Congratulations To Michael Tiernan!- ISC Honorable Mention

Today the International Songwriting Competition 2011 winners were announced. There is a grand prize which went to Kimbra for her song, "Cameo Lover" and then winners in several categories were announced. You can see and hear all of the winners here, but I wanted to give an extra congratulations to local Michael Tiernan, whose song "LA Can Wait" grabbed an Honorable Mention in the AAA (Adult Album Alternative) category.
This year, ISC received over 16,000 entries from 112 countries throughout the world, representing all genres of contemporary music. With an esteemed panel of judges including luminaries Tom Waits, Kelly Clarkson, Wynonna, Jeff Beck, McCoy Tyner, Ozzy Osbourne, Lucinda Williams, Keane, and many more, winning the ISC Grand Prize is an extraordinary accomplishment that recognizes excellence in the craft of songwriting.
You can see Michael Tiernan and his band perform at Anthology on May 19 for The Reader's Loyal Reader Appreciation night.
