  1. Linnon - Sometime

    At the moment working with an amazing singer \ songwriter with dark soulful female vocals and unique style, Linnon https://soundcloud.com/linnon/ Think this track almost done and should be ready after a few tweaks, Just let me know if you would have any thoughts
  2. Hi all. I've been working a funk tune. I've been experimenting with distilling that 70s soul/funk vibe, but then put it into a modern EDM-type production. I hope this comes across as such? Let me know what you think of it. I've posted the lyrics, but they're of secondary importance. So unless something is completely off with them, I'd appreciate feedback on anything that might stick out as wrong with the music or production. Thanks! https://soundcloud.com/will-sketches/superking-electro-funk-remix Chorus/hook: If I do that one thing Can I be your superking If I do that one thing Can I be your everything Verse: Look at you, I'm getting excited Standing in the bus I love your shoes, to dance all night in Just the two of us I feel your breath all over my body Your perfume fills the air And tonight you have decided To let me take you there
  3. New song ft. chloe Opondo.. Written, performed, recorded and produced by me. Thanks!
  4. Linnon - Run!

    https://soundcloud.com/linnon/ While this one would require more work than Sometime, since it is a more complex mix with three bass lines, Looking forward for any thoughts, Thank you!
  5. BiPolar

    I can't seem to hold these feelings in Scary thoughts of my past keep creeping up my back Spent hours trying erase this user error Trying to explain but I'm clinically insane It will only confuse the common sane Hollow shell of a man Playing the victim hoping to see some change Seven personalities make up the daily Never steady like your best mate But shaky as f*ck can you relate But those who really know me know the meaning behind these faces Angry outbursts last for seconds becoming diversions to the Decisions on the fly leaving my pocket high and dry as Moments of darkness haunt my days leaving me Craving isolation to set myself apart from the population As anxious thoughts stack up Heightening frustration Have you ever had happiness leave quicker than lightning I go in hoping for the best but that feeling just left me like the rest Leaving me voiceless amongst my competition f*ck all this mental stress I can't let myself give in Bending to the will of others is out of the question But to allow inhibition to affect my decisions Is like negotiating with terrorists making deals with our nation During these times of oppression we need the voice of a leader Suggesting Snowden's return doesn't sound so bad either His premonition of corruption causing chaos and destruction The only one to acknowledge our legislation is conning our knowledge Exposing secrets of those now buried in coffins Sparking feelings to rise up and speak Riots spread like fire each one so unique Not racist, but black lives matter is just a cover for a bigger matter Pulling back the wool that covers our eyes We're just drones controlled until the day we die Bicker behind the keys of a message board Slandering others just to boost our petty ego But my ego is like a Christmas party's ugly sweater Funny and weird as can be But reserved like a fine wine Sitting on your shelf just passing the time Until the day you're ready to face the man you've become A mere reflection of your father What the f*ck I told myself I would never be my father I told myself I would do what he didn't and go farther That my kids will never grow up like we did Inadvertently his words of wisdom reached my heart Soon after his love was ripped from my arms Distance causes family to speak not so frequently Daily activities converted into descriptive journal entries Only to read them off to a voice heard through the receiver But I understand now what it all entailed You fought the hardest fight that any man would ever allow Thoughts of your kids growing up without your presence Drove a stake through your heart you couldn't help but scream out A silent cry for help you hid it so well But I understand now To sit by and wait must've been hell You did it for the sake of saving face I pray everyday that you're not so overwhelmed
  6. A Little Introduction by Soul

    So yeah my name is Soul Was looking for a forum like this To share my rhymes is my goal Yes this is my only wish I read all your guidelines and they made it clear That this place is to help everybody here So I promise to be constructive in my critique Not fake and destructive like Mystique All I can spit is the truth And I know people don't like to hear it But that is my sworn oath So I will rap the way I see fit Cause I don't see a point to writing lyrics If there ain't no damn message in it I don't believe writing songs can be so hard All the shit I say comes straight from my heart I use my emotions to make a song This way nothing can go wrong But still I have to stay so f*ckin strong Hey don't get me wrong Things can still f*ck up Explode in your face like a bomb You're stuck in a maze out of luck And guess what no one gives a f*ck I had doubts about this place and still do Don't know if I'll find out anything new And you know whats f*cked? I had this whole intro planned out in my head But now I'm getting way too drunk Perhaps I have been mislead Into thinking I could ever get there Where I truly wanted to be I just want to be free But there is still hope for me Just wait and see I've got lots more lyrics done and some on the way Perhaps I'll get recognition one day And please be patient my fellow rappers I will open up your posts like Christmas present wrappers Looking for something new and exciting On your posts I will be writing Once I sober up and get my mind straight Trying so hard just not to make dumb typos I mean being drunk is so f*cking great But it also means I carry a heavy weight On my soul and myself I truly hope you will accept Me as one of your kind Cause this type of community is so hard to find But I'm here and I'm grateful And instead of being hateful I will be the one to cheer you on Cause everyone deserves a chance so come on! Yes sir I'm way too drunk and gone But this ain't no reason for me stop the fun And this is pretty much the end of my lyrics I've got stuff on SoundCloud with my "horrible" voice in it So if you've found me worthwhile just give me clearance To open up your mind and give me that chance Don't want no words flying off to space without you in it This really is the end of my introduction But no worries there's plenty of stuff in production -Soul signing off Peace blessings and best of luck to all (:
  7. This is the current (and final hopefully) attempt at my song 'Hey' My son Lewis has done the all the vocals. Pete in the studio has laid down all the piano. There's still detail to be added. (private click on the link) Hey! 2am seems a long time ago The coffee excuse has now run dry I think we're kinda getting on But a feedback form would tell me If you like my smile, my eyes, my hair My bold attempt at debonair The tiny peck, it was only fair I'd hate it if the evening ended there Your body language needs translating Am I supposed to read the signs? Do you want to keep me waiting Or have you had too many wines? I like your style your everything No airs and grace no wedding ring You're on my list of favourite things Let's see what the next half hour brings Hey why don't you stay It's warm in here and it's cold out there And you live so far away Hey please say you'll stay Let this cosy Sunday morning be our second date Please stay. I was really kinda hoping Funny looks but nothing spoken You've bruised my heart but nothing's broken I can't keep my drifting eyes wide open Hey please let me stay It's warm in here and it's cold out there And I live so far away Hey please say you'll stay Let this cosy Sunday morning be our second date Please stay

