No thanks, close this window
I need to make a video for my work and didn't want cheesy soul-less music. Old Man at the Bar hits it out of the park! Thank you, John Worsham for making good soulful music available to regular people.
Hey There John! "Another --" great idea and song. very nicely executed, impressieve bio as well. Good Luck and Keep On Truckin! Next time you see the Boz tell him Catnip Pat said hi!!
Sho nuff, buddy! and thanks!
Hi! I have to smile cause " she deserved the best" was selected , Congrats!! I knew that was a great song when I heard it ( one of my favs) and I always knew that had so much potential :) !!! Best of luck!!
Thanks, Julia! Selected for what?
Lol:) A country opp. You haven't gotten an email?! Yours and a few others were selected:)
Just gave Perfect Fit a "Best" rating on Song of the Month...really cool little tune. Glad to have discovered it and best of luck :-)
Thanks so much, Doug! The guy playing harmonica is Tollak Olmstead, who played on the theme of the TV show,"Northern Exposure". He's also worked with Natalie Cole, Gino Vanelli, Earth Wind and Fire, and others. I was very lucky to get him.
Wow John. Pretty cool.
" when we meet again" gave me tears.. Wow. So touching and heartfelt.. If I were your son, that song would bring me back to you!!:)... Prayers for reconciliation and healing....... Thanks for touching so many hearts with your music!!
Thanks so much, Julia. It's a song that will never be done live, and it's even hard for me to listen to it.
I understand .. Music can be healing though for the turbulent heart and soul...even within our own family circles..... Prayers are with you and your son....
Took a Long Time.... Great song, great mix! You fired me up!
Wow! Thanks, Jeff! I appreciate it.
Great tune! ! Phil Collins vibe with your vocals John!!.:))
Thanks, Julia! You're so nice.
Julia, please listen to the new song I just uploaded, and give me your thoughts. Thanks!
Okie-dokie! ..just saw you posted a new one...just about to give a listen:)
Great song!.love the sentimental lyrics and emotional vocals..awesome bridge and how the sax comes in and stays throughout the rest of the song!..great guitar playing..lots going on that's great about it !!:)) I was harmonizing along towards the end:)
Thanks! I'm hoping it finds a good home!
Hey John all all is well! !..absolutely LOVED " Lorraine"!!.wow the lyrics were incredible as was your vocals and the production! !!! What a catchy tune!!! Oh and of course your awesome chord changes!!:)))
We gotta get more fans on your page besides me!!.LOL!!!:))
Aw, you are very sweet to say that. I played "Lorraine" last month at the bar she worked in, and they had me do it 3 or 4 times, I can't remember. I need to start a new business where I write songs about people who've passed - for a fee, of course. I have no idea how this song will go over in the marketplace though.
Well I could hear it easily in a film!!..ya NEVER know!!!:))...Lorraine sounds like quite a lady!!!! Really loved it!!
Another gem, John. Thanks for pointing this one out, Julia.
Much to my amazement, Little On has gone to #4 in the Folk - Country chart. It's on my list to be rerecorded in a few weeks so hopefully it will be even better then?
Goes to show, anything can happen!
Thanks for liking "Lorraine", Bob. I appreciate it!
Julia, I have a song that I think you may be able to really do a good job on. I haven't found a female vocalist who sings the song well yet, and I've used two. They just don't quite capture the feel. Let me know if you're interested.
Sure John,send me an email through Broadjam and then I can give you my personal email:)! Thanks for thinking of me!, or just give me your email...:)
email@example.com is mine. I'll send you 2 mp3s - one with vocals and one without.
Beautiful cover of" I only have eyes for you"... I get all sentimental when I hear a harmonica, my dad plays it all the time:)... He loves to sing and and write sweet little songs to us and his grandchildren:)).... And I know he has sang that song to my mom at some point;)! Have you heard my Christmas songs?... Today is a " Winter wonderland" here:) 3 of them are on unique- holiday top 10:)...anyways,, best as always with your amazing music!!!
Yes I have, and they're great, Julia! I recently did "I only have eyes" at a show and had a guy fill in with a muted trumpet for the harmonica part. It was way better, I thought.
Thanks!! Well, I am sure it may have sounded better to you:) but would not have given me the same effect:)) so I love it the way I heard it!! And thanks again for the nice compliment on my Christmas songs:)!!
Julia, I just added a few new pics that I had done last week. Let me know what you think.
