Darn! Fell at the last hurdle.
Missed out on the fRETfEST final. I can't really argue with the people who made it in - they're all interesting - but there are a couple that I wonder what the judges see in them. I take comfort in the idea that very few of the great bands ever won a comp ... but I've learned a heap and met some great people.
I'm not too disappointed because I realised quite early that I'm a fish out of water in that company - singing straight pop in a folky singer-songwriter space. Some of those guys are really awesome and my tip to win it is Matt. He's got an amazing voice and an really great guitar technique. Best wishes to all of the contestants.
Of course, this frees me up a bit to do other tings that need to happen - like get gigs and make contact with fans.Posted by Hughie at October 9, 2007 10:13 AM
