We had a few words with long time musician, Stan Simon, about this years entry into the CBC Searchlight contest.
Hammer Records: Is this the first time you’ve entered into the CBC Spotlight Contest?
Stan: No, I've entered twice before. I think it's a great contest and an
equally great platform for people to hear new music and for musicians to
spread their own.
Hammer Records: Which of the prizes are you most excited about?
Stan: Nothing in particular. I think I would be humbled to win anything.
Mostly, I'd like to gain new listeners and meet new folks along the way.
Hammer Records: How would you describe your music to a brand new listener?
Stan: I attempt to make my listeners feel like part of a scene in a film,
adhering to a dark theatrical tone shaped from traditional genres.
Hammer Records: What made you pick the piece of music/video to enter?
Stan: It's new and I have a video for it. Plus, I think it's a good tune!
Hammer Records: If you could send a message to the judges, what would it be?
Stan: I hope you enjoy what you hear and thanks for listening.
