Matt Corby and Dann Hume have won the 2019 Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition for their song ‘Miracle Love’.
Dann said, “This song was a special one for Matt and I, one of the first songs we wrote together after a few years between his albums. No idea what would come, when it was finished it felt like it had always existed and we just happen to find it buried in the backyard studio of his house.”
Matt added, “We are so grateful that such a positive song burrowed into the hearts and ears of our peers and genuinely humbled by this moment.”
