Fantastic! Seems so rare a song gets picked up off BJ or Taxi to be recorded by a signed artist. I had a crack at country but find the format a bit confining - but your song sounds right on the button for todays market.

.........yes, and it was very tasty!!!


Radiation Mountain posted over 30 days ago


That's a great one Anthony! I'm hearing Carole King meets Steely Dan. I wanna hear the sistahs coming in behind you, but the vocal stands alone quite well. "watch you watch *me*" is a really nice moment. This is a winner!


The Spermatochords posted over 30 days ago


Needless to say, that song was a blast to record. The sax player is a big Steely Dan fan, so he was "all-in". Jeff, I have a couple songs down the road where some "sistahs" will be backing me up.

True story: Not long after finishing the song, I played it for my wife. First thing she said when I was done was "Who's Mr. Cool?" That tells you all you need to know about who's NOT Mr. Cool (at least in this household). :)


Steve Low posted over 30 days ago


That's a cool song - a bit of West Coast Steely and RnB horns thrown in and a steamy lyric. Your voice is always impressive - very marketable I'd say

Great to hear your releasing more material. This is a departure from your previous work with a more roots feel. I like as a first release - It sets things up for what's to come - bit like Drive my car does on Rubber soul


The Spermatochords posted over 30 days ago


Thank you. My attitude is "there's no reason to do it if I can't do it differently". I'm proud of the fact that, of the 11 songs, 10 are different genres.


Radiation Mountain posted over 30 days ago


I'm in!! Already love the first one.

Nice work with I'm Looking For You being selected. I had something in that submission.It's a well written song. Like you I'm in the sciences (Anaesthesiology) but really enjoy the creative process of songwriting. I had a couple of songs selected a few months ago but they've disappeared into the ether . .

Clark Ford posted over 30 days ago


Steve, thanks for your encouraging comments. I am still saying "Show Me the Money!" after several selections that have disappeared into the ether. I like your stuff. The music has to be it's own reward...


Steve Low posted over 30 days ago


It sure does - as they say, it's the process not the outcome that sustains you. I tried country music for a while and enjoy playing pedal steel and resonator guitars etc but the format seems too restrictive lyrically to make headway in. Lately I've been trying RnB where anything goes!


Clark Ford posted over 30 days ago


I have tried a number of genres: Country, Pop, Celtic, Jazz, Rock, Sacred, Gospel, Blues. I just like all the music, I guess!


Clark Ford posted over 30 days ago


Did I mention operetta?


Steve Low posted over 30 days ago


That's a lot of genres! I submit through Taxi.com mainly but can't get one past them yet. It's so hard for me to sound contemporary - the 60s and 70s keep permeating through and wrecking my chances. I enjoy the challenge though.


Clark Ford posted over 30 days ago


Yes, exactly! I gave up on Taxi. Thinking of just sending everything directly to a production music library that is interested. I wrote 6 full-length musicals set in each decade since the 1960s. Some of my music was a deliberate attempt to sound retro. The show set in 2016 was challenging. I have had 2 songs recorded (I paid) from that show: Love Transcends, and You Make Me Happy.


Steve Low posted over 30 days ago


I like the aesthetic you have wrung from your subject matter in the recent musical. Good to seek out the heart of the matter


Clark Ford posted over 30 days ago


Hey, been listening to a few more of your tracks. I like the sexual innuendo. Aircon and Black Line could be played on any alt radio station and fit right in. Don 't know how one gets on the air. We have an alt station here in Ames IA (college town) but I have never sent them anything, as so far my recordings are not alt. I did notice on Political and the Cafe song that the lyrics don't match the song. No harm in correcting that... Here is my "alt" piece (kind of) in a prelminary recording of just me singing (!) https://soundcloud.com/cfford/im-no t-a-bad-guy


Steve Low posted over 30 days ago


That's a good theme - sounds like the electric Piano off the 'Help' album. I'm not surprised those lyrics don't match - I probably updated the songs for Taxi or Sound cloud and uploaded the recording to BJ without changing the lyrics.


Clark Ford posted over 30 days ago


Turns out I am not a pianist (or guitarist) but I am a longtime Beatles fan! I have been sending my stuff to a studio who creates a "contemporary" arrangement to the extent that they can. Chords is chords, right?


Elijah Roc posted over 30 days ago to Roy Elkins


shalaam, roy!

good t know who you are

I have been wit broadjam.com fore a few years now, and recently, I submitted fore th first time!

have t admit, web sites can be a little frightening

it has always been cool t be able t display My music, but when it comes t spending money t be heard or reviewed I have been leary

I read about you finding your niche and as a studio composer and entrepreneur, it's was cool t learn about th man behind th scenes

blessing t promotion of good music and perhaps I may get t shake your hand one day

Roy Elkins posted over 30 days ago


Elijah, Thanks for the nice note. Don't let web sites frighten you. There are a lot of great ones in the world. Find two or three that work for you and stick with them. And if you are not comfortable with the fees, then utilize their free services. Like other sites, there are many things to on Broadjam free of charge. Please take advantage of them, especially connecting with the other writers. We have seen so many good people get connected and create great projects together. That in itself is truly one of the joys of running this website. My best to you and it would be an honor to meet you as well. All the best, Roy


DOUG HAMILTON posted over 30 days ago


Hey,Roy!Just wondering.On my submissions it says that provider listened to a song of mine twice.Does that mean anything?


