First of all, you seem to have produced a set of professional songs that I guess would sell really well. This is no exception. At first i didn't like the acc guitar, but then just when the electric g came in - it started to make more sense. I am listening to it a 2nd time and I think it's a beautiful composition with a well-thought-over harmony which is very listenable (to say the least). I also find the overall quality excellent, even though I might have some thoughts and ideas on how to make it better. I don't think they would do any huge difference (possibly only to myself making the song more enjoyable to listen to.

I always get the impression, though, that the vocals should have got more attention when you recorded them, and I don't mean the singing. What i mean is EQ and compression (the latter mostly) - but I might too picky. The ending IMO is good - a bit too fast but it makes you want to put the song on again.

Overall, A+

Best of luck 2 u

hey JBP, thanks for your comments - i agree with the vocals, iv tried alot to get the sounding clearer, but when it comes down to it all i have is a copy of a sm58 mic and the compression on my software isnt up to much - i would love to record my own album with drums etc in a pro studio... on that note you asked about sending songs in. a friend of mine has persuaded me to find a pro radio jockey and get him to make me a show of all my best hooks in my songs with a bit of authorial comment to catch their ears as the people listening probably get sick of hearing lots of songs that dont kick in for a while - like mine do. im currently working on that though. i dunno who to ask though, also i dont know how much to offer for their service. has anyone any advice?

It's a great song you sang very well, loved the harmonies. I'd like the lead vox to break through a little more. Please, check the tempo on the acc and bass. This has to be perfect cause it might be a hit

I really like the use of strumming. I think strumming in a different pattern has become a lost art. And like I said on the other song you posted recently, the new production your vox is getting is really working out well, keep doing it and keep improving, right?
As far as a hook, I don't know...I guess it just comes with working and trying different options. Also working with other musically talented people who can give you a fresh outlook on your songs. Sometimes when I'm doing music by myself I get in a rut, ya know?
As far as TAXI, I read up on them a while back. They're pretty expensive, esp if you don't know what results you'll get. But I think anyone you pitched your music to would be a fool not to pursue it. And I don't think you should have to pay someone either, they should be paying YOU, bc I've said it before, you've got talent.

Wow, I love your voice and style of playing, reminds me of some old Joni Mitchel or Carole King. Very well done and I agree with JBP, you should try to get your music on a label, i'd buy your cd.

Really nice!  Mix, vocals, guitar, the lot.
I listened to this in one room, and my 13 year old son is in another - he's still singing it; that's on one hearing!
Get signed!
Make more music!

I really enjoy most of your work, because of your vocal harmonies and guitar play - you have great composition skills. I hardly ever comment to you though - don't see much reason, so just so you know I too am listening to and downloading all your stuff

great job. good luck. love to hear more from you.
