I'm very excited to announce that myself and Zoe Morris got through to the finals for the Stiles and Drewe Best New Song Prize 2020 with 'Broken Guitar' from the Phase.
Since 2008, the Stiles + Drewe Prize for ‘Best New Song’ has been awarded on an annual basis. 12 MMD members have their songs performed by students participating in the Stephen Sondheim Society Student Performer of the Year Award at a West End gala.
A panel of judges, including Stiles and Drewe, award the ‘Best New Song’ and the winner receives a prize of £1000 to put towards developing their work.
We are honoured to have been selected alongside so many other strong contenders especially with a song particularly close to both our hearts.
Due to the current circumstances that we find ourselves in the usual Student Performer of the Year gala this year will not be going ahead. But with the support of Mercury Musical Development, West End performers will be asked to video record themselves singing the finalist songs - which will then be presented as a virtual concert, to be streamed online at the beginning of July.
