The winner of the Music Audio Chart is the one and only Limor Sharvit! The singer/songwriter from Israel, shot to the top of this week's chart with her original track 'Home'. The emotional track has obviously touched the BEAT100 community, after gaining 1500 views and great responses from Limor's fans. Limor has always had a strong passion for music; beginning to play the organ at just 8 years old, Limor went on to begin songwriting at age 12! Limor believes that musical ability was something she was born with, she tells BEAT100 'Music has always been and will always be an integral part of me and my life... just being able to touch people's hearts with my music on a daily basis feels to me like the biggest achievement of all.' Born in the early 80s, Limor feels that many of her influences stem from this era; artists such as Mariah Carey, Luther Vandross and George Michael inspire her when she is developing all of her music. The multi talented artist not only writes and sings her own songs but she composes, arranges and produces everything in her own home studio, proving that her talents run deeper than her soulful vocals. Limor is busy building her musical career with the addition of her own professional website, while also working on licensing her own material. Currently, Limor plans to continue working hard on the release of her brand new, self produced debut album! BEAT100 can't wait to hear it!

Talented pianist and composer Matias Baconsky finished in third place in the Audio Chart with his beautiful track 'Scars of Life'. The 20 year old from Argentina shows amazing promise as a pianist after only beginning to play 5 years ago! Matias impressed the BEAT100 community this week with his classical tune, which gained over 1000 plays on BEAT100 alone. Inspired by Amy Lee from Evanescence, Matias began to learn piano after listening to her play 'My Immortal'. After learning all of Amy Lee's music, Matias moved on to explore the genre more thoroughly, also inspired by pianist Jennifer Thomas. Challenging himself further, Matias moved from his basic keyboard to a piano to achieve a better range for his music. The young composer takes pride in his work, impressed with himself that he has come so far in such a short space of time. From only sitting down at a keyboard 5 years ago, Matias has now digitally released his own debut album. Looking to the future, he would love to move his work to a professional studio and release his album physically as well as digitally. For now Matias will continue to compose his own songs while looking forward to a possible second album somewhere down the line! BEAT100 can't wait to hear what is next!
