"International Songwritting Competition 2010 Winners"

Australian singer-songwriter Kasey Chambers has earned the Grand Prize for this year’s International Songwriting Contest, an annual event open to both aspiring and established songwriters. Chambers wrote the winning song, “Beautiful Mess,” about parenthood.

Says Chambers: “I honestly can’t believe it. When I entered the International Songwriting Competition, I didn’t think I even had a chance being up against songwriters from all over the world…I thought it would be fun to enter anyway. I’ve heard about the competition for a while, but it’s the first time I’ve ever entered. What a buzz knowing that the judges were artists/songwriters such as Tom Waits, Ben Harper, Peter Gabriel, and Rihanna. Winning with the song “Beautiful Mess” makes it even more special as it’s a song I wrote for my two boys, Talon and Arlo. Guess I’d better buy them an ice cream.”

Other big winners include Nashville’s Nicole Witt (Country), Toronto’s Tucker Finn (Folk/Singer-Songwriter), and Kahn Morbee of the South African band The Parlotones (Rock).

"Ashley Gearing Releases Emotionally-charged New Single 'Five More Minutes'"

Curb Records recording artist Ashley Gearing has released her sophomore single to Country radio, a stirring and emotionally-charged new ballad titled 'Five More Minutes.'
Gearing co-wrote 'Five More Minutes' with Tiffany Goss and Nicole Witt, which was produced by renowned industry veteran Byron Gallimore (Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Sugarland). Gearing has been working with Gallimore on her debut album for Curb Records, due out later this year.

'Ashley continues to mature every time we go into the studio together,' said Byron Gallimore. ''Five More Minutes' is just another step in her evolution as a country superstar and I am thrilled to be associated with her as both a performer and a songwriter.'

The beautifully written 'Five More Minutes' showcases Gearing's soaring vocals and delivers a poignant message about the speed at which life can pass. Gearing co-wrote the song with Goss and Witt during their first-ever writing session, when Ashley was still a high school student in Massachusetts.

'We wrote this song a little over three years ago and it still holds just as much meaning to me today as it did when we first wrote it. The message of the song is about the special moments in life that one should cherish because you can't always have five more minutes,' said Gearing. 'As I've gotten older and have become busier with my music career and everyday life, the song has taken on an even stronger meaning. I am so excited to be able to share this song with my fans and with country radio.'

'Five More Minutes' follows Gearing's 2010 debut single, 'What You Think About Us.' The 19-year-old singer splits her time between furthering her education at Belmont University in Nashville and on the road touring to promote her music.

Bio

Music is what feelings sound like.”

This quote by an unknown author encompasses Nicole Witt and her music.

Nicole is blessed with work-ethic, talent and a musical pedigree. Nicole’s father was a square dancer on the famed Ozark Jubilee TV show in Springfield, Mo. and her uncle played the banjo. She followed in the footsteps of her grandmom who played piano and her fiddle playing grandfather. It was a childhood that prepared her to chase and capture a dream.

It was April of 1998 when the Missouri-native arrived in music city and she wasted no time starting a climb up the ladder of success. It took only two years for Nicole to secure a publishing deal with EMI Music Publishing

Nicole is a co-writer on songs recorded by Diamond Rio (“The Box”), Rodney Atkins (“Angel’s Hands”), Clay Walker (“It Ain’t Pretty, But It’s Beautiful”), Terri Clark (“She Didn’t Have Time”), Lee Brice (“Airport Song”) and George Strait (“Brothers of the Highway”). Strait’s album “Troubadour” won both a CMA for 2008 Album of the Year and a Grammy for 2009 Country Album of the Year. In November of 2009, Ednita Nazario recorded a song that Nicole wrote with Nick Carter of the Backstreet boys. ("Two Forevers") is Nicole's first Latin cut. Since the winter of 2010, Nicole has had songs recorded by Wynonna ("I Can't"), Steve Holy ("Heart of a Hero"), Ashley Gearing ("Five More Minutes") and new pop sensation Kaile Goh on Universal/Lava ("Not That Into You"). These songs will all make their debut sometime in 2011.
Then there is Nicole Witt the performer.

There is something striking about Nicole when she stands on a stage. Maybe it is the calm and confident way she addresses a crowd. It could be the ability to play the fiddle and piano with abandon. There’s a probability it’s the voice that leaves Nicole’s personalized stamp on each song she sings. Or it might be the songwriting that weaves emotion into an unforgettable sound. However, more than likely it’s all of the above...

At six-years-old she was playing the piano and by eight years of age she had grabbed the fiddle. The Mid-Western woman puts on a musical clinic when she steps on stage. Nicole takes people on a journey as each piano-based song is played. As the performer gets lost in the music, so follows the audience. It is an emotional experience.

When Nicole picks up the fiddle, the crowd can be prepared for fun. Like the sound of wheels on a smooth train track, she slides through each song without missing a beat. Toes tap and people sway along to the music.

Garth Brooks once said, “True country music is honesty, sincerity and real life to the hilt.”

It’s not just the sound of University of Missouri grad’s beautiful voice delivering the message. It’s Nicole’s interpretation of each song. THAT is what makes a listener connect to her music and the raw emotion it evokes. Nicole Witt music gives sound to a wide variety of feelings.

This is a woman who truly loves the art of the song. Each tune stands on it’s own. However, when Nicole is the one at the microphone they take on an even deeper meaning. The wife and mother handles each song with care, because the music is part of who she is.

It would be wrong to give you only facts about the woman, because the music tells her story. There is poetry in the notes she sings. There are tears in the wail of her bow making it’s way across the fiddle. There is a hush floating from the keys of the piano. It is rare to be unable to compare one artist to another. Nicole Witt is one of those rarities. Her art is her own.
