Eagle Wind Sound Studio’s initial Facebook Studio giveaway came to a close in late December 2017. In total, they received 54 entries from a four state region, with an entry from Germany rounding out the submissions as the social media-based contest managed to find its way around the world.

A panel of nine judges participated in the selection process to determine the winners and runners up in the categories of Best Artist and Best Band. The winner in the Best Artist category is Bryce Merritt, with Levi Bradford as the runner up. In the Best Band category, Bucket Funk was selected as the winner, and Chimney Choir placed as runner-up. The four artists receive a prize of studio time in the destination recording studio located in downtown Winter Park.

Because they received such a tremendous response, they’ve created a second charter “Invitation only” event on February 17th where where nine more artists will perform before a small group of ticketed guests to compete for a final, fifth prize of studio time. The guests will participate in the  voting process to select the final contest winner.

The finalists of the “Second Chance” contest are local entrants Weston Smith, Greazy Jenkins, James Steinbacher and Charlie Alley, along with Shovelin’ Stone from Austin, TX, Kenny Perkins from Denver, Isaac Aragon from New Mexico, Andrew Hoyt from Des Moines, IA and Leo Bradford from Texas.
