HI BUCK, YES I THINK I'VE GOT SEVERAL GREAT THINGS HAPPENING THROUGH MY OWN DOING. HAD TONS OF UNDER CONSIDERATIONS HERE BUT NOT A THING GOT CUT. SONG PLUGGER GOT NOTHING. BUT THIS HAS BEEN A GREAT WEEK FOR ME. I'M REAL CLOSE ! HOW YOU DOING ? LOU
Hi Lou. Great news! I've also got a couple things close, and like you it had nothing to do with BJ. BJ just doesn't work fpr my music so i stopped all submissions. Got some good things going through publishers.
WoW nINA...Top ten already...Ya! Cooooooooool..jay
lol thanks I have been writing a lot more lately even though my program isn't that great.
G...What's going on ?? Just listened to your 3 tracks.Always loved your style.So Very Authentic . Just Great Stuff.Have u been selected here at all.Let me know what your doing.
Hey JJ! Great to hear from you! Thanks for checking up on me! All is going well. I'm signed to a dozen publishers and getting placements. Two of my tracks are under consideration for a film on here. I just keep writing. What's happening for you??
Well G...Got those (2) Placements last winter with "William Shatner's -Aftermath-Unibomber and DC Sniper" and Martha Stewarts-Weddings in the Bahamas.This year sold (6) songs to a German Outfit.
I have had (6) considerations with no placements on the Jam.Just can't seem to catch a break here.Am I crying??
Not Yet ::))...jAY
Congrats on the placements and the 6 songs to the German outfit! Can't cry about that!!! In this business we have to be prepared to wait a long time. You never know when something might give.
Thanks G..U R right..Just got a placement conformation on Saturday.Ya Jay ::)) It was from another Library.Your right ! It's a waiting game,and U never know when something is gonna Pop.
U keep going.Your doing Great.Proud of U G !!!!!
Yahooo! Congrats JJ! I'm so happy to hear this! I always feel that we're all in this together and one person's success makes us all that bit more successful. Here's to many more to come! *Clink* the champagne!
Nina..Your Brother and Dad told me U were not on the Jam.When did U join? Your Music is Top shelf.Great Lyrics too.To get a over all of the software I use ,I would have to talk to U Personally! Maybe call me after 5 on Monday.
I dont have your number
pretty cool--i put it over on my facebook for the fans to hear--5 stars!--country/pop/jazz/swing/what
a cool mixture--i like it!--cheers-NJ----what she wants is a guy with lots of money and a credit card with no limit!--yee haw!
Lol ya got that right! Thanks Joe!
hey bucster--i woke up thinking about your new song--ha ha!--pretty neat idea--hell--i like the whole thing-nj
Excellent. My publisher loved it but asked me to cut the horns for a tv placement. I love them horns....lol
yes--i thought the horns help make the whole thing really neat--maybe we should be country music genre changers--hell--if they can do country rap--we can do what we want! enuff said--who would have ever thought that reggae would be injected into some country songs--cheers--nj
Funny thing Guy's..When U watched the Winner on American Idol sing his song.He always had that Nice Blond Girl playing that Horn.Very Cool !! Just like "Buc's Song" If the song is Great,doesn't matter what Instruments are on it .As long as it's hip! JMO::))
Hey Joe, got a lot of action already with that song. Had a half dozen artists interested in it. Two country and two R&B. It looks like this one may get cut. Keep your fingers crossed! Buc
hey buc--that is really cool--the fans on facebook liked it pretty good too awhile back--best!--joe
I wrote a new song for TV/Film. Any feedback welcome! It's called "What She Wants". It's a more jazz/swing/pop type song.
This is absolutely,,,Hands Down..The best Piece of Music U have Done Today !!! The Song itself is Great !!
Lyrics and Vocal are Superb.! Musician-ship..So tight and the drummer..top shelf.!!! The song is just the right length
and the Horn Solo and the key change finish it off just great.The ending is strange ,but U said it was a rough Cut.
I just absolutely love it.I can here all the Big Dog Artist doing the song.Got to go back and dig it again.
Way to Go Buc..Was worth the Money Dude..Jay
Two big thumbs up - great chorus!!
Thanks a lot guys! The final mix is almost done. It'll be finished tonight sometime.
Hey Bill...U must be getting Older,,Your Voice is maturing into Greatness.I enjoyed this new song/lyrics/Vocal and the Performance.
