No thanks, close this window
just wondering how you are doing. . . (hmmmm)
I can't help loving this song!
I've been listening through some of your tunes and I gotta say you have wide and varied talents. From Zombeesha to Hilltop Bossa two tunes I enjoyed and yet two tunes completely different from one another. Incredibly Interesting Island might be my favorite though. I'll check out more soon.
Thanks Jeff! Your comments are a real lift! Much appreciated. Yes, I just can't stay in one style for very long, I keep writing songs that come out in different genres, that's just the way they occur to me! If you keep listening, you won't find more than a half dozen in any one genre! Thanks and keep on musicking!
I used to go by the Nic 'MrEclectician" on YouTube so I gotta say i love variety as well. Glad to make your acquaintance.
I appreciate the review of "Missed Dat Boat". I thought your comments were both helpful and honest. To tell you the truth this song was one of my early recordings and though I still haven't been able to engineer a song that I feel is professional quality, I have at least improved my sound. Thanks again.
thanks for the review of nobody famous, i produced it, and a friend wrote and rapped the chorus and verses.
Hi, thanks for the great review of 'Calling Out'. You're right about commerciality not being first and foremost, but I don't think any of us would turn a little of it down..ha,ha! Truth is, I don't know where to go with it, any suggestions gratefully received. Thanks again and good luck.
You are most welcome John, good luck and keep up the good work!
Sorry I just reread your reply and realized you were asking for suggestions. I know it's a lot of money to invest, but having been a very active member of TAXI for a few months, I notice that at this time they are getting a very large number of listings for folk, indie folk, acoustic singer songwriter styles of music. In particular they are looking for the contemporary style but I think a lot of your stuff could fit. They are very strict on mixing and performance standards for most listings but I felt your stuff matched a number of listings I've seen recently. Broadjam has many of the same listings as TAXI but not so many in the in indie folk singer songwriter area. I'd check both sites frequently if I were you. You don't have to pay to read the listings and if you do pay at taxi they will refund your money if you are not satisfied anytime in the first year, but be careful, they will not do that after the first year!
Andrew, thanks for the review on nights are so lonely, your review was very informative and constructive, all my lyrics really do come from the heart so I am glad that has come across. I thank you for your feedback and take it all on board. I'm glad you liked it. Thanks again
OH ya, forgot to add that in Methadone Dream, the chorus seems really personal because of the mention of Jesus, but that's because despite these junkie's addictiions they both maintained christianity as their religion. I thought it was kinda weird, but whatever, so figured if J-Man was going to come to them he'd do better just coming as a ordinary looking guy instead of one in flowing robes. Haha, you prob don't remember the song :D
Hi Superband...really get a kick out of your name D. Thanks for reviewing "Methadome Dream"....ya, it was based on a true story from a time i lived in the shelters, so in the tradiition of folk it tells a story. I see the recording didn't grab you, which isn't unusual, it was done live on two Roland Edirols (us folk alternatives always looking at different ways to record :) ). The song is pretty well cemented so there's no going back now but do appreciate your input !!!!
Hey I did like it, I was just observing ways it could be enhanced. I think it's very god work and the personal expression moved me
Very good work was what I meant to type.. A divinely inspired typo?
Thanks! That's actually a first for comparing to Randy Newman and Bruce Cockburn, but those are two or my favorites, I think you're right on there. Great work on your music, I was especially blown away by What You Do!
Hello Andrew, thanks for the review of my song "Release the Lions". Your review was much more thorough and "constructive" than typical for broadjam. Keep it up. I appreciate the nice words and agree with the constructive comments. The song was recorded very simply...solo vocal and acoustic guitar, live, no overdubs, for ecconomic reasons. I had a bunch of songs that I was recording for posterity and wanted to do it as efficiently and cheaply as possible, while still using a professional studio. The first 14 songs on my list are newer and have more of a band vibe. You're brand new on this site. I wish you well and will help you along the way with a friend request (so those who follow me can check you out). Anthony
Correction: "The first 14 songs..." Not including "Kiss", which was just added and is an older song.
Anthony's post prompted a listen. Nice work Andrew --this is *real* and that's huge. Reminiscent of Bruce Cockburn and Randy Newman IMO but I bet you hear that a lot.
what fun. . .
Anthony, thanks, and good thinking on your recording strategy, niw you can choose which songs need overdubs the most and you can add those as you get the money, you've laid a strong foundation for any future work on those songs.
