#MyVoltsMusic13 – even more music!

Thanks so much for sharing your music – I’ve loved listening, and really enjoyed the diversity! Piano improvs, filthy grime, trad irish and ambient minimalism – I’ve heard it all over the last few days.
Power supplies aren’t exactly glamorous, but it’s so great to hear what we help creative people create.

We’ll announce the winner of our #MyVoltsMusic13 competition tomorrow, and of course send everyone who shared a tune their fiver vouchers for myvolts.co.uk.
