Newfoundland Radio Star onto the Nationals

Trevor Bennett, who is the vocalist/songwriter for a band by the name of Catcher from Newfoundland and Labrador, has won the regionals for the Canadian Radio Star Songwriting contest.

He is written up in his college newspaper here. Many great Canadian musicians/artists come from Newfoundland and Labrador (Pamela Morgan, Ron Hynes, Great Big Sea, etc...) and Bennett has a chance at the national prize based on his song Catch Me If You Can. The song can be found on Catcher's MySpace site linked above. As the article points out:

Despite the ideal climate for self-indulgence, Bennett remains level-headed and focused in his desire to share his creative work with anyone who is willing to listen. "This is the kind of thing that could get my songs to the kinds of people who'll like them, outside of my immediate sphere of influence," said Bennett. "This island can be a tough place to grow from, so the exposure from this contest, and whatever comes of that, is welcome."

Let's congratulate the regional winners (I wasn't one of them) and wish all the participants the best of luck to, not only win the contest, but to make the right connections to get their music heard... and in Bennett's case, to do the Rock proud!

May the Muse be with them...
