Village Kid have won the grand prize in their category at the international "John Lennon Songwriting Contest", for their song "Colourful Girl in a Black and White World". Village Kid have won a US$6,000 prize package, including US$5,000 of studio equipment, and are now in the running for the US$20,000 "Song Of The Year" award. The song can be purchased online.

The John Lennon Songwriting Contest was founded in 1997 by Lennon's wife Yoko Ono, in collaboration with a music management company based in New York. Judges included Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas, Natasha Bedingfield, renowned producer Lamont Dozier (who has worked with such artists as Marvin Gaye, Phil Collins and Kanye West), and Jesse Harris (who wrote Norah Jones' award winning song "Don't Know Why").

The song, taken from their debut EP released on iTunes in June this year, was co-written by keyboardist Michael Tan and guitarist Matt Bartel. "The song's lyrics were based on relationships that are falling apart, and the reasons that people choose to stay in them", said Tan, 28, who also works as an Audiologist (view original article). The EP was recorded in Perth with producer Anthony Cormican, who has also produced the WA band Birds of Tokyo, as well as international acts such as Boys II Men (US) and Michael White (UK).

Village Kid, formed only 9 months ago, has already supported bands such as The Black Sorrows and Thirsty Merc. Their debut EP "Colourful Girl" comprises five songs which present a unique mix of alternative rock, funk, and classical. Despite the broad range of musical influences, Village Kid have masterfully crafted their own unmistakable style. Alternative funk-rock songs "Something's Going On" and "Ill", a love song "Munich", and dark, mysterious and occasionally-heavy rock ballads "Last To Leave" and "Colourful Girl
in a Black and White World" have captivated even the most discerning of music listeners. The recordings contain performances from members of the West Australian Symphony Orchestra (WASO). They have had favourable reviews from local media and music critics, in a review of Village Kid, Drum Media magazine wrote "These guys have some real talent for playing and writing" (Issue 186, May 2010).

Village Kid are currently working on their next studio project which is scheduled to be recorded in December 2010. The band plan to continue down the same path of combining passionate songwriting with strong musicianship and performance.
