Songwriters and Story Tellers Compilation Contest Winners
The selection process was a combination of fans voting through the iMuzic.com website and through a panel of judges. "This was a very difficult process" said Indie Artists Alliance founder, Phil Peretz, "we looked at several factors including how many times fans listened to the songs all the way to conclusion. We factored this against the voting score to keep this from being a popularity contest where the artists with the biggest database would win the contest. Once we narrowed the group of songs we took the 50 songs to our panel of judges and they selected the winners based on their abilities to paint a picture with words. By doing this we uncovered some great independent musicians."
The winning artists and songs are:
1st Place: Wildman Green; You Can Only Follow
2nd Place: Lynn JULIAN (Cookie Cutter Girl); I Feel You
3rd Place: Mastema; Requiem for My Liver
Emerging Artist Award: J. Stump; Tied Up, Try'd & oh so Tired
Songwriter of the Year: Nona Piha; Don't Look Back (It's Over Now)
