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",  "One Night Stand" and, “I See Her Dancing”!   Kimberley Dunn elevates the songs, "The Promise", "Drift Away" and "One Night Stand" so beautifully! "Covid has started a journey I wish to continue".

Thanks Mr Carroll!
Is it the upbeat version with Tim you like or the folk version from Bob Warren?

Hi, Jim. "I See Her Dancing" is one of your best tunes. Both versions are enchanting. The melody is pretty and memorable, lyrics tell a story like a Don Williams song.

Thanks John! It is Simple Fairytale but enjoyable to create!
I am listening and commenting on different artists work here just now, when I noticed your comments!
Appreciate it!



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!
