International Songwriting Competition:
Grant was a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, in the teen catagory for his song Restore the World. How exciting to see his hardwork recognized.
The John Lennon Songwriting Contest:
Grant entered The John Lennon Songwriting Contest Session II, and it is thrilling to announce he was selected as a finalist in the Gospel/Inspirational Category for his song Restore the World. Recognition for songwriting skills and performance is a beautiful way to encourage a young artist to keep up the hard work (the prizes are cool too). You can see Grant at the bottom center of the photo.
Some of Grant’s favorite instructional materials for songwriting are the books: The Craft of Lyric Writing by Davis, Writing Better Lyrics by Pattison, The Craft of Christian Songwriting by Sterling and Songwriting: Essential Guide to Lyric Form and Structure by Pattison.
