May
2, 2016 – – The International Songwriting Competition (ISC), considered
to be the most prestigious and selective songwriting competition in the
world, has announced its 2015 winners, selected from 18,500 entries
from 120 countries worldwide.

The overall Grand Prize is awarded
to the gifted songwriter/performer Skrizzly Adams for his song “Tipping
Point.” Upon learning that he won the overall Grand Prize, Skrizzly
said, “Songwriting is my passion in life, so winning ISC is like winning
the Heisman trophy!” Adams joins an elite group of Grand Prize winners,
including Vance Joy, Kimbra, Gin Wigmore, Kasey Chambers, and more.

Hailing
from Westfield, New Jersey, Skrizzly Adams is a songwriter who is
difficult to pigeonhole (critics have described him as Bruce Springsteen
meets Kanye West). 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. More recently he
just completed his first full tour with Lissie He is currently working
on his debut album.

Winners were selected by a panel of judges
which included: Kesha; American Authors; Pat Metheny; Lorde; Sara Evans;
Bastille; Bill Withers; Keane; Danilo Perez; Hardwell; Gerald Casale
(Devo); Joy Williams (The Civil Wars); Keb’ Mo’; Sean Paul; Afro Celt
Sound System; Craig Kallman (Chairman/CEO, Atlantic Records); Dan