Roy Elkins posted over 30 days ago


Doug, My guess is that the provider probably put a group of songs in a higher category and reviewed them at a later date. I'm not sure it means anything yet, but it who knows. Sorry I couldn't be more specific. Thanks for being a member, Roy


Steve Low posted over 30 days ago


Hi Roy. in response to a a request for tracks for a review thing-a-me you're doing - http://www.broadjam.com/artists/songs.php?artistID=82724&mediaID=636342 1

My comment must not have taken, I was reviewing tunes for the SOng of The month contest and when I hear Life and Soul I had to track it down. Fantastic tune that has infected my brain!

Thanks Jeff, it was purpose written for a submission on Broadjam Steve


Steve Low posted over 30 days ago


Thanks Jeff - that's the kind of feedback anyone would be happy with!


Steve Low posted over 30 days ago


Hey Jeff I replied to this (must be about 2 years ago! But it didn't seem to take. Thanks for the positive affirmation.

Congratulations on your song placements, Steve. Wishing you much more success. Anthony

Steve Low posted over 30 days ago


Thanks alot. Concentrating on trying to get a liscensing success now in the country area. Have to write to the country formula but it's interesting..


Steve Low posted over 30 days ago to The Spermatochords


Came to have a look at Broadjam again. Half life was on the main page so had a listen again. A truly masterful song. There's alot of controversy on Soundcloud about the new interface. But it isn't much different really. Good thing about broadjam is all the submissions you can do for recording projects TV etc. Good to see you're still at it. Steve

The Spermatochords posted over 30 days ago


Thanks for the nice words. I wasn't having any luck on Soundcloud. No one was listening to my songs. I went months with only a handful of plays, so I decided to stick to broadjam. At least my songs get heard here. Anthony


Steve Low posted over 30 days ago


It's all just down to networking probably - the same on Broadjam. The way to work soundcloud is to coment on other peoples tracks, favoirte or follow them. That inspires those artists to look at your work. I've done no networking on Broadjam apart from some song reviews and so my songs hardly get heard. It's quite time consuming to do all that. i just load songs on this site if i want to submit to something. Your work is very high quality and if you were full time with a live band etc you could go a long way. But it's a big call with a job like yours and a family etc. Steve


The Spermatochords posted over 30 days ago


Thanks again, Steve. Always apreciative of the support.


Rob Chisholm posted over 30 days ago to Steve Low


Thanks for the review Steve, I'm remixing most of my stuff so I'll take your suggestion on board. It's a very hard song to sing and I ain't no singer ! lol Glad you thought it had a good hook.
Cheers mate

TopTen ! Huge, well done mate.


Steve Low posted over 30 days ago


Don't know how they work that out. My song didn't exactly have a huge no. of hits


Rob Chisholm posted over 30 days ago


Yeh, same here, one of mine did too. Just lie back and enjoy ! lol


Nick Fuse posted over 30 days ago to The Spermatochords


Spermboy! Great job on another Top 10 Success. Maybe we need to come out of the closet and play together some time? Or maybe the world would spin off its axis?

The Spermatochords posted over 30 days ago


Hey Nick...Thanks, as always, for the support. I wouldn't have any songs in the Top 10 if not for your backing. It's nice but I don't take it seriously. The real measure of whether or not someone likes your stuff is if they buy it. In that regard, I am batting Zero. I don't know if the world would spin off it's axis, but it may wobble a bit.


Steve Low posted over 30 days ago


Buying it true ... but there are lesser measures like downloading for free or repeated plays. The no.of quality artists allowing free downloads on soundcloud for example is huge. Steve


The Spermatochords posted over 30 days ago


Steve...I recently uploaded a few songs to Soundcloud and they're available for free download. We'll see if anyone does so. However, as you mention, it is a much "lesser" measure. It doesn't help pay for the cost of recording the songs. Glad to see you've also had some time on the Top 10 - well deserved. Anthony


Steve Low posted over 30 days ago


Thanks. I found you on soundcloud. 3 superb songs. You'll get a ton of hits there soon with music like that Steve


The Spermatochords posted over 30 days ago


Thanks for the info. I've connected to you (started following you) on Soundcloud and will probably add some more songs. Anthony


Steve Low posted over 30 days ago


Thanks for that Anthony. I don't think your tracks are downloadable yet on SC - if that was your intention. But to sell downloads I guess it's a matter of getting tons of hits and then people going to your website. It's hard to know how to generate 1000s of hits. The only song of mine that is in the 1000s on SC is called jack Johnson - so it's easy to guess how that works. I hadn't even heard Jack johhnson's music when i wrote that. I just thought what a lucky guy - a pro surfer and musician.


The Spermatochords posted over 30 days ago


What do I have to do to allow downloads? I thought that was automatic when you uploaded the song.


Nick Fuse posted over 30 days ago


You have to make them Free, brother. That is the easiest way. If you want to allow Transmits, you have to click the Allow Song Transmits button on the bottom of Add/Edit Songs. Hope that helps.


The Spermatochords posted over 30 days ago


Hey Nick, I was referring to Soundcloud...not Broadjam. Thanks anyway. Hope all is well with you. Anthony


Steve Low posted over 30 days ago


Go to the edit icon and then click on download free (goes red to green) near the bottom of the page


The Spermatochords posted over 30 days ago


Steve, I got your message the other day and have made the change on Soundcloud. The previous message was in response to Nick's comment. Thanks. Anthony
