We also want to say a very sincere “Congratulations” to the top scoring songwriters for our 2023 Songwriting Contest! The style of songs range from Old Country/Western to very modern Hip-Hop.

The CD has been mastered by COMBO Board member and master sound engineer Clark Hagan, and is being replicated by local company CODA, Inc.,

We ask these songwriters to check their calendars as we’ll be calling soon to confirm them being able to perform on our Songwriters Showcase being held on Saturday, November 18th at Odde’s, 9975 Wadsworth Boulevard, Westminster, CO from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
