  1. Hello Tom, you got the right voice for kind of songs. I also like the picking parts. Would love to see a catchy line in the lyrics. Something that cuts deep and can be sang along. It is a bit of a protest song to me. With a good studio and some help of other instruments that could be a very good song. I love arranging songs and always have other instruments in my head when writing my own material. Keep writing. Kind rds Frank If interested have a look here: geckomusicproductions.com.au
  2. This is just to introduce myself and to get in touch with other singer songwriter. I may be a bit of an exemption. I am no young and upcoming new talent. Although I started playing guitar when I was 15 years of age and soon after wrote my first own songs and had some gigs, I first focused on my corporate career. After having had enough of that (while still making music with others and sometimes writing songs) I left my well paid expatriate job in Asia and moved to Queensland with my wife. Guess we are sea-changers. We started an own, small businesses and I had more than ever time to create my own music. I recorded 2 CDs with a friend but for the 1st time have recently recorded my 3rd CD in a fully professional study in Cairns. What an experience! (not cheap though). And now I hope I can find ways for my music to find listeners. I am not pop song writer. I love satire, good stories and poetry. Lyrics are important to me. I actually tell stories with the help of music. So I need a listening audience. I wonder who has similar experiences to share.
  3. Just read this now. There have been many dramas and one can only try to imagine what this means to the families concerned.