Good Luck With It...Jay
Hey Lorri..I have to agree with Kate on this one.I like the thought behind it,but the hi hat thing is taking away from the scheme of things.Your not right on the beat with the Vocal in Places I think this could be very cool track.Just need to listen to it at make some changes so it fly's.Maybe the Country feel could be the Ticket here.
Keep working at it...Jay
Thanks John for your ears and advice... definitely will change up and see if it works better. "hi hat" ?? Help me understand that though? OK ?? Thanks. Lori
Ya Lorri..The hi hat being a constant thing going on with no variation,sounds to mechanical and forces u to loose sight of the story that u r trying to portray. Putting it more simply..it doesn't fit the song good.JMOP
"Promises" Wow..Got to tell U..Top Shelf Here !! Music is Great !Great Performance and choice of sounds! Very Well put together! Great Vocal! A little long for my taste,But when something is that Good...Who Cares.Just Beautiful !!! Will Listen to more.
Hey Mark...It's another "GOOD ONE" I can see this piece fitting in to a lot of TV/Film Placements and on the RADIO !! It kinda reminds me of my life ant the Jam... Ha! Ha!
Well maybe yours too.. Ha! Ha! again.:)
Anyway... I love it !!! Best of luck with it and talk 2 u soon,
Thanks Jay. Beth thinks she may have this one placed. Doing the paperwork now.
Got the fingers crossed on this one..Good Luck!!
Bill...NO SURPRISE HERE !! WoW...Album of the Year
Best Contemporary Instrumental Album
Best Cover Art.

Yes...I did receive my second royalty check in January.They are still doing William Shatners Aftermath every Saturday Morning on the Biography Channel.The "Unibomber will be on this Saturday at 7:a.m. They have aired those 2 episodes 4 times since my first check.And they keep showing them, Ya!!! As far as Martha Strewart,I haven't even saw it at all.I check to see if it's around but no Cigar.Sure would just like to find it on TV!missing out on that Royalty Money...Mazz was telling me I'll get European Royalty's too. It takes about 2 years for those funds to surface.Well ,,at least it's something. Nothing Happening here,Got to more Provider Down loads but no action yet.
We will get together soon for Breakfast.Got to wait till the Snow is Done.Have a a Good One..Jay
Hey John. If you get a sec listen to my latest tune "Thinkin' Bout Drinkin'. I just played it for Beth and she signed it right away! Playing for a TV series tommorrow!
I'm producing a new children's TV show called "Forever Frineds". It's aimed at kids between the ages of 3 and 7 years old. The idea is to teach inclusion for people with and without disabilities. That inside we're all the same and have the same wants and needs and everyone has something to contribute. I'm doing the camera, sound and editing/animation. It stars Chris Burke from the former hit TV show on ABC called "Like Goes On'. He played the character of "Corky Thatcher". Chris is a very dear friend and we've had a lot of fun working on this project. His partners Joe and John DeMasi write and record all the music. They recentley did a show with Clay Aiken. Clay's not-for-profit organization is considering helping out with some of the production costs. Chris is also taping a segment for entertainment tonight this week about how he has opened the door for so many actors with disabilities. If you get a chance check out the web site. There's a demo of the first episode posted. www.ForeverFriendsShow.org.
Hey Buc...Glad to see U got the Show off the Ground and Running.Will Check it out tonight after the Tax Man goes..Ha! Ha! Give Ya call next week. Ya! Buc
That's a marvelous job you are doing! God bless!
Thanks a lot Did Rhuu! It looks like we might get funding for another 14 episodes. If so, maybe I'll be posting for more children's songs on broadjam!
Sounds good John. Give me a hollar anytime! I'm in edit mode now to get these shows finished up and move on to the next step!
Just noticed I spelled the show title wrong.. forever friends...ooops
Chris Burke is scheduled to do an interview tomorrow night, Friday Feb. 17th on Entertainment Tonight. (7 PM Eastern) He is suppose to be talking about his role as "Corky Thatcher" on ABC's TV series "Life Goes On", and how he has opened the doors for many other people with disabilities in the entertainment field. They did tell him he could be bumped if they needed more time to cover Whitney Houston's funeral. If so they will re-schedule.
Chris got bumped for Whitney. Makes sense.
Chris got bumped a second time for Whitney. She was a much bigger star, but enough already! Hopefully he'll be on this week!
Go Vin Go...jj
Thanks JJ, I'm pedaling fast...
Hey Buc...Congratz on the Top Tenner...Ya!
Never red your Bio before..Wow..Didn't know about all that stuff. I see U in a new Light now.

