Sarah McMullen's “Now Or Never” Named August
“Best Song Of The Month”
By Dale Kawashima
Sarah McMullen, a promising, pop singer/songwriter based in Kansas City, KS, has won the SongwriterUniverse “Best Song Of The Month” Contest for August, for her song “Now Or Never" (co-written by Jonathan George, Andrew Lane & Kendra Pruitt). This song is included on current 3-song EP called Skyscraper, which she released independently in July (2011).
“Now Or Never" is a well-crafted pop uptempo song, which seems ideal for contemporary pop radio airplay. The recording has a modern, keyboard-based arrangement, and features a strong chorus section. McMullen sings this song with energy and emotion, particularly in the chorus. "Now Or Never" was adeptly produced by Jonathan George & Andrew Lane, with Lane playing the keyboard tracks. Notably, George is a vocal & performance coach and writer/producer who has worked with the Pussycat Dolls and Dream. Lane is a writer/producer who has worked on the High School Musical and Hannah Montana soundtracks, and worked with rock band Paramore.
