Wed, Jul 8, 2015@10:54AM | comments

Back in May Rush's rights management company Ole (Ole aquired the Rush catalog last year) teamed up with Indaba Music to launch a Rush cover song contest where the winner would get $5,000, 2 tickets and a meet & greet for Rush's August 1st show in LA, and more. The contest ended up receiving over 150 submissions and earlier today Indaba announced the winners, all three of whom submitted covers of Rush's Limelight. The winner of the grand prize was Matthieu Romarin of Montpelier, France with his moody, electronic cover of Limelight. Winning the 2nd place prize of $3000 and a Rush swag pack was Jacob Moon of Hamilton, ON (remember him?), and taking home the 3rd place prize of $1000 and a Rush swag pack was Kenny Schick of Boulder Creek, CA. The contest's judges consisted of representatives from both Ole and Anthem/SRO. Here's Matthieu Romarin's winning submission:

In addition to the cash, tickets and meet-n-greet, Romarin will get a meeting with an Ole Media Management Creative Rep, a limited edition Rush Fender Squier Bass, and a lyric video of his Limelight cover on Ole's YouTube channel.
