  1. Seeking a vocalist for a track I'm nearly finished making! Song's key is F and BPM is 147. Choruses and bridge are instrumental so only need two verses from you I'm new to the track producing thing and am by no means professionally experienced haha. I have lyrics already written as well as the keys for all the notes, which are represented through piano keys on the track itself. (may not stay there, just for the vocalist to follow) Reply here if you're interested and contact me on soundcloud! "User 155413641" Track is based on this ad: Thank you!

  3. Hi ya'll, Looks like I'll be guilty in including this topic under the "Shameless promotion" tag of the Musician Lounge but I was excited to share it here anyways, especially when this is where I've grew up as a musician. John has been the biggest mentor! Anyways, just wanted to share with you the Rolling Stone India interview I did for the next month's magazine issue. Here's the online version of it. http://rollingstoneindia.com/mahesh-raghunandan-one-song-at-a-time/ Hope all is well on that side! Cheers, Mahesh

    I wrote this originally because I was inspired by Aaliyah's original Back And Forth track. After I recorded this song it became my literal reality and I called my engagement off. I poured a lot into this song. But what do you think? https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzVzPodfYCG-WDA1MzlDcGN6ck0/view?usp=drive_web

  6. I was recently asked about what success means to me as a songwriter and musician. Explaining what this broad term means took me good thought. But recently, something that happened made things much easier for me to answer this question. Every individual is on the journey of finding some purpose in life. There are good times and bad that each of us wade through. Though we cannot possibly quantify all of it in a sentence (or a hundred), there are certain experiences that embrace the essence of it. I’ve been a singer-songwriter for years now and fortunately, being among the right people and the right situation, I’ve been able to make a living out of this. Not long ago, while unwinding among friends, I was asked to sing a couple of songs of mine that they were familiar with. I was happy to oblige as I‘ve been in the past among the same friends. It was a day with amazing food, new friends & family and the energy, so pure and serene. I savoured every bit of singing my heart out. What happened once I finished is what, I think, reasserted my purpose for making music. There were tears, hugs and kisses that came by me. Then it went among each other, where people expressed love and gratitude with heavy emotions. It was a surreal night. I did NOT just say that to praise myself and what I will say next should hopefully clear that. As a musician, a lot of people tell you — “You’ve got to work on your skills to give the listener your best” which is absolutely true. But as the words repeat in your head and outside of it, some tend to lose direction and ego takes over. The pressure to impress rises. But you know, to people with struggles, life goals and the need to find purpose, the only thing that matters is how something makes them feel. One can look over the mountains and be lost in recording the moment with their phones to show the world of their conquest. Another can be lost in the mountains themselves. The sheer beauty of it. Neither of it is necessarily wrong. Believe me, I’ve done both of ‘em. It doesn’t even have to be a mountain. It can supposedly be the ugliest thing in the world, but many see through it and find beauty and peace, in the darkest of moments. These mountains aren’t the way they are because they want to impress somebody. They are what they are, and remain to be, allowing for memories to be made, love to be shared and worries to be forgotten. That evening, I felt like the mountains. Ego had no room because love & gratitude was strong among everyone in the room. Stories and struggles that I don’t know of became the guests that were served; with words and melody. You see, songs don’t have to be good or bad to make people feel that way. They are just catalysts to heal unspoken words and tangled emotions. Success, to me, was seeing this unravel before my eyes and then staying with it, in silence.
  7. This was long due and I'm so very happy to be sharing this with you guys. Thanks for all the help that you've given me with this song so far. Songstuff sure is a boon!

  11. Im a swedish music producer looking for a female singer who wants to collaborate with me. lm looking for someone who can provide me with acapellas that I can make music to. Get in touch if you are a female singer who are good at melodies and lyrics, and want to make electronic music with me!

