Su voz nunca deja de moverme. Navidad Alegre a Rumania, lo puede encontrar la Paz.
I don't know what language that is, but I suppose you were saying "Happy New Year" or something, so thanks and Happy Holidays to you too! :)
Oui, Cheri! It was Spanish, which is the language of the American southeast (especially Miami). But is was supposed to be French. I get them mixed up sometimes as they are both similar Romance Languages. I am planning on releasing a couple of French tunes in 2015 to honor my American Indian ancestors who we pushed into Canada and sided with the French during the French Indian wars in a failed attempt to reclaim their native land. But the message to you was: Your angelic voice never stops moving me, or Votre voix angélique n'arrête jamais de me déplacer. Looking forward to something new from you in 2015! - N
Congrats for "Eternal Sorrow", sounds really promising. Wish we could've heard more... best of luck with your health!
Thank you for your kind words and encouragement. The songs I have on Broadjam are previews, they're actually completed, but you're just hearing a portion of each song since they're for sale on other sites.
Simona, is your music for sale anywhere?
Yes, it is: http://simonaradu.bandcamp.com/music 1
Thanks for asking!
Thank you! :)
No, I thank you! :)
I love "Kitty Little Nighttime Diddy", it's such a lovely idea to use "the music of the insects"! Never stop exploring those unseen worlds, and I hope your health keeps improving everyday, as an expression of the beautiful music you make!
Simona, thank you for your good wishes! I am happy that you enjoyed the "Diddy," it was a fun way to incorporate nature into my music! I look forward to listening to more of your awesome music and I hope to continue to share more of my music too!
I heard this song in a contest, and I was so disappointed because I could not find it in a search. Yay! I finally discovered your music! So happy to hear "I am I" again! ;) This song reminds me of Alanis Morisette.
Thank you very much, Darius, that's a huge compliment!
Thank you for the 5***** on "Necessary Detour"
I'm listening to your "I Am I" presently; beautiful song, and love your harmonies! Best of everything on your musical journey.
Thank you Cyndi, likewise!
Thank you Simona!
TY SO much for the 5-star on Happy Accident! ~GP
You're welcome, I really enjoyed it!
Thaf's why we do what we do, right? :)
Hi Simona, BUTTERFLY, is a good song. Good message! Just wanted to tell you I enjoyed it. :)
Hi Simona!! Beautiful songs!!! All I have listened to so far are 5 ***** and playlist adds!! " I am I", " Butterfly" and " blindfold!! Great vocals.. So crystal clear!!!.. Many blessings... Julia:)
Thank you so much, Julia! :)
Just reposted one of my early,my favorites, "Do it All Over Again" Still test driving my voice. Almost nine weeks since I quit smoking. I hear a difference. I hope someone else does too. Thanks all.
Congrats on quitting smoking that's great!
Is it ok to say I am proud of myself? No matter, I will say it anyway. Thank you.
Hey Calvin, you should be proud for quitting smoking! Stay strong and enjoy the benefits of a better health! And keep making good music! :)
Way to go Calvin!!!!:)))
Thank you all.
Congrats, Calvin! You won that fight, it is a tough one, I know that!
Hi Simona: You have been quiet for a while but burst back onto the scene in a big way. "I Am I" is an awesome song and I am excited for you on this one. All the best.
Thank you, Calvin! I've been travelling for a while, doing a bit of soul searching... hence the theme of "I Am I"! :))
Think you found something there in that song any way. Good job. :-)
Amazing songs and vocals!!!!!, Simona:)))
BLOOD STAINED!--WOW--WHAT A GREAT COMPOSITION--THANXS--joe.---5 stars too!

NOT LIKE A BEE--pretty cool song--glad I got to hear this one today!--thanxs--I gave it 5 stars!--YEAH!--JOE.
Simons, I am so glad you found your Gorilla! I love my Monkey Shine. May we both rock into the new year and onto new heights. You remain an Earthly Delight. -LovePop
Thank you Nick, may you and your Monkey Shine celebrate this coming year with love and joy!
Simmer..................... you don't post new songs very often but when you do It reminds me of why I wanted to connect with you. Such an original approach. I love it.
Great job... kenney
Thanks Kenny! Btw, you were right about calling me Simmer...2013 was a great year for me! :)
Interesting tracks here...nice lyrical ability! ~GP
Thank you very much!
