Broadjam Artist: Randal Dunkle
Song: The Salvation Song (Roberts/Dunkle)

Reviewer: Kate Carpenter

Positive Comments: Nice Rock intro. The song is about Christian salvation and spiritual growth. It’s got some good information/instruction in it. Good discipleship encouragement. Hopefully it will inspire people to invite Jesus to come in and begin growing in Him. The instrumental section came out really nice.

Constructive Comments: Step One. I kept expecting Step Two? Step 3? You mentioned them but no number. Anyway, it just seemed like that is where you might be headed lyrically…and you weren’t. The song has good information, but it’s kind of cut and dried. Like putting the 4 Spiritual Laws succinctly into a song. If that is what you were trying to do, you succeeded. If this is a Randal Dunkle song, vocals are greatly improved!

Sepias Waltz by Floyd Kelly

Song: Sepias Waltz

Reviewer: Kate Carpenter

Positive Comments: This piece is pleasant to listen to. It comes across as an easy-listening synthesizer-based piece. Some really nice sounding samples in here. Good background music.

Constructive Comments: I could not detect a recognizable hook in this song. There were a few notes that sounded misplaced to me. I am not an expert in this genre, so take what I say with a grain of salt (whatever that means.)

Song: What You Do

Reviewer: Randal Dunkle

Positive Comments: Great lead vocals, really like the sound of the drums and I like the lyrics as well – sounds a little like Zepplin.

Constructive Comments: I like the song, has a very clean and classic Rock & Roll Sound – I think the song needs a good hook, like My Little Dixie Queen which I would insert right after the bridge that ends with Just like I dreamed – best wishes!

Reviewer: Randal Dunkle

Positive Comments: Very cool introduction, I like the sound of the piano and the cool keyboard sounds. I also like the bass guitar and the overall blend of the other sounds as well.

Constructive Comments: I like the song however, I think it would sound much better if the bass guitar was turned up and maybe at a lower frequency – best wishes!

My only suggestion would be to kick up the harmonies throughout. I heard a but here and there and I loved it. I some added harmony could kick this song up to the next level. Well done!

Reviewer: Dana and Brad

Positive Comments: The production quality on this song is excellent. The instrumentation is super catchy and very well done. I also really like how nicely this song builds without being too overwhelming. It nicely keeps me engaged without any portion of the song being too intense. The arrangement is perfect for advertisement purposes or commercials.

Constructive Comments: I really don’t have much in the way of constructive criticism for this song. Not only are the instrumentals and arrangement spot on but the song is super versatile. It invokes a wide array of emotions and would ft very nicely in everything from your basic TV commercial to a comedy, or even a movie trailer. Lovely instrumental piece!
