K. T. Tunstall chooses the 2008 Shure Creative Award winner

Best-selling artist K.T. Tunstall recently judged the final of an innovative new award for aspiring singer-songwriters – the Shure Creative Award, which is jointly sponsored by Shure, the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance and Play Music Pickup magazine.

Applicants were asked to upload a video of themselves performing an original song to www.shurecreativeaward.com which following a round of public voting and judging by a panel of experts resulted in a final ten being passed on to K. T., who chose the overall winner.

We are now delighted to announce details of the winner - Kimya Razavi, a singer/songwriter from Birmingham. Kimyas original and inventive song, Stupid Cupid, can be viewed at www.shurecreativeaward.com/kimya-razavi. KT commented the following after making her decision:

It was really a difficult task choosing a winner from such a diverse range of talented entrants to this competition. However, I was really taken by the different stylistic influences that Kimya is exploring, and most of all I was struck by her lyrics. She's obviously not following the crowd in either area. Hopefully she'll now have chance to grow a little forest of unique, original material.

As a result of winning this competition, Kimya now has the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to professionally develop her talent and skills with a free place on the Institute’s fantastic one-year Higher Diploma course (worth £4,950). As well as enjoying this great opportunity to learn, Kimya will also benefit from the many opportunities at the Institute to write, collaborate and perform in live London showcase events in front of key industry people. Kimya is of course delighted with this, and had the following to say:

Im extremely grateful to the competition organizers for giving me the fantastic opportunity to develop my skills in singing and song writing at the ICMP. This is a once in a life time opportunity that I cherish and value enormously!

Special mention should also be made of the two runners-up, Daisy Borthwick and Amy Leeder, who both received the opportunity to study at the Institute for significantly reduced fees as well some fabulous prizes from Shure, including such items as a Beta 58 microphone and a pair of SCL4 professional earphones and an SM58 Vocal microphone.
The Shure Creative Award will now run as an annual competition, so watch the website www.shurecreativeaward.com for details of the 2009 competition – your chance to win a course of study and develop your network in London at one of the world’s leading schools of contemporary music!
