What a week!

Having just returned home from photographing a songwriter's retreat, I was tickled to discover how many of you entered originals this week. It seems, as this project progresses, you're being more bold in your willingness to share your own content. I love that! I hope this trend continues!

I'm also floored by the instrumental prowess represented in this week's entries. While I'll always be moved by well-crafted lyrics, there's something to be said for the universality of wordless compositions – a certain magic in their unspoken conveyance of complex emotional landscapes.

Without further adieu...my top selections are as follows.

First

@davidsuarezms'Viaje a la paz' (Original)

Exhale...You've done it again, dear. <3 Your compositions contain multitudes – each time I hear you play, I find myself breathing a little deeper. The precious birdsong and joyful background chatter of children at play add the sweetest textures – accidental layers somehow perfectly timed. I suspect I could've listened for another half hour and not grown the slightest bit bored. Bravo!



Second

@barski'Autumn Wind' (Original)

Just....WOW! You started out with those gorgeous harmonics, then made my jaw-drop with your well-executed percussive style. You are incredibly talented, my dear. I hope you never put that guitar down; it so clearly belongs in your skillful hands. More, please!


Third

@jubei333'The Black Velvet Band' (Cover - Traditional Irish Song)

You are absolutely charming, good sir! I smiled through your whole performance, singin' along with you in the best Irish accent I could muster. LOVE IT!


Fourth

@eugelys'Tanto y más' (Original)

I shall never tire of your lovely voice. I've enjoyed your covers, but this is so much sweeter! You're quite a capable guitar-player as well. <3 Truly beautiful song – I do hope you have more originals to share with us. ;)


Fifth

@jeremyowens9501Charles Dibley's Seven Settings for Piano Solo 'Western Twilight', 'Western Night' (Cover)

Simply gorgeous – I love this so very much. I've always been a sucker for dramatic piano ballads. You've taken us on such a lovely journey with these two pieces; I'd love to hear the other five someday. Just brilliant – well-composed and expertly performed.
