I enjoy writing catchy pop songs and arranging them. By the way, in my Latest News, I look for fun things to talk about: trivia, geek tricks, and I enjoy featuring you and your songs.

Get some punch! Contact Arden Sn

Hey, Catsters!
Engineers often say to let another engineer mix and master your song because you're too close to your song. That's where Arden Snow can come in. He can give you clarity, atmosphere, and punch! Try him out.
Here's what Steve Dafoe says about "Ride the Wave," which Arden Snow just produced: "Solid rock that delivers. Well constructed and pro produced. Good balance of instrumentation with a strong melody."
While you're on Arden's page, listen to some of his songs. (Well, listen to a few of mine, too, but that's beside the point.)

I'm going to guess: "We Didn't Have Time Enough."

Hi John,
Great to hear from you again! I absolutely vote you as one of if not...THE best reviewer on Broadjam. You always provide in depth, meaningful and helpful comments/perspectives in your reviews. It's obvious from your comments that you truly LISTEN to the song... noting technical and philosophical aspects.

I really appreciate your review on "I Make a Difference". Just the fact that you called out my intentional use of those same two notes placed every two measures is very percipient. That juxtaposed to me wife's lyrics reflects how something so simple... so seemingly insignificant... can indeed make a difference in so many ways.

Thanks for another comprehensive and useful review.

I'll be sure to check out some of your latest stuff... it's been a minute since I've been on your page.

Be and stay well,

Thank you, Frank! Trying to stay out of harm's way. I had to go into SMIL imaging yesterday. The scheduler said she would type into my chart that I prefer the staff who attended me to wear masks. We asked three times if my wearing a mask was okay. "Oh, no problem!" When I followed the tech into the x-ray room, she took off her mask and wanted me to take mine off, too. I told her I wouldn't. They weren't imaging my face. So she and another tech were put off. It took them a half-hour and did them over saying my mask was in the way. I was upset on leaving. Found out the scheduler did not put it in my chart. The manager said, "We follow CDC guidelines and we cannot force our staff to wear masks." Arizona is very much an anti-mask state. When Lora and I are out, more often than not, we are the only ones masked. We use N and K-95s. Politics and personal vanity must NEVER get in the way of physical and mental health! It is a huge flaw in our society and government. Anyway, trying to get my mind distracted again with my songs. I'm going to redo "Sunny Sunday" again because I really like Sofi's folky vocals and get Arden Snow's piano on there...and get the sound updated! John

So sorry to hear about your experience at SMIL.

I totally agree that politics and personal vanity must NEVER get in the way of physical and mental health. It's disappointing to hear that a facility that is intended to help and/or heal people, is falling short of respecting the patient's preference. To your point, that preference leads to comfort which in turn leads to mental wellness. And both Jane and I truly believe that our mental health has a profound impact on our physical health.

Hang in there John, and I hope all turns out okay for you.
