The International Songwriting Competition (ISC), a prestigious and selective songwriting competition, has recently announced its 2015 winners. Atlantic Records recording artist Skrizzly Adams takes home the award with his single "Tipping Point.” Upon learning that he won the overall grand prize, the New Jersey native said, “Songwriting is my passion in life, so winning ISC is like winning the Heisman trophy!”
Candace Avery, Founder and Director of ISC, states, "The song overwhelmingly stood out to the judges, winning praise for its melody, arrangement and passion. Moreover, the judges applauded his other songs, confirming that he is indeed a songwriter with a depth of talent. His talent embodies everything that ISC is looking to honor, and we are excited to see what the future holds for this promising artist.”
Skrizzly Adams is a songwriter who is difficult to pigeonhole. Originally applying his musical talents to the art of producing, he only began to pursue singing professionally a couple of years ago, releasing his self-produced debut project, Stains, a year later. The EP quickly garnered the attention of several high-profile figures including blogger Perez Hilton and urban super producer Boi-1da, ultimately landing him a major label deal with Atlantic Records. In November 2015, Skrizzly joined Elle King on her North American tour, and he recently wrapped up a club tour with Lissie. He is currently working on his debut album.
Previous ISC winners have included: Vance Joy, Bastille, Passenger, Kate Miller-Heidke, Lindsey Stirling, Gotye, The Band Perry, Kasey Chambers, Gin Wigmore, King Charles, Kimbra, Gregory Porter, Omar Sosa, For King & Country and many more.
