Artists House Music, a non-profit educational music venture, has revealed the winners of its inaugural demo evaluation contest. Three winning demos were chosen to be critiqued by Artists House Music's panel of experts. The demos will be posted online alongside advice from music industry experts.

Ines, Mathien, and Trench Town Oddities captured the top prize, despite varying in skill level and experience.

Ines, a Los Angeles native, combined elements of rock, techno, and hip-hop to drive her entry "Makin Me Sick."

Mathien, the one-man band and brainchild of Southern Illinois University student Chris Mathien also captured top honors. Mathien's entry, "The Hard Way," blends soul and R&B elements to create a magnetic track. Mathien's debut album "Head, Heart and Hands" is expected later this year. Mathien acted as producer on the album, in addition to providing all instrumental sections.

Trench Town Oddities also garnered top placing with its entry, "Workin' Again". The Ontario, Canada-based group formed in 2005 and dropped its first album in July of 2007. The four-piece band fuses Reggae elements and traditional southern folk sounds into a polished track that has been making inroads on the college radio scene.
