Cool. Will do.....:-)
Hi Natalee, Thank you for your very nice reviews (2) of my music. I have a feeling I am going to like your music too. All the best and I hope you are well. CenterPeace
You have an incredible amazingly high-quality catalog of absolutely diverse very beautiful music!
Thank you for a support.
Hi John, Thank you for the great review of "Just Breathe". I can't believe how spot on your analysis was. It's not often I get such a thorough and compelling review and many other reviewers have not seen the beauty within this song and production the way that you did. I worked on this song for many months and even with a somewhat unconventional arrangement I really like it this way... The moody instrumental section coda and half-time synth solo for example. There are 3 writing contributors and some guest musicians but it's all my production from "The Womb recording Studio". CenterPeace
Hi Kate, thank you for the fine numbers once again, this time on my middle eastern rocker "Moroccan Star". You are always so kind, you seem to find my best songs for review lol. xox I am not familiar with Audiosparx but am looking at it now. Thank you again... looks similar to this site? But anything to get my good ole songs into fresh ears I am interested.
AudioSparx is different. They are a very expansive licensing company. They have their fingers in all the international pies. I have received some licensing deals through them over the years, not a lot, but some, and each an interesting application. RadioSparx has been good for me too, thousands of streams. Every quarter I get a check from them. Could be $60 or more. The only beef I have with them is they take 60% and the artist gets 40%. But for all the work they do, they are probably worth it. The main thing is to get your metadata in there and do a good job of it. You never know what will pop up next! One time they put my Hot Boiled Peanuts song on a playlist that got like 80,000 streams or something. I think my check was over $200 that quarter (see me dancing?) But that was a one-off thing. You just never know. They are HIGHLY professional and very good at answering my questions. They are very LEGAL and know their stuff. Tell 'em Mrs. Kate sent you! MK
Hi Kate , I've just signed up to AudioSparx , but on the new option they're offering .
Now all I have to do is how to navigate their website !
What new option is that???
Thank you so much for your review of "March of the Militant" a song that I did obsess on and spend hours perfecting. You were very kind tho... I really like your music too and look forward to reviewing more of your songs and I hope you get more of mine too... CenterPeace
You are welcome Dave,just let me know anyway i can help and have a great rest of your evening!
Dave, Thanks for taking the time to review "Tortured Trumpets". Your comments and advice are very helpful.
Hi Dave - thanks for the exceptional review of my anthemic rock piece (edited instrumental version of "What About My Reward"). I appreciate the time you took, even mentioning the timing change! That was done with just 2 players, a drummer and a multi-guitarist/bassist. Written in 1972 it only took me a little over 40 years to get into the studio and breathe life into it.
Hi Bob, really enjoyed your work on this song... 40 year?! That sounds about right. I'm so glad this song found the light of day. Looking forward to the next.
Hey There David, great to finally see you in Video Person after 6 years, you played drums on one of our tunes......way back when!! Listening to "Funkish" killer Groove Sir! Boy.....everyone is Jamming to the Hilt!!
Stay Safe and Keep Sporting a Mask!!
Thank you Art!! Yes of course I remember you, I love your music!! If you'd like to see more, I have many performance videos posted to my YouTube https://www.youtube.com/user/gruvpi
Hi Jeff, Thanks for the review of Moroccan Star... So cool, Alan Parsons, I can totally hear that... and a lot of my songs have a Floyd vibe but this may blow your mind... I wrote this song in memory of Ronnie Montrose after he passed away so young back around 2014?? Anyways, I got to play with Ronnie, two auditions back in the mid 80s but I didn't get the gig... was a great experience playing with him though. Thanks for the good review!!
Hi Dave, it's an awesome track. I very much enjoyed listening to it. If I enjoyed listening to everything here as much, I'd be here all day just listening.
Hi Fred, thank you for the score on "Generations"... I appreciate your kind review... from your kind lol. I hope you are doing well.
