The Singer/Songwriter Awards. We Are Listening is an artist development group based in London, England.
We have awarded you with an Honourable Mention for the song SPRINGTIME. Congratulations!
What does this mean? Every submission is included in one of many 'listening pools'. This system allows us to hear your music individually, as a group and in different groups. Artists with Honourable Mentions are those that the judges could not agree on and, therefore, had to be listened to several times and submitted for multiple listening pools. Ultimately, we award you with an Honourable Mention because your music is very good. - We Are Listening Singer Songwriter Awards
