#shantyonthelab winners

Congrats Gray! We’ve found our favorite take on the viral sea shanty, and it’s truly special.

To The Sea’ is a beautiful original sea shanty-inspired folk track where Gray pours out his emotions and demonstrate his lyrical prowess. A story narrated by a sailor’s son who did not want to follow in father’s footsteps by being a part of the sea, after the sea seemed to have taken his father away from him and his family. A tale of pain, reminiscence and regret.

Runners up:

2nd: Tomáš Halagan
3rd: Error_
4th: Queenie B Killa Crazy🌹🥀🖤

#forkthisforward winners

If you’ve seen this month’s contest, you’ll already know who the winner is for this round. We chose Bart’s instrument-drenched hip hop entry as our backing track for February’s #forkthisnow contest.

Juicy Goodness! Bart‘s newest forkable banger is a perfect mix of a trap beat and guitar player. The blend of guitars and Trap opens up a whole new world of musical possibilities, perfect for BandLab regardless of genre to fork and explore. Go forth and #forkthisforward!

Runners up:

2nd: MJ ᴮᵉᵃᵗˢ in MJ Beats Productions 
3rd: YodaGee 🇬🇧 in THE JEDI TEMPLE
4th: Talentless Zigs

Congratulations to all the grand prize contest winners and all runners-up for their incredible winning entries!

Make sure you don’t miss out on February’s contests! There’s still time to get your entries in!
