Constructive Comments: I was looking for more of a change-up in the song somewhere. But it’s great as it stands.

Reviewer: Nigel Barrett

Positive Comments: Lots of energy but lacking real punch. Love the synth programming. Great pulsating pad chords at various points which I am jealous of!

Constructive Comments: The drums need to have a greater presence for my money. Can’t decipher whether the bass is real or keys. Would love also to hear a major change in there somewhere be it a key change of major change of instrumentation to keep me glued.

Something Inside Of Me by Steve Dafoe – Songwriter

Broadjam Artist: Steve Dafoe – Songwriter
Song: Something Inside Of Me

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Great intro that calls both Tom Petty’s Free Fallin’ and Allmans’ Melissa to mind–then you bring vocals in right on cue. Clean and powerful vocals that are given lots of space and hold up to the challenge! Incredibly pleasing vocal timbre and a very convincing emotional performance. This kinda song could help a lot of guys get married if it were playing in the truck. This is one of the best voices out there. Great bridge that really lifts.

Constructive Comments: beautiful eye–heyes I’d recommend not making two syllables out of ‘eyes’ I think it’s awkward and weak. Great as is but I’d love to hear what it’d sound like with a chord walk up on “then I saw you” I think that would kill. “It’s just something…inside of me” is good but not great, when you really want great at that moment.I’m not a hitmaker in Nashville but I’d really like to work on the lyrics/phrasing and chord structure with you to see if I could make this better.It’s freakin’ awesome regardless. Nice work!

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

Reviewer: CAEDMON’S DREAM

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.
