Here is the winning song: Turn It On
The competition was steep, with great songs from over 60 of Hamilton’s best musical acts/collaborations. Among the finalists were two of Hamilton’s rising stars, Ginger St James and Robin Benedict, so the heat was on, but in the end, these 3 rising stars squeaked by and became the champions of this prestigious songwriting contest.
On the horizon for Kirby is a 4 month tour across Canada from May to August, half of the tour will be solo, and the other half with his band, which includes a festival performance at the Come Together Music Festival (Durham, ON) in May, and Tiny Lights Festival (Ymir, BC) in June, among other performance announcements that are being negotiated as we speak.
As for Hachey the MouthPEACE, he was hand picked as the MC for the Six Shooter Records / JunoFest Showcase on Fri, March 13 in Hamilton, he is doing a weekend tour out to Hollywood in May, and has been accepted to perform at the In the Soil Arts Festival (St Catharines, ON) in April, the Come Together Music Festival (Durham, ON) in May, and is touring out West in the summer, which includes a return performance to the Artswells Festival (Wells, BC) in August, among many other performance announcements to be announced soon.
