The challenge for Round 1 is to write a sincere song.  A song that is important to the artist, about something they value and care about.  The song also needs to be mixed so it is vocal centric.  Something that highlights both the vocalist but also the lyrics of the song.  All songs will be exclusive to the VPC site.

The compliation album from the first conests is here.  Give it a listen as well.

    It’s always nice to discover people who are following the nerdy culture that I embody in my life. Hope you enjoyed round one and weren’t too dismayed by the vocal mix on Kobotobo!
