  1. Scared of Happy - NEW English/Spanish Pop Song

    Wow @ImKeN, what a compliment! Thank you so much Always love hearing your feedback! Thank you!
  2. Hi again! Back with another song, this time with an added twist! Decided to throw some Español into the mix and give it a little extra flare. This song falls a little somewhere between "dance" and "pop" in my opinion. Would love to hear feedback on the vocals, lyrics, overall! Thanks as always Lyrics - “Scared of Happy”: They say the good die young, you living every second like it's your last one. Did you forget how to feel alive? Ay-ay And I could fly on jet planes, living all lavish sipping on champagne, but it ain't ever gonna be the same, without ya. Oh god I miss you too, I’m coming after you. Imma need you to believe me, believe it's true. Imma gonna sweep you off your feet, and take you where you wanna be. Baby won’t you tell me why you’re scared, scared of happy. Tell me tell me why, Tell me, tell me why you’re scared of happy. Scared of happy… Tell me tell me why, Tell me, tell me why you’re scared of happy. Ay, baby sabes que puedes llorar en mi hombro. Y que no tienes que escapar tus miedos. Vivimos la vida loca, para para, lo necesitas. Te digo que tu eres todo mi mundo, y que no puedo vivir sin ti. I promise you don’t need to be, scared of happy, happy. Let me be your lifeline, let me be the one that call at night. If theres an ocean between us, Imma be your Christopher Columbus Oh god I miss you too, I’m coming after you. Imma need you to believe me, believe it's true. Imma gonna sweep you off your feet, and take you where you wanna be. Baby won’t you tell me why you’re scared, scared of happy. Tell me tell me why, Tell me, tell me why you’re scared of happy. Scared of happy… Tell me tell me why, Tell me, tell me why you’re scared of happy. ¿Me diría si necesitas ayuda? Te prometo que va estar... mejor, mejor, mejor, mej-or Te digo que tu eres mi mundo, y que no lo puedo vivir en sintigo. I promise you don’t need to be, scared of happy, happy. Oh god I miss you too, I’m coming after you. Imma need you to believe me, believe it's true. Imma gonna sweep you off your feet, and take you where you wanna be. Baby won’t you tell me why you’re scared, scared of happy.
  3. Words Away

    This isn't my type of music but this sounds really good! Super professional and I could totally hear this playing on the radio (whatever rock channel my dad listens too :P), your voice matches this genre so well! Nice work man!
  4. Mr. Fox FULL DEMO

    Good work! I like the way the instrumental starts, its a bit mysterious and a good fit. I agree with Sreyashi, the vocals are improving; I would try and play around with the EQ because I personally thought they sounded a bit "hissy", as in the higher frequencies were standing out and making it seem a bit unbalanced, but it could just be because I'm listening with earbuds haha. For the chorus, I think you would benefit from layered vocals and harmonies if you can do that... they always seem to take a song to that next level Looking forward to whats next!
  5. Love To Hear Your Input - When You Come Home

    My response isn't going to be nearly as long as those before me but I did have a couple thoughts! First, I think that you did a really nice job of putting emotion into your vocals and matching the tone of the song (and the lyrics, which I agree should be posted ). Something that I did want to note, I would try and make the instrumental in the chorus "fuller." I kept anticipating a pick-up when it got to that part and it never came. You could also try layering your vocals there instead, I just felt like it needed more depth because it didn't differentiate itself from the rest of the song. Overall, great work, keep doing you!
  6. I'll be with you - Mix ok?

    I get super 80's vibes... And I LOVE it haha!!! Well done! The mixing is pretty good, I think its pretty hard to achieve the "professional sound" without all the proper equipment and stuff so I think this is pretty damn close. Keep it up!
  7. Notorious - What do you think?

    Hey @GraffitiByNumbers! Thanks for the input I actually think it might just be confusing by the way I wrote it... so the "every guy who lays eyes on her says the same damn thing" is referring to the "she's the only fish in the sea for me" part that comes before it but yes, I very much see where you're coming from haha!
  8. Notorious - What do you think?

    @Dallon426 Thanks so much man, that means a lot! I'll definitely keep it up @ImKeN Haha, thank you! Yes, I made it with my headphones that have good bass and realized the lack of bass on the macbook speakers after the fact but I'll try and fix that! @snabbu Thanks for the kind words
  9. PLEASE CLOSE THIS THREAD. Thank you.

