So happy that my song "Echoed" Light" has received honourable mention, placing 11th in the folk/roots category of the 2022 Indie International Songwriting Competition.  
I know the production is not a factor in their judging, but I want to honour my friends who worked on recording this song:  Mark Ripp (Engineer, co-producer, guitar), Bob Cohen (guitar), Jeff Dunk (bass) & John Toffoli (drums).

My "Echoed Light" CD is now available at Stock Home Design, 3060 W. Broadway in Vancouver BC.  This beautifully creative store in the heart of Kitsilano is part art gallery, part decor & gift shop.  Pop in if you're in the Vancouver area!

It's always fun to have a song included in a radio show, this time out of New York.  My song "Echoed Light" will be included in this Sunday's radio show, the Hootenanny Cafe Singer Songwriter Showcase.  Songs were chosen around the theme "new beginnings". (Now there's a theme we can all relate to!)  Airing on WTBQ.com on Sunday Sept. 25 at 9 pm EST / 6 pm PST.
This same show will also air the following Thursday and Friday at 10pm EST (7pm PST) on bellbuckleradio.com.
After that, you should be able to listen to the show anytime on hootenannycafe.com

Comments from Listeners:

"Meg you are such a brilliant storyteller thru your songs.  While I love your first CD, this one speaks to my heart...It feels like you wrote my life.  I haven’t been moved by an entire CD like this ever before."
     -Brenda Gravelle, Actor/Singer

"Really well written songs and the production is perfect. Congrats on such a wonderful collection of works." 
     -James Clark, Songwriter/Recording Artist

"Great album, Meg!  Wow, very beautiful.  Just got your CD in the mail today.  Really love Glass Heart.  Very powerful love song....Hooked Me Like a Habit, Day of Grace, Silence & Snowbanks and Let's Walk this Road are really great.  Shine a Light On Us is a really beautiful tribute to your brother.  What a lovely mourning song.  When are you going to visit Nashville with it all?"
     -Michael P. O'Hara, Waking Dream Productions

"I love your new cd. The lyrics, the arrangements, the great playing of all the musicians, the variety of tunes, your voice--always so true--it's just wonderful."
     -Mary Lynn Murphy, Novelist/Poet

"Sings like an angel, writes from an intelligent heart."
     -Wanda Mae Anderson

"...your straight-ahead style and how you use rhythms to provide unexpected tension/release moments.  It's intriguing and very subtle. Your songs are singable and poetic, and I can easily see why so many musicians want to perform with you, and collaborate on your songs. Echoed Light is a good body of work which harmonizes together like a painting or scenes in a play."
     -Becca Anderson, Songwriter/Recording Artist

"In today's mail, Meg Tennant's new CD Echoed Light. I am lucky to know a whole bunch of talented musicians. Meg is among the best. Great lyrics, beautiful voice, an amazing team of musicians and singers, and damn fine arrangements. What more could you want in a CD?"
     -Neil Muscott, Photographer/Writer
