Music Contest


We Are Listening has brought together the music industry’s finest professionals, from label executives to multi-platinum selling songwriters, to form the most distinguished music contest panel of judges for The Singer/Songwriter Awards. Panel members include Kevin Kerrigan (a.k.a. “KK”), music producer credited by Dido, Bjork, Santana, Nelly Furtado, and Natalie Imbruglia, among other mega-artists; Charlie Mole, songwriter/filmscorer credited by Chaka Khan, Lenny Kravitz, and Angie Stone, to name but a few; Bahar Tozman, VP A&R, EMI Music Publishing, Germany; Scott Gunter, Creative Director, Universal Music Publishing, Nashville; and three professors from the Songwriting Department at Berklee College of Music.

Attracting committed and determined songwriters and performing artists from over fifty nations, The Singer/Songwriter Awards has played a major role in the career paths of up and coming independent artists and produced several note-worthy commercial success stories to date.

With an all-encompassing approach to artist promotion centered on new media music marketing, We Are Listening delivers career-specific prizes to music contest winners, including, but not limited to, recording sessions at prominent music studios in several international locations, songwriting retreats in London and Stockholm, college radio promotion, public relations, network television placement and administration, and digital music distribution.
