Hello, Frank. Thanks for your review of "Happy Day". Glad you liked it. Yuri
Frank, thanks for your review of "Black Felt". Yeah, I tried a dark, heavy and blues-ee vibe on this one. Glad you liked it.
Hey Yuri, thanks for the amazing review on "You are Power". I always thought something was off but couldn't spot it -- I think you nailed it. I'll work on making those changes, I sooooooo appreciate your technical expertise and a million thanks for it because sometimes extra ears are so needed! Cheers ! -diane
Thanks for your review of "Slow and Sad" : "A beautiful yet haunting classical. piece. Love the interplay of the 2 main instruments." A great compliment coming from such an accomplished musician. Wishing you continued success! Yuri
Thanks for your review of "Dark Momentum". I get a lot of insight from your thoughtful feedback. Truly appreciate it. I've been listening to your work while writing this. You've lullabyed me into a very pleasant and soothing spell. Have a great day and thanks again. Yuri
Thanks for your review of "Fickle Love". You liked it and wrote "could have been twice the length". I agree and might work on a longer version. It was written for a sync license opportunity that requested around 2 minutes. They can be very specific sometimes. I've been enjoying listening to your work while writing this. Best of luck to you! Yuri
I wanted to break in here and thank Ionut Mirel Udrea for believing in me and my brother at BanzaiWag. Our music comes straight from our soul, supported by wonderful artists like you. Please forgive me for not telling you that years ago! robert malin
Thank you Delta, for 5 Stars on 900 Miles. Also...thank you so much for your wonderful production story and participating with my 24 friends in Production 1-10! God bless your musical story!!
Fred, Thanks for your review of "Dark Momentum" yesterday. Glad you liked it! Yuri
Thanks for the review of "From Rain Drops to the Sea".
I appreciate you taking the time to listen and provide your perspective.
Be and stay well,
Always a pleasure to listen to your work, Frank. BTW, Thanks for your review of "Clues Unfolding" on February 13th. I truly appreciate it.
Many thanks for your kind review of Caledonia, I'm glad you enjoyed it. It's one of my earliest instrumentals, recorded on a more basic keyboard than my present one. I've also moved from an actual guitar amp to an amp simulator which makes recording both electric and acoustic guitar so much more efficient.
Thanks again for your feedback, I find it invaluable.
Good luck with your projects,
My pleasure, Bob. Went through some your work. Solid stuff. Your years of love for music is quite clear. Keep it up!
Yuri, thanks again for the stars. I'm glad you are enjoying the music. - Kevin
Yes, that was me in the call with Barry.... I am so glad to see your successes. We have the same goals, but I have yet to crack the nut.. Hope it happens soon...
Best to you and keep up the great work.
It's a long road, Chet. I had some success in the past with Dean Anderson, alias Hans Bolex on Broadjam, who mentored me to fit some hot music library leads. I'm on my own for a few years now and have trouble getting consistent results. But, I keep trying because it's fun. What I've learned is:
1. The work has to be stellar and you have to meet their criteria exactly (i.e., subject, style, instruments, mood, track length, etc.)
2. You have to hook them within the first 10 seconds of the song or they just move on to the next submission.
3. People succeed in making some kind of living out of this business after 5 to 10 years of submitting hundreds of tracks a year. You have to keep searching for opportunities, learning, writing and submitting, not looking back and waiting for results.
Barry's business model might work well for you and I wish you luck. Just remember that he's fulfilling all kinds of different needs. I think that you should also find music libraries that specifically represent your line of work if there are any. I made the mistake once of giving exclusive rights for dramatic and tense instrumental tracks to a music library that specializes in R&B. Those tracks have been just sitting there. Lesson learned.
PS No, exclusive rights to anyone... period. Unless, they get a nice placement..... I have only signed ONE song to an exclusive deal...and the guy disappeared, totally. Now, what? Ha!
Thanks so much for the review of my song "One Red Rose Interlude". As the title alludes to, this is a segment from a longer song that I have a couple version of on my Broadjam page. Those versions had lyrics and are in a more "Pop-like" genre.
I appreciate you taking the time to listen and provide positive and useful feedback.
I'll check out some of your music soon.
Thanks and be well,
Thanks Yuri for listening and showing appreciation for the music I assemble. Always glad to have more music friends!
Wishing you a speedy recovery from Covid, Roy. Glad to read that you're covered with the vaccine.
Thank you Yuri! Your note made me smile. Thanks for the lift.
Hey Roy, I heard you has the Covid pretty good. I hope you RE FEELING BETTER AND i HOPE ALL IS WELL.
Kate, Thank you for taking the time to review and comment on "Desert Wind". I'm glad that you liked it. Wishing you continued success! Yuri
I didn't like it....I LOVED IT! Mrs. Kate
Thank you Yuri!
Thanks for your review of "Happy Skip". Yes, it was intended for a one minute commercial, although I can easily see it being developed further. I truly appreciate the effort on contributing your insight and support.
You are welcome Yuri and let me know anyway i can help!
Yuri - all I can say is you're a genius and a real "artist" - how inspiring!!! Wow !
Diane, thanks for the review of Daddy-O...maybe I already told you that... Mrs. Kate
You are most welcome kate, and no worries, I find myself getting a little lost on where to comment on the portal, so I think I've repeated myself a few times, but no matter, sure love the folks and the music here on BJ. Have yourself a lovely day!
Diane, Thanks for your review of "Lily on Water". I'm quite flattered that you like it so much, and agree that it could be developed further depending on the purpose. I'll put it on my "To Do" list.
Diane, Thanks for your review of "Forever More". I really appreciate your insight and suggestions for improvement. Love your work, by the way.
Hi Yuri , thanks for your great review of Headin' Out West ! I don't do many instrumentals , so it's especially nice to get a compliment from someone who specialises in them .
Hey Phil. It was a pleasure. I just listened to the first few songs on your site. You're very good at writing, performing, and mixing. Professional. Your voice and style was particularily appropriate in "Trembling". If I was to recommend anything to you, it would be to collaborate with some singers at Broadjam. I think that you'd find that some of their styles would inject a new "life" to some of your works. Just a thought. You're very talented. Keep it up!
Thanks again for your feedback Yuri , maybe one day I will get round to collaborating with someone on here . I've collaborated in the past , with some things working out better than others .
Dave, Thanks for taking the time to review "Tortured Trumpets". Your comments and advice are very helpful.
Thanks, Stephen. Your work inspires me to do better, though. I've been so focused on what I think music supervisors want that I think I'm losing my creative edge. Yours is sharp. I look forward to hearing more.
Thank you for your kind words. I guess this is a mutual admiration society. You have an excellent sense for choice melodies and your work is very well executed.
We should both be proud of what we've done and keep on aspiring to better!
