Thank you very much. Have a couple
more to add... Just finishing them up
I m your fan
been a while...mmm, k longer than expected lol.
here's Say A Prayer ;)
Congrats on your song success Todd! I'm new to Broadjam. trying to figure it all out. How long did the Learning Curve take you to navigate / understand broadjam?
Hi Linda, Thanks! how long? it depends on what you want out of broadjam. I have met some talented people here and it's interesting how people write and record their art forms. I have done well on the charts (good reviews) but I really submitted them for feedback, so I could try to become a better writer :) it certainly as helped. broadjam has been updating and improving their features so you just kind of have to look at what they can do for you ;) Good luck Todd
Happy to do it for you. You write good songs. I also like the way you put the mixes together. I certainly can appreciate perhaps just a little more (your songs), as when there is only one person; it certainly takes more talent, time and effort to make the song sound the way we would like; it's a alot of hats to wear! lol
Broadjam certainly has voted several of our songs into the charts which is nice to see.
Keep up the great work :) Todd
(emali was error-ing out, so replying here instead). Thanks for the feedback on "the Chase" Todd. I really appreciate it. Looks like we are each doing the one-man-show thing (and perhaps succeeding to a degree if broadjam is a fair barometer of things to come for each of us ?? ).
wow! I love your songs!
Yes Yes, Butterfly Wings, very nice.
A humble thank you to you for the kind words Todd. Have a great holiday weekend.
Just put up a new song called "Everything We Wanted To Be." Perhaps you will enjoy that if you liked Butterfly Wings (?). Only if you have time of course :)
I had a chance to listen, it's a good song too. I like the first a little better though. You do nice work. Like the voice, sounds good :)
Thanks Todd. Your spot on the top's is earned as well :)
Thanks, I appreciate it.
I wonder why - great guitar playing and singing - my wife said "cool song". Nice job all round - falsetto at the end a nice surprise (could be up in the mix a tad?). Hope you sell some songs!
Thanks Micheal, and yes I agree about the vox in the mix. It's being licensed in a upcoming movie and I just finished tweaking the mix for it (vox higher up in the mix), I'll probably add it here soon. I listened to Travelogue, very very nice. I gave it "5 stars" and sent it to facebook :) Loved the playing, you captured it well; nice mix. I bet it's just fun fun fun to play. Best to you, Todd
thanks for connecting and the compliments; I appreciate them :) I liked the feel of "This Is From Us To You" is nice. Best to you and yours, Todd
That coming from you; means so much to us. God bless!
I love your song "I Wonder Why". You're a very talented artist....great vocals!
Thank you, very much appreciated :)

Great Job Todd....Love your work! Lori
Hi Chaz, I have been using Digidesign/Protools 8.4 LE and have been happy with it. A lot of ways to create and edit. I elected to use them as many studios use them in Chitown and I wanted to make it seamless if I decided to do some collaborative work.
I have heard your work and its good but also remember that a better recording would do it justice. Glad to help, good luck!
how do i get it/download it? is it free?
hey todd..lori jennerjohn suggested i contact you about the music software program you use..pleas get back to me. thx.
Hi Laura, Happy Holidays! Just wanted to drop a line and say thank you for "I Wonder Why" review; very much appreciated. I didn't get to go to Willow Creek this year ..but here is a link to the site
I am always impressed by their band..top notch singers and players, so if you get a chance :)
Thanks again for the review! By the way, did you recognize what the song was about?
Not exactly a "pop-pop" song lol. Best to you, Todd
Shoot I am such a blonde...I lost your comment on my page. Can you cut and paste it back...lol. I am such a blonde I just wanted to send what I said to your mailbox and keep the post short and Thank you zone? WOW? These buttons are to easy to push. I will send what I erased to your mail....lol and maybe you can repost your comment? It is those that keep me going. Thank you and sorry for the blonde Thang? LOL Lori
Wow, all this trouble and I can't email you what I said so you are on line and hope laughing at me for my blondness...but sorry. Gotta connect before I can email. So. after all this I don't blame you for not...Lori Wow at myself again??? Something simular like this happened to me last night to....so unprofessional working with professionals. Still Learning! My heart is true!
Todd will you connect with me...My connect button is gone on you...I really deleated more thank I wanted. Anyway I am taking you advice and working on my mix's and really want you to here it again in the future? ok...I really valued you opinion. Please fingure it out for me and I promise I wont hit that delete button! Thanks Lori :)
Thank You!!! :)
Hi Lori, Happy Holidays! been a litte busy with them lol,
who played guitar on your tracks? very cool :)
V G, Thank you for the great review..much appreciated :) Your sound and songs sound great..sweet horns, very nice. Happy Holidays Todd
Thanks for reviewing my song "can't remember." Can you clarify why many of the ratings were 4's if you found no cons about the song?
...diggin' "I wonder why" right now btw :)
Hi Shawn, great Q?, lol. Reviews are subjective I suppose, as I could find anything that was "wrong", only more on preference. I really like the way your song comes in but as a songwriter/musician I could hear the next change differently than what you produced..that's an opinion. 4's in my world are actually very good when I give them, so is a decent review. I like your music btw, good writing,performing and good production. Glad you liked I Wonder Why. Happy Holidays! Todd
Good to know. Thanks for clarifying, and thank you for the compliments about my music. I had the pleasure to learn some invaluable tips from a highly successful songwriter (40M+ sales) several years ago, so I guess it shows :) Happy holidays to you too Todd!
hi Todd--just upgraded my production measurably and added 2 new songs: "It Ain't My Time" and "Color the World". Let me know whatchya think :) Wishing you peace, prosperity, health, and happiness!