Came out real nice!! Copy cat!! LOL:)
Hi! I meant to ask you if you have a song called " 20 yrs. ago" or something like that,, I was reviewing a song and I believe it was one of yours but it didn't allow me to cont. the review for whatever reason!...
No, I sure don't. It should let you pull it up by title, I think.
Love the new pics, Julia! I need to have new shots done too.
Thanks John! Your pics are pretty cool!:).. My older pitures were just everyday shots... My friend's daughter did my new ones:)... and I have been wanting to have them done with my new guitar!!
Yes, lovely new photos Julia. I want that guitar!
Thanks Dianne!! I love it too!!:)
Hi Julia .. loved He can find your heart! Congrats on making 10 Ten! ... I made it too, Highway of Holiness! ... I'm originally from Yardville, NJ! Now, in Bristol, PA ... Blessings! Elisabeth Genco
Hi Elisabeth!! Thank you soo much! It's funny you commented to me because I noticed you on the same chart and when I got a second wanted to listen to your song/ songs too:)... I love the title of yours, so I will def. check it out!! Congrats too :)... Blessings.. Julia
What is Bristol near in Pa.?:)
we are about 20 min from Philly ... near the Delaware (across from Burlington, NJ) ... if you're ever in the area our church has a Abba Java Coffee House and I'm sure our coordinator would love to book you ... it would be an opportunity to promote your music and sell your CDs ... they always take a "love offering" for the visiting artist.
That's very sweet, thank you! Only prob is I think we are further away than I thought:(!! But if we ever cross eachother's area we should keep in touch!!!:). Blessings always... Julia
Absolutely .. we can keep in touch via Broadjam!
Hi! I have to admit when I saw you added a new song I was happy!:)..... Yet seize to amaze!!! Another great song!! And of course I have said this time and time again, FILM songs!!! For sure!!:) best in 2014!!.. Julia
Yeah, this is an old one for a new category of "songs that say 'I'm sorry'". I almost forgot I had it in the archives. Thanks for all the encouragement, and I hope you and your family have a great 2014 too!
You are welcome!! Oldies are goodies!! Lol... :)
Just put up a new song, "Better Late", that I co-wrote with David Murphy. Tell me what you think.

Great style as usual!!!:)have you checked out my new Christmas songs?!( just posted before Christmas)..... Hope your new Years' going great!! I also did a collab with Earl C.

Could be heard in a film! ( not just your holiday ones)!
You too, Julia! I hope you and your family are having a blast this week. Thanks so much for the comment too.
Surely!!!! Yup lots of skiing/ snowboarding!! Thank goodness we got our season passes earlier, we are all wiped out financially with the holidays! But we have so much to be thankful for!! Our family , health and happiness... Have a good one and a Happy New Year!!
Thanks Brian for the compliment about "Should've been better". I truly appreciate it! I'm listening to your stuff too. Excellent!
Hello..just wanted to say yet again.. "I should have been better( on my playlist)... Has to be one of my favs in every way!! Everytime I listen to it.. I have tears.... Thks again for sharing your music.. The song" She deserves the best" has a similar affect for sure.. I am looking forward to hearing more of your songs... God Bless you.... Julia:)
" She deserved the best" on my playlist as well:)
Thanks so very much, Julia! It encourages me to keep going!
You betcha!!! Keep up the inspiring/ awesome work!!... Blessings!... Julia:)
Congrats!! I knew it about my fav song.. Literally!!!!... I am trying to endorse you.. It 's not letting me :(.... I have endorsed others today since I think I am finally getting a hang of Broadjam!lol..... Many Blessings!.....julia:)
Thanks, Julia! did you see where 4 country artists are looking at both songs right now? Did you ever see my video of "Angels sent from heaven", about children who die too early? Go to my YouTube page and take a look!
Where do I find that about the country artists?.... That's awesome!!:)
Will def. check out that video... I am sure I will need tissues, yet once again... Lol... Thks!
Just saw your video... Amazing/ beautiful.. Speaks directly to my heart.. My parent's lost their son at age 7 to a brain tumor.... He died 2 years before I was born.... I am in the long process of writing a song about him called" our little boy"... My husband and I are new at all this technology for recording my songs etc.. So we are in the process of getting cakewalk.. Cause I have had a few wanting to use my vocals for their songs:) .. So I am excited to share my God-given talent and have other's share their producing talent!!! Anyway sorry for rambling....... Great song and video!!.... Blessings.. Julia
Good songs on here John, I like your vibe...Randy Neuman-esqe in spots
Thanks, Miles! He's one of my idols. I really try to emulate him in "Another man's problem", and "Old man at the bar". Thanks for listening!
