  1. Here's a song I have been working on lately. Let me know what you think would make it better. Thanks! Verse 1: Back’s against the wall and you are Nothing but a spectator Can’t drown out that self doubt, now Just relax and settle down, now Why did’ya come? Pre-chorus: They’re watching me, watching you, watch me They’re watching me, watching you, watch me Chorus: Bottle label princess in you Picked apart, in a sundress Verse 2: Building up your little castle As your bottle comes unraveled Walling out the spectators Can’t drown out that self-doubt, now Just relax and settle down, now Why did’ya come? Pre-chorus: They’re watching me, watching you, watch me They’re watching me, watching you, watch me Chorus: Beer bottle label princess in you Picked apart, in a sundress Verse 3: Looking out at all that you aren’t Clutching at your only comfort Nothing but a spectator Watching all the spectators Can’t drown out that self-doubt, now Just relax and settle down, now Why did’ya come? Version 1 https://soundcloud.com/josephinethehorse/princess Edited version:
  2. Hello guys, here is my latest cover from youtube.. hope you guys like the video.. click like, comment, and subscribe for more cover video
  3. Hey! My name is Michelle...I am looking for someone to write music to my lyrics that I have already written! If youre interested let me know Here's my soundcloud to get an idea of what I am looking for :
  4. One of my all time favourite songwriting collaborations is that of Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook - the founding members of UK band Squeeze. All the Squeeze hits were co-written by the pair - Chris writing the lyrics first and then Glenn composing the music. Chris has compared the moment he first hears Glenn's compositions as like opening his Christmas presents. I met Glenn Tilbrook last year and shook his hand which was a dream come true for me I'd be interested to know about other Songstuff members' all time favourites........and have you ever met them?
  5. Seeking mixing feedback, thank you!
  6. I made music using the crying laughing emoji! 😂 This is my first attempt at creating a MIDI drawing that actually sounds good. It ended up being an epic orchestral piece with jazzy chords! What do you think? 👌🏼💯🔥
  7. I have a few songs I'd like to test out with you and get some objective feedback. I'm my own worst critic, and it's hard for me to decide what's worth working on. I don't claim to be a musician, vocalist, producer, etc...I just like to write simple songs. Here's my first post. Thanks for listening! If You Go last winter i couldn't feel how cold i was i felt so sure that nothing could tear us apart it took all this time to realize your pain inside your eyes they look so lonely tonight i hope that you don't go cuz if you ever go away yea the hole that's left to hold i can't hardly carry the weight, yea we don't know how things might go if you go if you go would it be better if you took all of your things and left would it be better if i said i'm sorry for the things i said i tried to write a song and right what was wrong but it went on and on and on if you go now all I have will be gone
  8. Hi there everyone I'm a 21 year old singer songwriter from the UK, here to share, talk about and lsiten to music (:
  9. Hi this is my song 'I'm a crime to commit' Just want everyone to be honest as possible, is it good, bad or ugly. I've changed the lyrics slightly now they are: (Verse) Beautiful bitch, has got my back up against the wall, I'm a crime to commit, but it looks like you done them all. (Pre Chorus) Se--------------e me, see me walking away, then you're love--------ly, makes me wanna stay. (Chorus) Mo---------------------re, more, more, than I bargained for. Mo---------------------re, more, more, than I bargained for. (Verse) She got pi-er-cings, in all the right places, infectious lips, and that way she fakes it. (Pre Chorus) Lo--------------------------ve me, like its the only way, In--------------fect me, with your kiss. (Chorus) Mo---------------------re, more, more than you bargained for, Mo--------------------re, more than you bargained for. (verse) Dan-cing on the tables, she hypnotises me, Long red hair, right down to her knees. (Pre Chorus) Teach me, al the things you know, Infect me, love me until you go. (Chorus) Verse1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFdXhmeUtmI&feature=youtu.be
  10. Hi I'm not going to tell anyone what this was written about for personal reasons, and for the critic to make a judgement based in the song without any pre discussed meaning. This is Train: (Verse 1) So it is what it is, he's leaving this life on the train that won't return, But he's leaving this life, so that he can learn, What's on the other side. He's packing his case, now he's down the road, Passed by the field, he could feel the cold, Not the way he wanted to go, but now the tickets sold. (Chorus) It's loosened by the wind and rain, Cracked foundations of life, Are driving you insane, So sad you had to go, A better life, only you could know. It's beating down hard on memory lane, Wrapped life in a bag, and away he goes again, goodbye my friend, thought you'd last until they end. (Verse 2) So times are hard, and he's weakened by having a hole heart, but why did he have to part, So much more to life he could bring. Times a healer, I've said it before and I'll say it again, you've gotta dust yourself off, and never give in, to late for you my friend. (Chorus) So it is what it is, a year has passed, the train leaves again, will it ever come back, until next year, they leave that thought behind, One last glanse at the train that won't return. (Chorus) Thanks in advance!
