Congrats to MerryGold!

We received over 500 submissions for 'Race to TRI' from all over the world (and yes, we listened to ALL of them!) We chose our top ten favorites, you voted, and chose Merry Gold as the winners of the race!

MerryGold is a bluegrass, folk, americana band from Placerville, California. Their whiskey-soaked folk/bluegrass songs take listeners back to simpler times and portray a rawness that embodies the pioneer spirit of the Wild West.

Check out their winning track:

"We are honored and excited to spend a day at TRI!! We were up against some great bands that are worth checking out - especially our friends Achilles Wheel. We are looking forward to getting some of our new material recorded and hope to expand our network in the Bay Area!"

Merry Gold will be coming in for their 'TRI experience' session later this month. They will also receive two M80 mics, thanks to our good friends at Telefunken. Keep a look out for more pics and clips of their studio session later this month.

TRI is always on the look out for new artists and great music. We like to think we have our finger on the pulse of what is exciting and innovative in the music industry today. We had a lot of fun using our platform to share some of our favorite submissions and honorable mentions. We look forward to hosting more things like this in the future. Thank you to all of you who participated.
