Musician Ben Drysdale

CANBERRA muso and theatre identification Ben Drysdale has been honoured within the Nashville-based “Unsigned Solely” music competitors for 2022.

The competitors is geared towards music artists who’re unsigned to a serious document label or its associates.

After we contacted him, Drysdale mentioned he had entered his unreleased music “I’m Flyin’ Now”, co-written with CoyoteBear and produced at Amberly Studios, into the competitors, going up towards 7000 entries from 120 international locations.

In a single e mail from “Unsigned Solely”, he was advised the music had had obtained an honourable point out within the high 15 of the “Folks/Singer songwriter” class, which he  was “tremendous stoked” about.

However then a second e mail revealed that “I’m Flyin’ Now” had been judged one of many high three within the “Win Some Love”, incomes him a swag of prizes, not least a music manufacturing suite, a efficiency microphone and an artist care bundle.

The judging panel of music artists and business consultants included Nicholas Petricca (Stroll The Moon), Robert Smith and Darryl McDaniel (Run DMC) and Derek Brown (The Flaming Lips).

“Generally it feels such as you’re beating your head up towards a wall attempting to create artwork… then typically it’s like…. Yay, omigod,” Drysdale mentioned.
