A New Day

Recommended Posts

Hi Everybody,

This is a track off my album "Apartment 4".  I'm not really a piano player, but I figured out the chords for this on my E-MU 61 and practiced until I did a decent take.  It's really the only piano song that I've written.  All comments and critiques are welcome, and thanks for listening.

 

Here it is:

Well cool song, love the vocal as usual. Overall it hasn't got the level of mix polish of your more recent stuff, but I get it's older. It reminds me a bit of something like  an old early unreleased Beatles work-in-progress tune that somebody had tucked away in a closet. Are you planning to work it over? Again with your vocal it still works as is.

 

cheers,

-Tom

vocal is really good as expected and I thought you did very well with the piano.
this song isn't up to the level of the others you've posted I think because this one's not quite as melodic. something like that not sure.

Hey, your vox sounds a little like Liam Gallagher - nice.  You need to do some work on this demo but it's a good start you've got here.  I'd like to hear a future version of it.

I love the sound of your vocal. like you said you're not a piano player, so in that spirit the song is good..

BTW You should be singing in the band Live.

Hi Doug

Cool song and great vocal.

I agree with Tom that this isn't as polished as your recent stuff - it could be a good one to re-record.

Not bad at all for an old recording.  The song is stellar material.  As far as the production and performances, I go with the others who say to re record it because now you could probably bring out much more of the luster that the song deserves.

Good song. Agree with Tom about the polish. On the system I was listening on here at work the hi-hats were too up-front though out the song.

As I was listening I kept thinking an strumming acoustic  guitar would fill this out some more.

But your vocal performance in this was really good. Like others have said, that was a keeper.

This has the making of a really good song. Good verses and catchy chorus. It would be worth it to get it updated.
