Salute Music Makers competition

Music Makers: “One small challenge: just write the best song anyone has ever heard!”

The success of the Music Makers competition permits the removal of its entry fee allowing free access for all entrants

Salute, the organiser of the Music Makers competition launched in April, has decided to refund the £20 per track entry fee and have made the process totally free for up to four tracks to be entered. This step to hand back money to thousands of songwriters is clearly a very rare occurrence with any enterprise, but once again highlights the importance of the songwriter to the Salute ethos.

“The level of support and encouragement we have received from the industry since launching our competition has been truly extraordinary,” said Feargal Sharkey, who is spearheading Salute Music Makers. “Thanks to the support of our partners, Salute is now in the enviable position to make entry absolutely, 100%, free. Yet again Salute is leading the way in providing proper support and encouragement for the next generation of great British talent. Now is your chance to win a £50,000, no strings attached cash prize and entry is free. One small challenge: just write the best song anyone has ever heard!”

The ambition of Salute to make the entry free within the second year, but the investment from business partnerships has led to this aim being realised within weeks of its launch. Subsequently, the competition has been opened to a broader audience in Salute’s pursuit to find the next best UK grassroots music artist.

Entrants to the Salute Music Makers competition stand the chance of winning £50,000 in cash, while the other five shortlisted finalists will each receive a £10,000 cash prize.

    This soul been on this road feels like so long and still got allot more to go.
    Sometimes surprised that I haunt died at a younger mans prediction
    behind these eyes you’ll find allot more then you’d imagine.
    this ride is far from over I don’t walk like this for nothin
    and I’ve been awalkin a long time a coming
    You looking for a fight you might not like what you get into 
    confestion of sins to our contous 
    we hold the key to self awareness
    and fighting our contous ain’t the way to get there
    where angles fall lost there way to fly
    ashamed or scared where foregivness is easy to find. 

    I got an old soul I’m on this long road
    I’m taking it along for a ride.
    Sometimes I’m surprised I’m alive
    It gets harder to trust got to keep my gaurd up. If i were you I wouldn’t push.    I got an old soul I’m on this long road
    I’m taking it along for a ride.
    Sometimes I’m surprised I’m alive
    It gets harder to trust got to keep my gaurd up. If i were you I wouldn’t push

    You looking for a line
    for your pride
    cowards not what you’ll find
    lies won’t hold up your pride for ever  sometimes ill lay awake just with the peace I find. 
    eyes still.  
    in self awareness    I get up for you.  converse
    with the Deamonds of the day
    our thoughts as the tricks of the devle play. 
       as adults we never really stop growing nothing lables me narrowing me in words when there not meant to
    if there is answers maybe youll find em in the stars ,

    I got an old soul I’m on this longroad
    I’m taking it along for a ride.
    Sometimes I’m surprised I’m alive
    It gets harder to trust got to keep my gaurd up. If i were you I wouldn’t push.     I got an old soul I’m on this long road
    I’m taking it for a ride.
    Sometimes I’m surprised I’m alive
    It gets harder to trust got to keep my gaurd up. If i were you I wouldn’t push

    Freedom to do anything I put my mind to
    you wraped up in what can and cant be done
    when just doing it ain’t no problem. 
    Walkin a line.    difined by the gates of heaven.    
    making mistakes is part of the journey foregiveness the anwers to questions of so many
    Like me forgiving you forgiving myself know god forgives us all keeping my morals up suits me fine from there.
    Were we’ve been I don’t really care.

    I got an old soul I’m on this long road
    I’m taking it along for a ride.
    Sometimes I’m surprised I’m alive
    It gets harder to trust got to keep my gaurd up. If i were you I wouldn’t push
    I got an old soul I’m on this long road
    I’m taking it along for a ride.
    Sometimes I’m surprised I’m alive
    It gets harder to trust got to keep my gaurd up. If i were you I wouldn’t push

    SONG WRITTEN BY LINDSEY ARLENE BROWN AKA LINSABELLA ARIELLA
     
    Don’t you hear that sound it echoes like a drum,
    Can’t you feel that joy rising from deep in your bones,
    That’s what it’s like when Christmas comes ’round,
    YOu get that feeling you just can’t shake,
    Don’t you feel it shaking the ground like an earthquake,
     
    Don’t forget about Christmastime, 
    Don’t forget it and you won’t regret it,
    It comes once a year and it’s finally here,
    So jump for joy at the end of the year,
    So give a big cheer because Christmas is here,
    Aloud, aloud, aloud, aloud, aloud, Christmas is here today, 
    Yay, yay,
     
    It’s the sensation you can never escape,
    Once the joy of Christmas invades,
    We all watch our home Christmas video tapes,
    We can’t help but to remember and share so much laughter,
    And show the world we all care,
     
    Don’t forget about Christmastime, 
    Don’t forget it and you won’t regret it,
    It comes once a year and it’s finally here,
    So jump for joy at the end of the year,
    So give a big cheer because Christmas is here,
    Aloud, aloud, aloud, aloud, aloud, Christmas is here today, 
    Yay, yay,
     
    These words are idolized: Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night,
    Don’t keep Christmas waiting,
    Hey yes you the large and the small in the light,
    Keep your Christmas spirit high,
    Grab someone, just have fun and start decorating,
     
    Don’t forget about Christmastime, 
    Don’t forget it and you won’t regret it,
    It comes once a year and it’s finally here,
    So jump for joy at the end of the year,
    So give a big cheer because Christmas is here,
    Aloud, aloud, aloud, aloud, aloud, Christmas is here today, 
    Yay, yay,
     
    Don’t forget about Christmastime, 
    Don’t forget it and you won’t regret it,
    It comes once a year and it’s finally here,
    So jump for joy at the end of the year,
    So give a big cheer because Christmas is here,
    Aloud, aloud, aloud, aloud, aloud, Christmas is here today, 
    Yay, yay,
     
    What else can you do, you’re already here,
    Let’s applaud the start of a new year,
    Give a big cheer for Christmas,
    Babies dance it up it’s Christmas,
    When Christmas is on the line,
    Party it up ’cause it’s Christmastime!
