2016 Musikarmageddon SOLO

Congratulations to Musikarmageddon SOLO winner: Robert Tomlinson (pictured)

16 singer-songwriters competed in head-to-head battles, each round knocking out half of the contestants until they were down to two: Robert Tomlinson vs. James Brant. Each of the finalists performed 4 original songs throughout the evening. A panel of local music experts awarded Robert the win and a prize package valued at over $600 – including a feature article in Out&About Magazine, a free recording session from Ray Gagliardino/Studio 825, an appearance on WSTW’s Hometown Heroes, and gift certificates from coveted Delaware locals!

Kudos to the Audience Choice winner: Chris James

Immediately following the first round of play, the audience placed their votes for favorite artist and Chris James took that crown, along with a valuable prize package of entertainment and dining.

The Grand and Out&About would like to thank all of the singer-songwriters who participated and our fabulous judges for sharing their time and critiques. We hope to see everyone out to support local music again for Musikarmageddon SOLO 2017!