Never had such a response to any of my music ever before. So It's all new to me. Thought I'd share it with the family! Hope all are well. Cheers Mahesh
  13. It is not enough for a singer to be able to stay in pitch and remember the lyrics to give an impressive performance to the audience. A true performer is the one who can deliver a song confidently and expressively, whether it be inside a studio or in front of an audience within a live stage set-up. There is very strong proof that the confidence of a singer on stage directly affects the quality of the vocal performance in terms of pitch, expression and power. Building confidence takes time and experience of being on stage. But there maybe a few things that you could try or keep in mind to accelarate that process. The following article deals with those tips and tricks that you could use to build confidence for the stage. http://www.songstuff.com/vocals/article/5_tips_to_improve_confidence_on_stage/ Be sure to share and like the article if you find it useful. If you have any questions, feel free to discuss it on the Songstuff Community Forums.
  14. Though it might not be an absolute necessity for a singer to have a wide vocal range, it does prove to be a huge asset when it comes to giving a powerful and emotional performance. Singers such as Freddie Mercury (Queen), Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) and Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge) are great examples of singers who've shown vocal power and range being used to its maximum potential. Even for an experienced singer, the vocal range cannot be expanded in a day or two. It needs consistent and dedicated vocal routines and the right technique used in combination. The following article presents you with a few exercises and tips to help you expand your range without pushing and straining your voice but through the application of correct and proven techniques. http://www.songstuff.com/vocals/article/3_ways_improve_your_singing_range/ Be sure to share and like the article if you find it useful. If you have any questions, feel free to discuss it on the Songstuff Community Forums.
  15. Vocal warm-ups are an invaluable practice and some would even say, an absolute necessity when it comes down to being a professional or semi-professional singer. I'm sure there is no one here who would want to settle for a mediocre performance or for something that could easily be made better with proper vocal practice. One of the most important realizations I've had as a singer-songwriter and a performing musician is that I'm able to express better and to move the audience better when I'm at ease with the songs I'm singing. While singing a song, if the singer is too worried (and distracted) about whether he or she will hit that high note or whether that vibrato can be easily sustained, then the emotional quality of the performance maybe compromised. The following article deals with a few tips and exercises that maybe used in your warm-up routine to help you deliver a powerful performance! http://www.songstuff.com/vocals/article/vocal_warm_ups/ Be sure to share and like the article if you find it useful.

  17. My friend recommended this place to me, and it seems very cool so far. I'm a semi-amateur musician from Akureyri, Iceland. (I say semi-amateur because while I've made one album, I don't feel like it's up to par with other albums. It's a self esteem thing, probably.) I mostly do weird experimental folk rock something stuff, so there's no guarantee people will like it, but I'm trying to branch into different kinds of songwriting. I sing, play a bit of drums, the ukulele, a little bit of guitar and piano and I sort of am terrible at bass guitar. (I did play bass on my album, along with all the other instruments, but that was mostly because of a lack of resources) Thank you for having me here Love, Socky. (Also, I've been trying to search for the forum rules and haven't found them yet. If anyone could link them to me that'd be great. Thanks.)
  18. Hey everybody! I'm a singer first, a songwriter last haha.. I just recently wrote my first song. So I'm here to get your critique and input on that, maybe I'll be inspired to write some more or maybe I should just stick to singing haha! I used to write poetry but never lyrics, so I'm completely new to that. I don't play any instruments so all I have done are covers, I have some songs up on Smule if anyone wants to have a listen sometime.. And I also need someone talented to put my lyrics to music if they're any good that is. Hoping to find some awesome people to work with! One love!
  19. Hi guys, I'm glad to have found this spot, and please trust me when I tell you how much I need to be here. I'm very shy... at first, but I warm up quickly! You can call me Nat. I love to write and currently co-write songs with a friend that I've worked with since I was 15 years old. I took a leap of faith and left my day gig last month just so I could write and record (there could be hell to pay after making a decision like that, but, I won't worry about it right now). I truly don't know how to describe my music but I'm always game to give it a try. What would mean a lot to me, would be to share some of the songs I'm working on as I develop them and get your honest critiques, if you don't mind. My music is a bit off the beaten path - which could spell trouble for me here or anywhere else...lol. But, again, I won't worry about that. Instead, I prefer to take your constructive criticism as a tool for improving my craft and becoming so much better than I am currently. Having said that, thanks to the creators of this site for providing this forum for people like me and thanks to everyone here who will help me grow as a songwriter (and artist) by giving me honest feedback - good or bad! Best, Nat
  20. Hey, Im a music producer looking for singer-songwriters for my tracks Im up for making any kind of music. Also I'm looking for somebody to cover "All about that bass" to put onto my recreated version Contract me Jake.collison@hotmail.co.uk Many thanks
  21. Hi there! I´m Marruschkka, a singer from Stockholm Sweden. I´ve been singing all my life in many constellations, from choirs as a teenager, the last 30 years in different rock and popbands.

