Thanks for sharing it

One of my songs made #1 the Folk-Rock Top Ten. Not sure how that happens exactly, but I'm happy about it anyway. My band is KIN and the song is I'm Not That Anymore.

Thanks for the review of my song, Sinking Ship Rag! Given the amount of talent in your band, I appreciate it!

Thanks for review of 'Why'd It Have To Rain So Hard'. I wrote that right after the Batman movie shootings in's not really a 'weather' song.

Hi Mitch,
Just reviewed First Night and thought the first line was "Last Night I Kicked her out", which put a strange twist on the song, something I commented on!! Now that I know the name of the writer I have been able to come here and check it out. I can only apologise for not making out the lyrics - put it down to old age!! At least it is not visible with the song but apologies nonetheless!

It's okay Bob, much worse things have happened to me in my long life. I can see how you might have thought it a twisted song after getting that first line wrong. As penance, maybe you could tell me what you think of my song "On and On". I don't think I mumbled any of those words. Thanks for the review anyway.

Me too Mitch!
Penance has been paid, I've just listened to On and On and really enjoyed it. Now this is a compliment, not a criticism, I like the simplicity of the arrangement, it goes with the nature of the song and suits the it really well. There is a very comforting sentiment throughout and great harmonies just round off this track.
I also heard Halfway to Doolin which I also really enjoyed, being from Dublin myself. A very authentic sounding song which should keep those memories alive. Have a listen to Ireland's Eye when you have a mo, you might get some of the Irish atmosphere from it. 1

Thanks Bob. I totally took the comment about the simplicity of the arrangement on On and On as a complement. That was the whole idea for that one. Simple...less is more. I used to be in and Traditional celtic band here in Wisconsin and we got a chance to visit a number of years ago. Turned a poem I'd written about the visit into a song with my daughter on fiddle and nephew on whistle. Always brings back the memories. Thanks again. I'll have a listen to Ireland's Eye.

I had a listen to Irish Eyes...oops I meant Irelands Eye. Liked atmosphere a lot. I've listened to and played a lot of irish traditional music and you may be stretching it a bit when you said the synth pipes sounded liked like real uilleann pipes. Not so much but they did sound fine with rest of the orchestration. A small gripe and over all you're a very talented musician and writer. I'll be checking in on you frequently on Broadjam. Keep on.

Believe it or not Ireland's Eye was not a play on Irish Eyes, it's an island off Howth near Dublin which I used to visit a lot as a boy and it just seemed right. As for the Uilleann pipes, they are certainly a very complex sound but I agree to differ with you, I think it's a pretty good approximation. But then it doesn't really make much difference either way!!
(An Irish friend asked me to make a ring tone out of it and I put it on my own mobile, but forgot. I was in the local grocery store when I heard Ireland's Eye being played on the store sound system - or so I thought - and was wondering how come they'd got hold of it when the penny finally dropped. Yes, I missed the call!!)

Thank you for the kind compliments Mitch.

I saw you'll be playing at the Oneida Cty Fair. If my summer trips is delayed I just might get to catch you there but with my luck I'll be a month early. Millennial man is a cool tune!

KIN posted over 30 days ago

Thanks Jeff. I respect your opinion. Stop by and say hi if you make it to the fair. My wife and everyone in the band is from Rhinelander. except me....And I'm no singer but fortunately I'm in a band with some.

My dad has a place outside Lake Tomahawk. We've been fishing the Rainbow Flowage my entire life. My dad since he was a kid

Missed you at the Oneida County Fair in August. I've uploaded a few new tunes if you'd care to take a listen.

"Miller's Meadow" has real spirit. I liked it a lot!!

Hey Mitch,

Hey, thanks for the nice review of my song, "My New Son". I had to laugh at you comment about a daughter. I don't know that 'Mrs. Nichols would or could I go for that. Then, again, there is always adoption or getting a new, younger Mrs. Nichols, which won't happen either. I love the one I have.

Oddly enough, you'd probably expect that as a new dad, you'd run home from the hospital after the birth and write a tune. We'll, in my case, I waited until we were done having kids. Having a second son, I wanted to break out a unique verse for him, too. One of my favorite lines in the song is;
"When I wonder how I'll love my children equally
I found the answer in their individuality".

Anyway,thanks for taking to time to review this song and best of luck with your music.

My Best,

Chet Nichols

That was also my favorite line from that song. I suspected maybe you weren't a new dad. Sometimes it takes a few years to get the proper perspective on things. I like a lot of your stuff. Keep up the good work.

"Your the Dime in My Pocket" ... sweet harmonies on Lighter Shade. Nicely done.

KIN posted over 30 days ago

Thanks Jeff. It's nice to be in a band with guys that can sing....

Hey Mitch, 90 Days........... Really nice song. In my mind, it should be on the radio. All the best.