  11. Hi, This is the kind of thing I do: https://soundcloud.com/aleksei-chapman/sets/pop-ideas These are some chart pop ideas for melodies that need homes. Think Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Icona Pop, Max Martin, Dr Luke, Charli XCX, Natalia Kills. I want to write some hits, basically, and I know that I'm only really good for the melody (and, I guess, the chords). I don't consider myself anything more than average in terms of my pop lyric writing and production skills, so I need to hear from lyricists (of which I understand there a few on this forum!) and producers (to make the tracks banging, shit hot, and awesome - not middling, dull and cheesy like my demos!). I also concede that my voice is not right for the material (I'm male, for one thing) - so finding a good singer for demos would be good but that's getting ahead of ourselves. Edit: I especially need to hear from lyricists - I've heard from many talented people, most of whom are producers... but lyricists are in such short supply. If you are a lyricist, hit me up! And if you know someone who is, let them know! Thanks. Hopefully, despite the crude demos, you can feel the strength of the tunes. About me: I am established, in the sense that I'm experienced, good at music, not an idiot, not a timewaster, genuinely interested in getting stuff done. 30 years old, with a resume of variety. I am not going to give a spiel about my successful life full of name drops and spin. Everyone can do that (everyone does!). I'll just let the melodies do the talking - if you like them, send me an email with a SoundCloud link or similar - it can't hurt... Thanks Aleksei.Chapman@gmail.com

  14. Hey All, I've just started writing an April Audio Blog and have just published the first article: "5 Reason to Record Your Song Today". I hope to continue writing articles on various aspects of song-writing, music, recording etc. What sort of topics do you feel would encourage you as you seek to grow and develop as a song-writer? Are you interested in music tech, recording equipment, songwriting techniques, music promotion etc? Any feedback is much appreciated. You can find it here: https://www.aprilaudio.com/5-reasons-to-...ong-today/ Or on the Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/aprilaudiomusic/
  15. Hi folks Here's a new song that I wrote and recorded. Nits and crits welcome. I'm Not the Bad Guy Written and performed by Staypress V1 I'm sick of saying sorry for things I did not do I'm tired of building bridges so I can get to you V2 I feel like I've been branded a monster among men I think I'll build a time machine and put it right again. Ch I'll admit your jealousy didn't bring out the best in me But I'm not the bad guy i don't deny I lost my cool, being made to feel a fool But I'm not the bad guy V3 I'm tired of feeling guilty for things I should have done I'm sick of being sorry for fights I never won Ch Middle bit I'd be the first to admit I was wrong If you'd allow me to talk that long The thought of you was heavenly, reality was hell Who's the guilty party? You know damn well Ch to end

    I love classic music very much,so I keep lots of music files in my iPad,they are classic and unique,hard to find in the internet.But now my iPad has not enough RAM to storage them,and if I keep them into iCloud or something else like that,I am afraid of lost them.Is there a tool or a platform has a large storage and also can protect my files reliable?it would be better with the function can recover the lost files.Many of my friends use App to Store Passwords to be their storage,maybe I will try this if there is no other advice

  18. Thanks for checking out my cover! Drop me a like on youtube if you enjoyed it! I'll be pumping out a lot more. Stay tuned =) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZ7-2zypoCg
  19. "Hey, can you come play my party for free beer?!" "If you come play guitar for me for $50 this time there will be more gigs to follow!" "Do you have some unlicensed or royalty free music I can use for my video?" "I can pay you in (insert social media platform) more followers if you do this for me." Knowing one's value or worth is the best advice I could ever give anybody wanting to jump in this crazy music industry...OK, the end!! Whew, thank goodness you don't have to read anymore! Seems so simple, right? Monetarily speaking, knowing your worth can be an incredible advantage to your career, or not knowing what your "product's" value is can be a horrible disservice to you and your fellow colleagues. This is what I mean. What we do in the music industry whether it be a song writer, jingle composer, player, artist, manager, booking agent, etc. is entirely different than any corporate structure set in any other genre of business. There is no infrastructure to evaluate how much you should be making on a global scale. There isn't a chart on the internet to