Thanks for your support! A&R and your views/ votes add to the buzz with which they pick the final 10. The final 10 will be on a compilation of the 30 finalists chosen from cycles 1,2 and 3, as well as a meeting with A&R at EMI headquarters! Something that could help any artist & more.
So please take a few minutes and make a difference, thanks! http://www.moartist.com/LAM and or text my keyword LAM to 79999 (it's free on most mobile devices)

Originally we put up the full version of Scientist just as a test for feedback of the song online. Within days the song gained over 25,000 listens and won a spot in the semi-finals to our surprise. Currently Scientist has a shocking 80,000 plus listens and feedback unexpected. You can help keep this going by passing along the link to a few (or even 1) of your online friends! It would make a huge difference and possibly win me a trip to the 2011 Grammys! http://yobi.tv/yobising/contestant/8969/Lindsay/scientist-original-c-lindsay-alward Thanks a million!
