Hi! I have been dabbling in song writing for many years and have finally found the inspiration to do something with the music, not to mention a local producer who made it all possible. Slowly adding to my list.

Nice of you to reply Ashley. Played your three other songs / instrumental backing track and really enjoyed! Quality singing in Black-Hearted Cowboy and The Long Winding Down.
You produce a great live instrument sound. Extremely crisp to the ears! Great guitar backing and lead guitar in bridge. Leviathan Lyrics will be worth waiting for if the music is anything to go by! My songs are all different! I write what I like or whatever comes to me so it is diverse. Feel free to listen to them. "The Promise" and "Drift Away are emotional but I have a couple of Country numbers too! Ashley, can I ask if you could listen to, "Reach the Sky" and consider recording it? No problem if it is too fast or too traditional for you. I think your singing could relate well with the Lyric. I wrote it for a female singer but came across Tim who has a good Country voice so had him record it, but I really wish to hear it sung by a great female voice. I made a home movie for it and it features the girl! Let me know your thoughts? Oh, and you could adapt to suit using your own musicians! Cheers, jim

Top Lyrics and melody in my opinion!
"I did something I shouldn't've done,
But I'd do it again"

Great hook, and sentiment which evokes a relatable emotion!
Just read your Beautiful Sin Reviewed by Alex Johnstone and do not agree in 3/5 for Market potential!
5/5! Definitely!
I'm considering a Review of my song, "The Promise", using Alex! He is steeped in the business!
I write how I feel and not genre specific; but probably not what you would be interested in!
Just love your vocals! I suppose a singer creates more emotion if singing their own song!
Do you recommend a favourite of yours I must hear?
Go girl, Go!

Hi Jim! I haven't been on here in quite some time. I really appreciate your kind words and support! Musical taste and therefore opinions are so subjective, that's why there is endless variety and types, right?! I don't take anything personal, but of course love to hear positive things! So thank you. I'll take a listen to your work as well, Ash

Hi again Ash, any chance you could have a glance at my Reach the Sky, for singing.
It really is a song for a girl to sing.
You can see the video I made for it on my site here.
Also my One Night Stand may be better for your taste!

Awwww! Thank you Betty! I don't come on here too often, I'll check out your stuff too. I appreciate the compliment! Do you miss this area? I was born here

I missed it terribly when I first moved away. Now I just feel a desire to come back occasionally. My nephew, Michael Gaither, is a pretty well know Singer/Sonwriter in Santa Cruz county so we come down once in a while to go to one of his events. My kids all grew up there during the 60s-70s.
