We finished 10 rounds of voting! You all chose everything from the initial guitar riff to the best verse, chorus, vocal melody, bass guitar parts, drum guitar parts and synth parts. I really enjoyed this experiment and might have to find ways to incorporate audience voting again in the future. Below you can listen to how the song is shaping up as of 4/16, when the final voting round ended. I’m aiming to release the song on Spotify and other streaming services in late summer so keep an eye out for a release date!