    Your feedback is always so appreciated when you write on my posts so I'm excited to finally return the favor! The mastered version is 10x better, and I think you did a really awesome job of blending the sounds together... except the guitar seems a little too above the mix if you ever intend for the song to have vocals (imho, could just be a matter of preference). However, as a standalone song its really really incredible!!
  10. Hello again, Out with another song, different than the others as usual Still unsure about how I feel about this song... sometimes I listen to it and vibe and other times its just "meh" haha. Would love to hear your thoughts on what worked and what didn't! Lyrics are below as well Lyrics: Its a small town feeling, something that those city kids sure been missing. You hear the talk, you seen her walk, she gets the whole place looking. There’s bout a billion other fish in the sea, but something tells me she’s the one for me. But every guy who lays eyes on her, says the same damn thing. She's so notorious, by the way she flip her hair. Notorious, for making everybody stare. Notorious, she’s just the girl next door, but she’ll make you think you’re living in a barbie world. Yeah, you the town’s most wanted, Oh go ahead and flaunt it. Yeah, every guy already know it, you’re notorious, just show it. She’s a force of nature, play it cool she gon’ stun ya like a laser. A Class A distraction, trust me when I say she’s only looking for reaction. Oh yeah, don’t waste your goods moves, save it for someone who will notice you. If somebody hasn’t told you, imma fill you in. She's so notorious, by the way she flip her hair. Notorious, for making everybody stare. Notorious, she’s just the girl next door, but she’ll make you think you’re living in a barbie world. Yeah, you’re the town’s most wanted, Oh go ahead and flaunt it. Yeah, every guy already know it, you’re notorious, go ahead and show it. N-O-T-O-R-I-O-U-S, you’re notorious so notorious Aim steady, close in on who’s next, you’re notorious so notorious I want, to be free, cut the shackles take your chains off me (come on). Lets face, reality, its better anyway. She's so notorious (oh yeah), for the way she flip her hair. Notorious (oh yeah), for making everybody stare. Notorious, she’s just the girl next door, but she’ll make you think you’re living in a barbie’s world. Yeah, you the town’s most wanted, Oh go ahead and flaunt it (flaunt it for me). Yeah, every guy already know it, she notorious, go ahead and show it.
  11. Say it

    Wow, such a controlled and soothing voice you've got! Really enjoyed this I think the vocals sound a little bit like theyre sitting ON the track instead on IN the track so it has a more "live acoustic" sound but honestly it works really well for this song if that's what you're going for!
  12. Girl Across the Bar - New pop song :)

  13. Girl Across the Bar - New pop song :)

    Thanks for the great tips! I'll definitely consider those (and you're right about the diction haha... I know the lyrics so its easy for ME to follow along but might be too fast and unclear for others, so I'll keep that in mind )
  14. Hello all! I'm back again with a new pop song called "Girl Across the Bar". Tried some news things out as usual, but I love the bass-iness of the instrumental and hope that the lyrics I wrote fit well Thanks for listening, and tell me your thoughts! Edit: I worked with someone on this song and I was just responsible for the lyrics and vocals so I would particularly like critique on those sections since those are the ones I have control over at the moment Lyrics: You sitting real pretty over there, sipping on a drink while you’re playing with your hair oh-oh, baby You got my friends laughing at me, asking me ayyo whats it gonna be oh-oh. Oh am I outta my mind, because you’re something divine, and it kills me. I think I’m gonna make my move, because I wanna get with you, oh baby. Hey you, to the girl across the bar, you’re real cute, and I’d like to meet ya. I know I ain’t some superstar but we can still have fun, I know how to treat ya right. Bartender, get her what she like, swear I’m gonna treat you like a queen tonight. Feeling like I’ve known you for a long time, but baby it ain’t even been for a whole night. Hey you, to the girl across the bar, I’m so glad that I got to meet ya. Lets take a ride in a stolen car, drivin fast through the city with your head on my shoulder. Maybe its just for tonight, so baby here’s my number call me if you’d like. It don’t matter where we are, you’ll always be my girl across the bar. Let me ask you one thing, when you came for the night did you know you’d be looking for love? Maybe? Oh-oh, tryna start something new, hoping that somebody would fall for you, tonight… Oh when I walked in the room, tell me ya felt something too, like its magic. Feel like I’m running out of time, if I wanna make you mine, oh baby. Hey you, to the girl across the bar, you’re real cute, and I’d like to meet ya. I know I ain’t some superstar but we can still have fun, I know how to treat ya right. Bartender, get her what she like, swear I’m gonna treat you like a queen tonight. Feeling like I’ve known you for a long time, but baby it ain’t even been for a whole night. Hey you, to the girl across the bar, I’m so glad that I got to meet ya. Lets take a ride in a stolen car, drivin fast through the city with your head on my shoulder. Maybe its just for tonight, so baby here’s my number call me if you’d like. It don’t matter where we are, you’ll always be my girl across the bar. Take a chance cause you’ll never ever know if you don’t, This world is better when you’re not on your own. Nobody ever knows where anything goes, Got your eyes on me we don’t need to take it slow, slow, slow. Come on baby, living like its the last night of our lives. Like the things we do don’t matter till the sun rise. They say YOLO, you only live one life, Imma make the most of it imma take you in my arms tonight.

  15. Get Me Down

    Wow, great job! I've heard some of your previous songs and I feel the most emotion in this one, which I love! The vocals also sound fuller, in my opinion, compared to your previous tracks (which was one of my critiques last time so good job!). Keep it up, I love watching people improve the way you are
