Songwriting Competition with Jony Rockstar

Songwriting is a tricky old game to get into; not only does it take a lot of talent to write a song, but you also need valuable contacts if you want to get writing for the top artists. To celebrate the launch of our new Songwriting Course, us here at Point Blank have set up a pretty swanky competition and are offering you the chance to bag some prizes that will give you a kickstart in your songwriting career.

Using a host of tracks and stems provided by renowned top songwriter, Jony Rockstar (who has written and produced for top ten artists including Sugababes, Amy Winehouse and Alicia Keys), you can write a song of your own over the backing track, arrange the parts in whatever order you want and remix before the laying down the vocals; the song is your oyster, so to speak, and you're free to be as creative as you wish.

So if you fit the bill of lacking the industry contacts and possess the talent to write amazing music then this competition is a tailored fit.

Jony himself will be listening over each and every track to decide who will get the chance to spend a day with him in the studio... oh, did we forget to mention that? Furthermore, the winner will also receive a free place on the Songwriting Course, taught by Jony Rockstar, as well as a yearlong free subscription to Soundcloud and the opportunity to have your music signed to Point Blank publishing.

Deadline for track submissions is 1st November so you have plenty of time to knuckle down, write a song and impress Jony with your talent. Backing tracks and stems can be heard below, but for full details and guidelines on how to enter the competition click HERE.
