With over 300 entries, we had a lot of songs to listen to! Every song is special and helps to tell a story from a unique point of view. We all have different day to day experiences, but after hearing a lot of these songs, it puts into perspective that we are all fighting this together, in our own ways.

BURL has chosen 10 songs. We will be posting each of the songs to the BURL Audio Facebook Page as 10 separate videos. We will include polls on our Facebook page where YOU will get to vote for your favorite song. Invite ALL of your friends and family to listen and vote!

Out of the 10 songs chosen by BURL, YOU will vote for your favorite song. The first round of voting begins on May 12th to May 15th. We will then take the 4 most popular songs and do a second voting round beginning on May 19th to May 22nd. We will take the 2 most popular songs and do one final voting round for the winners beginning on May 26th to May 29th. The winners will be announced on June 2nd!

First place will win the option of a B16 MOTHERSHIP chassis or a B2 BOMBER ADC. Second place will have the choice of a B1 or B1D mic pre.

First round voting will take place from May 12 to May 15.

Second round voting will take place from May 19 to May 22.

Final round voting will take place from May 26 to May 29.

Winners will be announced on June 2nd!

Often in times of crisis, the best medicine for us humans to stay sane is found in laughter and in the arts. Musicians in particular know that the best therapy during hardship is to play and create music. We would not have music like the blues, rock and roll, soul and country without hardship.

Now that we are all cooped up inside for who knows how long, the best use of our time is to channel our thoughts and feelings into our music. Though we may be physically isolated from our fellow musicians, we are still connected via the internet, and now is a time when we are pushing the limits of remote collaboration.

To help inspire our musical Brothers and Sisters, Burl Audio is sponsoring a song writing contest. As a motivator, we are giving away a grand prize of your choice of a B16 Mothership Chassis or a B2 ADC. Runner up will get choice of a B1 or B1D.

Here were the requirements:

  • Must be a new song, and must relate in some way to the present Covid-19 crisis.
  • The fidelity of the recording does not matter, it can be recorded on anything.
  • Entry must be submitted by May 4th.
  • Submit with a photo, bio or artwork of some kind.
  • BURL Audio will nominate top 4 songs.
  • Winner and runner-up will be selected by public polling posted on BURL Facebook page.
  • Videos will be accepted, but video is not required.
  • Music can be any genre and can be “serious” or humorous.
