It’s hard to believe, but here we are: one year into a pandemic that has drastically changed the world. Looking back over the last 12 months, facing unprecedented adversity, we’ve seen incredible perseverance and creativity, especially in the arts.

Last April, BURL Audio launched a songwriting contest to support and inspire our musical community. We were blown away by the number of submissions, and simply floored by the quality of songs. It was a complete inspiration for us in a very dark time.

We hope that we are in the final stretch of the lockdown, and as things begin to slowly open up, we believe we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Today, BURL Audio is proud to announce another songwriting contest for 2021 and we’re giving away over $9,000 worth of prizes.

We have a group of industry professionals to judge the songs, and the winners will be announced by May 10, 2021.

The grand prize will be our “High-End Recording Solution” – a B16 Mothership with a  B4 4-channel Mic Pre and ADC, and B22 4 Channel DAC and Control Room Monitor and your choice of Motherboard.
