Congratulations to our very first Musikarmageddon SOLO winner: Tom Murray (pictured)
16 singer-songwriters competed in head-to-head battles, each round knocking out half of the contestants until they were down to two: Tom Murray vs. Kevin McCove. Each of the finalists performed 4 original songs throughout the evening. A panel of local music experts awarded Tommy the win and a prize package valued at $600 – including a feature article in Out&About Magazine, a free recording session from Ray Gagliardino/Studio 825, and gift certificates from The Grand, Accent Music, and Chelsea Tavern.
Kudos to the Audience Choice winner: Kathy Layfield
Immediately following the first round of play, the audience placed their votes for favorite artist and Kathy Layfield 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 2016!
