No thanks, close this window
Many thanks for the stars for Remember Last Summer, much appreciated.
I love your "Remember Last Summer"! Beautiful sentiment and brings memories to so many of us, "the way we were". Hope you and family are all well. I have had a lot of trouble with this site vs Google Chrome. No music files would work, (all of a sudden!), so I've uninstalled it several times, and now on Bing, and was able to bring everything back up. I've been wresting with this for over a week!
Hard to believe that we are so close to September, once again, and looking forward to autumn!
"Talk" to you later!
Thanks for the comments, and your perseverance! Glad you liked the song.
Lots of people have had problems with the BJ site recently. It's very poor and has had major glitches since they modernized it.
Thanks for the update Bob. I miss the last version of BJ; so much easier to navigate and, less issues!
Try moving over to BRAVE browser...it is all I use now....plus, Safari, too... Brave is very good.....
cyn who? Corkran?
I will try Brave Chet Thanks So Much!!! catnip=+=
Hope all is well with you!
I've been using the Brave browser for a long time now, is far better than most, and less invasive. This Bjam site is still full of problems nonetheless, some I've reported. By far the worst aspect is the mail system. Try following a mail message conversation - the sent folder doesn't even tell you who each message was sent to! Not good.
Thanks for the stars on Never Surrender, much appreciated!
Chet ... Love you man. Thanks for the 5 stars pal. Take care.
Thank you for the 5 star rating on my songs, "Love Was Born" and "I"m The Avenging Angel". I appreciate it. Linda
Hi Chet, Many thanks for the stars on We Have Been Young, I'm most grateful.
Hey Frank, Thanks for giving my new song, "Walking In Circles" and for giving it a hug and welcoming into your music love bucket. I do a lot of instrumental work, too. Music comes a'knockin' at my door and I just throw another log on the fire and say, "Come on in"! Check out my new album, "Drifting Fog". It is an ambient-meditation project. Some of the songs at at Broadjam. You'll like it, well, maybe. Don't listen to it when you drive, you might nod off. God bless, Chet Nichols - http://www.chetnichols.net 1
Billy! How is the Waving Prairie treating you. We keep talking about maybe moving back to Lawrence.... that would be weird, but Chicago is terribly dangerous and the state now SUCKS. Anyway, thank for the 5-star nod for my song, "Your Eyes Speak Louder Than Words"> I love that song, now is I could get Adele to sing it.....!! I hope all is well with you. I listened to After 8...nice work.
God bless you, buddy....Chet Nichols
PS. I just posted a happy, new song, "The Apocalypse".... powerful images. Sometimes, I just have to let the beast out of the barn, ya know?
Who needs Adele when YOU sang it so awesome!?!!
Keen tune Chet. I look forward to hearing The Apocalypse.
Peace and tons of it brother,
Hi Miss Storm,
Thank you for the 5-Star nod for my song, "You're Eyes Speak Louder Than Words". Such nice tune. It's great at weddings and birth shows.... etc. I have another song that I would love to hear a bluesy lady sing entitled, "Love Turned Into A Fever"...it is in my song list. Dare I say, it is kinda sexy (like me - ha ha ha ha) and funky (like me-----) and slinky (like, well, a SLINKY)... give it a listen and tell me what you think. Right now the song is sung from a male perspective, but I can change the words to a female perspective. Throw in a funky track and a Gospelette Back-up ground...and it could be smoldering. Hope all is well..... God Bless, Chet Nichols ..... Here is a direct link to the song: https://chetnichols.net/track/14662
Hey Lynn, I am new to Broadjam...but then, again, I am old to Broadjam having been an early adaptor to the site. The new version of Broadjam is one of the best on the web, and YOUR playing helps to give it some shine and luster. I really love your work and will be back to enjoy more. I had to take time away from Broadjam because my vocal chords were paralyzed. My doctor thinks it was an early attempt by Covid to get into my blood, but my supplement regime was unwittingly keeping it at bay... Anyway, I digress. Thanks, again, for the great music...acoustic guitar is one of my great loves... Best, Chet Nichols
Thanks, Amy, for the stars on 2 of my songs - appreciated!
