  3. Caught in a moment

    New home recording (recorded on a Boss BR600). Idea for a song... Caught in a moment: Outside the rain falls down, inside my thoughts keep spinning round and round. I’ve seen the sun come up in so many places or was it me sliding down? And I was caught in the moment and I thought that the moment would last. You’ve seen it on t.v. the internet so it must be really really really true. You said the brightest thing you’ve ever seen was white, then I added blue. (just a small drop of blue). And we were caught in the moment and we thought that the moment would last. I still feel your heartbeat yeah we set the night on fire. Locked the door behind us and thrown away the key. Yeah we pushed the world outside. There was nothing more we needed, nothing but to be. And we were caught in the moment and we thought that the moment would last. Hummmm hummm see what a small drop of blue can do to your perception. Hummmm hummm see what a small drop of blue can do to your perception. I still feel your heartbeat yeah we set the night on fire.

  4. Producer from Norway

    Hi there! I just joined this forum, to have an easier access to others in the music industry! I'm a music producer and composer from Norway, running my own studio. Looking forward to check out some new music and contribute in music forums! - Sander Amadeus Thoresen :):)
  5. I recently started a Youtube Vlog series called Mahesh Music Diaries to simply express all the things that goes on in my day to day life as a singer songwriter. I thought it'd be a great thing for the humble audience I am fortunate to have back home. But also, it is a great exercise to see yourself from third person and be able to mould yourself into a better and wiser person. And also, it's fun! This is one question that has been asked way too many times in my short career than I can remember. It seems fair that the first reaction to a singer-songwriter with mostly sad music is to think that he’s pretty much a sad sod with nothing else to talk about. But is it really accurate? I wanted to answer this question on my vlog and that’s what I wanted to share with you here today. P.S I use profanity. P.P.S It's meant to be a light-hearted and casual account of my every day life. P.P.P.S If you subscribe, I'll show you India like you've never seen before. Okay, I admit the last one was a sly attempt. Never mind
  6. Here's something of a tribute to John and Songstuff who've helped me in becoming the musician I am today. The other day, I was having those routine meetings with John that's been going on for 6 years ( besides the fact that every one of them feel like so lol ) talking about my career, the upcoming gigs, EP plans and of course the Songstuff stuff as well. And I realised how normal it has become for me that a Scottish man who I've never even met has become a super important part of my every day life. So I thought it'd be something interesting to talk about in a vlog.
  7. Introduction

  8. Are singer-songwriters sad all the time?

  9. My Dear Son

    I wrote this song about 8 years ago but was never happy with a certain lyric. I finally finished it up last week and went to make a quick recording. My sweet 12 year old jumped in to do harmonies last minute and did a great job! Anyways, this is a true story that I wrote when I was really missing my dad who passed from cancer when I was a kid. My hope is that it can bring peace to anyone who is having a hard time. I think anyone can relate, especially if you have lost a loved one. I'd love some feedback. Thank you in advance! You left us when I was 7 years old, Though you had no choice, I just can’t let go Years down the road, and here I am, Wishing for another chance to hear your voice again, Lord knows I’ve tried, but I still struggle to get by, And in my time of doubt, I wonder why, Pre-chorus Then I opened up the good book, and a note fell on the floor, Tears rolled from my eyes, I found what I was looking for, Chorus My dear son, I won’t be here long, The time has come, where I must move on, I’m going home, When you find this note, I’ll be gone, But I want you to know… matter where you go, you’re not alone, If you find yourself wondering if someone loves you, Look up above, I’ll be watching you, Remember… who you are, There’ll be times when you’re lost, and don’t know where to go, Get down on your knees and follow that road, And remember… that I love you son. 2nd Verse Can’t believe what I just read, I never knew what he would have said, Now I know, my fathers’ watching over me, Now I’m here with my own son, Asking myself if I have done, Enough to let him know how I feel, Pre-chorus I’m here watching you dream, And I need you to know, that you’re everything to me, Chorus My Dear son, I may not always be here, The time may come, where I must move on, but for now I’m home I’m here for you, no matter what you do, And I want you to know… matter where you go, you’re not alone, If you find yourself wondering if someone loves you, Look up to me, I’ll be here for you, Remember… who you are, There’ll be times when you’re lost, and don’t know where to go, Get down on your knees and follow that road, And remember… Bridge Life’s hard I know, but we all have room to grow, Without a challenge, how would we learn, Chorus If you find yourself wondering if someone loves you, Look up to me, I’ll be here for you, Remember… who you are, There’ll be times when you’re lost, and don’t know where to go, Get down on your knees and follow that road, Remember… that I love you son.
  10. Hello Songstuff community, My name is Ken. I'm glad to find a community of people passionate about music and songwriting. I have a day job, family, kids, mortgage, etc., but I've always had dreams of writing songs for other people to hear. Only recently, I realized I can write songs other people can hear even though I have a day job, family, kids, mortgage, etc. Whether they are good or not, I'll let you all decide. I am my own worst critic but I am also not very objective. Although I've always followed and admired songwriters, I haven't written many songs myself...call it a 30 year writer's block. Over a couple months this year, I got out of my inertia and tried to write a song a week. I didn't quite get a song a week but I have about 10 songs now and I'd love some feedback. I'll post them gradually, I want to respect the guidelines and offer feedback of my own. The songs are in a rough demo state because I don't have the musical and production talent (and patience) to make them radio quality...so if there's any interest, I'd be interested in collaborating (production, singers) to polish them up. My influences are all over the place and range from late 60s/70s era rock and RnB (Bowie, Beatles, Boston, EW&F); 80s new wave and alternative (Smiths, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran), heavy metal (Scorpions, Van Halen) ; 90s alternative rock (Nirvana, Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Toad the Wet Sprocket); and current modern rock (Foo Fighters, X Ambassadors, Young the Giant, Panic!), indie, pop, etc. I'm not strong in production, but I love to geek out with gear and software. I don't have much of a budget (family, kids, mortgage, etc.) so I try to get as much mileage out of budget gear. Here's a rundown of my gear: * Reaper DAW * Alesis iO4 interface * Tascam TH-02 headphones * MXL 990 condensor * Ibanez SR885 5-string bass * Fender Tele (made in China) * M-Audio Keystation 49 key controller * various free VSTs I'm looking forward to participating here and hearing some great stuff. Thanks for reading. Cheers.
  11. Hi everyone, I'm a pop songwriter. Live in the NYC area now. Have been writing songs on and off for years. Last worked with a few producers in Los Angeles when I used to live there. My goal right now is to find a producer that wants to collab with me. They send me the beats, I create demos with the ones I like (lyrics, melodies, vocals). Ideally I would like to work with someone who is connected in the industry so that we can pitch the songs we make. I'm not looking to work with producers that want to be artists, and therefore will try to keep the songs to themselves, or any shady characters. Contracts will be drawn up for every song we work on. My demos can be heard below. Looking forward to hopefully getting some responses. DEMOS
  12. Under The Moonlight

