"I want to take a moment to say how inspiring it was for me to put this presentation together and both albums.   Qrittix and myself are just blown away at the incredible talent here on steemit.   The music community is overflowing with artists ready to share there sounds with the world and boy are we listening.     Congrates to winner @onetruebrother you had song after song that were just fantastic and knowing you were writing these within a weeks span is just incredible.   I also want to give a shout myself to @luisferchav who has just continuously blown my mind watching him on openmic and your songwriting entries were brilliant.    I enjoyed listening to each and every one of you as this final project came together.    There is a surprise music video at the end of the presentation video from one of the songwriting contestants.   I wish you all nothing but success, great happiness and the opportunity help move the world into a better place one song at a time, each one of you is already doing that, as my life has been enriched by all of your beautiful songs. Huge props go to @meno for sponsoring this event with a new guitar, @krystle @passion-ground and @meno for there great work judging the event and pulling everything together, also shouts to OpenMic leader and Songwriting Challenge host @luzcypher and also openmic judge @verbal-d."  Shavon Bonnie Legion

Woah! This is incredible!!!
Just the fact that you guys took the time to go through all the entries is astounding, but you actually mastered side A and compiled all of it in two albums, that's awesome!!! Huge shout out to @qrittix for the mastering! You rock!!!

Plus that video at the end of the post is mesmerizing to watch, I'm almost done watching the whole thing!! :D

Thanks for this! I'll be downloading this NOW! Cheers!

Nice work for the Open Mic Songriters Challenge team @luzcypher @krystle @meno @soundlegion @passion-ground @verbal-d Good job.
Can't wait for the next season...

Cool! Didn't know this was happening! Thanks for all your hard work and generosity towards the music community on steemit!

True hero ;)


@jaybird I am a true fan this end. I think you are one of the best songwriters on this platform. I would have loved to put your songwriters challenge entry in the unplugged album but we couldnt get a cool audio pull off of it. This was just a last minute decision to put this unplugged album together and try and add a final touch of hype for everything that went down. Im glad we got to get a clip of your in the video and I really hope to see another track from you on the Volume 4 Steemit artist music compilation, im behind but will be getting submission posts ready for that any time. Just had to let it be known here how fucking rocking you are and love all your material. Also that shame I couldnt pull any of your video audio.


Hey B, no promlemo, I read the post and figured that was the case. I'm glad that you were able to get as many as you were able to and put that out as soon as you guys did.

Appreciate the kind words and supportiveness you've show me & of course, let me know when vol 4 is underway.

So far the only reason I have turned any of my original demos into further recording works is because of SAMC lol.

Thanks for doing this Bonnie I really enjoyed watching it!
Thanks everyone for the inspiration and positivity.


talk about inspiring my friend, your sounds having been filling my house last few days. some powerful @onetruebrother moments around here. big love to you

This is a wonderful project. I really love the initiative. This is encouraging talent development on the blockchain.
Kudos to the team that powers this.
