DC Cardwell wins Catapult Song Contest… twice!

DC Cardwell took out both the overall winner award AND the judges favourite award for his song: “I Am Still The Same” (see video below).  Presented in 2011 by Underground Talent, and hosted by Replicat Music, Catapult Song Contest had a record 3000+ song entries from over 1500 Australian based musicians.  The contest was judged by a mix of audience votes and industry judging.  Judges included Australia’s most celebrated Music Director – John Foreman, Nova FM’s national prime time drive host Tim Blackwell and Australian Idol winner and multiple Aria charting artist, Natalie Gauci.  Of “I Am Still The Same” John Foreman said:

Fantastic evocative vocal tone and great lyrics. Nice vocal layering builds the song. The song successfully creates an atmosphere that captures the story of the lyrics. The video clip does also help to tell the story. Together with the clip it’s a very moving song.”

As part of the prize, DC won over 1000 free CD pressings from Replicat, over 30 hours of marketing mentoring from Underground Talent, graphic design package from Josi Designs, mixing  from Simon Paul Studios and Mastering from Mano Musica.