Hey Amy, Nice to hear from you. Thanks for the stars for my song, "Nazareth".... kind of a cross-over, country, Christian tune.
I also just posted a new song, "Your Eyes Speak Louder Than Words (23)". Wrote it for a wedding scene in a movie. Crossing my fingers...
HI Marilyn, Thanks for the 5-star rating my Christmas Song, "That's My Town At Christmas". I had Blake Shelton in mind when I wrote it.... I also posted another new Christmas song, "The Christmas Train", that I think you will like it, too. It has a Boz Skaggs & Brice Hornsby vibe to it. It is a tale about a soldier going back home after being at war to bring a special gift to his beloved. Sweet tune. It is at Broadjam, too. Anyway, I hope you have a blessed Holiday Season. My Best, Chet Nichols
Beautiful song, "The Christmas Train". Thanks for sharing, Chet.
Thanks for the kind words. I love the song, too. It's gotta a lot of likes....but no sync deals. Probably came out with it too late in the season.
I hope all is well with you. I just posted a new song I wrote for a weeding scene in a movie. It is entitled, "Your Eyes Speak Louder Than Words (23)"..... You might like it...
You are welcome and I'll check out your new song. Have a nice day, Chet.
Thanks so much for the 5-Star review of my Christmas song,
"That's My Town At Christmas". It is a fun song and people seem to be enjoying it.
I also posted another new Christmas Song, "The Christmas Train". It is a mellow jazzy-pop effort with a Boz Skaggs and Bruce Hornsby vibe to it. It is a sweet and endearing song that depicts someone going home to a loved one at Christmas. I was inspired by a tale my cousin's husband told me about him taking a train to see my cousin when he was coming home from a war. The idea stuck with me and eventually blossomed into a nice tune. Check it out at my site. I think you will enjoy it. Anyway, I hope all is well with you, especially with the world we live in which is unrecognizable to my thoughts of how it would be when I thought about "the future" and what it would be like.....40 years ago.
God bless and be safe.
You are very welcome, a great Christmas song, and I will check out your new one. Enjoying your music.
Hey Steven, how can I call you? get me at chet nichols at a o l DOT c o m
I am humbly honored Chet to be part of your best Film music playlist. Thanks a lot.
Thierry, That is a magnificent composition and I understand the efforts put out to create such masterpiece.... I am going to go back and listen again. Once I finish this wacky lire street-corner Christmas song. Dedicating to Jerry Lee Lewis.... Be well. Chester
Thanks for the 5-star review of my song, "The Christmas Train". Glad you enjoyed and appreciated it... Gos Bless, Chet
Yes, that was me in the call with Barry.... I am so glad to see your successes. We have the same goals, but I have yet to crack the nut.. Hope it happens soon...
Best to you and keep up the great work.
It's a long road, Chet. I had some success in the past with Dean Anderson, alias Hans Bolex on Broadjam, who mentored me to fit some hot music library leads. I'm on my own for a few years now and have trouble getting consistent results. But, I keep trying because it's fun. What I've learned is:
1. The work has to be stellar and you have to meet their criteria exactly (i.e., subject, style, instruments, mood, track length, etc.)
2. You have to hook them within the first 10 seconds of the song or they just move on to the next submission.
3. People succeed in making some kind of living out of this business after 5 to 10 years of submitting hundreds of tracks a year. You have to keep searching for opportunities, learning, writing and submitting, not looking back and waiting for results.
Barry's business model might work well for you and I wish you luck. Just remember that he's fulfilling all kinds of different needs. I think that you should also find music libraries that specifically represent your line of work if there are any. I made the mistake once of giving exclusive rights for dramatic and tense instrumental tracks to a music library that specializes in R&B. Those tracks have been just sitting there. Lesson learned.
PS No, exclusive rights to anyone... period. Unless, they get a nice placement..... I have only signed ONE song to an exclusive deal...and the guy disappeared, totally. Now, what? Ha!
