This week on BEAT100.com, there are yet more musicians with a little success to shout about. Starting with first place and going by the name, 'Wild & Welsh', this two-piece team of electro-rockers finished top of the BEAT100 Original Music Video Chart with their new track, 'Get It'. The video is a wonderfully animated piece, which marries well with the track, providing some exciting visuals too. It's a cool sound that lies somewhere between Electro-Pop and 80's Chicago House and it's certainly hit the right notes with BEAT100 users, who have voted in their thousands to get it to the top of the charts. Their name, 'Wild & Welsh', comes from the surnames of both band members, Rob Wild and Steve Welsh, and they have worked together as a duo for some time. The impressive animated music video received over 13,000 views and 3,600 votes from fellow BEAT100 users and fans.
Asked to explain their sound and influences, Steve Welsh, the man behind the electronics, told BEAT100.com, “Punk, Rock, Dance, House, Hip-Hop etc… they have all been done. Music to us is like fashion, one minute a style is in and the next it's out. The styles just keep circling around and the only difference is we all get older. For us, all of that music is within us and our love for it is where 'Wild & Welsh' sound comes from.”
When asked about their BEAT100 experience, Wild & Welsh commented, “Since we joined BEAT100 it's just been amazing. We have met new friends from all over the world, found new fans and followers and it's even increased the hits to our YouTube and Facebook pages. More importantly though, it's been a very humbling experience. The support and positive comments we've received has been overwhelming. One of our new friends summed it up best when he told us that before being on BEAT100, he was on his own with no input or feedback, but since joining, he has friends supporting him, encouraging him and now he feels part of a network of force!”
Second place in the BEAT100 Original Music Video Chart, and the $250 prize, was gratefully received by Thomas Perry of Germany for his song, 'Bringing Me Home' which received over 3,000 votes. Perry’s original song and video, which tells the story of a solider, strums the heartstrings of listeners and the vocals are rich in classic rock tones and fans of the worldwide superstar Jon Bon Jovi could quite easily imagine their own hero singing this tune. He received over 10,000 views and a BEAT100 Gold Song Award for his original masterpiece.
Thomas Perry's fascination for music began at the age of five when he would secretly listen to the private record collection of one of his older brothers. The first songs he was affected by were "Hey Jude" by The Beatles and, "The Air That I Breathe" by The Hollies. At the age of fifteen, his mind was made-up. He wanted to become a professional musician. “I just love to make people happy with my music,” says Perry. “As for BEAT100, I found out about it on Facebook and ever since have thought it’s great!”
Third place and a cash prize of $150 went to a young guitarist from Dover, Nelzon Mamani. The 'one-man rock concert' has had guitar fans throughout the BEAT100 network voting in their thousands for his instrumental' guitar solo that lasts a staggering ten minutes. that said, Bolivian born Mamani, who now lives in Dover, UK has certainly proved a hit to many on the BEAT100 Music Video Network and received over 9,000 views and just under 3,000 votes for his original guitar piece. His entry also received a BEAT100 Bronze Song Award and over 2,000 comments from supportive fans on the BEAT100 Network.
