Wendy’s retrospective album has now produced 2 award winning songs in the prestigious International Songwriting Competition. Songs are judged on their creativity, originality, lyrics, melody, arrangement and overall likability. Production / recording quality and vocal ability are not criteria. This makes the award all the more special for recognising the art of song writing.

Not content with one mention in the International Songwriting Competition (for title track ‘Sunsets’), Wendy’s song ‘90 Degrees’ has also just been awarded runner up in this year’s contest. She is humbled to once again be included alongside some giants of music making.
“It’s a real honour to be given such an accolade, especially considering the number of talented people who enter this competition from all over the world,” she says. “Being recognised in this way definitely spurs me on to keep working at and improving my technical skills as a professional songwriter. It also really helps me get my songs out to more listeners. As an artist though, I do believe that all creativity has merit and the best reward is always when someone really connects with my music on a personal level.”

Thank-you to everyone for reading, listening, watching, sharing and buying my music. Receiving this new international songwriting award is brilliant, but it would mean very little without your continued support.
