Shortlists Announced! #ItsAllAboutYourTopline Songwriting Competition

Over the past seven days, we have invited songwriters to record their originally written songs on Topline, our free songwriting app, and submit for the chance of a feedback session with Nile Rodgers, Poo Bear, Jamie Scott or Giorgio Tuinfort! After more than 500 entries, 25 songs have been shortlisted by a team of Abbey Road Studios engineers consisting of John Barrett, Paul Pritchard, Alex Wharton, Dan Hayden, Oli Morgan, Chris Parker and Andy Maxwell.

The final 25 have been listed below, which are now with our panel of judges, including our own Chief Creative Advisor Nile Rodgers and three of his favourite songwriters: Jamie Scott (One Direction, Rag’n’Bone Man, Rudimental & Jess Glynne), Giorgio Tuinfort (David Guetta, Rihanna, Sia, Ariana Grande & Whitney Houston) and Poo Bear (Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran, Billie Eilish & Mariah Carey).

Each judge will now choose a winner from the shortlist and work with them during a 30-minute online feedback session. Best of luck if your track has been shortlisted!
