Song: A Life In Question / Soundtrack

Reviewer: Rin Vinson

Positive Comments: Even though there aren’t any lyrics or vocals on this song, it has a clear, pronounced hook. A great one at that. For some reason I visualize a scene in a movie, tv show, and or ad that would be a night time time frame. Possibly raining. The groove the drums and bass are laying down is simple and fat (in a great way). The guiro is a nice touch.The guitar playing and tone are excellent. Once again…very simple but completely effective. The recording, composition, mix, and master are all high grade and professional. Thanks for sharing.

Constructive Comments: Nothing negative to say. I listened three times and I can’t find anything I would change. I would keep my eyes open for a placement that has to do with night time. I enjoyed the track very much and I think it should do well for you.

Positive Comments: Wasn’t expecting the beautiful chords at the beginning. They got my attention. Sounded like an intro to a Deadmau5 tune.

Constructive Comments: I was waiting for this to really take off and get pumping!! But then I’m a freak for tunes like I remember by Deadmau5! Builds nicely and some beautiful moments in there.

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Nice behind the beat vocal phrasing and a classic melody/phrasing here much like “Shake Rattle n’ Roll”.

Constructive Comments: Take the effects off the guitar. Listen to Humber Sumlin or Otis Rush for a classic Chicago vibe–clean and dry with a bit of bite. I’d start with the full rhythm section. The guitar solo isn’t very bluesy–again clean up the tone and go for simple phrasing with statement and repetition leave space in. There are a number of timing issues. This could be a really fun tune–the bones are there. Make it tight, concise, and clean!! All IMO of course.

Song: My Little Girl

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: This opens up sounding very much like Ryan Adams’ “New York, New York”. This sounds better with each listen. Really really strong writing in terms of structure, melody, and lyrics. Very nice vocal performance. I really like the chord lift on the pre chorus–it’s a great setup for the chorus/refrain.

Constructive Comments: Listen closely to Ryan Adams’ “New York, New York” for comparison against a masterpiece. First thing drop the effects on the rhythm guitar and go for nice clean, warm sound, and add or substitute and jangly, strumming acoustic guitar part. I think the bass is too plonk plonk plonk in the verses–it sounds like Boston’s “Long Time”, which was 40 years ago. Having it groove and gently move would add a lot. I’d take most of the slapback off the lead vocal, and put some tube drive and just the tiniest bit of distortion in to give it some grit. There’s a bit too much low mid in the vocal–it accentuates the somewhat nasal tone you have. I really don’t like the solo guitar at all. It’s trying to hard, and putting too much Dickie Betts intensity. And the sound is harsh. Simpler, major pentatonic with a smooth tone would be better.All IMO and all intended to help with the tune. This is really solid writing, playing, and singing!

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.

Positive Comments: Playful and bouncy country thingie, pleasantly acoustic, and acoustically pleasant. Pleasant female voice and pleasant banjo. Did I say pleasant?

Constructive Comments: Maybe just a little shorter, but not, it’s just me, of course, impatiently impatient.

Broadjam Artist: Warren Hein
Song: Cookie Cutter Blonde instrumental

Reviewer: Rin Vinson

Positive Comments: This song is definitely high energy. The composition, recording, mix, and master are all top grade and professional.I hear a heavy late 70’s early 80’s New York influence in the composition. There is a gigantic fan base for this music today and I would think a composition like this would do very well in a TV show, movie, and or ad that might require this type of high energy music for the sound track. Vinyl is a show that comes to mind. The guitar playing is excellent and the tones are not too bright which is usually the pitt-fall that people fall into while trying to pay homage to this genre. Great Job!

Constructive Comments: NO critique here. This is a well done piece of music and great to have in any library. I enjoyed listening to it and I appreciate you sharing it. Pro all the way.
