Hi William. I noticed that you were on the top 10 in the Broadjam New York charts. I like your writing very much. I have a song there as well.
Check out my website: www.yourcustomsong.com
Perhaps there is a potential collaboration for us.

Hi William,

Thanks for the kind review of my song, "Tell Me What The Count Is".
It comes from my award-winning 1972 album, "Time Loop".

Stop by and listen to more, if you are so inclined.

I've been on a wee bit of a roll at Broadjam.
My song, " Jezebel", won the February 2012 Best Song Award.
Also, they just announced that my song, "Waving Prairie", (title tune to my second album), just won the April 2012 Best Song Award at Broadjam.

Hope to get your feedback.
