'I Lost Myself'

In my last post I was rooting for Erin Saoirse Adair in CBC's Searchlight contest and if you follow me on Twitter you would have seen that she made it to the final round - yay! That was an exciting day for Dean as co-producer on "The Ugly Song."
Erin was among more than 4,000 artists across Canada who entered the contest, and after being voted in as one of the top 25 in the region, then top 25 in Canada and finally, top 10 in Canada,  her song was chosen by Torquil Campbell of Stars to be in the top four in the final round. That round was the shortest but the anticipation was at its highest!
This morning we found out the results and, sadly, Erin did not win the whole darn thing, but it was still an exciting week for her and for Dean. Plus, now that she's riding that high of making it so far in such a large contest, we can look forward to some new work from her very soon. And I have to give props to all the bands in the finals and semi-finals. From what I saw on social media, it was the friendliest competition you could imagine.

The winners of Searchlight 2014 are Lauren Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk. They sound great and I look forward to checking out more of their work. Here's a nice song for a rainy Friday:
