The Launch Competition was a great way to mark the opening of our recording studio. We made some great connections with the musicians in our community and we were totally blown away by the standard of all the entries we received.
The winners of the Band category were the trio T.I.M.E. who sent us a version of their song 'Control' which was filmed and recorded live at one of Nelsons finest live music venues, The Boathouse.
Reece Milton was the winner of the Soloist category. He sent us a great original song called 'Once in a Lifetime'. All three judges unanimously agreed that Reece's song was the winning entry, although there were some close contenders.
We're really looking forward to getting our winners into the studio to get their songs recorded!
Waimea College had a strong presence in the competition and the standard of their entries and several others has inspired us to create some additional offers so we can continue to foster our vision of creating a strong presence and contribution within the Nelson Original music scene. Watch this space!
