POP Song looking for a singer :)

I wasn't sure how to approach this subject or even whether to bother but it's always nice to have other peoples advice, thoughts, opinions on things yes? It's really something that might sit better in the Vocals or Song Writing groups but based on past experience activity and response in those places seems a little hard to come by. OK so some of you will know that I'm a singer and occasionally I'll post a collaboration totally based on a lyric because I don't play an instrument. As other lyricists will tell you more often than not it's quite hard to get interest in a lyric only collaboration because, let's face it, as we're generally hundreds or more often thousands of miles apart and often on different time zones it's a real effort to work things out (I really miss the days of being in a band and sitting down with a guitarist to write!) It's far easier for instrumentalists to jump in on a musical bed track than it is to work up musical accompaniment for a plain text lyric from scratch. This is the reason why 99% of the time I enable spin offs on my lyrics because for me to communicate how I '"hear" the song is way too difficult! (That said, I@m really happy that I have a private collab going right now where a couple of talented guys involved in the project have pretty much nailed what I had in mind when I wrote the lyric!) Recently I've had one or two lyrics picked up and spun by other people - The singer in me makes it quite difficult to "let go" of my perception of the song BUT I am always amazed at the results achieved by other people with totally different ideas on what to do with those words! I'm learning to accept that sometimes my total involvement needs to remain as a lyricist and I'm getting increasingly comfortable with that thought! :-) My thanks go out to all who have taken my words and made them more than a poem on a dusty shelf! So I've pondered on this awhile and I've decided that from now on whenever I post a lyric as a collaboration and IF things progress on that original (non spun) collaboration i.e. I'm still listed as the creator - then at that point I am always going to need to step backwards and appoint a manager to run the show. Because put quite simply, I know my limitations and running a whole project involving the music side of things is beyond my level. It's not that I'm lazy it's just that I don't have the skill set and the equipment required to get the job done! So if you're a singer posting lyrics like me, how do you approach your projects please? I'm interested in anything that helps get a project to completion (mine or those of others.) Cheers Dave

Baile Funk The Fabulous Minos Bros (Come To Dig The Dance) Baile funk is a phenomena of Black Brazilian music. But despite a huge fanbase and cultural influence, funk is often criminalised in Brazil because of its origins in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. In fact, it's not just "criminalised", but it's supported by great musicians and producers, black or white. Music is for Musicians, not for criminals.
Just thinking, I'd like to hear any old tracks anyone has, that has, Light and shade, slow to fast, mellow to angry ! If that makes any sense. Pink Floyd as just one example. Dont need to be looking for drums, just like to hear.

True Story. https://www.kompoz.com/music/collaboration/1174495 The Spirit Of Christmas It was dark and grey December all around, They were closing up the shutters in a long- forgotten town, Cold north wind came blowing through and the rain began to fall, The time for songs was over and my bed began to call........ Then I saw him in the distance from the corner of my eye, Would he stop awhile and listen or turn away and walk on by? Been so long since he?d been gone ? I truly thought that he was dead, So I didn?t recognize him ?til I heard the words he said...... You can?t buy it with a credit card ? there?s no charge - the price is free, And you won?t find it in the presents wrapped up underneath the tree, But if you close your eyes, roll back the years - Let the fear and care depart, You will find that Christmas Spirit is alive inside your heart...... He shook my hand and looked into my eyes, Thirty years of emptiness- it?s all too easy to disguise Then he pressed the note into my hand and thanked me for my time, I could see he wasn?t wealthy - he probably needed every dime, The clothes he that he was wearing had all seen better days, Well I tried I tried in vain to reason ?but he just waved and walked away, And although I kept on singing strong the words were hard to find, The lines he spoke so clear and true kept ringing in my mind..... You can?t buy it with a credit card ? there?s no charge - the price is free, And you won?t find it in the presents wrapped up underneath the tree, But if you close your eyes, roll back the years - Let the fear and care depart, You will find that Christmas Spirit is alive inside your heart...... No you can?t buy it with a credit card ? the price of love is free, And you won?t find it in the presents wrapped up underneath the tree, But if you close your eyes then like a child - Let the fear and care depart, You will find that Christmas Spirit is alive inside your heart...... You will find that Christmas Spirit is alive inside your heart. ©Dave Edwards (DTSUK) 7th December 2021

This is Bombino, from Niger. He's got an interesting playing style .. no pick/picks. He uses the backs of his fingernails, on the downstroke, mostly for the rhythm parts, .. I believe. If you have an 11 on the volume knob? .. Maybe use it?

According to Norse mythology there will be a series of future events culminating in a battle, fought between the Æsir and Einherjar on one side and the forces of Surt, Loki and Loki's children on the other, in which all of creation is burned down and almost all life is extinguished.

Crush A new Song with Mike on board ! Mike - Vocals - Lyrics - Electric Guitar Solo Mini - Electric Guitar - Electric Bass - Drums ( Midi - Plastic )
This is kind of a help wanted but, not going to be tackling this until late January or February so, just putting my feelers out at the moment. I just want to see if there is any talent interested in helping me out that can justify what I'd like to do. For years, I've wanted to cover and update "Communion With The Sun" by Utopia (Todd Rundgren). I'm not big on covers. I've spent 30 plus years writing originals but, Kompoz here gives me a larger world of talent to explore in order to give this great tune a little justice. I'm currently looking for vocals but, that could change. I'm a drummer and will be handling all percussion parts. I believe I have keys handled and guitar (Rhythm, lead and bass) but, I'm not sure if the people I've talked to already can handle those parts yet so, if interested go ahead and throw your name in the pot. I'm currently in the process of obtaining rights for the song, and will not try to do the project unless I am successful. I'm also well aware of people that are completely against using Kompoz for cover projects, and I get it but again, this is a song that has gotten me out of bed and in a good mood for 40 years. If interested, comment and I'll contact you when I get the project initiated. Much thanks, Matt
Any contribution is welcome, but I would like to see Vocals, Horns, Guitar, Organ :-)

Well, After I got super drums from Chris, I made a new mix ;) ( Thanks a lot, Chris !) I "adjusted" the drums and the bass and made a few small changes... Comments are welcome ! Hope you like it ;)
