Hi Teri,
How are things over in Flippin? I drive through there occasionally, when I'm headed to and from my hometown.

I just listened to "Surrounded By A Rainbow"! Your beautiful lyrics and vocals, spoken and sung, really quiet stunning and strong!

All the best to you and your beautiful music!
Peace~

Hi Teri,
I just got done reviewing your song "Imaginary Moment". I actually wrote a long review for it. When I was finished I was shocked to find out it was your song. I have done several reviews of your music so far, and the quality of this recording is so much better then the others I have heard.

I am sure I am not always the person you want to see review your music, I don't grade on a curve and I point out flaws and don't sugar coat things, but that is also why I had to write you a follow up here to you personally. The quality I heard in the latest song was so much better then the previous recordings of yours that I had heard that I was literally shocked it was you. The mix and the balance of the tracks and the volumes were so much improved. I felt like there was so much more effort and thought put into not just the recording and mix, but also the arrangement and composition and lyrics. Whatever you did differently for this song you need to keep doing. The attention to detail made a remarkable difference. I am really happy to hear that from you.

I always tell people on here. The goal should not be to post as many songs as possible. It should be to put your best foot forward with every song you post. A listener may only give you one shot to get their attention, so you have to treat each song like it is your one and only shot to gain a listener. You should go back and compare and contrast the songs or yours I have reviewed and take the time to identify what you did and did not do in comparison with this song so that you have a giant sign post that says, "Hey Teri! This way to making your best stuff!"

While I am here, I noticed your question about "radio quality" recordings. I can answer this for you. You can't do it yourself. Mixing and editting is what I am best at, and I can't do it. It is a process called "Mastering". Only someone who is a true blue, formally educated, no holds barred sound engineer can do it. Where I am from it would probably run you 100 to 200 a song to have it done. Years ago I produced for a friend who was a good songwriter but average musician and sub average singer. I got tired of other peopel making fun of him so I helped him. I was naturally better at mixing and could help him edit himself to make smarter decisions. Truthfully though, I was making it up as I went along, like most people on here. That is how I learned to mix, by trying to make someone not good sound better, and by trying to edit someone who resisted editting himself as if his life depended on it. The point is one of his songs we had mastered by a professional. I can tell you for certain that I have no idea what the guy did to master the song, but I can also know for sure it sounded different. It was subtle and I have no idea what it was, but it was different.

If I were to get a song mastered again in the future, this is what I would do. So if you think you have a song that is radio worthy this is what I recommend you doing. First edit the snot out of it. If there is even one thing in the song you don't like, fix it first. If there is one note, one awkward change, one word in one lyric you're not a fan of fix it, no matter how long it takes to get it right. The second thing is I would not give the masterer a single track to work from. I would give them all the individual tracks. I would pay the money to have them do the final mix and final balancing and volumes and everything. I wouldn't add reverb or EQ work or anything, I would just give them all the raw tracks. But I would also give them a finished track where I had done all that work as well, so that whoever was doing the Mastering knew the sound I was aiming for.

Short of that, all you can do is all any of us can do. Continue to learn and grow and try to put your best foot forward, and produce the best recording you can, so that a lsitener can have the best experience you can possibly give them. The sad truth is you probably can't get a song on the radio no matter how good the song or the recording. Everybody remember's Kanye West going on that rant in his concert and people saying he went nuts. The truth is he was ranting about real things. There are almost no independent radio stations left, they are almost all a part of
a conglomerate of stations owned by one big company. And big music labels pay them to play their songs. The label gets ASCAP fees kicked back to them because their song was played on the radio, but that money is just used to help mitigate some of the costs they spent getting the song played on the radio so much, because they make their real money from selling songs and selling concerts so paying radio to play songs from an album is considered advertising for them. This would be really depressing if not for the fact that astute music listeners don't get their music from radio because they know that game is being played. More music is being enjoyed digitally now, whether on phones or ipods or podcasts etc. So you don't really need your music to be "radio quality" what you need is your music to be of a "good enough" recording quality for digital users to listen to enjoy, to buy, to share with friends, to put on their podcast. It is almost a certainty that you would have to succeed in those venues before you could ever hope to get considered for radio air time. it's just reality. I hope you found this useful and helpful.

Every time i had entered a song in a major song contest. It was selected. But never won. I was then encouraged to re-enter cause new judges are picked and new song writers would be chosen as winners. I was happy enough to see that the songs are being recognized.

This guitar duo from the heart of central Louisiana strut their stuff with a heapin? helpin? of down home music with Louisiana soul. By the third listen, I wasn?t even a tad tired of hearing this album, it?s like a five o?clock shadow that never goes away! I loved every second of this and I say that without an inkling of reservation. . . Okay, can I gush anymore? This music had me comin? back for seconds in a heartbeat. I will bet that it works that way for you too
