SpinTunes #8 Champion: Jenny Katz

SpinTunes #8 Champion: Jenny Katz
Runner Up: Ryan M. Brewer
3rd: Jutze
4th: Edric Haleen


Congrats to Jenny, who is now our new #SpinTunes champion!  I'm so glad I contacted Jenny a few years ago after finding her YouTube channel. Her music has been outstanding in SpinTunes, but it's been even more of a joy to get to know her a little.  She's an asset to the community in more ways than 1.

As the current champion of SpinTunes, you have the option of judging SpinTunes #9.  When I start preparing for the next contest, I'll e-mail you to find out if you plan on wielding the gavel or not.

The other finalist should hold their heads high.  They faced 4 challenges, conquered them all, and created 4 new songs for the world to enjoy.  Well done.

Thank You
Competitors, judges, guest judges, shadowers, fans, Tom for hosting the LP, Matt for the album art, and anyone that had anything to do with this contest.  I just happen to be the guy that makes this shit up as I go, but none of it is possible without the participation of all you wonderful people.

The next contest will probably start in late June. Make sure you follow @SpinTunes on Twitter for contest updates. Between Song Fight, Nur Ein & various other projects, there should be plenty to keep you busy until SpinTunes #9. If you've completed at least 1 song for SpinTunes, you are also welcome to join the SpinTunes Facebook group.  It's a good way to keep in touch, and we post about related news in there as well.
