Sue Medley’s “My Town” is one of the entries in a nation-wide talent contest.

Sue Medley’s “My Town” Competes in CBC’s Searchlight

Voting closes April 20

Sue Medley, Comox Valley’s own JUNO Award winning singer/songwriter, has been accepted as a contestant in Searchlight, CBC Music’s cross-Canada search for the best musicians.  Contestants compete for big prizes, showcase television performances and national airplay.

Medley wrote “My Town” shortly after her returning home from living in the US for many years. “My Town” is Sue’s personal reflection on returning to her roots, celebrating her hometown memories, friends, family and the values of her precious Valley.

The chorus says it all:

Old friends all around me sweet memories,

Around every turn and every corner life is beautiful as rain.

Every minute turns to hours, into memories that stay,

Forever green forever young, this is the place I’m from,

This is My Town.


Sue invites all Comox Valley residents and friends to support her in this nation wide competition. “This is a song about all of us,” says Medley. “Living and sharing together here, in one of the most beautiful places on the planet.”

Contestants are listed on the CBC site, and advance through the completion by popular vote.  Fans and supporters of Sue can vote using the link below once per day until April 20.

“My Town” is on Medley’s nine-song CD release “Sue Medley & the Back Road Band – These Are The Days”, available on iTunes.
