The coolest thing about Open Mic is it brings the Steemit community together and that is the whole point of this project.
You can also meet up with us on Discord at The Steemit Local Musicians Society
Steemit Open Mic Judges
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.

"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
*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
*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
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
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.
