Local songwriter just happy to get recognition

Local songwriter and small business owner, Catherine Manna appreciates the nomination and is determined to continue practising her craft.

Local songwriter and small business owner, Catherine Manna, may not have taken home the hardware (or whatever the internet equivalent of a trophy may be) but she still appreciates the nomination and is determined to continue practising her craft.

“I didn’t win but I got out there and that’s a good start,” said Manna. “There are over 15,000 artists on that site (Independent Music Channel) and many more than that on ReverbNation, which is connected with it. I’m still honoured to have been nominated which puts me in the top five of the two categories.”

Manna says she will continue writing and submitting her work to the web radio sites now that she’s seen the kind of notice she gains by putting her music out there.

“On ReverbNation I’m trending now, in the singer/songwriter category I’m in the top 20 in Canada on their site,” she said. “Every day I’ve got four or five new fans on my account page on the site and I’m getting feedback from other songwriters and producers who are interested in working with me.”

However, she’s not resting on her laurels now that she’s gotten a taste of the exciting life of the world wide web’s independent music industry, there is always room for more on the web.

“I’m always working on something and I’ve pulled out some older tunes that I’ve been holding back on, I’ll be submitting them,” Manna said. “Hey, on the ReverbNation site I’m ranked number one singer/songwriter in Trail.”
