I have just removed 24 of my songs from my Broadjam page as I now have an exclusive licencing agreement for those song and didn't want to inadvertently submit any of those songs to other opportunities. I'm not sure if this is a good move or not. Only time will tell....



Hello Alan, Love your voice.... Do you ever collaborate?.... I don't sing for beans but I try to write at least one Christmas song each year.. This years song is Island Christmas...On my BJ page I have over 700 tracks. About 40% of those tracks have been Top Lined....The deal is 50/50 with the vocalist and I market aggressively...let me know if interested Thanks Marvin

Hi Marvin, good to hear from you. I wish I could take the credit for my vocals but I regret I have a terrible voice and therefore use singers for hire. I tend to use the same guy as he fits best the songs I write. He doesn't come cheap and I'm not sure if he would be up for collaboration, but if you are interested I will let you have his details. Good luck with your work. Regards, Al



Phil, thank you for your always encouraging comments on my songs. Much appreciated! Like you, the elusive break still awaits - but we carry on! Al

Hey Jimmy, thanks for your review of my song 'Blue Ain't The Color For Me'. It was a re-mix and you were quit right to point out the melody wasn't quite in syn with the vocals. I didn't realise it was so bad but (hopefully) corrected now. Cheers, Al

Hi Jim, somehow you slipped under my radar but so glad to have found your music! Some great tracks here and great vocals by Tim and Kimberley. I aspire to you achievements, but I never enter contests like you have, I suppose I don't think my work is good enough. Thank you for your recent comments on my stuff. Like you I can't find anywhere to give your songs 5 stars etc, but no matter how many you get they don't open any doors. Anyhow, love your story writing, country songs and Enya-type arrangements. My only suggestion for commercial success is to try and keep them under 4 mins long. But what do I know? Best, Al

You Can Think Again has an easy way about it! I first saw the Lyrics and knew it was a good one!
Tim does a great Professional job on Vocals, as he does for mine!
Your chorus is still going round! Well done sir!
I cannot see where to give 5 Stars on here now! Any ideas where!

Thanks Jim, no worries about 5 stars etc - imo they don't mean anything on this site. I've had plenty in the past and nothings changed '

Hi Al, appreciate your nice words! you have been on MY radar for a while now, since I saw that Tim appreciates your music with stars! Your songs are better Country than mine! I don't quite have that right Vibe!
Correction! I aspire to your creative ability.
Ever thought of looking at Music Xray! Joined two weeks ago and I have songs retained for use.
Your submitted songs are sent to 5 experts who give an honest % rating and state whether it is advisable to submit to other opportunities! If rated highly you are put in front of pros looking for your type of song!

Oh, I noticed I could give you five stars on the left hand side under graphics.
Five stars boost your songs chances of going up the Top Ten in your category!
Feel free!

Regarding your "Enya" flavour in my music:
So many people have commented on my music being of a Celtic (and now Enya) influence, so I have gone the full hog and used an Uilleann Piper, from your Spain to create a very Celtic rendering of "The Promise"! As it progresses through the latter stages it reaches an atmospheric Crescendo! Wonder if it could be a Film Soundtrack! will put it on my playlist here once I finish this (if I can suss how to enter it on here). Enjoy! The Promise "Uilleann Pipes"
Cheers, Jim

Hi again, yes really enjoy your music. I will award 5 stars - when I work out how to do it - was much easier in the old system! I have been with Music Xray for a few months and have a number of my songs on hold. Seem to get more recognition there than with BJ, but having said that I'm still waiting for the 'breakthrough'. Hey-ho, fingers crossed, and for your Xray subs too. Good luck! Al



Hey, Just listened to your song Country Back. Quite a cool song and arrangement, - pity about the vocalist Lol!
A political message in there if I heard it right? Well done, and good luck with the song Al

Another Cracker! "Shortcut To Love" is a swinging, melodic song with superb Lyrics, and of course Tim Patterson adding his Superb, Country Vibe. Def 5 stars! One more for radio I reckon! You must have quality Albums! I like your Lyrics style Allan!

Hi Alan,
Just checked out your video and was very impressed. Very good, very original angle of a country song with a nice blend of cowboy images. It's not easy to accomplish this with stock video but you've done a good job.
I like your vocalist Tim Patterson so did a bit of research to find out if he was a genuine US country singer and it's great to know he's the real deal. Did you find him on Fiverr.com? Have you used any other session singers? (I'm still dealing with a vocal cord issue and intend to use a studio singer from time to time.)
Good luck with your song, I like it!
Bob

Hey Bob, good to hear from you and glad you like the video. I did find Tim on Fiverr and tend to use him quite a bit as I mainly write country songs. I have used other singers off Fiverr though. Hope your vocal chord issue clears up soon mate, good luck! Al

Thanks Bob and Jim, good to hear Jim has used Fiverr and Tim. I would prefer to sing my own songs but voice not up to it no more Lol! While I am here, I have commissioned a couple of videos on Fiverr but they don't come cheap. Does anybody know where I can download free stock video clips to enable me to create my own videos? Cheers, Al



Hey there Albatross, just watched your video of "The Cowboy That Can" very cool video and your tune is really nice! If that is your voice on the video, it is perfect for your song!! Great Job!!

Oh yes she is. Thank you. She lives on in her song. We got to sing it for her as a church family on her front porch before she died. We also called her and sang I'll Fly Away before she died. Sweet lady...

Hi Alan, Thank you for your kind feedback and I must admit I pondered over the title! I'll Stand My Ground would be more snappy for sure but is not really descriptive of the overall situation. I may change it yet - still thinking about it. Thanks again, much appreciated.



Hi Guys, many thanks for your 5 star for Shabbat Shalom. Much appreciated. Al



Thanks for your review of 'Blue Ain't The Color for Me' . Very useful comments. Much appreciated. Al