It Ain't My Time sounds great! Good mix of guitars, strings and vox..you did a really nice job, Color the World's production is good too, but I liked the first one better. Voice sounds great. Happy Holidays..sorry took so long, busy with holidays lol, best to you and yours, Todd
Thanks for the good reviews of "I Wonder Why" and "We Are We", insightful and helpful, much appreciated. All the best, Todd
Hi Todd, you are most welcome and listening to your songs again actually confirms to me that you got good thing going! Kind regards. Craig.
Thanks Todd. Glad you liked my tune! Chiz.
Hi Laura, Thank you for the "On My Way To Heaven" review, much appreciated! I had a chance to listen to your songs, very nice. Reminded me of Willow Creek Church's featured songs..they have a smokin band and the singers are exceptional; the church is here in the states (Illinois USA). I believe they have a Christmas video taping every year, maybe you might want to check the singers and band out, always exceptional. Good luck to you, Happy Holidays Todd
You're Welcome Todd. Keep singing.
Hi Todd- I just reviewed 'I Wonder Why' and for the fourth time in my last five reviews it disappeared when I clicked on submit- what a pain in the art. Anyway for what it's worth I like the song and said so. I think it's very George Harrison and I wanted to hear a sitar in the mix. It's got a good hook and a good groove. I think it could use a simple melody line during the guitar changes in the middle- nothing fancy maybe the 5 or 6 note sitar solo I heard in my head. What can I say- I heard George in there. Nice tune.
Hi Rob, Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts and review. I have had some issues too with the broadjam review program not doing exactly what it is suppose to do..felt bad for the artist as I usually like the song when it happens. And yes, I agree something would sound nice there in the middle, I elected to "give it a rest" and come back later to it, fresh. Harrison is huge compliment so thank you. If you hadn't taken the time to write to me, I would of never known of your review as broadjam never sent the completed review. So thanks again, I really do appreciate your taking the time to review and share your valuable feedback. Happy Holidays to you and yours, Todd
Hey Todd thanks for the review - I will look at the mix again - you're not the first to mention the reverb! Good luck!
We have three different singers singing this song, each in our own style.....mine was the one you heard the other day, this is my daughter's and I suppose eventually you'll run in to my wife's....thank's again!
Thanks for the flattering review!
I actually wrote this as an instrumental
solo for Arturo Sandoval on an ill-fated
Sicilian festival we were supposed to do!
Kristin, my better half, and sometimes
co-writer wouldn't hear of that because
she loved the melody and insisted on
writing a lyric, which when it was completed
and I heard it, I liked it immediately.....
On the session, I used live strings and
besides me singing it, Kristin did a version
as did my daughter Brooke....we also
did a video on the making of "Waiting For
You", which I'll probably stick up on youtube
and possibly b'jam around the new year....
yes yes, like that song. strings are awesome too
btw....video is up on youtube at 247hdjazz
Hey Harrison! I see your still writing great songs..hadn't heard from you in a while, thanks for the review, Todd
Hello and thanks very much for the review of our song Probably Wrong. Out of all the tunes on our record, that one is the most well received. Appreciate your kind comments!
Dave from the Bros Dimm
Your very welcome. Really like that tune. Good luck to you! Todd
Hello, it is nice to see that you make a lot of reviews at the moment. You made 5 reviews
to different songs of mine. The first advice I like to give you is, because of the internationality of broadjam artists, to try to write reviews in understandable English.
Your reviews weren't any helpful to me, because your comments are based on your taste
and not on technical advice. For example you wrote I should use a better recording but
you didn't say what exactly should be improved. I could accept that from a fan member
but not from an artist. There are a lot of artists with high responsability to each other during the process of reviewing on broadjam. But a handful of members don't understand
the way of reviewing on broadjam. They are only making reviews to get back a lot of reviews to reach the top ten charts, this reminds me of how politicians do their work.
I think broadjam is a platform to exchange experience not taste.
Hi Gerald, your points are well taken. The last song that was reviewed was stopped by a technical malfunction and unfortunately I wasn't able to enjoy the rest of the song. Yes, I have reviewed quite a few songs and up until now, I haven't had anyone complain or give advice; however I do welcome your comments. I did go back and look at the reviews of your songs. Yes, I had indicated " a better recording" but you were right that I was not specific enough. I had noticed that the level of the voice track jumped up at some points and had not shared that with you...my apologies. I did like the song but felt that it would of sounded better if the vocal dynamics were smoother. As to scoring, I try to base it on the "curvature" of what other artists are sharing in their creations. I hope most agree or find the reviews helpful; my reviewing "score",provided by Broadjam Members, has been very good. (for what it is worth)
I will however in the future try to be more specific and clearer in my reviews. I appreciate the response, Thank You, and Good Luck to You, Todd
Hello Todd, thanks a lot for your answer. The points in the
reviews are secondary for me if they are not explained
(even lesser or better points). This is the way I make
reviews to other artists on broadjam, I try to explain the
reasons for better or lesser points.
Your explaining what "better recording" means is well for
me now. I will have a look on it now and work it out.
My level of the reviewing "score" is very good too, so this is perhaps the reason that we talk about that little
problem in the moment.
If you like we can stay in touch and connect.
Best wishes to you and your work
Hey Dan, Thanks for the great review of We Are We, much appreciated, Todd
Hi Dorothy, Thank you for the great review of We Are We, I appreciate it. You have quite a diversity of music, like it! Unconditional Love has a kewl driving bass line..fun and danceable. Cheers! Todd
