Local 15-year old Richmond borough resident, Elizabeth Pass, has won a prize worth £1000 after entering a Young Songwriter's Competition launched by Powerjam.

In an effort to encourage local young musicians to stay creative and motivated throughout the pandemic, Powerjam offered young songwriters throughout Richmond borough a chance to professionally record and release a song on all streaming platforms including Spotify and Apple Music.

Elizabeth's winning original song, 'Now I'm Falling' will be released on all streaming platforms on 1 December on the Powerjam Recordings label, a label that allows young bands and musicians at Powerjam to retain full copyrights to their original songs.

Various teen bands at Powerjam have collectively achieved 225,000 streams of their recently released singles, and many of the young musicians at Powerjam have had their songs played on Radio stations such as BBC Radio 6, SW London's Riverside Radio, River Radio and West Middlesex Radio.
