ESA, the renowned award for the international music creator community, was handed out for the third time this year and honours outstanding music creators. The prize: A release with an international marketing campaign!
Since the Award Show at the Musikmesse Frankfurt had to be cancelled due to Covid 19, the ESA-organizers had to come up with an alternative idea: In an online award ceremony, ESA host Finn Martin came together with Tom Keil (GM of Ultra Music Europe and Head of A&R) and Leonidas Chantzaras (Senior A&R Universal Music), as representatives of the judges committee, to announce this year's winners, that they had been looking for since the start of the submission phase back in December 2019!
"This year it was really as close as never before, because there were so many good songs", says Tom Keil from Ultra Music. "But in the end we as judges are very happy with their decision and believe to have found really special songs out of thousands of entries that have a real chance on the market", adds Leonidas Chantzaras (Universal Music).
Together with the winners, the ESA team is now starting to prepare the releases and we are very happy that SONGMONK is on board as label and marketing partner. Be excited for the great songs that will be released soon!
