A talented songwriter has won a full scholarship to a music college in Kilburn after scooping an annual award.
Uri Sade has been given a place on a £5,000 songwriting course at the Institute of Contemporary Music in Dyne Road, after scooping the Shure Songwriting Award.
Now in its fourth year, the pioneering and innovative award, sponsored by the Institute and audio electronics company Shure, is open to talented, aspiring singer/songwriters.
Mr Sade, who beat off more than 80 rivals, will also receive £500 of Shure equipment after being picked by celebrity judge Frank Turner.
Mr Turner, who is currently touring the world with his new album ‘Tape Deck Heart’, said: “The entries were amazing and the standard was really, really great and it was difficult to pick a winner.”
Runner-up Anna Carow who wrote ‘Brand New Summer Dress’, will receive a partially funded scholarship and Shure goodies.
