"I Break" Wow! So moving. Love the lyrics and the understated vocal and simple arrangement. Really wonderful work.
Thanks, Bobby! A labor of love. :)
Thanks for the stars on "The Northwestern", Bill - appreciated!
Really Enjoy Nighthawk. Evocative.
Thanks, Bobby! I appreciate that!
Hi William, I love your piano! Thanks for your kind 5 star review of When I Fall in Love, great comments! hugs and all the best music to you! DeDe :)
Thanks, DeDe! You have a great song there. And thanks for the stars and the listens! Cheers!--Bill
Hi William, Thanks for a supportive and constructive review of Between The Earth and The Stars. The song was written by Cat Lamond, my former publisher, and I was invited to write the music. It was given to the winner of the Voice of Namibia, Claudia Nelson, a couple of years ago. Cat had it produced professionally but I agree entirely that it lacks dynamics and sounds very similar throughout. Although released, I won't be using it as a down payment on my villa with a pool!!
Hi William. Thank you for your perceptive review of 'Mesmerise Me'. Much appreciated. David.
Hi William , thanks for those lovely stars for LOST .
I had writers block for a while , this one got me out of it !
I liked it! Really good lyrics. But yeah, I hear you. I don't post here much anymore. Just working on tunes of my own...that's its own reward, I guess. Hey, maybe that's a song! :)
There's always a song somewhere William !
Hi William , thanks for the review of YOU ARE THE LOVE .
Keep on rocking ,
Hi William - Thanks for the stars and playlist add of "Over" - appreciated!
Hi William , thanks for reviewing " All The Lights Come On ".
I still have a Roy Orbison t-shirt that I wear on holidays !
Cool song! All the best to you!
Thanks for the stars on "A Safe Place To Land." I truly appreciate it! "One Hit Wonder" is a hoot! I think that is the dream for many of us! :)
Ha Ha , I guess it is ! Thank you William .
William thanks so much for the review of my song Stronger. I really appreciate your critique! Some great ideas. Thank you!
Thanks again William for stars! - Kevin
Hi William--Thanks for listening to "It's All For You (piano only)" and the stars. I appreciate it! I was responding to your nice comment and accidentally deleted the entire thing (I hate my touchy laptop!). I listened to your "Waves", very beautiful and relaxing. I also listened to "Echo", which has a very cool chord sequence and is very intriguing. Nice work!
I just had a listen to "Everquest"...that is one serene and peaceful song! I was entranced for the 3 mins 28! Can I ask what effect you added to the piano to give it the really old upright piano feel? Or was that what you used to record? Really impressed with this! I'm working on an instrumental which is not simply a non-vocal version of an existing song so this was really helpful to listen to for technique. The piano 'riff' is very catchy!
Thanks, Q! I really appreciate that! I record it on my Yamaha keyboard, then use my DAW (Studio One) to correct my too many mistakes and build it out a bit more. The DAW has an "Acoustic Piano Resonating Softly" effect that I used for this one. So glad you liked it. I consistently like/admire your work. Cheers!
Ah...I'm glad that I heard the sound correctly then! It works really well and gives it a certain depth and ambience. I think that is the correct word!
It's a really enchanting tune which calmed me this morning after a sleepless night!
Thanks William for listening and taking time to give stars. Best to you. - Kevin
Thanks for the stars on "Water" - appreciated! Susan
Loved "By and By." So gentle and warm. Beautiful harmonies, and I really like the variation in the melody the second time through. Well done!
Hey! Thank you for that. Yeah, that song came from the heart, for sure. I appreciate the listen!
Hi William - Thanks for the playlist add and stars on "The Raven" - nice of you...glad you liked it! Susan
"Sometimes" is wonderful. Terrific lyrics, melody, and arrangement. Heartbreaking. Just lovely.
Aw...thank you SO much, William. Very kind of you to say so...it's one that I've been plugging away at for some time so it was a relief in some ways to get it out!
Hi William! Enjoyed listening to "My Vow"....very calming and serene! Has shades of John Denver meets Counting Crows?!!! Not sure that's a combination you've ever been given!
Hah! Yeah, that's a new one! Thanks, OQ!
Thanks for the stars on "Drive." I appreciate it and the listen, OQ!
You are very welcome!
"Drive" = a catchy tune and some really good lyrics. Strong vocal. Five stars!
Thanks, Billy! This one has a rather stripped down arrangement...someone with better skills than I could probably turn it into something really powerful. Thanks for the listen!
Thanks for your review of "Rainsong." And yes, LOL about the use of the sustain pedal...that was my first effort. :)
Thank you so much William for your very kind review of my cover and arrangement of When I Fall in Love. All the best to you and congrats on your success here and elsewhere! Hugs, DeDe :)
Nighthawk is so mesmerizing. I've listened to it a few times now, and am still finding layers. Great work!
Wow! Thanks, Billy! It's a somewhat new style for my instrumentals, so I appreciate the feedback. Cheers!
"Waves"-great track! I love the way it genuinely does take you to the beach and you can immediately picture the waves and the tide combining together. Very clever how it subtly jumps out of sync/tempo occasionally-exactly how the waves do. Well done!
Thanks, OQ! I truly appreciate that! :)
Just had notification that "Give Me Rain" finished in 3rd Place in Voyager's International Songwriting Competition for 2020 in Adult Contemporary category! Woohoo!!!
Congrats! Just listened to it. Great tune!
Thank you, William...really appreciate that! Hope you are well?
Big congratulations, Robert! I'm thrilled and it shows the great songwriter that you are! I really like "Give Me Rain." It's one of your best and it speaks to me, too!
Aw....thanks, John.....it's great to be part of such an inspiring circle of songwriters!
Thanks for the stars on "To Love" - appreciated! Susan
Cool song! Calming. Interesting variations.
Thank you! I truly appreciate the listen and the feedback!
This is just beautiful....it takes me straight to my perfect location....a log cabin in the middle of nowhere with snow piled up against the door and a roaring fire....superb job!
Thanks, OQ! I truly appreciate that!
