Special thanks to @soundlegion, @krystle, @verbal-d, and @passion-ground for help judging the contest this week. Great job guys.

Steemit Open Mic is not about winning or losing, it's about building a connection on Steemit through music. Watching the collaboration happen online between musicians who played and met on Steemit Open Mic is very rewarding and many of the people who play and post earn some nice rewards for playing a song.

For many, it's easier to get some Steem in your tip jar by playing for Steemit Open Mic than it is to play music on the street.

Steemit Open Mic Week 67 Story Charlemange Take Me To Church Hozier Cover --- by @storycharlemagne


"I am so pleased to have got to listen to another entry with the incredible voice of @storycharlemagne. This guy is a real treat for the steemit openmic community, bringing us a awesome cover song. Take me to Church by Hozier is heavy tune and you gotta get that vocal just right to really make it come through and @charlemange knocks it out. Woo Just a sheer pleasure to hear such quality in playing and singing. Everything stands out." - @soundlegion


I just love the divine vocals you have weaved throughout this rendition, I don't normally go for slowed down versions but the additions and adaptations you have incorporated - highlighted the lyrics in a new way for me, it was similar to the original but it could stand alone independently.. - @krystle


2nd Place


Steemit Open Mic Week 67 Original Fireman By Me --- by @mrprecious

*This was just such a beautiful and unique sounding song, with absolutely outstanding vocals - you really blew me away and that was before, I heard the brilliant falsetto you had hidden until the end.

What an amazing song, it has a great energy and vibe and when coupled with that beautiful playing on the guitars - well it was absolutely sublime, to watch and hear.

Your composition was just perfection, I love the structure of the music the slower, staggered approach - then the beautiful full sound, when things pick up as you continue.

Those super sweet high notes, that then just get smashed by some serious power coming up after - it really was an absolute joy to hear this amazing song.

You guys have won me over, I think you have a new fan cause this was just awesome - thanks so much for such a brilliant song and entry.* - @krystle


*" The song is straight Fire Man!! First off I love the look and the outfit is kickin. You both play fantastic and the guitar work together build just beautifully. The lyrics were awesome in this song and you got a damn good voice coming through, wow! We are getting some pipes on openmic! Hello @mrprecious top quality live performance and original piece" * - @soundlegion



3rd Place

Steemit Open Mic Week 67 Say You Won T Let Go Cover By Me Etemi --- by @etemi


*Yet another amazing entry with simply outstanding vocals, the whole performance was just everything I want in a song.

The guitars are beautiful and fill the sound out perfectly, but it's the vocals I just can't get enough of - you have managed to take a rather complex song and take it up another notch, making it insanely brilliant.

Then adding the harmonies at the end was absolutely wonderful, I just loved the energy you had throughout and the clear connection to the lyrics and emotion of the song - it felt like you felt every word as you sung.

This is not an easy song, but you made it sound like it was little to no effort - I just love your sheer pure talent, you have an amazing gift and you share it with such a passion it's just wonderful to see and hear.

You not only have insane vocal range and absolutely amazing vocal control, even better still you have some serious power behind it all - when you get going and you feel it, it's simply divine to hear.

Thank you so much for joining us, I am absolutely loving what your bringing so far - can't wait to hear more from you all soon.* - @krystle


4th Place

Steemit Open Mic Week 66 Secret Place Original Song By Eden Michelle --- by @edenmichelle

She states within her official entry and post - that this performance of hers is far from perfect, however, I respectfully beg to differ! I think that @edenmichelle’s performance here is just about as perfect as one could possibly hope for! I truly love her simple and organic engagement with “us,” - the listening public. It’s just her, - there alone, - all by herself – laying it all on the line – and if I say so myself, she does quite an incredible job of getting her underlying points across - along with of course, the sheer beauty, seductive simplicity, and pure unadulterated enjoyment of a damned good song by any other measure - that she has so gracefully bestowed upon us this week! This, among numerous other reasons, is why I’ve given @edenmichelle my number three spot this week. You go, girl! I’m lovin’ this every which way from Sunday! - @passion-ground


5th Place

Steemit Open Mic Semana 67 Limbo Olvidar Original Patrocinado Por Pfunk Y Luzcypher --- by @juliolunar


Here, our esteemed “Julio” shares with us one of his very first original compositions as a solo artist. I must say that his performance here really stood out, and took me by surprise quite honestly! Straight-away, from the moment one hit’s “play,” Julio takes firm control of the feelings that he wishes to convey amid this awesome composition he’s titled, “Olvidar!” I so appreciate as I’m sure you do as well, all of the back-tracking and instrumentation that he’s provided us here in order to make his musical masterpiece truly come alive for all of us. Because he has accomplished this, and so much more, that’s why I’ve given my first spot among this week’s entrants to none other than our brother, Julio – he’s clearly earned it, and it shows!. - @passion-ground


Here's a screenshot of the prizes transferred to the winners this week.

Thanks so much @luzcypher and the rest of the judges.. Am so happy you dont know what this means to me.. Am giving twice of what I gave for my week 67.. Watch out for me... God bless you

Congratulation once again @etemi and welcome to Open Mic.

I am so honoured, to be recognised as one of the best two this week, Indeed I am overwhelmed. 😂😂😂😂😂

Wow am so grateful for.. Carrying third for the first time congratz to everyone that made top 5... Thanks @yourmercury I cant Thank you enough

I told u it would be fun

Oh my goodness! Thanks so much for the kind words and support.

There were a lot of awesome performances this week so I am honored to be up there alongside.

Being a part of steemit and the community is motivation enough to keep showing others what I can do. I feel this urge to push myself harder and really explore some other musical and artistic avenues.

Winning is awesome and I cannot say that enough but what drove me here and what I would like more than anything is to develop a following.
Anyone into progressive music & stories (in general I guess) may enjoy the projects I am interested in. Please feel free to follow me and I will try my best to entertain!

Thanks again steemit fam.

  • Story

What a great variety of music there was this week. I think I listened pretty much to all of them, or at least a part of each one (it can't all be to everyone's taste ;) )

Great selections here, it's very difficult and subjective to try and judge songs for competitions, their are so many variables, but my first place would also be your number one here, @storycharlemange, he absolutely blew me away with his finess in both the funk and feel, absolutely outstanding I thought.

The number 2 slot @mrprecious would have also been in my top 5. Out of that many entries, drawing 2 of the same top 5 is really good going and further testament to not only the quality of the musicians, but also the overall judging system you guys have. I've really enjoyed watching the process. Fantastic job guys!!

Congrats to all the winners, look forward to seeing and hearing more. :)