    Hi everyone, Never got this song critiqued. I wrote it, came up with the melodies and harmonies and laid down the vocals for the demo (I'm not a singer or rapper). Lyrics below. Let me know what you think in general. I'm just starting to look for pop producers to work with so I'm trying to figure out what songs could attract them to want to collab with me. Thanks in advance! Under The Moonlight LYRICS Verse 1 Hey babe I’ve been looking at you Doing your thing the whole night Had to say something before You walked out my life I don’t got no lines I’m just hoping that I’m your type Cause you’re my type Yeh, eh Eh, eh Pre-chorus One dance Is all I need girl To show Show you my world And maybe We’ll fall in love tonight One dance Is all I need girl To show Show you my world And maybe We’ll fall in love tonight Chorus 1 Under the moonlight (5x) Verse 2 Come with me I can see a smile Coming in It’s starting to show All you gotta do’s take my hand And we can go, oh Get lost in the moment While we’re dancing real slow Real slow Oh, oh Oh, oh Pre-chorus Chorus 1 Bridge Ready Hold on me real steady Don’t worry bout a thing Cause I’mma treat you like a lady Like a diamond Girls like you It’s hard to find them You got something special And that’s why you outshine them It feels Like this right here was meant to be This magic between you and me It’s like we’re starting our story Starting our history Chorus 2 Under the moonlight (9x)
  13. FAKE LOVE

    Looking for criticism on any part of it really - lyrics, voice, melody. catchiness, arrangement - also suggestions for how to take it further! Thanks in advance
  14. Hi guys :)!

    Hey! I just started attempting to song write, and I'm super excited to hear everyone's stuff! I mostly try to make some simple acoustic songs, and usually I fail desperately! I've already heard lots of amazing stuff already in the little bit of time I've been looking, and I'm looking forward to listen to some new art. I hope to learn from many of you, and to get to know you too!
  15. New songwriter to the site

    Hey my name is Mike Magee and I am a 30yr old songwriter. I deal with mostly rap and rnb with a little of pop. I have always had an immense love for music since I was younger and I actually use to make music myself. I'm not interested to be in the spotlight now a days. I like playing the background and helping others make beautiful music. I look forward to getting to meet new people here!
  16. 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.

  18. 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
  19. New to this, but not new to music!

    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

  21. Demo Reel

    moesdemoreel.mp3
  22. Is this the right pleace to post this? Did record this song/demo at home (on a Boss BR600). Just two guitars and the vocals. It is not ment to be a perfect demo just a recording to get/give an impression about what the song could become (Idea for a song). I would appreciate some feedback. What do you think of what I have so far? Thanks in advance Roll the dice: Let’s roll the dice, let the game begin. What are the changes, to lose again. If this is what you’re living for, If this is what you’re longing for. No one said it would be easy, but it might be worth trying. For there may never be a time like this again (bay). And you may never get a chance like this again. For you may never feel alive like this again (bay). And the clock keeps ticking… Let’s roll the dice, double our lost bet. Let’s grab that last chance, before we go to sleep. And in the morning we’ll start over, and try it all again. No one said it would be easy, but it might be worth trying. For there may never be a time like this again (bay). And we may never get a chance like this again. For we may never be alive like this again (bay). And the clock keeps ticking…
  23. waywardyouth

    Hi! I’m mid-level writer with a strong urge (for now) to make progress in my songwriting and help others in any way that I can. I’ve had it in my head to start writing songs since I was 15 and in recent years I’ve gained a little knowledge. I hope that I may, at long last, be able to write songs that I can be proud of (an end goal I’m sure most of us have). I have a background in writing and I know just how isolating it can sometimes be. So I hope that I can offer friendship or, at the very least, a critical eye to those that need it!
  24. Hey! My name is Vita Sky! And I am a young artist in pop genre. My girl left me for my best friend. I have my Kickstarter project and trying to record and album #YouLeft.
  25. My "Success Story"

    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.
