Pigfarmer Jr.

Pigfarmer Jr. is a SpinTunes, Song Fight, Nur Ein & FAWM veteran.  In other words this guy makes a lot of music.  Thankfully he decided (without any pushing...) to put his own spin on everyone's favorite song.

Wil Whalen

Years ago I got whitelisted on Zack Scott's private Minecraft server & ended up making a lot of new gaming friends because of it.  One of the first people to get whitelisted on that server was Wil.  He was never all that active on the server, so we never got to know each other much.  Years after joining the server Wil got involved with a project trying to get Kickstarted.  It looked like a cool project, and even though the project wasn't music related, I knew Wil was a musician.  There was no cover reward mentioned on Kickstarter, so I contacted him through Zack, and we created our own Kickstarter reward via e-mails.  I donated to the project & we got a cool new "Today's The Day" cover.

Lords Of The Trident

When I stumbled onto the Lords Of The Trident's Kickstarter I was blown away by their pitch, and then their music.  It didn't take long for me to decide to back their project at the cover song level.  After their project was funded they did an amazing job of keeping their backers updated throughout the process of recording the album & fulfilling all the rewards.  It's a shame that everyone on Kickstarter doesn't show the same level of appreciation & respect to their fans that this group does.  Mad props to them for that, and for the amazing music they make.

PS:  Bill House did an amazing job with his contribution to the cover as well.

Kristen Nelson

I was browsing Kickstarter one day & saw Kristen's project.  She was talented & made a good pitch so I decided to back it.  Her new album came out in January, and it's pretty freaking awesome.

Gemini Blvd.

It's time for a cover that's more than a little different.  The University of Central Florida's award-winning co-ed a cappella group takes on the cult classic.

Gift of Music 2014-15

Over at SongFight!, Niveous is conducting his 11th Gift of Music sidefight. It's like a Secret Santa for songwriters,You pick 4 songs you would like someone to cover. Others do the same. You get play Santa and create a cover song from their 4 choices. And we all open the song presents together!

The real winner has been the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, who receives money donated in the name of the 'winners' of the contest. This year I'd like to help boost the funds up to make Santa extra cheery. So if you have some spare change, you can drop it in the PitchIn box above. Thanks and I hope you join up to play Santa as well. Song choices are due before November 29th to enter!
