Song: Beyond This Life

Reviewer: Rin Vinson

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.

Reviewer: CAEDMON’S DREAM

Positive Comments: * unique lead vocals* song has memorable chorus/hook* lyrics have a strong universal message * simple instrumentation & nice chord changes* could be a movie “message” piece

Constructive Comments: + production is clear but mono track stereo sound-field can help each instrument stand out+ doubled vocals loses clarity in lyric at times+ chorus vocal is strong: but a unique instrumental part or lead-line to go along with chorus would help it stand apart from rest of the song

Old Man by Marc S. Pate

Broadjam Artist: Marc S. Pate
Song: Old Man

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Of course the first moments call Cowgirl in the Sand to mind…and you turn it around by using an “Old Man” hook. Really good sound and mood are created in the first few bars. The voice is commanding and really pleasing. I like the upward changes in the chorus. This has a very strong late 70’s feel. Super tasty guitar break. This calls to mind Neil Young of course but also Seals & Crofts, Jesse Winchester, Steven Stills, Rodriguez, and Bob Welch. And anyone who likes those will love this. Super work here!

Constructive Comments: Like what? lol

Positive Comments: * Keyboards and vocals stand out* String lines are clear and lush* A “Disney” musical feel* Nice performance and production!

Constructive Comments: + Adding one more musical element in the bridge (ex. bass, cymbal rolls, or other) could help it stand out+ non-diatonic chord change in piano intro threw me off (not really there in verse or chorus is it?)+ key modulation could be effective for last chorus melody line stays constant and can get repetitive+ very nice tempo change for ending+ I like this piece alot, I hope my comments don’t sound negative.

Song: A better world (stand by me)

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Great driving beat with an urgent tambourine and chord progression that gives a tragic mood. I can’t quite understand the lyrics but the melody and phrasing work so well I know the lyrics are good. This sounds like Billy Corgan / Smashing Pumpkins if he were a better songwriters.

Constructive Comments: There’s so much chorus on the guitar it makes the sound very thin. The guitar break at 1:57 totally doesn’t fit the song at first but then what you end up with *does* give a strong bridge. The finish of the tune doesn’t match the vibe you’ve created. I think there are a number of things to fix and glue together better but there is a great song here and some really cool things going on. Overall I think the sound is too trebly and the vocal diction needs to be clearer. Some sweet harmony vocals would be a great addition.

Zero Gravity by Mitch Siegal

Broadjam Artist: Mitch Siegal
Song: Zero Gravity

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Just listened to this tune by Mitch the other day and already gave it five stars!! Great melancholy mood from the get go with the minor 7 > dom9 almost Bossa Nova chord changes. Vocals have a bit of a Sting vibe. The first lifting chords in the chorus are a super change up. LOVE the first guitar break–that’s so tasty I can’t stand it–the solo, tone, changes and mood. Those backup vocals aren’t obvious on the first listen, and damn they are cool. Outstanding work Mitch!

Constructive Comments: I’d like to year your voice in a last raspy, strained take. We know you can sing so well so this is just a question of desired approach. The Sting reference kinda says it–I don’t like Sting (lol). I’d like to hear you do this with a smoother more detached vocal–it would be a slight change, what you have is really really good as is. What about doing the chords on a nylon string for a smooth slinky feel. Check out Luisa Maita for an example (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlwcTs35Z1k). And listen to some of her studio work–she and band are fantastic, and this song has just the vibe that I can hear yours with: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5E9doyHXWs Your song could have this deep melancholy and mystery.
