MidWeek Updates: Upcoming Music Competitions

1.30.19 Hey there everyone…January is pretty much over, but I have found something for those lobbying in music. For a lot of us, we love to listen to music, but for some, we love to make it. Here are a few upcoming music competitions that I post before you… Credit:    If you are an unsigned artist and think you have what it takes to land a record deal, then you should enter the Unsigned Only Music Competition.

This elite, international songwriting competition is …

Born in Frankfurt and raised in Canada and England, Merton‘s absorption of different styles and sounds helped craft the worldly progressive pop leanings on her debut, which came out in 2017. As a child, she learned classical piano and singing while in Canada. When Merton was a teenager, her family moved to Germany, where she would pick up the guitar and write her first song. While in Germany, she also studied at the Mannheim conservatory of music. Later, the family would relocate again, this time to England. These frequent international shifts would play a key role in the songwriting process for her first output, 2017’s No Roots EP (Mom + Pop Records). The four-track effort included the fiery “Lash …