I have my Cubase, microphones, when in collabs I get backgrounds and I record some tunes, lead-song and backup-vocals if needed. Very exciting, there are so many good songwriters/producers out there, I know Don´t hesitate to contact me if you have a good song Take care out there! My real name is Maria Regards
  22. Hi, my name is Frank and I'm from France. I mainly listen to english singers so I try my best to write and sing in english. Even if the title here is pretty much self-explanatory, I won't tell you exactly what this song is about for now. That's a first test to see if native english spokers can relate to the lyric and find their own meaning to it. It like the words to be versatile. I'm after crits for both lyric and melody. I need to fix the lyrics first so I can start working on proper pronunciation and emotional side. This is really a working draft, which means it's a one-take live recording with no effect applied. That was me and my guitar in front of a recorder. Just write whatever comes to your mind while listening to the song. Any comment is welcome !! Words between parenthesis are not supposed to be sung. Hope you'll enjoy, Thank you, -Frank 8<_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ This song is for you SoundCloud link : This song is for you (working draft) [pre-verse] There's so much (3) that I wanna do, (5) but I wish I knew how to.

  23. Here is a very different and interesting collaboration idea. NRK, Norway's public broadcaster, recently released the rules for its Melodi Grand Prix 2015 (http://fido.nrk.no/54f6f3040ee480e2ea9fe2d9ed6f3aa2942beae7bbbb72e10d799ccb1a1b8a8b/pamelding2015.pdf - it's in norwegian, but Google Translator helps a lot). For those who don't know it, it is a big television show where they choose the song that will compete at the Eurovision Song Contest. As happened last year, they will allow songwriters from any nationality to take part. So, anyone can write a song and send to them. The jury then listens to every song and chooses a few for the TV show. If your song is chosen, they have the right to select a new singer to perform it live, probably a norwegian one. I've participated before, but never made it to the live show. Last year, they received around 600 songs and had to choose only 15. So it is pretty tough competition. What is my general idea? I can mostly contribute with lyrics and melody. I'm not a good singer and I don't have much experience playing instruments, so I don't think I can help a lot with the recording itself, if we want to do something at a more "professional" level. Regarding style/themes, I don't have any preferences. In projects like this, I usually find a singer, first, and then write something that fits him/her. In this case, I think we can do anything, there is no "pre-concept" here. Who do I need? - Someone who can create and play music (the "backing track"). It doesn't have to be an experienced producer (but it can, if you are avaliable ), it can be just someone who can play guitar. As long as it fits the song and sounds good, that's perfect. - A singer. If he/she wants, he/she can also contributes with the songwriting, of course. Just remember that this is only about recording a demo song. If the song ends up being selected, NRK may pick a new singer, so there is no long-term compromise here. - Other songwriters? I can write the song by myself, if no one shows up, but I think it would be cool to collaborate with other songwriters, as well. Getting different opinions, building some synergy... There is a lot of room for ideas here. Whens and Hows? We have to create, record and send the song by September 1st. That means we don't have a lot of time, so we should start as soon as possible. All the songwriters will be credited as songwriters (of course ), so the rights will be shared equally. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask. You can also send me a personal message, if you prefer. Looking forward to see who wants to join this!
  24. HI everyone my name is James. Singer and songwriter. Proficient enough on the guitar for song writing but not an aficionado. I also play a little Piano. I started playing guitar around the age of 18 but never really progressed that much. I'm not really a gifted guitar player. I've been singing since I was 3 as far as I can tell. I never really stopped. I use whatever intstrument I can to help write. I use a program called EZ Keys which is a great song writing tool for getting together good chord progressions. I also write on guitar. It seems every time I start writing with piano a melody to a ballad comes out lol. My faster stuff is usually written on guitar. I write my own lyrics. I try to make my lyrics approachable but sometimes I get caught up in too many metaphors. My lyrics are chosen for how well they present the melody and less about the subject matter. Although I do ensure the lyrics have a coherent theme. When I get ideas I record them on a phone or directly to the computer. Sometimes a melody pops in my head without nothing spurring it or chord progressions. Sometimes I have a chord progression that just sits and sits until the right melody finds itself. Usually I write the chord progression first. Followed by writing the hook, then the verse. It's not always like this but that is most common. Sometimes I can write 10 different melodies to a chord progression and not like any of them. When I write multiple melodies but only one gets stuck in my head then I know that's "THE" one. to do. I might go back to the other melodies for ideas for bridges or turn arounds though. I'd like to learn more about production. I'm never satisfied with the quality of the vocal recordings. I use a cheap condenser mic or a Sennheiser E85 into a Dual Pre interface. Alas I don't have enough money for anything good. Even a Rode NTK would be too much for me. But it would be nice to own. Also I started using Fruity loops awhile back and am still getting the hang of it. I'd like to find a pianist to play with to open up my progressions to something that is entertaining and dynamic not static background fills.
