|In February this year, emerging artist SFX (Sade Frame) won the JLSC “Love Song” weekly contest with her infectious banger, Dating Isn’t Fun. Since then, the 17 year old has been on a roll, signing with artist manager David Sonenberg and DAS Communications, and collaborating in the studio with hit writers Toby Gad, Rock Mafia, Rune Westberg, and Kevin Thrasher/Curtis Peoples. |
“As soon as I heard it, I was excited about the song and immediately sent it to David and the team at DAS, who saw her potential as a songwriter and artist,” said Brian Rothschild, co-founder and executive director of the JLSC. Over the years, the JLSC has identified such stars as Meghan Trainor, Gaby Moreno, Elise Goldsberry and others.
Entry fees from the contest help to keep the non-profit John Lennon Educational Tour Bus recording studios on the road to provide music education and creative outlets for young people to express themselves, often tackling tough issues related to social justice, gun violence, and peace.
