My name is Brian (aka-simplechain) and I recently joined Kompoz. I've been doing home recording thing for a while and was very excited to find this site because I like to focus on singing/songwriting rather than recording my own instruments. I'm primarily a ballad vocalist who clicked with this song and like to work in harmonies with different vocal styles usually separated by an octave.
I've just completed my first project with grovermusic who is an amazing guitarist and essentially one-man band. Our song (I contributed lyrics/vocals), Summer without You, is the yin to Carrie Underwood's and the Dixie Chick's Yang, cause for every cheatin' boyfriend husband or wife-beating Earl out there, there's a premadonna high school girl that messes with guys heads. The song link is here:
Please take a listen and leave a comment. We have gotten some positive preliminary feedback, and some have mentioned this song might be a candidate for a staff pick. It appears self-promotion is encouraged on this site, so in case you'd like to see this become a staff pick, you could recommend it here.
Nowhere near my listening style, but I kept listening - that must be a plus :)
Glad I did because the last quarter was great. In fact I want to say that the backing harmonies should be also used at the beginning because they bring the song alive and it becomes real catchy. I'm talking about the 'oooo's' that then change note, the first note blended great and would maybe grab peoples attention to the song straight away if used at the start.
