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.

Song: Double Wide

Reviewer: Rin Vinson

Positive Comments: Wow…Epic piece here. Excellent job all the way around. In a word, I would say muscular. All instrumentation was composed appropriately and everything compliments one another seamlessly. The horns and the percussion section push hard while the strings create an anticipation of something large on its way. I visualize a scene in a tv show or movie where people, animals, cars etc…are running away from something large and menacing. The composition, recording, mix, and master are all 100% professionally done. Thanks for sharing.

Constructive Comments: Nothing negative to say here. The piece should do well. I really enjoy quality compositions and recordings and this delivers on all fronts. Thanks for sharing and good luck with it.

A Whiskey In The Morning / Rock by Uncle Spider & The Electric Dirt Clods

Song: A Whiskey In The Morning / Rock

Reviewer: Antho

Positive Comments: Very cool sounding guitar idea – ripe for a lyricist/singer to run with. The melodies lend themselves to a great song in the making

Constructive Comments: I’d like to hear the part up until 0:32 played on a nylon string acoustic, and the rest of the song on a guitar with a little bit of midrange drive, like through a Vox.

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.

Positive Comments: i like the combination of instruments. the voice sounds nice with the tone used. great start and come in. nice job on that.

Constructive Comments: I think a better mix would suit this. you have some good horses here, worth a little more feed. not that it will do well as it is. the voice is close enough to pass, but Melo-dyne used at about 75% would make this smash in my opinion.Am I ever satisfied? No. No. No. It’s what music teacher do, it’s what my two piano teacher Aunts did to me. They refused to give you a perfect score. I hated them for it then, but now I realize that they loved me so much they wanted me to be perfect–for real. Straight Ahead Brother! catnip pat

Reviewer: Rin Vinson

Positive Comments: This tune builds so well! Electric piano intro grabbed me right away. The HH and congas with a ton of verb got the groove chugging, and then some nice bass playing gave some support. Extremely cool, moody piece of music here. Originality scores are high on this piece. Visually I could see this piece doing well in many areas. The recording is organic and sounds nice and real. The mix is perfect and the master sounds like a professional job. I really enjoyed the song. Thanks for sharing.

Constructive Comments: The only and I mean ONLY thing I would say about this song to critique it is that the strings at the end might not need to be there. Other than that, I loved it and I would like to hear more. Very enjoyable. The groove is happening.
