Finalist: "Enough"
Judges Entry Evaluation Comments:  on "Enough"
 You should teach a class in intro writing, you have a real knack for it. All of us love that wicked chord change at the end of the verse lines. These lyrics ache, and create such empathy with so few and such simple words. Masterful. The harmonies reminded LeAnn of “Absolutely” (she constantly raves about that song). We just wanted a rainy day so we could stare out the window and put this song on a loop .... wonderful ... this belongs on a CD for sure. 

Song was Seriously Considered as a Finalist: "Broken Things"
Deserve Special Recognition: "Where Did You Go"
Honorable Mentions: "Wind", "All Bets Are Off", "I like Ghosts", "Lighthouse"

Songwriter Contest Judges Comments - for Andrea Speaks:

"Absolutely [song] is well, absolutely spine-tingling. I really love this song. Radio hit."

"When I’m Gone, wow, there is some songwriting. Story, mood, melody, emotion. Got it all."

"Her instrumental tracks are perfect for movies/cable series."

Great moods and atmosphere."

"Very adept at setting up images and bringing the list
ener in."

"Parlez Vous Myself, real creative spirit there. I like that I can’t pigeonhole this song. Airplay-worthy, no doubt."

"There’s a little chip there, a little sarcasm, and a little bite. Splendid contrast against these very lovely melodies. A very interesting writer and singer. Want more, lots more."

"Wow. I am in love from afar "
