  1. I agree with Teresa on the arrangement. This is an emotional, solemn subject. If one didn't pay attention to the lyrics, it would have sounded like a nice, breezy number. But that's probably not what you want to convey. A piano accompaniment would sound lovely. Even a guitar could work, with a slower tempo, lesser strumming and more forward-sounding vocals. Just some thoughts. But I really like your songs... your choice of chords in your music is a little unusual but very appealing.
  2. Hi CT, what kind of music are you into? Any samples that we can listen to?
  3. This is a great, practical post! I found a nice article on guidelines to choose the right vocal coach, since vocals are my interest area, so posting the link here : http://www.kimchandler.com/vocal-coach/choosing-the-right-vocal-teacher/ Many of the fundamentals are similar to what you have stated. Since this is related to your topic, I have kept the post here, in case it helps someone.
  4. It's a nice one. Creates an uplifting environment even when old, happier times are reminisced. It may not sound original enough but the arrangement itself is very smooth and pleasing.
  5. It's very nice, Steve. You know, my interpretation of the window in your poem was our own self - we tend to see everything on the outside, many a time even ourselves. With a little more awareness, the feeling of inclusiveness comes in and we are always home
  6. Hello people, I was going through this website called www.demomysong.com. I guess there are many more such websites; can see one such entity sponsoring songstuff, too. I wanted to know if anyone has tried any of these services and if you have, what kind of results have you gotten. I understand that there are certain variable factors which decide whether one will want to go for such services, like: 1) Is the person interested to try a more commercial route instead of aiming for more niche audiences? 2) Does the person want to outsource those parts of song-making that he/she is not that proficient at, instead of doing everything in-house? 3) Budget (of course) 4) Others If anyone has given this kind of service a try, 1) Did your finished product turn out the way you envisioned it? 2) Did you have any creative control over the process at all, in terms of feedback and reworking the song? 3) Could you actively reach out to your targeted fan base? Apparently they have services for that, too. 4) Overall, was/is it a worthwhile stint? Just questions from a curious Jane J Sreyashi/Sumi
  7. Hello, David. I'd found a song of your's posted somewhere on the forum which I'd listened to but haven't been able to find since... maybe you've taken it down. It was "If I were You". Haven't heard softer sounding songs of your's before and just wanted to say that I liked it a lot :)

     

  8. Yes, could get it from your SC account. It does sound quite promising.. Will hold on to comments till you have a full draft completed.. you may yourself make changes along the way towards your song completion. I do agree on one point with bakerusc. The piano chords during the chorus sound robotic and somewhat affect the song's flow. Maybe you can use keys instead of chords which sound like somd of the notes when you sing "apart".. just an idea.
  9. This is so different from the kind of music I listen to but I'm still very intrigued by your style
  10. Hi Jenn, Would have liked to listen to your piece but for some reason your link provided isn't opening. Could you paste it here again along with the default player option?
  11. It's a nice one, ALO. Looking forward to hearing the rest
  12. I guess the same fundamentals apply anywhere - not just in music. Have talent, know it, hone it, then show it. If these things are in place, crowd funding can be a very powerful tool. People see your worth and support you - just like John said about Songstuff Also, stories of "late-bloomers" aren't totally unknown either, in a world where ultimately everything is a measure of relativity
  13. Hi Alex, I have heard a number of your songs and they all have a sweet, folksy feeling to them. You have a nice tone, too I would like to point out a couple of things which, I believe, can be a value addition to your overall song quality (which is already pretty good!) for this song as well as others 1 - Sometimes, a few parts of your music pieces appear a little rushed. Specifically in this song's case, I find that happening somewhere in the chorus. Of course, you're maintaining the overall rhythm while singing them but the flow doesn't appear smooth. So, you could work on your phrasing in such sections or on the length of the sentences. 2 - You have a nice way of playing with the notes while singing. And as Oswlek has mentioned, your's is a radio-friendly voice. With so much going for you, it would be great if you pay a little more attention to the pitch - which, you may have noticed, falters sometimes. It may not have to be perfect (though I'm my harshest critic, in this category) but it shouldn't waver to the point that some hooked listeners get a little distracted. And the only way to deal with it is by keeping up the practice, with special focus on this aspect Hope you don't take this otherwise. But I say these because I see you with a lot of potential.

  14. Very interesting song... this kind of sound reminds of the work of a certain contemporary singer named Melanie Martinez (maybe you've heard of her?). As usual, your voice is the clincher Maybe it can be made to sound a little sharper against the music (there's a little bit of edge that this song can build up on... not sure whether it's the voice or the musical arrangement or both)? I also feel that a little more punch to the phrasing technique can take this song to a different level.
  15. I like the way the song opens and also find the chorus pretty catchy. Just feel that the chorus can be made to sound a little bigger, especially after the second verse. Also, maybe you can repeat it another time before ending the song (or make it a fadeout). Currently, the ending appears a little bit rushed.
