A regular attendee of Sue Smith’s Write About Jesus conference, Janice Crow burst onto the scene approximately six years ago when she won the writing competition that led to a variety of open doors within the songwriting community. Those opportunities included song pitches to prominent music publishers, as well as co-writes with some of the leading writers in the genre. A writing session with Lee Black and Sue Smith led to the creation of a choral anthem entitled “The Name,” as well as the song “Amazing God,” that would go unrecorded for several years. In 2015, the song found a home with Triumphant Quartet, who took it to #1 on the Singing News Chart, and was awarded Song of the Year by the Singing News Fan Awards. With her increasing momentum, Janice was a natural fit into the Daywind roster of exclusive staff writers. To bring the story full circle, she signed her contract with Daywind Music Publishing during Write About Jesus, exactly six years after she won the songwriting contest.
“Janice Crow has a natural talent for writing a unique idea set to a commercial tune, and her persistence in developing that talent into a craft is most impressive,” shares Rick Shelton, VP of Daywind Publishing. “We are so excited to commit our service to Janice and her songs as she joins our publishing family.”
In addition to Janice Crow, Daywind Music Publishing has signed songwriting agreements with a number of talented writers this year, including Lee Black, Tim Lovelace, Devin McGlamery and Brandon Sharp. Award-winning writers Dianne Wilkinson, Sue C. Smith, John Rowsey and Belinda Smith have all extended their relationship with DMP.