Old Man I can hear it for sure..nce job. Check out my tracks when you can!
I'll do that, Miles. Thanks!
call me GP ;)
Ok, GP. I loved what I heard! Really great stuff. I'm really envious.
DAH! Envy is silly...everyone does things differently and we all have diff. styles...unless youre Miley Cyrus and then you just copy everyone lol.
Seriously though, I cant play guitar...I have a melody in my head and I sing it to my co-writer until we get chording down. Point is, we all want to be able to do something we cant ;)
Wow!! Is all I can say with the song" I should have been better"!! I am sitting here with my kids/ husband.. balling my eyes out and they are asking " mom, what's the matter" I just said " this song, this song"!! Very touching, beautiful lyrics, nice accoustic guitar.. Nice vocals.. Very clear.... And the message is sooo true!! Never take a day for granted!! Life is too short.. Looking forward to listening to more of your music!! God Bless you and thank you..... Julia Schmidt
Let's connect:)... Julia
Thanks so very much, Julia! I love hearing good things about songs I write. My publisher in LA didn't really like this song, and I'm starting to question his validity. Have you heard my song,"She deserves the best"? You might like that one too. I'm going to check out your stuff too. Thanks again!
Ok! I am running out of tissues!! There is something about your songs that just gets to my heart... The lyrics... The vocals, the chord changes.... Absolutely brilliant! Is all I can say!! Love your style of music... If you ever need a female vocal.. Just shout.. I would be more than honored.... God Bless you!!:)
She deserves the best.. Is what I was referring to with the last comment... Amazing! Thank you!!.. Julia
gee, thanx again Julia for your kind review this time of the piano/vocal "I'm Taking Care of Me". all the best. Warren
Anytime!!! All the best to you, Warren!.. Blessings. Julia
Thanks so much, Julia, for liking my song,"Should've been better"! I love your song, "All my heart" as well. I'm surprised you only have 4 songs on your profile. Do you and John have more?
Yes another will be posted tonight:)"stranger"... I am writing more songs, I have about 10 plus more.. I need to record and need a recording-arranger.. If I want more than to post my vocals/ and accoustic... It has been 10 yrs. since I recorded!( kids in the meantime) lol and looking to get back into it a bit more seriously)! I will take a listen to the song you recommended I would like:)..... Many Blessings... Julia:)
Plus I have only been here almost 3 wks... I am truly thankful with all the song plays and positive comments/ connections in such a short amount of time:)... Julia
Thank u J. let us?
Great rendition of Georgia! Smooth and steady. Love it!
Thanks a lot, Adam! I appreciate it!
John, Really like the "Hallelujah, I Love Her So" cover. I've heard your others and, although I appreciate the hard work you put in, they are not what I am looking for. I think you should stick in the style of this cover, it seem well suited to you and your voice. This is not negative criticism, so please do not take it that way. Look forward to hearing more.
Thanks so very much! It's great to know that someone is listening. This is the first comment I have ever gotten. I love the "challenge" aspect of arranging a well known song in a different way. I have stretched more as an artist this year by joining Broadjam than I ever have before. I finished three songs last week alone! My kids are sort of partial to my male version of "We Are Family" though. It's sort of laughable, but it was fun to do. Just let me know what particular direction you would like a song to take, and I would love the chance to make it the way you would want it to be. Thanks so much for your input. I do appreciate it!
Cool. In the same vein of Hallelujah, I would do (all songs are on the same covers listing) "Get Happy", "Someone to Watch Over Me", "Feel Like Making Love" (might be a stretch), "Maybe It's Because of You" and "Hit the Road jack". No preference, but I think you'd have fun with them. Look forward to hearing...
I am in the process of recording the songs you listed. Would you want me to re-record any of the other big production songs I submitted, but this time just do it with guitar and vocal? Just wondering.
Up to you. Be creative.
Can you send me a mastered WAV or AIF file. You can send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes, Michael, I can. It is on it's way.
Congratulations on having had one or more of your songs "selected" from the pitch opportunities. I was wondering if you were ever contacted and if you feel that making pitches to Broadjam has been a good financial decision for you. Thank you, Donna email@example.com
Well, I did get three songs placed with two different publishing companies last year, so that's a good thing. I have one on hold with Capitol/Nashville this year, but that's through Taxi. Financially, it has not paid off yet, but I do hope that cuts will come in the future.
