Meet the Finalists!

A selection of some of our finalists

Last week we announced the Semi-Finalists of the VoiceCouncil Singing Competition Winter 2016.

10 of them have made it through to the final round, where there’s a big prize at stake; the winner will receive up to $1000USD worth of music gear!

Meet Last Year’s Winner

Noah Derksen on his guitar

Noah Derksen won our competition one year ago. His career has since gone from strength to strength, with the release of his second album. Read our catch-up with Noah last week.

Our finalists have had to submit a brand new video for us, which we will be using to make our choice for an overall winner. We asked them to record a song for us – the catch being we wanted it to be a unique interpretation; for example:

  • Sing it in minor if it’s usually in major
  • Sing it slower or faster than the original
  • Sing it in a different genre/style to the original

Here are the finalists who were brave enough to take on the challenge.

Meet the Finalists

Saša Jakelić

Final round entry
Be my love | Mario Lanza
This is a great old sincere love song that I always liked and wanted to sing. Here it is done with acoustic guitar trio. Also I wanted to do it in ‘not so classical’ way balancing on pop, musical and crooner vocal style.
Original entry

Julie Curly

Final round entry
Let It Be | The Beatles
We wanted to underline the gospel vibe with the arrangements (keys, organ), the folk/country (with the added harmonica) and a twist (with the electric guitar). I’ve changed some of the phrasing in my singing to express a more gospel attitude.
Original entry
La belle époque

Emily Erhardt

Final round entry
Helpless | Hamilton (the Musical)
This song is actually a duet so I changed a few parts so it makes sense as a solo. I also slowed down the rap part of the piece. There are a lot of words in this song so singing through the whole piece without making a mistake with the words was a huge challenge.
Original entry

Ale Acusticamente

Final round entry
Anna (Go To Him) | The Beatles
I’m a Beatles fan and this is a song that I love and created a new acoustic version. The rhythm, the tonality, the time and the way of singing and imposing the voice have all been done differently to the original, because I sang like a pop tenor. I did it in my favorite style of playing and singing.
Original entry
Musica Somente Nela Paulinho Moska

Gail Attard

Final round entry
House of the Rising Sun | The Animals
I heard it on the radio and I loved it and I think it suits me. I changed the key because it was too low and I added more dynamics that suited me.
Original entry
If I Ain’t Got You

Matilde Paul

Final round entry
El mareo | Bajofondo y Gustavo Cerati
Gustavo Cerati was a very important musician from Argentina and it’s a really beautiful combination of electrotango. I am singing as well as playing the bass and the harmony, giving the song an electronic sound.
Original entry

Andrea Nies

Final round entry
I’m The Only One | Melissa Etheridge
I didn’t change much, but I think I made it a little more intense and country-fied by speeding up the tempo and adding a steel petal guitar.
Original entry

Chloe Pandora

Final round entry
Duke Ellington’s Sound of Love | Mingus
The original was an instrumental with a bass, sax and piano playing the melody. My version is different to the original in that takes on a more didactic, musical-theatre/classical hybrid approach by making the vocal the main feature. It’s shorter and there is less focus on instrumental improv throughout.
Original entry
Sweet Revenge

Ingrid Beaujean

Final round entry
Echo | Incubus
I chose this song as it is one of my husband’s favorites. First I changed the key, (it was in Em and I put it in Am), then I improvised a little in the guitar solo and at the end of the song.
Original entry
Lullaby of birdland

Jayna Brown

Final round entry
What Is Love | Haddaway
I feel like this piece showcases a different side of me than my last video. I slowed it down and added some ad-libs to the usual dance music that would be there.
Original entry

She is deserving because she is a true original and has a voice/message in a generation of sound-a-likes. You can’t teach that- you are simply born with it! Go, Emily!!!
