2010 Song Contest Winners
  • Winner - Meghan Trainor
    • We are delighted to name Meghan as the Grand Prize Winner of the 2010 New Orleans Songwriters Festival Song Contest. Not only is she a great writer, but we thought you might like to know that she sang all of the vocals, played or programmed all of the instruments, arranged the songs, and engineered and mixed the recordings IN HER BEDROOM!! Oh yea, and she's 16 years old!!! (We only knew her age and that she had written the songs when we first listened to her tunes.) We suspect Meghan is going to have a big career in music and are delighted to have been given the opportunity to listen to these songs and perhaps help her along the way in her career!!!
