The Silver Scroll, New Zealand’s most prestigious song writing award, has been handed out tonight at the Auckland Town Hall.
The winning song is "Everything to me" by Lips whose name is actually Stephanie Brown.
She said she had no idea she was going to win.
“[It was] terrifying. I know everyone says that but I didn’t think I would win so I was a bit nervous. But yeah it was awesome as well.”
Brown played keyboard for Annika Moa and Opensouls and is now in New York producing her own music.
“I always wanted to be a songwriter and I wrote a little bit here and never had the courage to put anything out there. I moved to New York about five years ago just to try do it over there because it seemed somewhere really hard and I’ve been working on it ever since.”
She says it started out as a simple song.
“It started off as an instrumental as a couple of keyboard lines that I tried to vocalise. I liked the sound of it, I worked a bit on it trying to get as much space as I could in the music because I really like that.”
Brown will release an album in November.