NP! Check mine out when you can! :)
Hi Simona, I found "Not Like A Bee" on a friend's playlist today and ended up listening to every one of your songs. I like them all. You have a wonderful voice. It's so engaging, ethereal... I think could listen to you sing anything. Production on your songs is great, too. I can't say enough. Great job.
Thank you, Shawn, much appreciated!
Hey Robert, thanks for the endorsement... this must be a new feature, I didn't know about it until now.
Btw, I really enjoyed listening to "Ice blue"... got me in a deep transcendental state! Kudos! :)
I just recently caught on to that feature, too, Simona. Glad you liked Ice Blue, and congratulations on all your recent TV and radio success! I really enjoyed that live performance (meaning the concert one) where you were so perfectly in the moment and on pitch. So many platinum selling artists don't pull that off, live. You did.
Thank you, thank you! I'll be leaving for US in a week. If I somehow get near the Vermont area, I'll let you know... maybe we can get to even meet each other, who knows... :)
That would be ultra-cool, Simona, but I think I'm probably very far from where you'll be. Regardless, I know you'll enjoy seeing your sister, and having a wonderful time in NY (my favorite city!!!) and Los Angeles (my original hometown). Have a great trip!!!
Please free up some of your music so it can be enjoyed !
Hi Tony, you can download my music for free here: http://simonaradu.bandcamp.com/ 1
Thank you for the interest!
hi simona, thanks for the link!
you're welcome, Gordon!
Thanks Simona and the two songs are delicious
I'm glad to hear that, Tony. There are more than 2 songs available for download, the others can be found here: http://simonaradu.bandcamp.com/album/a-million-others-like-me 1
Simona That is fantastic to allow your music to be heard free and now I can play it on the radio station I present two shows each week on CAIRNS FM 89.1 in Queensland Australia
Great! Thanks, Tony! :)
Congrats for Invictus making it into Vermont Top 10!!
Thanks, Simona. Not sure I know what to make of the system / criteria for Top Ten's anymore with the way they come and go, but I appreciate that you noticed and commented.
As long as they can keep out the riff raff, like US and the EDC's we'll know that the systems working.
Well done Robert. Keep em coming.
Thank you, Miguel. Ha Ha, Kenney. If US&EDC aren't there something's wrong! I was just commenting on how erratic it seems. I think that must be either because BJ changes the criteria, or tabulates the numbers all at one time, at various points in time. I notice that a lot of my songs jump into the Top Tens at the same time there's a lot of activity with other artists making the lists, and also falling out at those times. Last week I had two songs at #2 (Hard Rock and Heavy Metal categories) and both disappeared entirely from the charts on the same day, while another one of my old songs hit the Industrial chart on that same day.
Hey Robert, Great work on "Incarnate", love the changing beat and the layers of sound, could get lost listening to this. Excellent guitar work as usual and the talk box really lifts the track. What did you use for the talk box?
Thanks, Tommy. I have a lot of fun with that effect. Wish I could get away with using it more often. It's not a talk box though, it's a formant filter on my Fractal Axe-Fx, which was running through a Fractal Audio Systems amp sim that's based on the Mesa sound. Here's the cut and paste on the formant filter from the Fractal Wiki: "The wah was originally intended to mimic the sound of the human voice but obviously falls a little short. A formant filter is an extension of the wah principle but operates on the concept of formants. Formants are resonances in instruments, cabinets, and, in this case, the human vocal tract that give sounds their character. The human vocal tract generates a handful of formants that produce the vowel sounds we recognize. For example the vowel sound "eee" can be reproduced with a bank of narrow bandpass filters with various frequencies and amplitudes. The Axe-Fx Formant Filter allows "talk-box" effects without the fuss and muss of the real thing."
I thought it was a talk box too... that's such a cool effect, works well with the electronic groove! You keep surprising me, Robert! :)
Thanks Simona. It does sound something like a talk box. To keep surprising gets progressively more difficult, but.... I'll see what I can do!!!
Simona: Very good tune,Too Happy for a Rock Star. Congrats on your top ten. Calvin
Thank you, Calvin... Top 10 is a pleasant surprise! :)
Indeed they are pleasant surprises. I used to get one every once in a while but I've gone through a dry spell. I thought my newer songs were better . Maybe not. Anyhow you deserve your selection.
