[singlepic id=424 w=320 h=240 float=right]Inland Sea have been triumphant in the 2011 International Songwriting Competition.

The US-based competition is judged through many categories by celebrity judges such as Tom Waits, Ben Harper, Jerry Lee Lewis and Robert Smith as well as industry professionals.

INLAND SEA took out first prize for “All Fall Down” in the Unsigned category.

They also gained an honorable mention in the Pop category, along with fellow Brisbane band THE HONEY MONTH for “Foliage”. Both songs were from the bands’ debut EPs.

Inland Sea debut will be available on Plus One Records from June 11 at all cool retailers, both real world and digital space

We would also like to congratulate fellow Brisbane Indie label Sugarrush and MY FICTION for placing third in the unsigned category for their killer tune “Every June”.
