Attention HSA Members,
Congratulations to the HSA June 2022 Song of the Month Winners, Jay Harris for his song titled IT’S A GOOD WORLD and to Tim Bentley and Josh David Walker with their song titled CARRY ON. Honorable Mention, for the song with the 3rd highest number of votes goes to J.R. ‘Rose’ Rosenberger and C. L. Milburn for their song titled TRUTH IS I LIED. You can hear the songs for the June monthly winners on the Home Page of our website at www.houstonsongwriters.net. Also, a recap of the June Meeting is shown on the Home Page under Monthly Meeting Information.
A special thanks to the 17 members who participated in commenting on the songs and the 24 members who voted. In hopes of increasing the number of members who comment on the songs that are posted each month, we have extended the time for commenting to 28 days. REMEMBER, even if you do not pay dues, you may still comment on the songs as long as you are registered on the HSA website. HSA is dedicated to the art and craft of songwriting where songwriters can learn more about how to write a song; develop their own songs and help others develop through constructive feedback by commenting online or at the Face-to-Face meetings; meet new friends and collaborate with new lyricists and musicians. Every member has something to offer, no matter what stage they are in as a songwriter.
