SpinTunes #5 Champion: Governing Dynamics

Runner Up: Edric Haleen
3rd: Ross Durand
4th: Mariah Mercedes



Congratulations Travis! You survived all 4 rounds, and you are now a SpinTunes Champion. I wish I had a big fancy prize to give you, but in SpinTunes it's the musicians who provide the prizes. You've done more than your share with your 4 entries. We've given out free t-shirts to past champions (OOOOOoooo fancy), but you'll be getting a little something different (if your heart is set on the t-shirt just let me know). I'll e-mail you the details.

ALSO, SpinTuner David Ritter has offered to provide you with 1 year of free premium web hosting!  He'll even transfer the site over from the old host if there is one.  I'll get you David's contact information if you need it.

You've been a constant in SpinTunes since we started, and I hope to see you in SpinTunes #6 as a judge or competitor. (expect an e-mail in a few months about judging)

ALL the finalists did a great job. You all earned your way into the finals, and I could have been happy with any of you being the SpinTunes #4 champion.

Thank You
Not only to the finalists, but to everyone that signed up or participated in SpinTunes. Judges, shadows, Tom for running the LP, Jules handling my poll, fans who listened & voted...

I'll be updating the "SpinTunes Hall Of Fame & Records" page sometime in the near future. In case anyone is interested in knowing more about how the stats have changed from 1 contest to the next. 

The next contest will probably start around January. Make sure you follow the @SpinTunes feed for contest updates. Between Song FightNur Ein & various other projects, there should be plenty to keep you busy until SpinTunes #6. Keep an eye on my Spintown blog, because I normally post about those type of things there.
