Third Nature WINS the John Lennon Songwriting Contest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ahhhhh I am SO PROUD of my youngest brother Merrick and his band Third Nature!!!!!!!!  Like bursting at the seams I wanna scream from the rooftops proud!!!!!!!!!  Third Nature just won the GRAND PRIZE for The John Lennon Songwriting Contest!!!!!!!!

Third Nature is composed of Merrick on keyboards, Will (my cousin) on bass and Tom on drums (Tom grew up in Lakeville, CT with Merrick and me).  They started Third Nature while attending high school at Hotchkiss.  I am so amazed to see how far they have come and how much their talents have grown over the years.  They are now the most raging band on Skidmore campus and loved by everyone who likes to throw on a pair of dance pants and get down down down:)

Their grand prize includes all these goodies: "a one-day video and audio recording session on the Lennon Bus, their music on over 17,000 movie screens around the US, courtesy of Sonicbids and over $7,500 in music gear from Gibson, Epiphone, Audio-Technica, Mackie & Avid!"  How amazing is that?!?!

PLEASE check out the announcement and WATCH the video:)

Also check out their Facebook and MySpace.  "Like" them on Facebook and check out one of their shows if you are in the area, you won't be disappointed, I promise.

I could go on and on and on because I am sooooooooooo freakin' proud!!!  I love you guys so much!!!
