06.19Ana Egge Wins Songwriting Contest!
I got to see Ana Egge open for Dar Williams in NYC back when Dar was releasing The Beauty of the Rain (2003). Since then I keep hearing good stuff about her through other musician’s blogs, and now her MySpace page.
She just won the Mountain Stage New Song Songwriting Competition in NYC so she will advance to the International Phase on Sept 22 as a part of NYC’s River To River Festival. Congrats Ana!
You can listen to song samples and buy tracks at her online music store – all the proceeds go directly to Ana, which is so great for an independent musician.
PS – I just checked out the service she uses for her music store: indieKazoo. Seems like a super cool way to sell your mp3′s. Tracks play on any device, and the artist gets to keep all the proceeds! Very nice!
