2019 Winner of the Shelagh McCartin Songwriting Award

On 15 December during my students’ Christmas party at Planet Hollywood, the winner of the Shelagh McCartin Songwriting Award was announced.

The winner is Maya Morrow with her song ‘Stop wasting your time’. She will shortly begin working on this song at Somnio Studios together with well-known composer and producer Cyprian Cassar.

I’d like to thank all those who participated. You all showed creativity in your compositions. Well done!
