Simon Stanley has been selected as one of the final three for the APRA Best Children's Song.
Simon Stanley is the pseudonym of Cy Winstanley – songwriter and frontman of Tui Award Winning and APRA Silver Scroll Award nominated duo, Tattletale Saints. Recorded in Nashville, Marley Sitting on a Pumpkin Seed is Cy’s first foray into Children’s Music and was inspired by the birth of his niece Marley. Cy wanted to create something that captured the surreal beauty of her home in Central Otago and also teach her about the crazy banjos and mandolins that have become part of his life in Tennessee.
We wish him all the best!
