As a result the Steemit Music League and the decentralized audio portal @dsound have joined forces to help bring maximum recognition, feedback , and rewards for the Steemians with musical dreams, passions, and talents.

Thanks again to @prc for his support of community initiatives and helping the Steemit Music League reach its potential. If you trust and support @prc like I do make sure to vote for him as a witness here: https://steemit.com/~witnesses

With his victory in the SML Challenge, @paradigmprospect extends his lead over the battling @mindseye-music and @d-vine.

@grizzle is moving closer to 2nd and 3rd place with his finsihes in the MSL Chalenge and Beat Battle only 37 points behind a Top Three placement.

@onemedia, @hilladigahackles, and @spawnband made jumps this round sitting 5th, 6th, and 7th place respectively with only 14 points separating them.

Then we have a group Steemians behind them like @funkmedia, @lefthouse, and @simgirl moving up the ranks with their performances this last round.

As you can see we have a lot of Steemians participating in more than one contest increasing their League point total.

With 99+ Steemians already taking part in the Steemit Music League, this is shaping up to be one heck of a Season Two of the Steemit Music League o weeeee.
