Hi Fred, thanks for the great review of 'Let's Make Music' I had a bunch of samples that I liked individually and tried to hang them together somehow (there's a bit of me in there as well). If you want to see the accompanying video, its on my site johnevanstunes.com thanks again and good luck

Hi Lawrence, thanks for the great review of Le Havre. It comes from a concept album of mine from a couple of years ago called 'Chums'. It follows three best friends as the join the first world war with one of the Chums regiments. The instrument you were curious about is a mandolin that I made about 10 years ago with a deeper body than most to give it some growl. The album, along with all my music and videos can be found at www.johnevanstunes.com Thanks again and good luck for the future

Hi Jeff, haven't talked for a while. Thanks for the good review of 'Just Like Me', you're right, it is a very personal song and very much autobiographical. As such, I never really expect too much in the way of critical acclaim of songs like this , the writing and perhaps more importantly, the finishing of them is more or less enough. I suppose it means that you can go back to making stuff up again! So I'm really pleased that you enjoyed it and thanks again. Good luck and talk soon. Stay safe.

Hi Kate, thanks for the great review of 'The Somme'. You're right about it setting something up, it's from a concept album (Chums) about 3 best friends who join one of the 'Chums' regiments during World War One. As such it was never really meant to be heard as a stand alone piece so I totally understand your comment about the length of the intro. The album, along with all my music is on johnevanstunes.com , I'm really pleased with the way it turned out but perhaps more importantly the journey the research took me on. Thanks again, haven't talked to you for a while. Stay safe and good luck. John

Hi Cyndi, thank you so much for the 5 star rating of 'I can reach you'. It's a style that I've been involved with for a while now but the first time I've put it out there on BJ. I put the vocal together from numerous unconnected royalty free samples (from the same artist) and then wrote, played and recorded the other tracks. It's a different way of working but I enjoy the variety and it gives me fresh ears and renewed enthusiasm when I return to my acoustic roots. Glad you enjoyed it and thanks again.

By the way, I love your music, and what a great address!!. Stay safe.


John Evans posted over 30 days ago


Sorry, me again. the album 'I can reach you' is from is 'Eyes Closed' and it's on my site johnevanstunes.com ,I'll leave you alone now.


Cyndi Corkran posted over 30 days ago


Hello John,

Thank you for your kind comment! And, have you ever visited Eureka Springs?

Well, I must say, your production on "I can reach you", is seamless, and just a great sound! We all need those "fresh ears", from time to time, and taking a break from a particular style, song, etc., can offer that refreshing, "renewed enthusiasm", of which you wrote.

I will check out your site and other cuts on the album.
Thanks again!

Peace out~
Cyndi

Your site it beautiful! I love "Eyes Closed", and will listen to more, by and by. And thanks for the *****s on "Winds" with Peter Schwepker!

Hi John, thx for nice review of Sweet Summertime. Funny how I have gotten 3 random reviews from you in last couple of weeks, but I sure appreiciate it and am honored. Your recommendations are spot on. In fact, the story right not is that it is kind of a prototype at the moment and i plan to take it down soon, just wanted to get some feedback fot it. I could not play the guitar in proper meter. So my producer put piano music in proper meter and I played to that, however, that made my guitar sound mechanical and not as natural. Then when it was mixed, because the guitar is not that great, the piano and other instruments are more prominent. My feeling, and others too, is that is works best if it is a guitar song, coffee house style, and maybe some other instruments sprinkled lightly in to enhance. I am working on redoing the guitar with proper meter and to sound better and then it should accomplish that. If not, I my hire a better guitarist to handle that. The male vocals are mine, and again you are spot on. I think my vocals are too prominent, and in fact, i am leaning toward bringing in a better male vocalist for the background vocals. Hopefully the female vocals are good. I think some of her lyrics are not that clear. So all in all, will redo the song, but glad to see you like the song itself, just production and arrangement need some work. Thx.

Hi Mate, actually I think your vocal is great, I think it just needs to blend a little more with the female vox. It's a good song and I look forward to hearing what you do with it. Stay safe and good luck. John.

Hi John,

I hope you are well its always good to hear from you on BJ.
I'm finding the same - just not many new songs in this category.
best regards

Laurence


John Evans posted over 30 days ago


Hi Laurence, it's been a while. I Haven't been very active on BJ, to be honest I got a little disillusioned with the whole thing but covid has meant more time on my hands so here I am again. I've been quite active writing and recording with a couple of new albums on johnevanstunes.com but I was a bit surprised to find that the pool of songs waiting to be reviewed was apparently dry! talk soon, take care mate. John.


Laurence Watkins posted over 30 days ago


Hi John,
Great that you've kept writing and recording I'll definitely give them a listen.
I've got a best of and brand new set out over the next few months(ITunes Amazon etc).
You too take it steady as we come out of covid.
Lets keep the music coming from this island !
kindest regards
Laurence