Hello there my friend, fancy getting a review from you... hahaha. I was so relieved that it was a great review!! Song was pretty old though so some of the sounds were not top notch and yes the production was not to my current standards but you were very kind in your review. I hope you are doing well and it was good to 'see' you here again.
Great to hear from you too Dave! Hope you're well. Your song was excellent by the way. No doubt we'll bump into each other again at some point. David.
Dave here again... this doesn't happen very often but you almost nailed the name of my song "March of the Militant" with your title "The March"... so I guess that point was very well represented in the song. Yes I set out to create a 'period piece' and pretty much nailed the march part. Thank you for the props on my orchestration; I have always felt this good about the construction of melodies in this song... you were spot on with all of your comments especially about my weak (mostly brass) sound palette, I know it's actually embarrassing to me because I have a pretty high recording standard but it's also a pretty old song. However I do want to point out that you missed on one comment; you were certain that the snare drums had to be virtual (not played live) which was similar to a comment you had on another song you reviewed where you thought the guitar player virtual... this time I think your comment was "You've also made the marching snare sound live though it certainly is not"... wrong, most certainly the snare drum playing feels live because it is live, I played the snare drum. That is quite a complement!! I did a lot of overdubs on various drums to create that disheveled Civil War military band sound. I do things old school like still recording live people. Also I'm into world music so hopefully you'll have a chance to review some of those songs.. I appreciate your fair and thorough reviews.
Snare definite sounded live, I should have figured that means it's live :) Surrounded by sampled instruments I figured it was sampled. After I realized it was you that did it I figured it was probably live as I recall from one of your reviews that you are a drummer that owns a studio. Great work Dave.
Hi Jeff, Thanks for your fair and detailed review of "Apocalypse". No virtual guitar players in this studio, I appreciate the review points.
Thank you so much for your great review and nice comments about my collaborative song "Thirty Year Kiss". I appreciate great reviews from other quality members :-)
Listened to Destined to Fly - AWESOME job!!!
Thank you Natalee... It was a great collaboration to come up with that final product... Check out the vocal version of the song, it's even more intense!! https://www.broadjam.com/songs/cent
Thank you so much! I really appreciate your comment
Dave, thank you ever so much for your spot on review of' "Chicken".. This is an old recording.. around 1990..Yep, it would need a complete redo!!Your professional review is much appreciated.. Ron
Dave thank you so much for your kind review of Strychnine. By far my favorite review to date. I like the old cliché of Less is More. It doesn't work for everything of course but I feel that a lot of music nowadays is way over produced. There is something to be said about space that appeals to my ears. Thank you very much for hearing that man. Best to you
Dave, thank you fo a very good and thorough review of "He Doesn't Know." I very much like your suggestion to cut down the guitar volume at 2:03. It would help bring in that build up I try to achieve as the song progresses. You have great versatility and craftsmanship!
Hey John, that's awesome that my suggestion worked out for you... thank you. In the recording, editing and mixing process, listen to your music very closely, in a quiet setting, and try to take 'yourself' out of the driver's seat and become an un-invested observer. Glad I could help, good luck out there... I'm gonna take another listen, thanks for the message.
Hi Kate, thank you for your nice review of "Circumstance"... just wanted to inform you that yes the violin in the track is an actual person... Leah Zegar, she's an awesome musician who before Covid was touring with Hans Zimmer
I've got a great violinist too, Rebecca Zapen. Google her
Thanks Dave for your spot on review of "Paper Moon" which was recorded in the late 90's...
Jeff Fong played all the brass as well as the keyboards.. Pam Homzey, Jeff's better half, played all the sax parts.. Erin, their daughter played the flute on 'fly me to the Moon".. That left me left me do the vocals...
Where were you when we could have used you to do the drum tracks!!lol
Again many thanks. Keep safe and well,
I'm here Ronald... would love to be apart of your productions should you need to go down that path. Great stuff!
Thank you for your very kind review of "Destined To Fly"... it's female vocals you asked for, it's female vocals you get... the song you reviewed is the instrumental version of this one... https://www.broadjam.com/songs/cent
