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

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.

1st Place

You won 80 Steem and a 5-Pack of Steem Monster cards.

Steemit Openmic Week 91 Sami D Barid Feat Shavon Bonnie Legion Remember Old Places --- by @samidbarid

Inspiration is a most beautiful thing, especially when one acts upon it and turns that inspiration into reality! Well, that’s exactly what @soundlegion did after being moved and inspired by one of Sami’s performances. Bonnie penned some beautiful lyrics and set her melodic voice to this song in a most brilliant collaborative performance here with Sami, together rendering this inspired version of “Remember Old Places.” - @passion-ground

This is the representation of a beautiful fusion. Both talented musicians are respectfully adept and massively skilled in their departments. Shavon Bonnie Legion, our good friend and fellow open mic judge is an all around powerhouse of gifts, from singing, songwriting, guitaring and more, and Said Barid is a prolific, and highly capable original pianist composer as he is a songwriter as well. This was an extremely touching and sentimentally moving, passionate performance. The emotions are raw and tangible within the musicality of this poetic piece. I loved everything about this, from the chemistry, to the harmonies, to the melodic flows and simplistically realness of what a touched soul can express. Thank you for sharing this collaborative masterpiece, definitely looking forward to hearing more in the future. - @verbal-d

I was not ready for this. I mean, How could one's composure be ready to be stripped away by the soothing sounds of melancholic strings and haunting vocals. Two seconds into listening I was not here anymore, I had left my computer and I was transported to a different version of myself. -@meno

2nd Place

You won 40 Steem and a 5-Pack of Steem Monster cards.

Steemit Open Mic Week 91 - Mía (Original Song) --- by @ilazramusic

@ilazramusic never fails to impress me! From his comprehensive (dual language) posts to the richness of his productions, he is one of the most talented artists I’ve encountered. I sure look forward to his participation in our upcoming mega-collab! “Mia” is an engaging and entertaining song about when love/lust slips away from us and leaves us wanting. Not only must you check out his song, but you must also check out the work that he has put into the accompanying post! Bravo! - @passion-ground

Very few take the time, effort and precision to submit back to back to back complex and intricate, high quality songs, and original at that! Your musical style is so catchy, very laid back and groovy. That reggae bounce is forever intwined in the rhythmic heartbeat of your entries. Your great vocals deliver real flow and the highlights are your harmonic prowess and being able to capitalise on the momentum you build. This was a bit shorter than I would have liked, but still captivated me from start to finish. You layer with skill and transition very well. You add so much inspiration and value to our open mic community, thank you for another fresh gem and looking forward to what you bring forth next. - @verbal-d

Not the first time @ilazramusic gets to be on my list. He's a musician musician, making due with what you could only describe as basic gear, driving home the point that what you need is not the most expensive of studios, but a drive to push your art forward as if your life depended on it. - @meno

3rd Place

You won 26 Steem and a 5-Pack of Steem Monster cards.

Steemit Open Mic week 91 - Chapters Just Begun - Original Song by Darren Claxton --- by @darrenclaxton

So this is what comes out when Darren tries to squeeze in some songwriting after a long day at work. I suspect such extraordinary talent must escape when given the least opportunity. “Chapters Just Begun” is a touching composition that most of us can relate to. Darren’s performance is brilliant, his song moving, and his persona ever pleasant! - @passion-ground

Darren has been on an introspective journey for quite a while now, and we are just lucky to be along for the ride. His songwriting in my opinion has evolved, matured and his style has become really defined. It's hard for me not to relate to his lyrics, specially because just like him I'm a dreamer myself, one that is always staring back at the road traveled wondering if I made all the right choices. - @meno

4th Place

You won 26 Steem and a 5-Pack of Steem Monster cards.

