the CMJ/Coca Cola it sure is a nice feeling. Especially with all the closed doors around us in this business something possitive is rare!
     
  5. Not bad. There must have been a lot of songs if the top 1500 got prizes.

    Still, it's a remarkable accomplishment. Congratulations!!

    :D

    Rock on
