Congratulations to Never The Bride

The two songwriters who wrote and produced DSB’s new single ‘The Living Tree’ are attracting further accolades.

They have just succeeded in getting to the finals of a major American songwriting contest, the ISC – INTERNATIONAL SONGWRITING COMPETITION.

It’s a great achievement for them. Shirley’s favourite rock group are outstanding, talented musicians, increasingly recognised for their super songs.

Catherine Feeney (better known as Been) and Nikki Lamborn are two of the nicest Rock Chicks you could meet. It’s no wonder everyone gets on well with them!


I’m delighted to add this personal message from the chicks:

“We haven’t entered anything like this before but a friend told us about this very cool contest in Nashville…

Long story made short, we have two of our songs in the final out of 15,000 entries!

The main categories are judged by some VIP industry judges, but there’s also a People’s Choice and we’d love it if you could give us your vote…

Love to you from Nikki and Been”


Although the main prizes are judged by a panel of VIPs, the Public Choice category can be influenced by all of us. The winner of this category is decided by an online vote and it would help Nikki and Been a lot if you could take a few moments to vote for them


Vote for your Favourite Song
Songs are listed alphabetically, and you can listen to the song by clicking on the song title. You can vote for one choice each day. Voting will end on Feb 28th 2007 at 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time (USA)