Steemit Open Mic Night 91 Original Song Fade --- by @novumorganon

You are one of the most underrated vocalists/talent music aficionados and high energy/passionate performers within our open mic community, and you don't enter often but when you do, you draw a crowd. I literally wait for those weeks where you enter, because I know you will not hesitate to bring your all and unleash a focused blast of passion and lasting impression making music. You always raise the bar and have consistently showed your skill and prowess in these genres. You embodied the feeling of this original song 100% and changed the tonality and aggression at all the right areas. You rocked the deep lyricism you always pen into your compositions with intense intentions and your climactic style of singing is very effective. Thank you for sharing this powerful song with us, and ripping the veil for us to these raw and real emotions you pour out. You are openmic's very own rockstar and you wield this title without hesitation. Looking forward to your next original. - @verbal-d

5th Place

You won 26 Steem and a 5-Pack of Steem Monster cards.

Steemit OPEN MIC Week 91: (Original) SLOW by Siomara Salmerón --- by @siomarasalmeron

*Intense, deep, and with great clarity, “slow” is love. This is such a wonderful theme and composition. Siomara takes us on a short journey to remind us of such wonders. Her melodies and performance are soothing, sultry, and sensational! * - @passion-ground

I may be mistaken, but I believe this is your first original showcase of your music? If yes, or if not, it is still a very sweet sounding song, sensual and serenading. You definitely took your slow and precious time creating this wonderfully pleasing creation. The translation you provided delves into a poetic description of how love has depth and is intertwined with time, and love does strengthen as the years mature such a genuine feeling and expression. Sometimes it takes a journey with the tides of a lifelong experience to discover the power of love. Nice and slow is a great motto, never rushing into anything as the tumultuous tides of a heavy storm pushes waves crashing onto the shore. Thanks for this original gem, and sharing your gift of music, definitely looking forward to more original music from you. - @verbal-d

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

Oh my god. I am so incredibly happy about the first place. It all worked out so well with bonnie Legion and immediately! Thank you all very much for your comments and the jury for putting us in first place. I hope openmic will exist forever. I love you all. peace

Your Sami D. Barid


That was an awesome collaboration. Bonnie thought her involvement was going to disqualify you from placing this week but I guess the judges thought differently.

You playing sounds so good and her voice really added something special to it. The lyrics 'so close but so far away' was perfect considering you guys were playing on other sides of the world from each other.

Congratulations @samidbarid!


You're absolutely right. It all worked out very well. Thank you for your constant efforts luzcypher. You guys are doing a really great thing. I embrace you! And thank you for your compliment.

I first off want to apologize for not having a judges pick this week, most times I have more foresight if I am going to miss a week of picks. I had a slight whirl up this end. I am just feeling a good energy right now and happy as a clam that @samidbarid has taken this first place. It is a pure honor to get to judge open-mic and be interacted with so many talented people. I see so many people I want to work with, I have been waiting to dip in, just seeing where the energy pulls and I hope to see a lot more of these open-mic collaborations. I cant honestly think of an accurate way to explain the sheer value and power of open mic. There is fire here!! working with @samidbarid for this piece was a smooth flow from start to finish in building the official track and then creating an open-mic performance. Sami D. Barid is incredible on them key's, he flows like water with the sound, heavy with mood and emotion. This makes pulling soulful lyrics out very easy and being able to put a real emotive vocal on it drew out some great release for me. His vocal harms hit spot on and I really enjoyed the chemistry created in sound on that chorus and bridge. huge love to judges and @luzcypher cause you guys rock, @samidbarid for his awesome talent and the rest of this community of creative sound passion gods.


I love it @soundlegion! Love the collaborations, the whole point behind Open Mic when I started it.

You guys performed so well together, "so close but so far away"

Awesome stuff! You rock girl!


You speak from my soul. I could feel every word you said and thank you again for your cooperation! It is such an honor 😁

Thank you so much, all of you guys. It always makes my week when the steemit openmic community shows me so much love. I loved a TON of this weeks submissions, so I'm honestly floored that I even placed. Thank you so much, and I just hope I can keep being a part of this community as it grows and more amazing talent enters the arena. You are all extra spicy awesome-sauce. :)


Congrats again and loved listening to your week 92 entry. Great stuff.
