Open mic night starting up at The Tarn in Yeadon

I will be running an open mic night at the tarn pub in Yeadon starting from Thursday 13th of October. It will then be on every two weeks on Thursdays after that.

There will be a drum kit for jammers.

To keep updated, follow me on twiter @marcmischief or on facebook at “Marc Otway – Musician” (or just click the Facebook logo on the top right hand side of the website)

A rip-roaringly good time will be had by all!

‘Let Go’ does well in this year’s UK Songwriting Competition

This year I entered one song in the UK Songwriting Competition. Here it is:

Let Go by MarcOtway

It received a score of 8 out of 10 from the judges. Which meant it was very nearly in the finals for the competition. A score of 9 is for the finalists and 10 for the winner.

The UKSC judges include many top industry names like top producer Stuart Epps (Elton John, Robbie Williams, Led Zeppelin, Bill Wyman, Paul Weller, Oasis), BRIT Award winning producer, songwriter and musical director Simon Ellis (S Club 7, Britney Spears) and the legendary producer, musical director and arranger Richard Niles (Paul McCartney, Kylie Minogue, Boy Zone, Take That, Mariah Carey, Cliff Richard).