  9. Mrs Boulet - Avithammer Ft S.el

    Mrs Boulet The seduction Don’t burn your wings don’t lose your mind Just take it real slow, don’t leave us behind I’m a new girl in town, not part of your scene Why don’t you slow down, if you know what I mean Yeah you know what I mean The rejection Everything that I say is taken in vain Don’t know where I am, first there’s sunshine then rain I’ve fallen for you, I’ve fallen for you ..it’s simple can be And Mrs Boulet is smiling at me You can love your mother Your sister too You can love your job All the things that you do Another girl’s man is a possibility But Mrs Boulet is smiling at me Ir’s hard to explain the things that you’ve done Face to face with his girl One to one You know you deserve everything that you get Some people get hurt having fun Oh having fun The consequences It’s been two years now and I’m out on my own No-one to call love, no place to call home It just wouldn’t work It just wouldn’t work Everybody could see And Mrs Boulet is smiling at me You can love your mother Your sister too You can love your job All the things that you do Another girl’s man is a possibility But Mrs Boulet is smiling at me
  10. Hello everyone, just wanted to share a song that I wrote few years back. Recently I just finished composing and recording everything in the song. Any feedback would be appreciated. Morning Rain (New Beginning) Music and lyrics by Jon C. Am I the only one who enjoys the morning rain? The great big sky that helps to ease the pain Dreams you have, the life you've got They ain't gonna be the same I can't help asking myself Where's my soul right now? Am I the only one who hides behind my memories? I replay all the pieces just to escape the reality Days go by and I realize It's not about the destiny but a beautiful journey Say goodbye to the dark nights I am gonna get through it one more time Falling down, from thousand miles to the ground Let the rain turn into rivers Flow away yesterday Moving on... I gotta leave it all behind Gotta rediscover my soul This is my new beginning with the morning rain Am I the only one who trapped inside my fantasies? What it seems don't always match with what it means Days go by and I realize It's not about the things you see but the choices you're making Time to stop asking myself where I'm going right now Falling down, from thousand miles to the ground Let the rain turn into rivers Flow away yesterday Moving on... I gotta leave it all behind Gotta rediscover my soul I'm gonna find a new beginning in this morning rain
  11. Black Painted Heart

    Right........ this video is actually filmed and funded by me. In all (without music recording) it cost £400. A mate in Australia edited as a favour and Students from Essex University filmed it at a Railway museum.S.E.L was kind enough to put up with freezing conditions to make this happen. I shot the guitar sequence in the studio. I did it in monochrome as well
  12. The Lion And The Tiger

    Hi, this is my new song, The Lion and The Tiger. It's about fighting for something, and when you don't think you can win sometimes people don't even try. If you value something or someone you should fight for them. Please let me know what you think. I was a bit wobbly on the vocals at the beginning as I was very nervous!! Thanks, Fiona http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EDyFh_t7sI
  13. Blue Winter Soul (Updated)

    I've updated Blue Winter Soul. I decided to completely remove a section of the song and make it a 2 part song instead as I think that would flow better. Please leave any criticism (constructive of course) it would be much appreciated.

  15. On a worldwide hunt for songwriter with SOUL I'm a singer, finding it hard to Define the exact genre, but I think Soul is pretty close. Sort of like a more colorful upbeat version of Adele? Anyway, sure it's hard to find something when you can't even define it - but I know that person is out there somewhere, writing those songs. Influences - Elvis, Amy Winehouse, Cyndi Lauper, Tina Tuner Anywhere here's my latest

Its still a work in progress but I'd love to see peoples opinions on structure and tone and anything else you wish to comment on http://soundcloud.com/user9830292/upd-and-left Am currently and adding bass and hopefully leads. Lyrics are messy at the minute but here goes. Cheers look forward to hearing from ye.
