Indie pop/rock group A Lion Named Roar has won American Songwriter and Martin Guitar’s “The Pub Deal,” a year-long $20,000 publishing contract with LA-based publisher Secret Road Music. All the entries were carefully reviewed and discussed, with the help of judges American Songwriter Editor-in-Chief Caine O’Rear and Martin Ambassador Amanda Shires. Secret Road executives and A&R staff made the final decision. The Louisville-based group has been building a strong, loyal following across the Southeast and Midwest with their emotive, driving brand of indie-pop. They’re hard at work writing for an upcoming full length they expect to release in 2015. Read our Q&A with the band here and listen to their music on Songspace.
