I really like this song. The lyrics and the instrumental play and melody really sing. My only critique is that the volume of the drums with reference to placement in the song feels too loud.

Marie, I have listened to your song on both my Iphone and computer, both with earphones on... on my phone your words were very hard to hear...my computer was better...the mike you are using makes for your voice to be very soft...if that is what you were going for then it works but if you want your words clearer than maybe a different mike...I love the story it's great, your musical background is perfect for the song...This is what I would have written if I had gotten this for review...I gave 5* for the song because I loved the story line...I listened to Wayfaring stranger and had the same results in the vocal softness on my phone with earphones on... that is why I felt it maybe your mike... I hope this helps...your friend in music.

Delta, this was EXTREMELY helpful!
This one IS yet a work in progress and I'll certainly pay heed to the mic with the next mix.
Thanks so much for your time.
Looking forward to more music conversation in coming months­č'ő

Hi Bob,
Just a note to let you know that AT LONG LAST I've finally gotten a chance to upload a new song to my BroadJam Playlist! RETURN FROM THE SEA. Take a listen and do take a look at the song description for its origin.
I'd love to know your thoughts o this.

When I retire in January I'm looking forward to focusing more on my music AND being much more active on BroadJam. So lots more music to be finished and uploaded. Please share with friends and family if you find the music worthy :0)

Hi Marie, Forgive me but have you got the right person, I'm trying to recall how we may have been in touch before?


Marie Jarreau posted over 30 days ago


Hey Bob,
Its been nearly a year since I'd done anything on BROADJAM so I simply went to the list of folks in my Contacts and your info was included. I DO SINCERELY APOLOGIZE if this was an error on my part! Pleases do forgive me I won't trouble you again! A very infrequent visitor here, I'm still trying to learn the BroadJam process and protocol.
Regards,
Marie

Absolutely no apology required or expected Marie. Put it down to my years but I couldn't find you in my contacts, song reviews etc. Will check out your music later. Bob

Hi Marie, Have just listened to Return From The Sea. Like Delta, not only did I struggle to hear the lyrics, and therefore the story, the entire production is incredibly low gain. I had to turn up volume controls big time just to make out the music. This is a shame because I really like the melody and the sea folk feel of the song. (It is also quite tough on the ears if you forget to turn the volume down before listening to something professionally recorded!)
Having read the lyrics, I realise that they are also very high quality. As far as I can tell, your voice really suits the style as well.
Please don't take any of this as a criticism because the real strength of BJam is being able to get opinions and advice from other people's experience. When all's said and done it is only my opinion and I'm as fallible as everyone else!!
I'm assuming you record at home but I obviously don't know your method. It sounds like you might be recording everything at once by placing a mic nearby and singing and playing - as if live? If there is any way you can record each element separately and then mix them you could get a higher gain in each section and subsequently a louder track overall. I want to emphasize that I really like the song but it could be so much better if the technical side could be improved. Lots of luck, Bob.


Marie Jarreau posted over 30 days ago


Dearest Bob, I can't tell you how much I do value your feedback here and the technical insight you've shared.
Yes, this is why I've come to BroadJam, I understand the environment is primarily about artists helping artists to improve their musical craft. Thats exactly how I see your communication here and I appreciate your taking the time to share that with me.

I do record at home and actually did record each element separately BUT working with Cubase 5 production software is a "part-time" learning experience.
Return From The Sea IS a work in progress and I am planning to work on this more after getting some input just like what you've shared here.
I'm very anxious to reach retirement in Jan. to really begin to work on the music.
Thanks again Bob, I'd be happy to share the re-mix with you when that one comes about in coming weeks, if you like. That still may NOT be the final mix as I know I have much to learn :0)

Hi Marie, We all have much to learn! Just ask if there is anything I can help with. I look forward to your next mix. Bob

Thanks Marie, just catching up on email. I'll get back to listen tomorrow (Wednesday)! Spent the morning setting up a refinance for the balance of our mortgage here. If no snafus, we will move into a 2.875% rate!
