Jim Aitken is relatively "late to the table" as someone who writes his own lyrics and accompanying music.
His Songs are brought to life by Select and Great Artists!

"The Promise", won "The Muse Songwriters" monthly Lyric Competition.
The Lyric, "Sunset" was Finalist in the UKSC!
It has still to be Recorded and Released!j
Other songs have achieved Semi Finalist status over the last two years.

Jim leans towards songs with a story! I.e. (Leonard Cohen and Gordon Lightfoot).

Tim Patterson, on Broadjam, brings the (more Country Style) songs to life! "Reach The Sky", "My Last Farewell" and "One Night Stand"!

Kimberley Dunn elevates the songs, "The Promise", "Drift Away" and "One Night Stand" so beautifully!

Hi Jim,
I just listened to "Drift Away Ensemble". Very nice piece! I love the melodies/harmonies from the two violins... nice choices on instrumentation/arrangement. I also like where you take the song melodically from the from front to the back.

Well done! 5 Stars from me!

Much appreciated comments Frank!
You may prefer Instrumentals, but in your own time pleases hear, "The Promise", "I See Her Dancing" and "One Night Stand"!

Hey Jim , just listened to I see her dancing - wow you have a wonderful voice, and you can tell a story. Found myself getting a little teary halfway thru actually. But the song has a great lilting feel so it keeps the enrgy going. Lovely, really lovely!

Sorry Di, I didn't mean to mislead you! I do not sing on my songs.
I only write the Lyrics and the Music!
I record me singing with guitar and send it to a musician to have the music created. I then send to a singer. I have been fortunate enough to use great singers to match the songs. Tim Patterson from Florida has sung most.
Kimberley Dunn from Ottawa sings, beautifully, "The Promise", "Drift Away" and "One Night Stand,"
If you were Teary at "I See her....." you better have a tissue ready for both, "Drift Away" and, "The Promise"
If you enjoy any of the songs feel free to select the No. of Stars they deserve!
That is what helps our songs go up the Top Ten Charts on here!
Will hear more from your stable!
Cheers, jim
