Positive Comments: I love this piece. Very relaxed feel to this song. Great instrumental choices and the bass on this is spot on. Nice mix and production. All around great song.

Constructive Comments: Since this song is rather short, I’m assuming this is for ad submissions. I would love to hear what you could do with as a full length piece.

Positive Comments: I really really like this song. It’s so different, and so fun in an understated way. It’s a Hero Song and the Hero is a man on a mission. As soon as he gets the girl (or maybe even before), he’s out to celebrate happiness and all the good vibes in life, not letting the sadness defeat him as he soars through the night sky, no cape needed. Walking barefoot on hot coals, he seeks his true love on the other side…what a guy! I like the reference to “The strength God gave me.” Obviously, how could this super-hero continue without that? Even though the production is simple, the recording is clear and I understood every word.

Constructive Comments: You have a quiet voice in this song, and as I said before, a very understated performing style. I wonder what this song would sound like with a whammy-vocal and beefed-up production? It might spoil it I don’t know. But your idea and your lyric writing are fresh and fun, and I wish you every success. Drop me one of your super-hero stickers next time you fly over Florida.Mrs. Kate

Beyond This Life by Signal 30

Positive Comments: The simple piano lulled me in quickly. Even though there are no lyrics I feel like there is a hook in the song…a musical hook and I think the musical hook is strong. The tempo is nice and the composition is nice. I would say there is a majestic sound overall. This piece would lend itself to many visual situations and should do fairly well for you. The recording is decent quality, the mix is very good, and the master sounds nice and full. Nice job.

Constructive Comments: I would say that although I do like the piece, I think that the “ah” vocals and the strings have, possibly, too much of a computer driven sound to them. The piano sounds nice and natural to my ears. I think some better sounding vocal and string patches would help this song immensely because it is a very well composed song. Thanks again for sharing and good luck.

Waiting by Richard Walker

Song: Waiting

Reviewer: Kate Carpenter

Positive Comments: Great voice, crystal clear performance of a love song. The instrumentation suits the song well you did a really nice job on this easy-listening track. I think it’s great when the recording and mix are so clear you can understand every word the artist sings. Great job!

Constructive Comments: The chord progression reminds me of an old song: “Do you want to know a secret? Too Rah Loo…Do you promise not to tell…Too rah loo.” It seems to me like you “borrowed” it or sort of duplicated it, which might be a coincidence. Probably not enough to be a copyright infringement but noticeable nevertheless. The only thing I would suggest for this song is a little more creativity and depth in your lyric writing. You are on the right track keep up the good work.

Positive Comments: I could tell from the start that this is a guitar playing that knows what he/she is doing. Wow, powerful performance. Love the composition and the dynamics. Short and sweet. Nice job, whoever you are. You’re probably the kind of person that plays and practices for hours. Congratulations on a job well done.

Constructive Comments: Seems to me the only thing that could stand improvement here is a stellar recording with a fantastic microphone. Otherwise, nothing to add. You have an amazing groove and ought to get a lot of gigs with chops like these!Mrs. Kate in Florida

FIRST LIGHT ON THE PRAIRIE (Instrumental) by Bill Dake

Reviewer: Brenda Craven

Positive Comments: Very beautiful. So much like Pat Metheny. This is so relaxing and calming. What a wonderful guitar lead and your background instrumentation compliments it so beautifully. Wow, this is just amazing. This is exactly the music I listen to through my earbuds when I go to sleep. This is a dynamic composition that needs to be in mainstream jazz. Outstanding job.

Constructive Comments: The only critique I would have would be to bring your drums in a little stronger at 3:00 in. It is so far in the background that it’s difficult to hear it. Bring up the volume on your drums just enough so you can hear them more and so that they don’t overpower the rest of your beautiful instrumentation and this song is on it’s way. Bravo!
