After winning the top prize at the 1999 USA Songwriting Competition, Adrianne Gonzalez gained extensive music media attention leading up to her prestigious win at Kahlúa Boston Music Awards, the equivalent of a regional Grammy award. Winners of the Kahlúa Boston Music Awards include music veterans Donna Summer and Joey McIntyre.

Brian Fellows, winner of the 1999 USA Songwriting Competition's Rock/Alternative Category, will have his work featured in Freddie Prinze Jr.'s Miramax film Down To You. He will also have a song featured in the film and on the soundtrack to Boys and Girls, being released in August 2000. Brian is the songwriter of the rock group "Settie". They were one of four artists featured at SXSW Music Showcase, hosted by USA Songwriting Competition. Other USA Songwriting Competition artists featured at the SXSW Showcase include Adrianne, Joel Cage and Mary Coppin.

"It's an extreme honor to be chosen as one out of many in any field or forum. I am happy to say that this year's USA Songwriting Competition win has enabled me the opportunity to perform at the South by Southwest Music Conference - an opportunity that I otherwise would not have.” Joel Cage, Singer-Songwriter from Meredith, NH. Joel won First Prize in the Folk Category of the 1999 USA Songwriting Competition.


Launch of the 2000 Event
The USA Songwriting Competition has announced the launch of the Year 2000 songwriting event. The competition’s sponsors include Tannoy, MARS Music Superstore, Berklee Press, Mackie, Guild Guitars, D'Addario Strings, Digitech, Line 6, Kurzweil, E-mu/Ensoniq, Electronic Musician, Music Connection, Audio Technica, Peavey, Gavin, Superdups, Rane, Tascam, ASN, Vibe, Blaze and SPIN Magazine.

USA Songwriting Competition is the world’s largest international songwriting event. It is aimed at promoting excellence in the art of songwriting among writers, composers, bands, singer/songwriters and solo artists in an international forum. The competitive environment lends excitement and fosters creative talent. Entries are accepted from now through May 31, 2000.

Entrants stand to win a grand prize of over US$50,000 in cash and merchandise. This marks the largest prize ever to be awarded to a single winner in any songwriting competition. Songs may be entered in 15 different categories including Pop, Rock, Country, R&B, World, Hip-Hop/Rap, Folk, Jazz, Latin and others. Entrants may enter as many of their songs as they wish. Songs also may be entered in multiple categories.

USA Songwriting Competition's spokesman and president Lee Lyndes said that the key motivation behind the development of the new event was to attract both professional and budding songwriters in search of the best new songs and songwriters. Lyndes added: ``many indie (independent) singer/songwriters and bands have generally been left out by major record labels and need to be heard. In addition, they receive exposure through sponsored performances at SXSW and CMJ.’’

Judges include representatives from Warner/Reprise Records, Walt Disney Music Publishing, SONY Music, Peer Music, ASCAP and Tommy Boy Records. For more information on the 2000 USA Songwriting Competition’s rules, regulations and entry forms, visit the competition website: http://www.songwriting.net