So Talented and a great Guy to boot.I'm going to listen to all your new stuff tonight.Good things happened to my self in the last couple days.I received a nice Royalty check for placements on "William Shatners Unabomber..Confessions of a DC Sniper ...and Martha Stewarts wedding bayou to the Bahamas..Finally getting some due..lol Happy for your Success !! Be talking 2 u soon.
Very proud for you John. Keep this news out front the door has opened and you have stepped through. Only good things lay ahead for you. Bill
Thanks for the detailed review of my song "Wild Flower" After listening of the first New Age track in your song list,I understand your views.
You are welcome Jay
Mine is not of course meditative , I wrote that owing to the chosen sub-genre .
Wow...Another good review from U Guy's !! "Nine One One" was the track.Edgy/ Haunting/rock.Well appreciated.
Thanks for the great review of "Phycotronic" I am re-doing this track now.U are right ! It needed more freak out stuff'
Listen to some of stuff...Good Shit Man!!!
I'm so glad I could help you. I really liked your song. I wish you the best of luck with it. Rusty Newcomer
"Real Deal" Hot !!
LOL....Thanks Jay, they got a good cut on it, that's for sure!
thanx Buc for your review of Second Chance (male version)...think you're right mostly on more separation from verse/chorus, but i had it resung years back female version, which i think helped some...it's on my page same title "female"...
thanx much for your comments
ps...don't listen to the Pelsone dude, he's a ...wait, HI JOHNNY!
Lol. You know the J man?
well not personally, but we've been chatting on/off for a coupla+ years, started on the old taxi forum...
I met him on taxi and found out he lived ten miles away. So we met for breakfast. He's a talented composer.
yes he is! but he gets pissed like we all do when nothin's happening when it should be--but we keep on! ah, the old taxi days, some fun, some not so...
I think Someones talking about me.I think it's those 2 country Boys.No Wait" One's a singer song writer.Both Heavy Duty Boys Looking for a Break. I'm looking at 4 considerations/
two- 99's...two 100's...and can't catch a crumb.lol
But I'm not angry...Ha! Ha!.Glad we all know each other!
LOL..I hear ya...Four 100% but no placements! LOL Just keep trying...one of these days!
...story of my life in a nut shell...i'm spending too much here to get many 90+ and 100's too, but more so getting clobbered by tunes that don't seem to fit the description
at all--but keep rolling the dice boys, i aint quittin'...
Well Boys...If things get worse as time goes by...We can always get together and split a bottle of "ORTHO" Ha! Ha!
Just take me out back and shoot me !!
ortho my "butt"--something more pleasing to the palate please! lol, i've always loved that ortho comment JJ, hey Buc, shouldn't it be ROUNDUP? ha! yippee you kayak!
How about mixing some of those Grapes of yours and lots of ice..jjp
I just put a old track up that I Found and tried to re-master it.I'd like to re-record it if U think it's any good.
have a listen and let me know.Be Honest now.Think it's Dated and seen it's day..."Set Me Free"
I'll take a listen. A few cold ones before summers gone sounds good to me! I like ice picks(Vodka and sweet ice tea) in the summer, burbon and cokes(Jim Beam and diet pepsi) in the winter! I'm not a big drinker though....anymore.
We will get together again before it gets Cold.how about at the Peach Festival ?? Chelsea is entered again.We could slop down on those peach cobblers and have a couple.
That sounds good to me. The peach festival is coming up soon isn't it! LCTV has asked me to run one of the camera's for the parade. I will more than likely do it. Gotta make all the money I can to keep doing a demo here and there! I don't know if we're doing the pageant this year or not. I'll ask tomorrow. Hope to meet up with you there!
JJ, i just sent you a massage, to wherever...i love Set Me Free, yeah, it's dated, but has the right vibe for placement...see my other comments, wherever they went!....have Wade remix this for you, no offense, another ear might work...
the best, i dig the tune! wh
Wow..."Real Deal" Got 2 tell U....Gave me the chills right out of the Box !! Nashville Boys did U Super Justice on this recording. Just a Super Hot Tune.Great Vocal/Performance/choice of sounds with the Banjo/great lyrics.
Got to go back and dig it again.!!
Your right there again my Man..Jay
Hey Jay, thanks for the feedback. I got an A+ for lyrics, good originality and production from the pro writers. Didn't score well on the music progression. Was told it needed more contrast musically to be a hit.
I think I'm going to have them master this one and test it out in a few dance clubs. I think the recording came out excellent. The tracks are poppin' for sure! They picked their butts off and the vox kick ass! I may need to do some re-writing, but I'd like to test it as is first.
