Revealing the winner of our Christmas Gift Guide competition
The lucky person who received all 10 products in our festive kit list was a very grateful, Scottish, budding singer-songwriter
It seems like a very long time ago now, but back in December we ran an online reader competition to win every item in our Songwriting Christmas Gift Guide. The list of 10 products included a Tibo Sphere 4 Bluetooth speaker worth £250, several effects pedals from TC-Electronic and Orange, a pair of AKG headphones, EZdrummer 2 software, and a couple of books (including a copy of our own paperback How I Wrote), as well as a guitar tuner, wall hanger and strings.
Before the end of the year, we randomly picked one winner to receive the entire gift guide, and we can now reveal that lucky person to be Eileen Quigley, a singer-songwriter in Wolverhampton.
“I was delighted to receive items from the gift list… They are awesome,” said Eileen. “I am recording my debut EP for release late spring. Thank you so much.”
Of Irish parents, Eileen Quigley was born in the Gorbals, Glasgow and spent her entire youth on the south side of the Scottish city. Eileen writes an eclectic range of songs, and although now living on the West Midlands, her forthcoming debut EP includes songs about her hometown. Jumpers For Goalposts is due for release May 2018.
