SpinTunes #6 Round 1 Songs

Once again we owe Tom a big thanks for running the LP. He did a great job, and we had around 50 people show up.

The songs are now available for FREE download, and you can vote for your favorite entries as well. Many of you will be asking friends and family to support you in the popular vote. That's great, but when you do, please ask them to listen to all the songs & vote for their favorites. You can vote for up to 5 different people, so they might as well listen to everyone.

Until the round 2 songs are posted I will only allow people to download the round 1 album as a whole. But even after that, PLEASE download the entire album vs downloading just a handful of songs while the contest is on going. BandCamp limits how many free downloads I can give away, and 1 album download counts the same as 1 song download.

After the Listening party ended, some of us hung out in a Google+ hang out awhile (1) (2).  If you want to drop into our next hangout you can add me to your circles & I'll add you my SpinTunes circle.  Also, we have a private Facebook group that any song contributor to the contest is allowed to join.  I'd love to see you all there joining in on the conversations.

With 30 entries turned in for round 1, that means there will be 8 eliminations in Round 1 and 9 eliminations in rounds 2 and 3. That would leave 4 finalists for round 4. Good luck everyone.

You can find the album on BandCamp by clicking the image below:
