I did another post today for Aux’s Whisky Rocks competition, where they’ve tabulated the pubic votes and we have a top three.
I spent a good portion of this morning going through all the entries in this year’s Whisky Rocks competition; taking a second pass, looking for those hidden gems and creative videos you’ve all sent along. Last week, I highlighted a few things I liked, as well as a few “No No’s” that I noticed in the submissions. All in all, a lot of musicians put themselves out there for everyone to see, hear and judge. Well now, public voting is complete and you’ve determined the top three.
Paramount, performing their song “Buildings” to a collection of live and rehearsal footage. The vocalist has some power there, couldn’t you see them doing justice to a cover of Jefferson Airplane’s “Somebody To Love”?
Steve Costello performing the song “Lie Machine”. This Sudbury native has already shared the stage with The Trews, plus the video looks slick and the song rocks pretty hard. I can see why these guys made the top three.
Dray Dunk performing “Lie To Me”. Of all the submissions, this song takes the cake for the vocalist showing the most emotion in the video. Its pretty powerful and could be great to see how they could pull it off live.
Who do you think will win the competition?
All three will be opening for Theory Of A Deadman on Nov. 7th, at the London Music Hall. But one lucky winner will receive the Grand Prize; a Gibson Les Paul Studio Edition signed by Theory Of A Deadman plus a $5000 Long & McQuade Gift Card. The lucky winner will have been picked by a panel of judges considering commercial applicability, song composition, musicality, image/style and star and performance factor.
Stay tuned for the winner and good luck to the top three!
