We are thrilled to announce that Dave Matthews—singer-songwriter, guitarist, and founder of Dave Matthews Band—and Grammy Award–winning songwriter Holly Knight have joined the Musical Exchange Songwriter Search listening committee, along with acclaimed South African singer-songwriter Vusi Mahlasela, Wayne Kramer (founding member of the Detroit rock group MC5), Vicki Peterson (founding member of The Bangles), and singer-songwriter Kay Hanley (lead vocalist for Letters to Cleo).
The Musical Exchange Songwriter Search gives selected young musicians, ages 13–17, a chance to perform for renowned songwriters and receive feedback from these artists. In addition, six students will be selected to travel with their peers to South Africa in December to participate in the Route 40 Music Festival and to open for some of the country’s top rock bands.
