Hey Shane- Happened to hear your song, "A Few Too Many" because it was "considered" on a licensing opportunity I'd also submitted to. Just wanted to tell you....that song ROCKS!! Really nice production. You deserve to win it.

Hi Roy,
Shane Martin here.
I have not received an e-mail update on the grand prize winner for the Dallas Songwriters Song Contest. I saw on the DSA site and I'm excited that my song "No Hard Feelings" is the grand prize winner. And I checked the Broadjam link and it says winners not available yet.
How do I claim the prizes for the contest?
I see in the Broadjam Rules that: "Arrangements for receiving all prizes, unless otherwise specified, must be made within thirty days of announcing the winners." Have they officially announced the winners yet? I see on the DSA site a date of Thursday May 19th - Is this the date of announcing the winners? The grand prize winners were not posted up there last week.
Please explain and let me know how to claim the prizes.
Thanks for the opportunity.

This song is one of those where it's just nice to listen to without the analysis that we writer/musicians typically impart. Certainly every song has strengths and weakness, but just about every word and syllable in this song is right where it should be. My sense is that this song was written by someone who has composed a lot of songs. This is so well crafted that one has to dig to find a problem with it.

The lyrics in the first verse set the stage for the song nicely. The melody in the verse is very skillfully understated, then at 40 seconds the setup for chorus brings some melodic intensity and you feel that something great is imminent. The melody and lyric in the chorus, especially the first two lines are perfectly married and unforgettable. The syllables work perfectly with the melody. Also, at 1:29, I love the line "I drowned in the bottle for weeks...".

Although I think the opening verse is good, the opening line is not as strong as it could be, I might have changed the opening line around where it starts with "Laughing like she had no scar while hanging out at the corner bar". I think it would have made the intro a little more unique and visual. But that is my only suggestion for this song.

From a commercial perspective, this is a song that any artist could sing and has strong crossover potential as well. This could be sung with an acoustic guitar, sitting at a piano or it could be a good instrumental as well. I can close my eyes and hear numerous productions of this melody. That's what makes it great. I would love to hear more from this writer as my assumption is he/she has some other good stuff in the can. Great job and congrats!
