Starting off the New Year, this week's contestant is Kevin Shaw from Charlotte, North Carolina. I was pretty sure that I had the hidden song -- but I didn't. There were quite a few passages that overlap, but alas not enough. Which is why I was wrong. And the composer style is one that just isn't in my ballpark -- though my guess was the same as the contestant's, and he was told that he was close. But close or not, I don't think it's one I could likely have done. So, in the end, I was 0-for 2... Which means that with the new year ahead, there's nowhere to go but up!!
