Jailhouse Payback wins a nail biter!  It was so close that the popular vote had to be used as a tie breaker.  All 4 competitors did amazing, but there can only be 1 champion, and the reign of Jailhouse Payback has officially started.

I want to give a big THANK YOU to all the competitors, judges, guest judges, shadowers, fans, Tom & Joe for hosting the LP's, Matt for the album art, and anyone that had anything to do with this contest.  None of this is possible without the participation of all you wonderful people.

Normally SpinTunes has a contest every 6 months.  One that starts around January, and another that starts around June.  SpinTunes 12 will break from this pattern, and will probably start in January of 2017.  HOWEVER, we will be hosting a new songwriting contest starting around July of this year.  I'll post details about that at a later date, but keep your calendar open this summer.  Make sure you follow @SpinTunes on Twitter for contest updates. Between Song FightNur Ein & various other projects, there should be plenty to keep you busy until SpinTunes #12. 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
