Thanks for reviewing the song 'Angela' which is about a very dear friend of mine from Canada who now lives in New Zealand. The title doesn't appear in the song, but I agree with you, it doesn't always need to. I am listening to your beautiful instrumental piece about home. Just up to where the harmonica is singing. My children and I are really enjoying it. My friend Angela and I are both Jehovah's Witnesses so we have a lot in common. Thanks again for the lovely review. Rachel
Rachel: thank you fro sharing such a wonderful song. Peter
THANK YOU ON THE REVIEW OF "PIERNAS". GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR MUSIC. HAPPY HOLIDAYS, TAPPIN' TOMMY
Thanks for reviewing Two Are Better Than One. I appreciate your comments. The arrangement is very sparse. We recorded the song many years ago when we didn't have access to anything but piano thus the sparsity.
Am listening to your song Ocean. Very clean, professional recording with lovely harmonies. I enjoyed it. Bye now
Hi, thanks for your kind review, good luck with your music, this time next year........
Thank you for reviewing our song 'When the Wonderful Occurs'. I am listening to your song 'Freedom' right now. Your vocalist sounds lovely, reminds me of Anne Murray. The song suits her so well.
Thanks Rachel. Just listened to some of your songs. Very enjoyable on several levels, the social commentary and the pure music. Now that's an accomplishment. Well done. Aloha, Harrison
Freo: Thanks for your review of "Pass It On." Good luck with your music. Mack Harrell
Thanks for review of Gypsy Rover. Glad you recognized the old classic. Covering songs is allowed on Broadjam isn't it? I think it's great to cover worthy music myself. Keeps it alive and different musicians bring different feels to the song. I've heard Edie Reader, she's wonderful. I haven't heard her do The Gypsy Rover, that must sound a treat. Yes our recording was certainly a bit sparse, but that's what comes of being financially strapped and trying to make the most of what you have. One lady I know loved our version so I guess it's all in the eye of the behearer. Thanks again.
Yes, covering songs is allowed on Broadjam - in fact a covers contest was part of last year's 6-pack challenge, which was a lot of fun. In the case of The Whistling Gypsy Rover, which is obviously a well known cover, I couldn't give marks for quality of lyrics, quality of hook or originality as the song was obviously not written by the artist, so I checked the "N/A" box. I actually liked the sparseness of your recording and the swinging way the song was portrayed. What I was less keen on was the thin "D.I." or Direct Input sound of the guitar and I suggested you re-record only the guitar part acoustically, i.e., either with a single microphone or a stereo pair to give it a rich, natural sound. One thought I've just had is that you could add a ukelele in parts. It would be perfect for this song.
Thank you for the lovely review of 'Two are Better Than One'. We recorded that song in a little studio in Hamilton NZ. I was pleasantly surprised to see that you are a Kiwi like me.
I just listened to Vultures and thought the recording sounded fine. I'm curious to know your meaning. My son was in the room and asked if you were Regina Spektor so I call that a compliment!
Two Are Better Than One is based almost solely on Ecclesiastes Chapter Four verses nine to twelve. It's about marriage and is saying that two are better than one for they can support each-other but how much better is a marriage held together with a three-fold cord, the third party being our creator Jehovah God.
PS We used to live next door to an old guy named Mr Lumsden in Whitianga. Any relation?
Hi Rachel. Thanks for explaining the song. I have no faith anymore and Vultures is a bit twisted as a result. I've just listened to Broken Glass, you have a really lovely voice.
I'm Scottish but have two little Kiwi's of my own. It is a small world!
Thanks for the review of our song "Trees." (we are the children) We appreciate your comments and will take them to heart.
Good luck to you with your music,
Mario & Tiffany
Whether in the city, or pretending it's the country, enjoying your songs . . . Best Wishes for Wherever Life and the Music May Lead You . . .
thanks so much for your praise/comments of "human highway" "when the wonderful comes" is a sweet , funky listenable song ...a little Bonnie Raitt , and a touch of Little Feat. yes, if only half of this world would practice the golden rule it could be a paradise while we are here...so sad. God Bless to you !
Hi and thanks for the positive review of "Wedding Daze"
