We all know there’s world-class music in our own backyard but now the world is aware too thanks to the prestigious International Songwriting Competition. After thousands of submissions, many deserving local musicians were chosen as semi-finalists
Brantford’s Benjamin Rogers was listed for three tracks: Pendulum (Instrumental), Move Ben Move (Teen) and Wayfarer (Teen).
Just having the chance to be judged by industry greats such as Pat Metheny, Sarah McLachlan, John Hiatt, Robben Ford, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jon Secada, Bela Fleck, James Cotton and many more (click here for a full list of list years judges) is amazing!
For more information about other nominees from southwestern Ontario who made it to the semi-finals, check out this post from Hamilton Blues lovers!
