Music Submission, Faith Bardill

Artist or Band Name: 
Faith Bardill

Hello, 

My name is Faith Bardill. I'm an independent singer/songwriter from Sanford, NC.  

A little bit about me: I'm the 2018 Carolina Country Music Awards Female Artist of the Year, the 2016 Carolina Music Awards Female Country Artist of the year, and the 2015 Carolina Music Awards Teen Artist of the Year. I perform solo shows and full band shows throughout the country, as well as Belize. I am currently on Music Mafia Radio with my original “When The Dust Settles” which placed in the top 30 several weeks this year - recently placing in the #1 #2 and #3 spots. Current music can be found on Spotify, Amazon, Reverbnation, and other streaming sites.

I've attached my latest original, “Not So Broken”, recorded at OmniSound Studios in Nashville and released 04/01/2020. I am looking to get radio play and any exposure that I can get on this song.

About this song: I wrote this song for anyone who has ever felt broken. This song was written over a 3-year period because it was so important to me to tell this story right since it’s the story of my life. My mother left me when I was 4 years old. So, in dealing with the aftermath of that I became far too familiar with that broken feeling. However, I was blessed to have grandparents who not only adopted me but have supported my dreams since they first heard me sing. Through music, the Grace of God and love of my family I now know the beauty in overcoming that brokenness. This is my story and my hope is that anyone who feels broken for any reason can find a sense of strength through the words of this song. Maybe you’ll find that you’re “Not So Broken” after all. 

Please give “Not So Broken” a listen. Any airplay you could give me would be greatly appreciated. I'm open to doing radio interviews in person or via phone call or Skype. This song will be playing on 93.9 Carolina Country, Myrtle Beach, SC this month, as well as 94.7 WQDR in Raleigh, NC. I'm just looking to get as much exposure as I can with “Not So Broken” and several additional Nashville recorded songs that will be released over the next several months. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.

The Legendary Ten Seconds, August 2019

The Legendary Ten Seconds started off as the solo music project of Ian Churchward during the time when he was the lead guitar player of The Morrisons who were featured on John Peel's radio one show back in 1987. In 2013 Lord Zarquon joined Ian's music project and since then the line up has gradually expanded and various guest musician's and vocalists have helped out in the recording studio.

Most notably The Legendary Ten Seconds have recorded many critically acclaimed English folk rock albums which chronicle the Wars of the Roses and the life and times of Richard III in England during the late fifteenth century. The albums are available on Amazon and itunes and the band have donated money to a scoliosis charity from some of the income generated from the sale of their music. The CD versions of the albums are available via the Richard III Society in the UK.

In 2018 the band recorded the Mer de Mort album which was commissioned by the Mortimer History Society to commemorate the Society's tenth anniversary. It is a historically accurate album of songs which chronicles the story of the significantly important Mortimer medieval family from their roots in Normandy prior to the battle of Hastings and into the 15th century.

The band have performed several concerts for the Richard III Society including one for the USA branch in Denver last year. Ian Churchward has also published a book about the music of The Legendary Ten Seconds which is called Songs About Richard III and is available from Amazon.

“Make music because you love it!”

Well this headline sums up the philosophy of Australian indie musician, songwriter and music producer Andrew Hetherington. A total love of music is what draws him into his studio on a daily basis and occupies most of his waking thoughts. “I make music that moves my soul, that makes me jive, play air guitar and feel good”, he states.

Andrew creates 80s synth-pop songs, his style is heavily influenced by the style of music he grew up with during the 70s and 80s and is characterized by a strong melody, tight harmony and time-honored rhythms that will appeal to anyone with an ear for a classic pop song. Andrew has independently released a handful of singles and most recently a six-track EP of synth-pop songs entitled ‘In Space’, which represents his best work to date.
