Hi Roy. I live far away in Ghana. During the lockdown I got my producer Stephen Wrench to record my new single SignOut66 remotely. I would be pleased if you could listen to it and tell me your opinion. Thanks for your time.

Hey Funkmata, Hope all is well in your world. Here are my thoughts.

Love the feel of the this. At first, it reminded a little of Curtis Mayfield, then it got a little heavier. Great opening groove that captures the listener immediately and has a good melody throughout the song. When the lead guitar came in at 19 seconds, I thought of The Munsters theme song. This is a compliment as I loved this as a kid and still do as it is one of the greatest tv theme songs ever. I am not sure why I went there, but it might be the first couple of notes of the guitar part....Being a synth geek, I love the part and player as well. Kudos to him/her and all the players and producer on this. Good sound choices and performances by the everyone. It is clear this band really connects and plays well together.

Sign Out 66 is a quality piece of music and could find it's way to success in film and tv with some edits. Please read on.

Some noise throughout the song coming from the electric guitar, examples at 55 seconds and 1:01. While it's probably the style of the player who is simply grooving and scratching, it jumps out on small speakers. On larger speakers it is not as obvious as it is more divorced from the rest of the instruments. However, I think because of this, it would probably get passed quickly in the tv world. If I was producing, I would surgically pull this part down in the mix or have the guitar player recut and back off a little at these moments. (I am reluctant to suggest this as it is certainly part of his/her groove.)

In summary, great groove, good players, good production. If it was my song, I would tweak the mix just a little.

Hope this helps.
Stay safe.

Thanks Roy. Your input was exceptionally helpful. The track was recorded during the lockdown with pro session men in Nashville. It was produced by Stephen Wrench of fame. Cheers.

How is the man, the myth, the legend during these corona virus times? Hope you are well

Roy Elkins posted over 30 days ago

I am doing well, healthy and safe. I hope the same for you. As a precaution, I was tested a few days ago and everything is ok. Keep producing and we're all coming out on the other side of this much stronger. Peace.

Many thanks for adding my track to Founder CLASSICAL, Mike.

No problem Michael. Excellent work!

Mike L Scott posted over 30 days ago

Wonderful site Roy, really helping my music career. (I'm actually a full time farmer and fit this in around 12 hour days! So it's nice to have a site that works efficiently compared with others I've used.) Mike.

Roy Elkins posted over 30 days ago

Michael, I just moved closer to town recently after living on a farm for 17 years. I miss the planting season and watching the corn come in. Two of our former neighbors still farm our land and I miss them as well. In fact, I am heading out there today to 'walk the land'.....Thank you not only for your great music, but for being a farmer. I have great respect for everyone who works the land....I am going to send a private email and introduce you to a very good friend of mine who is an amazing musician and farmer like you....All the best to you, Roy

Mike L Scott posted over 30 days ago

Hi Roy, message received! I'll give him a shout, very thoughtful of you, thanks. Glad to hear you have a connection with the land, as a farmer I can see most of the world has lost this important 'connection', everybody should at least get the chance to stand in a field very early in the morning and take it all in, bird song, animals going about their business etc, very powerful. I think in the present climate we are getting more thanks usual, around here everyone is stuck in doors whilst we work in the fields around them, they are seeing how much effort is required, but we're just doing our job we were born for. Music keeps me sane to be honest, thanks again for you time, stay safe. Mike.
