Song wins first place

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

WEM­B­LEY singer-song­writer Lori Greco has won first place for her song in the spir­i­tual cat­e­gory the Aus­tralian Song­writ­ing As­so­ci­a­tion Awards.

Greco won the award for her song The Courage You Lack, which she says is an up­lift­ing song rather than a re­li­gious song.

As well as the win, five of her songs made it into the top 10 of each cat­e­gory from more than 3000 en­tries. “I am pretty proud of that,” she said. “I was ec­static to learn that I was also re­warded for song­writ­ing ex­cel­lence by my in­dus­try peers.

“Th­ese songs are from my lat­est al­bum called No Or­di­nary Girl, which was funded by fans from all around the world and avail­able on iTunes and www.lori­greco.com.”

Greco said the in­ter­net was a new fron­tier for mu­si­cians and made it eas­ier to build a fan base than tra­di­tional meth­ods.

A pi­ano teacher at New­man Col­lege, she said be­ing the only WA mu­si­cian to win first place at the awards was an hon­our.
