Song Showdown Winner Announced!

By admin

Congratulations to 2010’s Song Showdown winner, Wolfgang Lochner!

Wolfgang took home bragging rights and a nice bundle of prizes including an Alchemy gift certificate and some recording time at local, award-winning Paradyme Productions recording studio when his song “MC Hammer” won the night on Wednesday, December 8th at The Alchemy

Nine fine local songwriters competed in the final, which was the culmination of a year of monthly Song Showdown winners. The caliber of the songs was so good that at one point, one of the judges was heard to remark that an enormous tie might be the outcome.

The Madison Songwriters Guild would like to thank Jim Schwall for hosting the Song Showdown every month, and the venue, The Alchemy, for their support.

Randy’s Recording and MSG are pleased to offer a recording seminar for the performing songwriter.

Each songwriter records a basic demo (guitar/piano and voice), with an explanation off the process as it progresses. At the end, the group evaluates the demos for recordability and Randy chooses one to produce at the studio.

Every songwriter goes home with his or her recording, plus a compilation of the other demos done that day. This is the fourth time Randy and MSG have teamed up to offer this event, and the participants at previous sessions were very pleased with the results.

Specs:
Cost is $39 for MSG members or $64 for non-members (includes 1-year MSG membership)
Date/time: Saturday, August 28th, 1-4 p.m.
