I like The Healing Derrick. Great mix of genres producing a thoughtful and powerful song and video. Great rapping and vocal. Good luck with the project.

Hello Broadjam friends! I have a new genre blending song/video that is the follow up to the tremendous reception of our previous song here, BACK ON MY FEAT. The love that was shown by Broadjam members for that one inspired Jay Netic and I to come up with something even better...and I think we hit the mark and then some. Please check it out on my hope page...like and review. But wait....there's more!! Check out this amazing video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4s kA61N7og

Like I said, great song. Does it come from your life?

Author

over 30 days ago

Oh yes. I actually wrote this song as my contribution to the first music library project that I engaged in. The fellow that brought me the project had a number of songs he had already written and I wanted to do some thing on my own. I was going through some challenging times with my older son. I could see him heading down a path I was very familiar with and that formed my launching pad lyrically. I'm glad you dig this song. I think we've had a few licensing opportunities with it.

Hi Derrick, Thanks for a kind and very constructive review of It Won't Be me etc. Yes, the vocal is a stumbling block really - it's a bit chicken and egg I suppose. As I've never had that hit song I would struggle to justify getting a pro involved. Whereas if I was a young performer/songwriter starting out it would be a sensible, legitimate investment. Of course if you were ever at a lose end.........?!!
Thanks again.
Bob

You're welcome Bob. I hear ya. However...I kinda look at it from the other perspective. Youn performers are probably the best at showcasing their original material. Veteran songwriters know that having the best possible vocalist to "sell" your song is the way to go. A small investment in a pro can be all the difference. At least that's my view from years in the biz. I'd be willing to chat about it sometime if interested.

Thanks Derrick, I appreciate your words of wisdom. I am very aware that a previous conversation I had on behalf of a third party came to nothing but, regrettably, that was out of my hands.
I will message you privately but it may be in a day or so. Much appreciated.

Hi Katilyn! Thank you for your brutally honest review of my song THE SMALLEST PART. You are absolutely correct...it is dated by contemporary Country standards. Not even one of my best songs honestly. But thank you for the nice words on my vocals. I'd love to share some of my more recent work with you...rockin' blues/americana/etc. I loved your song BE COMING. That's right on target. All the best to you.

Hi Jim! I just listened to your song I CAN'T REMEMBER MEMPHIS ANYMORE. Really nice work my friend. It was one of the songs for review in the Hot 100. I had to go check out whose it was. I've got to listen to some more...hoping they're as good. I see you had some friends of mine playing on that track...Kostia, Eric. I really loved the singer...she really sold it.

Hey Fred! Thanks for the great review of my song LIVIN IN A DREAM. It's one of my favorite live performance songs...we get to stretch it out and it's undergone more than a few changes since the recorded version. Let's connect. If you're ever looking for someone to help you out on vocals...

Fred, thanks for the strong reviews you've been giving to my music. I'm humbled because you have so much outstanding music, yourself...tasteful and memorable. I also love that there are so many contrasts in stylles to keep my interest. You've got mad skills, bro!

You mentioned my lyric sheets having songwriting credits, thus ruining my anonymity. I include them because there are often different singers, some of which had nothing to do with the songwriting. Also, if other people might decide to cover and/or post songs that include my contributions, I'd like to make the credits known. At this juncture, I'm not focused on a career in the industry anymore, but I love to make the music for music's sake. I don't have any specific other agenda, LOL!

You and your music, on the other hand, sound like you have a bright future! Best of luck on much success! I've enjoyed all the songs I've had time to listen to, so far!

And then I had to look up the artists to see who wrote this excellent tune. Best of luck to you. I'm gonna go peruse some more of your music now!

Hey Fred! Thanks for the 5 star review of my song BABY PLEASE. Yes...it was inspired by the ARS song SO INTO YOU...a basic blues with a Southern fried flavor. It's from a while back and has been licensed for a few different TV placements including Saving Grace.

Hey Kate! Thanks for that well thought out and extremely generous review of my song IT'S SO FUNNY I COULD DIE. That's a real old one...probably from the 80's. I was trying a lot of different writing techniques and genres then. I think it would be a good song for someone to license for a movie or show set in the 80's.

Thanks for the feedback for Keep The Faith Derrick, it means a lot. No excuses but I had grander ideas for the vocal but am trying to get rid of some sort of laryngitis that restricts my vocal range - its damned frustrating, especially as my voice has never been particularly strong.
As a really strong vocalist, if you know of any remedies for very tired vocal cords, I'm your man!!
Thanks again.

The best remedy for tired vocal cords is vocal rest. The other suggestion I would have is checking out my wife for online vocal lessons. She keeps singers singing healthy and strong. www.MeredithColby.com

Hey Nick! Thanks for the nice review of PERFECT DAY. I'm very proud of this one. I'm kinda hoping it might become a Country wedding standard someday. I co-wrote it and produced it for the vocalist, Joel Pilka, for his wedding dance surprise. Needless to say, it worked like a charm.

Hey Derrick, I will check it out. This is all very trying on so many people. I was laid-off from my job....to be expected. Unfortunately, I am trying to recover from 2019. I had two major surgeries that had me laid-up for 8 months....and then in January of 2019, a virus attacked my vocal chords and paralyzed them and caused a lot of havoc. I totally lost my singing voice and I have had 15 months of voice physical therapy to try and get it back.... which is slow, slow, slow......and doesn't sound like the old voice. Terrible experience. Anyway, lots of challenges..... I'll check out the song..... Be well and safe. Chester



I should have closed off the piano for. Check out the vocal. It's on my first page of the sing list. If you care too thanks. Felice

I'd love to know your thoughts o this.
