You can listen to all of these songs on the Songwriting Challenge Soundcloud set.
If you click on the arrow at the end of the line (see pic above) it will open the song on it’s own page and you’ll be able to see the painting that inspired the song, plus a copy of the lyrics.
The songs that didn’t quite make the cut are also available to listen to as well here. You’ll see from these just how high the standard was this year.
The Showcase Final is taking place this coming Friday 23rd November at the View Two Gallery. The doors open at 7.30pm (30 minutes earlier than normal) with the event starting at 8.00pm.
The night is sponsored by Mako Music who will be filming each of the performances.