Brilliant collaboration, it's incredible what you guys did in 2 days, very inspiring! Good luck with your submission!
thank you Simona, we were saying the other day just imagine what we could do if we were in the same room!!!!!
Amazing job on "Feels Alright", I especially love the vocal line and the overall feeling of the song. Thumbs up for the vocal performance as well, so warm and sweet on the verse and much more powerful on the chorus... you've got a great vocal range! And knowing this whole song was done in 1-2 days makes me appreciate it even more!
Thanks Simona! I love everything that you've put together from the music to the vocals to the music videos. It's great to get such a nice compliment about a style you do so well. I gotta thank Adam Maxfield hugely for the rock tunes though. We seem to have really clicked while collaborating, and really feed off of each other. Really glad you enjoyed the song!
Simona, You are a Butterfly of Beauty. But your voice out shines all others. Fight for Love, my dear.
Love is All. Blindfold captures my soul. Yes I Will!
Thank you so much, Nick, your comment is a piece of art in itself!
Check out a new tune - Take A Little Time! I'm really happy with this song. Dropped right out of the blue, and took 2 days to write and record. It's not polished but I kinda liked the relaxed simple singer/songwriter sound!
Yet another beautiful song, Nathan. How do you do it???
Hameleon, Now I think your just showin off. Boy that's a nice tune. You have a similar gentle vocal quality as a guy we don't hear so much about any more. Kenny Loggins. Not a comparison at all...... Your work stands on its own merit and the world could sure use your kind of song writing and delivery. Great job and Best of luck with that A
As Dianne said... how do you do it?! I love the simple "singer/songwriter" approach, and the warm sound of your voice. I thrive for that kind of sound on my songs and I rarely get it right! :)
Haha, Thanks everyone! Uncle S - I am a huge Kenny Loggins fan, and there is no doubt that he has impacted my style and production choices at times.
You know what ladies, I don't really know either haha! That song came to me while I was shoveling our van out of a huge drift that blew in after a blizzard here. I often feel like I'm just the lucky guy that the song fairy decided to drop these songs on! A tiny bit of it is that I couldn't really put in words how much I love music. That and being somewhat of a Walter Mitty daydreamer whose thoughts never stops wandering down rabbit trails in the abstract of my mind. What ever it is it often feels like something completely outside of myself and I'm just very humbled and grateful that it does happen. You are all so awesome and encouraging. Thanks for sharing your thoughts
Hi Simona. "Butterfly" = Excellent tune. This kind of positive, uplifting song about the REAL game of life isn't so easy to pull off, but you and Manu did a great job making that happen! Loved the lyric and thought the arrangement and performance supported it so well; to bring that big theme to life.
Always great to hear what you think, Robert! Thank you very much!
Hi Simmer, "Butterfly" a really nice work with a strong catchy hook line. Nice job on that one. kenney
Thank you, Kenney! I might adopt "Simmer" as my new nickname, I like it! :)
Sure, why not. I mean ya got
Ya fit right in there. ................ kenney
you forgot to include 'uncle spider' - shame on you
P-go .... I was thinkin "CLOD" I dunno
no hyphen necessary between the P and the go - Mister (Electric Dirt) CLOD. . .
What a great title for such an inspiring piece... i'm curious, did you have that title in mind when working on the song, or it came afterwards? Either way, it fits perfectly... great "out of the box" playing! Congrats to you both!
Thanks, Simona. I think the first development, as it was being constructed was something like: Space aliens land their UFO at a supermarket and purchase a synthetic fireplace log (serious). After that it transitioned to Orca (Peter named it) as it was in the first stages of development, and we continued to expand and build the sounds around that theme.
Very interesting workflow... actually, orca whales are considered superior beings, of the highest vibration. So the theme transition makes sense somehow. :)
Great collaboration on "Orca", Robert & Peter; nice eclectic audio mix of the magical communication skills of these special creatures, whether they be Aliens or whales. Great piece!
Thank you very much, Cyndi!
Robert, if nothing else, you've got a great idea for a comedy SciFi movie...Make them Zombie aliens and you've got a potential hit on your hands. You can call it "ZombAlien".
Good idea, Anthony. You're cut in for 5% on that.