Ahhhh, Lawrence...I miss it in many ways. Tonganoxie, especially. Thanks for the 5-stars for my new Christmas song, "The Christmas Train". Sweet tune. Odd how vocally it seems to channel Boz Skaggs and Bruce Hornsby. I recently wrote a song, "The Transportation Blues" and people have said, "How did you get Joe Walsh to sing that song" Huh?
Oh well, I am still chugging along and writing and composing...but I don't write rap or hip-hop, so the music gets some nice nods as people say, "I REALLY prefer EDM". Ha, to wit I say, I am working on some of that.
I Hope you are well and that you have continued success. I love Broadjam's crowd. Had to drop the PRO account because I was getting NO ACTION from their licensing opportunities.....
Anyway, say hello to Liberty Hall for me. I used to rent the top floor at 615 1/2 Mass. right across the street. Had a big music studio and painting studio there.
I hear the Skagg/Hornsby vocal sound in The Christmas Train, and it's spot on for that smooth tune. Good stuff always Chet. You take good care.
Peace and tons of it,
Thank you for 5* on both Memories 🎶🎶Delta
Thanks for the stars on Hopeful Train Ride Home Chester! Much appreciated!
Hey Coreys, glad you liked my blues song, "I Come From Chicago"..... fun song.....
Chet, listening to "Modern Progress", Wowza!! 5 Stars & Likes!! Has a Joni Mitchell, "Paved Parking Lot" feel and sound to it!! Great Job!!
Hope you had a Pleasant Christmas Holiday! Santa brought me some new Underwear, best Christmas I've ever had!!!
Be safe Sir!
Thanks for the *****s on Chasing after the wind Chet...much appreciated.
Thanks you so much for the 5-star rating on my song, "I Wish That I could Heal". So many people have been responding to this song and others on my new albums. "Hollywood Altars" and "Twilight Journals", that we decided to release, "I Wish That I Could Heal" and "The Needle In His Arm".... as singles. Anyway, for a pro like yourself to acknowledge this song is really an honor. I see you are in LA. I've spent over half my life in LA and SF in the music and film business in numerous capacities, so say "Hello" to Dan Tana's and Palm. Please stay in touch..... hope you have a Great Holiday Season. Best, Chet Nichols
Thanks for reaching out and I wish you the best Holidays ever my friend.
Thanks Chet, I like your song as well.
Hi Folks, Very nice work. Inspiring and engaging.
Stop by my site and give me song, "I Wish That I Could Heal".... it is #1 on several charts at Broadjam. Keep up the great work. Best, Chet Nichols
Thanks so much for the playlist add. I have listened to your song and I love it. Well done
GOD BLESS PENNY!
Hey there Chet, playing your song, "Kites In The County" again.........this song is absolutely mesmerizing!! Love the feel of the music and your voice is Over-The Moon Terrific!!!
Just a thought.....on your song, I hear a possible Soft Slide guitar or maybe a Harmonica?? You play incredible Harmonica, so that would be easy to do! Just a thought Sir, don't mean to tell you how to produce your music.....there just seems like there are many open sections in your composition, where an additional instrument would add to the total composition??
Stay Safe & wear a Mask!!
Thanks, Art! Interesting suggestion... and nice compliment.... but that song is done, mastered, released.... so, I won't be changing anything. I have a new solo album that is going to use much more slide, mandolin, dulcimer, harmonica and soft percussion... very sparingly.... biggest issue is having time....with having to work 70 hour weeks... which is slowly frying my brain!!!!! Hope you are well....
Chet, Sorry that you have to work 70 hours a week!! I couldn't do that, even if God were working beside me every moment of the day!! I can barely get around anymore....my three (3) back surgeries are really starting to majorly slow my ARS Down!
Again, Love your "Three Kites in the Fountain" Tune, Hee Hee!
Stay Safe Buddy!!
Thanks Chet, for the 5 stars on Beautiful
