2020 Winner of the Shelagh McCartin Songwriting Award

Today, Joshua Alamu, Cyprian Cassar and I announced the 2020 winner of this prestigious award. This year, the award goes to Ethan Pawley Neame with his song “How are you?”. And coming a close second is Johanna Gauci Loporto with “So cold”. The amount of songs we went through was overwhelming and Malta’s young talents are shining. It was very difficult for us to choose from all the wonderful creations submitted.

Keep an eye open for Ethan’s song – he is currently working on it at Somnio Studios and it will be launched sometime during 2021.
