"Song of the Year"


Monterey resident, Tanja Groesbeck, recently received the honor of being named October 2004’s Lyric Contest Winner by the Song of the Year songwriting contest. Tanja competed against songwriters from all over the world for this honor.

Song of the Year is excited to recognize Tanja for her exceptional lyric writing ability for the song On the Horizon. When asked what inspired the song, Tanja commented “Being a Navy wife for over a decade has given me plenty to write about. These lyrics are about the emotional ups and downs of deployments, and they come from personal experience.”

A paralegal by trade, Tanja is currently concentrating on her lyric writing while hoping to find a musician to collaborate with. “The best part in this recognition has just been in the fact that my words have touched another person enough to stand out from the tough competition out there”, she states.

Song of the Year is an international songwriting contest supporting VH-1’s Save the Music Foundation. The Song of the Year judges are some of the biggest names in music, including many Grammy Award winners.
