Thanks for your good review of my tune, 'Stack 'em Up'... I was trying to go for a '50-60's vibe, and the song is fun to play live...Thanks for your comments!

Hello Hit Zone, thanks for the sweet review of Bifocal Blues. If it made you smile, I've done my job. God bless you and merry Christmas. Enjoy the snow up there in WI. Our Dau in Law is from Chippewa falls. Mrs. Kate in FL (rainy and gray) www.MrsKate.com

Today we launched major upgrades to Broadjam.com. Our mission was to make Broadjam.com easier to navigate, but more importantly, find good music. All navigation tools are now in our North-South menu on the left hand side of the page. When new or returning visitors come to the Broadjam.com home page, they will see our members featured in the Top 10 charts. It is now much easier to find new music and for fans to engage and communicate with our members. Stay tuned for more updates coming soon......Let me know what you think. Your feedback is greatly appreciated......Roy

Katie Hardyman posted over 30 days ago

Go broadjam!! Well done on the upgrade. Looks great and is easy to use.This is my favourite music site!!Cheers Katie

Hit Zone/Bureau of Music posted over 30 days ago

Looking good Broadjam! Like the layout. Bumped into a list "Top 10:Peavey" during my look around. Is that artifact, Easter egg, or foreshadowing? Adios, pjn

Broadjam Customer Support posted over 30 days ago

Hello Tommy-The opportunity you are referring to is what we like to call an immediate need opportunity, meaning the providers needs music as soon as possible.

Broadjam Customer Support posted over 30 days ago

Hit Zone - Good catch. That's an artifact. Thanks for letting us know.

Hello CS - it seems profiles no longer show artist info and news or am I missing something? Also do you know when the FAQ help will be available again?
Thank you - Michael Nickolas

Broadjam Customer Support posted over 30 days ago

Hello Studio Nine --- The artist info appears at the top of your Public Profile page and this text can be edited when you place your cursor over "Account Settings" and select "My Artist Info."

As for News - we are currently making some upgrades to this feature, so it will be unavailable for the time being. In the meantime, however, you can post any news you have using the comments feature (just leave a comment on your own page and all of your connections will be able to see it.)

Emmanuel Lawrence posted over 30 days ago

The artist news section seems to be gone from the first page. Was good to have it there as "headline or breaking news" info .

Spitting Lama MIDI posted over 30 days ago

I'm starting to enjoy the new format. But please, Roy, find a better way to screen reviewers. And force people to read a reviewing tutorial and agree to it before reviewing songs. Stuff like: "When to use N/A" and "Five is better then One". Yeeesh...we all work hard and want an honest shake for people to hear our music.

Broadjam Customer Support posted over 30 days ago

Spitting Lama MIDI - We wanted to address a few things for you.

Keep in mind, the peer-ratings your songs receives for licensing opportunities do not determine whether or not your song will be picked. The opportunity provider makes this decision on his/her own.

And as for the general reviews (where members score each category between 1 and 5), we ask all reviewers to include some constructive feedback on how the song can be improved, unless they think the song is fine the way it is. If you receive a review that does not meet this requirement, please let us know.

For 5 years I've been asking to be able to 'return to the previous page' in the song review section.....Jesse has told me that he agrees that this is important and will be changed....yes, but havn't seen it yet...its really a drag to want to go to the previous page and get sent to someplace
completely irrelevant!
Please fix this!
Thank You!

Hit Zone/Bureau of Music posted over 30 days ago

Agreed; a little flexibility in viewing would be sweet.

We found peer reviews to be very helpful and used them to select and tweak the cuts for Reed's "Raw, Rare, Well Done" CD. After a few years we've accumulated several hundred reviews and it is difficult to navigate the group. We ended up cutting and pasting into Excel to create usable summaries.

The "play" button is handy, but it would be nice to see the song title displayed with the review detail and to be able to step through reviews by either date or title.

rp music posted over 30 days ago

Whew......glad someone else besides me notices this!
We have 1300 reviews!
A shame that its fairly useless because b'jam apparently
refuses to fix this....Jesse acknowledges that this is a good idea!
So what's the problem?

Thanks for the very helpful review of "Dogs of War". Since the version you heard is only a songwriter's demo, and since I am working on finishing it right now for a video your suggestions came at the perfect time, and I will definitely incorporate them into the final version. Thanks so much! Al

Hit Zone/Bureau of Music posted over 30 days ago

You've got a good start and great raw materials. Looking forward to hearing it soon.
