SGL Week 7 Winners Announcement!

in sgl •  29 days ago 

Here we are at the end of week 7 and what a brilliant week it was, we had one of our largest number of entrants so far. What's more so many of those entries were just freakin amazing in quality and we really couldn't be more thrilled.

Also this week we had two Communities Choice judges in the running, @ylich still won out with his selection. But the amazing @eugelys also made a selection for @esthersanchez's awesome performance, leaving a lovely review so be sure to go check them out as well!

One of our favourite part's of this contest is the Communities Choice, not only because it gives a voice to the community at large. It also shows how much our amazing musicians support one and other, which I is why I will mention that anyone can get involved in the Communities Choice.

That means you don't have to have entered, commented or have any official musical knowledge and just know what you like. This is not only a way for our entrants to support each other, but also for steemians and groovers in general to get involved and have their say on which entry they loved most.

So be sure to check out all our entrants each week, judging is open for Communities Choice for both all of the entry time - but also during the judges selection time, meaning there is 96 hours to vote and have your favourite entry win!

But this week things have finished and our winners have been selected, so without further delays. Here are the winners of SGL week 7!

"Young Barski, I am impressed yet again with the beautiful sounds you bring out in your guitar with your fingerpicking style and percussive effects. I'm looking forward to hearing more from you."

@joseacabrerav

@krystle

"Peter you have some serious talent here my friend, I am honestly blown away by the skill being displayed at such a young age here. Your playing is simply put incredible, you really just smash this out and it's all so effortless as well.

Just amazing to see someone, when it appears the instrument they play is just an extension of themselves. The playing is just perfection, you never miss a note, you create an amazing flow through all of the tempo changes, you have a great mix of volume to emphasize specific moments more.

Really an incredible performance that is only more amazing when you take your age into consideration, I was absolutely enthralled by your performance. I just couldn't get enough, your engaged with the song on an emotional level and you actually perform it - even though at times it all just looks to easy for you.

I love the percussive elements you add through playing, its not just strumming and plucking there is full use of the acoustics of the guitar and moments where there is a beat being highlighted on top of the music.

I am fast becoming a massive fan of your music, you really do have an incredible gift. It's really just a breathtaking performance and I loved every second of it, I really look forward to seeing and hearing more in the coming weeks."

@isaria

"Such a beautiful song. Your voice is so angelic and I love your fingerpicking style."

@krystle

(The shorter version of the review, for full review see the judges top 5 post)

"Well I had absolutely no option this week, you were first from the instant I heard you. This is just such an unbelievable original entry, I was shocked last week to learn you did originals (still not sure if I just missed this over ages, or you are branching out and sharing your own music is new). But either way I am just absolutely delighted to hear you entries of late, they are truly incredible on every level.

Your entries over the past few weeks have been absolutely brilliant, but these last two you took things to a whole new level. Your vocal control is just phenomenal, you display such an intense vocal range and the best part is how you choose to implement it.

Those high notes.... wow well ok they are stunning, there is such a beauty to the composition and implementation of the melody you have created. I want to sing along with you but feel like my atrocious attempts at mimicking Spanish would tarnish the beauty of this song.

Your playing is the perfect accompaniment, you never overpower your vocals and it is there to highlight the melody - but also has unique and interesting elements of its own. This is just a nice sound for the ear, if that makes sense - its just enjoyable on a base level without dissecting and analysing it.

The lyrics being translated, I always assume there will be some clunky-ness in the message that's lost in translation. But I was entranced by the melancholy lyrics, that so perfectly suited the sweet sadness of the music and melody."

So there you have it another amazing week for SGL, with so many brilliant performers no wonder our judges are having a bit of a hard time with their selections. But I will again mention that due to circumstances beyond his control @pechichemena got his selections and post out, but could not include reviews. Also the lovely @zipporah has her post coming out tomorrow, but again her selections were included and in on time so our results could go ahead.

Speaking of a massive thanks to the entire SGL team, @ausbitbank, @isaria, @zipporah, @paintingangels, @pechichemena, @joseacabrerav, @krystle and @swelker101.

A quick reminder that submissions open Thursday 1 am CST / Thursday 6 am UTC and will close at Saturday 1 am CST / Saturday 6 am UTC, remember you can record in advance and schedule your post's to be sure you submit within the open window. Until next time keep grooven!

Please check out our amazing artists that performed this week and show them some love <3