tell you how much you should be making. That certainly would make it a lot easier. From what I've learned, culture and the city you live in seem to set a standard. Granted I can only speak as an American understanding the evaluation process in music. Los Angles, New York, and Nashville are what I call the big 3. From there I would say the next tier cities could be an Austin, Texas or a New Orleans, Louisiana for example. But the big three usually set the trends in the largest commercialized music markets (Pop, Rock, and Country). They also have more opportunities in all areas of music as well. How much should I charge for my services? It all depends on your culture, city, and what will you gain out of it. In Nashville, a guitar player hired to play some songs have a pretty standard base rate of a local show getting paid $150 and if there is travel involved no less than $200. But I've excepted gigs for a lot less. Even $50! In corporate business suit and tie world they would ridicule you for taking a 75% cut. I don't blame them. Let that percentage sink in. I didn't know what I was doing was undermining a system that would devalue and under appreciate a player that would be well deserved of a base pay of $150. Integrity in the market place is a concept that , in monetary terms, people will know what to expect. Consistency if you will and it even sets a bar predicated to a system that can establish tiers. For example, do those local shows for $150 and when you have the street credit eventually you can make the jump up to $200, then $225, and then so on, and so on!!! Your culture may have something set in place. Maybe? Maybe not? Isn't it funny? Do you ever wonder if somebody slapped a sign on your back that says "will work for free" instead of "kick me!" Know your worth. Set a standard. Educate yourself from other musicians/writers/engineers/blah/blah/ bah. Let those that have walked that path mentor you. Help your community by establishing that your vocation as a creative is important to be worth given money. I had a coffee with a friend when I first started traveling to Nashville. I expressed that I didn't know my value or even when should I take a gig. I still use this rule to this day and I absolutely love it, and I think it applies here. After he mentioned base rates in Nashville he ended the subject by saying, "Two out of three ain't bad." 1. Is the money good? 2. Do you like the music? 3. Are they good people or are they fun to hang out with? "If you can say yes to at least two of those...two out of three ain't bad."
  20. Hi, my name is Mike. I was born and raised in New Jersey and I've always enjoyed song writing. Recently I've been writing country music songs and then I wrote my first rap song back in 2016 dedicated and inspired by my son who had some rough experiences in the early stages of his life. I consider myself to be a true story lyric writer so I base all my lyrics off my experiences or the others around me. I can't begin to say how thrilled I am to be able to have my songs produced.

  23. Hi! This is a quick remix I made of one of my favourite verses by Childish Gambino. Thanks for having a look
  24. Hey everyone! I posted for my first time on here a week or so ago and wrote and recorded another song in between that time and now. I am just trying to find "my voice" or the genre where I can really shine as an artist and would appreciate feedback on this most recent song. (I know the mixing may not be 100%, I'm making all of this out of my college dorm room ) Lyrics below... My hands are tired from healing the pain, so far away but I’m still feeling the same. Its crazy how your words catch fire, its like you rule an empire. You got me questioning what happened to the love, to our one great nation under God. Try to forget the hate when I sing this song. We can walk down this road, but we can’t do this alone. We gotta learn from our past and move on… To the better days Come together, arm in arm, staying strong through the eye of the storm To the better days Spread a smile, walk the extra mile, on the road to the better days. I wanna feel the rush, I wanna feel free, bask in the light of the American Dream And if you’re hanging on by a wire, hang on and climb higher You got me questioning what happened to this place, to a time of happiness and grace. Try to forget the hate when I sing this song. We can walk down this road, but we can’t do this alone. We gotta learn from our past and move on… To the better days Come together, arm in arm, staying strong through the eye of the storm To the better days Spread a smile, walk the extra mile, on the road to the better days. We won’t go quiet into the night. We just keep moving moving moving moving onnnnnnn…. To the better days Come together, arm in arm, staying strong through the eye of the storm To the better days Spread a smile, walk the extra mile, on the road to the better days.
