by | May 17, 2016 | Open Labs, Open Labs Artists, Open Labs Events, Stagelight

The inaugural month of the Stagelight Monthly Music Contest II has come to an exciting end. The votes poured in until the very end. 14,000+ total! Song submissions varied in style and length. We mulled over every entry over the last few weeks, leaving no stone unturned. Today, we announce the outcome—first place winner, second place winner, and the remaining top ten. We couldn’t be more proud of our artists and hope you like them just as much!


First Place Winner: Rob Grounds
Song: Ease My Scream

rob-groundsRob hails from Farmington, MO where he’s been working hard and creating music non-stop. He’s versatile, and on top of his game. His song, Ease My Scream, stood out for its quality, appeal, and originality. We think Rob has a bright future ahead of him and couldn’t be happier to connect him with one of his idols, Chester Bennington!

As part of the first place prize package, Rob will receive this sweet setup—the Lenovo Ideacentre Y900 series computer with the ThinkVision Pro2840m 28-inch 4K LCD Monitor, powered by Intel. Also, a Blue Microphones Yeti Pro, and a Blue Headphones Mofi. Aside from technology, Rob also gets a Linkin Park Underground 15 Super Bundle with archived merchandise.

Congratulations Rob, you deserve it!


Second Place Winner: Frozen Soundscape
Song: Between Tides

between-tidesFrozen Soundscape is a two-man collaboration effort comprised of Thomas Fiorilli and Alex Mascart. Both Thomas and Alex are from the UK and make music independently. Both are up and comers whose interests are as varied as their music. Between Tides caught our attention for its ambitious use of different sounds and transitions.

As part of the second place prize package, Frozen Soundscape will receive Lenovo Ideacentre AIO 300 23-inch All-In-One Computer and a Linkin Park Underground 15 Membership Bundle.

Congratulations Thomas and Alex, we can’t wait to hear more music from both of you!
