For a first time behind the scenes look at the top 5 winners of the Bongo Boy TV Indie Music Video's from around the world competition, I have to say, it was like going to the fair and being told you would be able to go on all the rides. Here's why:
When you begin a show listening Australian born and Los Angeles based BP Major - 'Calling All Recruits', you are literally setting the stage in your own living room for an all night dance party. This artist is on serious fire and shows no signs of stopping with electric beats that are sure to get your body moving and stay locked in your head long after the song ends. The video only amplifies this with a creative combo of mysticism, mystery, glamor and brilliantly lit neon effects. It's been a long time since I have been inspired to review a video that I wanted to view more than once, and BP Major is the whole package.

Second winner, is Phoenix, Arizona born Nik West featuring Orianthi with her music video 'My Relationship'. It's clear from the start that this young talent's true relationship is with her bass guitar - her playing is impeccable! This young lady's talent is video presence is charismatic and full of combustible energy which transcends throughout the music video. Her overall 'look' is refreshing and
almost reminiscent of a young Tina Turner with a bad girl twist topped with a powerful kick in vocal ability. Definitely one to watch.

Third Winner is Full Body Tones from Lexington, Kentucky with their video 'The Rain' which is a song and video full of energy; clearly, this is a band who enjoys what they are doing and it shows in their enigmatic and upbeat video. The band, comprised of Joe Fulton (Front man), Willy Freedbody (drums), and Craig Sullivan (Bass Guitar) has acquired a new wave 'hipster' vibe with harmonies in synchronicity with compelling guitar riffs.

The fourth winners are New Jersey based band Spider Rockets with their video 'Going Down'. One can only sum this up as rock and roll at it's baddest and darkest with strong 'classic rock' vibe. This band doesn't 'do rock' quietly, they do it loud with a big (albeit tattered and torn for special effect) bow on top. Lead singer Helena Cos and guitarist Johnny Nap are the dynamic duo that make up this powerful team which clearly transcends to: big things come in small packages!

The fifth winners of the video competition is New York based Brian Mackey with his video 'America'. Now, it's been a long time since I have listened to Neil Diamond (was a favorite as a girl growing up) but this young talent has encased Diamond's iconic vibe along with his own finesse and turned it into something really golden. I went on to listen to Mackey's other songs on iTunes and the whole album is consistent with the same midas touch. This is a song which is upbeat and reminiscent:

New Videos Launched in this episode are all the way from Dimapur, Nagaland, India by Abiogenesis and their music video “Voices of Kisama” as well as Closing out a National Television exclusive by Conceptz featuring MelodiQ and their latest music video “Love Jones”. Both videos are a wonderful new experience for those who are lusting for new music for the senses. Abiogenesis album ‘Aeon Spell’ released by Saregama in 2007 was listed for Nominations in the 50th Grammy Awards in the Best Contemporary World Music album of the Year. Conceptz is a breath of fresh air by paving the way with their 'New Era' rap sound with hip hop roots.
