No thanks, close this window
Love "Empire State " Jay...Really soothing :)
Why thank you Miss Penny!
I hope you are well its always good to hear from you on BJ.
I'm finding the same - just not many new songs in this category.
Hi Laurence, it's been a while. I Haven't been very active on BJ, to be honest I got a little disillusioned with the whole thing but covid has meant more time on my hands so here I am again. I've been quite active writing and recording with a couple of new albums on johnevanstunes.com but I was a bit surprised to find that the pool of songs waiting to be reviewed was apparently dry! talk soon, take care mate. John.
Great that you've kept writing and recording I'll definitely give them a listen.
I've got a best of and brand new set out over the next few months(ITunes Amazon etc).
You too take it steady as we come out of covid.
Lets keep the music coming from this island !
I am in love with Greg Johnson's song "The Moon Just Seems To Know" Fabulous!!!!!
Thanks for the nice review of "Blues Conversation", Laurence. I appreciate it!
Thanks for your recent review of my song "Enjoy Life". I am so glad you enjoyed it. Have a great day.
Thanks for the amazing review of "Friends Don't Let Friends Drive Everyone Crazy", Laurence! Funny you mention Katy Perry, as I wrote it with her in mind (of course I have NO IDEA how to get it to her) but glad that comes through.
Great song and production Bob - if Katy(or more likely her crew) listen in to Broadjam she should grab this track with both hands !
Laurence...You wondered what the Hanging Tree is, well the song came from the movie the "Hunger Games"..I waited until all the credits where shown so I could find the name of the song...Jeniffer Lawrence sings it in the movie...it starts slow then builds to the music score takes over and because it is so repetitive I tried to do the same with my version...it will go on a cover song cd I hope soon.
So thank you for your review and look her up and give a listen to the original if you have tome...In music Delta
Thanks for that Delta its a really good song - and you've added something definitely !
Laurence --just by chance I visited your page and actually did a full listen to your song list. Wow I'm so glad I did. I love what you're doing with mood, lyrics, and guitar sound. You are a real artist. ~Jeff
Thanks very much for such nice words !
Love Dead Moon by the way !
Hi Laurence, Man I love the guitar sounds on Where's She Gonna Go? Love the song too. How did I miss hearing this before? ~Jeff
Big thanks again for that. Its actually just about my favourite song of mine and really captured what I wanted it to in sound and words which doesn't happen much of the time.
Thanks for your review of Time To Think. You've got some very original sounding tracks on here and some very cool guitar playing. good luck.
Thanks very much. Been away for a while but coming back over the next 12 months.
I enjoyed your track and good luck to you also !
Searching for a song.
I'm searching for this song: I do not know her name. I do not know the author of it. I just know that it is a music - copyright free. I would like to get this instrumental music - no voice - You know, can you help me? If you know it, let me know, and if you can tell me the name or a link.

Thank you very much for your help.
A big hug.

Only you can help me, Sir. Laurence. Please.
Hi Laurence - A belated thanks for your very nice review of "Help Me Doctor".
Awesome and great
Thank you for your guarded, not completely negative review of Night Noises. I wrote it as a poem, not as a song. Dave Lefever set it to music. Think Gothic novels, Bronté sisters etc. You might like other songs of mine better.
Best from Birthe
Thanks for your review of "Pretty Girl On A Train."
Will try to do better next time.
Thanks for your positive review of The Like.
All the best,
Good work Ian,
Thanks for liking my song laurence. Mrs Kate bifocal blues
Great work....loved it !
I just wanted to thank for the review of "Your Call"
really through and helpful.
Still digging your tunes !
Time - very interesting song - very! It stays with you. A Danish poet, Benny Andersen, wrote a poem about time, I think you would enjoy it: same theme, different words, same take, very good. Web translation can be found. Even mine if you google the poem & poet.
Best from birthe
Many thanks glad you enjoyed it.
I'm off to google the poem and poet !
Laurence, Thank you for my review of Blue Stone Mt. you had kind words for me
My pleasure Delta,
Keep the songs coming !
Thanks for such a great review of The Elephant In The Room.
Love your track Evelyn best song I've heard on Broadjam for a long time.
Keep the songs coming.
I was just looking around and I found your song "Harriet".......loved it.....great work....
Thank you, Laurence! So nice of you to comment!
Love your music!Your vocals are awesome.
Thank you so much, Cindy!
hey Laurence, nice to meet you, and thank you for your kind review of Just An Accident, much appreciated! cheers, Warren Hein
Great work Warren.....loved the track !
Laurence. Thank you for your review of 'Starlight'
Your comments are really appreciated.
Thanks for the very nice review of the "SOLO" version of my song .... "Sunday Morning". There is a full-up version at my BJ site.... Just look for the song, "Sunday Morning".
Indeed, I have had many a beautiful Sunday morning in my life. Most of them with my beautiful wife.
I did have a funny response from one of my long-time producers who HATED this song, because it reminded him how lonely he was. Pretty funny. I told him to loosen his grip on life and let it flow through his fingers...
Anyway, glad you liked it and a nice review it extra nice coming from you.
By the way, stop by and listen to some of my acoustic guitar based new album, "Beetles Are Coming".... Great acoustic work if you like that sort of thing. Here is a little taste.
My pleasure you are one of my favourites on Broadjam.....
"Beetles are Coming".......I'll be with them !
Laurence That Girl is freakin' great man!! And I disagree with Doug's review--I think the distorted vocal on the left is just what it needs (maybe panned a bit more to center). The mood is just killer!! ~Jeff
Wow Thanks Jeff,
Thanks for your review of my demo 'I Can't Lose" There is a fully produced cut of this same song recorded in the early 90's please go have a listen and tell me what you think.
thanks again for the view,you ended hearing both of my instrumentals
I listened to the rest of your tunes and that's all real solid Teach. You gotta keep that up.
Peace and tons of it,
Thanks for such a great review of "Fashionista." Bit of an experiment as its not my natural genre !
Keep the songs coming !
Thanks for taking the time to review my song Checkers. I enjoyed listening to your song Whose Blues?
Rock on and often!
Hi Laurence, Thanks for your review of Lullaby Close By. I enjoyed your Whose Blues, by the way. Plenty of bounce to the ounce. Cheers, Ian
Keep the songs coming !
Hey I wondered if it was *that* Laurence!! Good to see / hear your work again.
What a superb critique of "Your Call."
Your commentary is much appreciated and I'll definitely try to learn from it.
Thanks and all the very best
Hi Laurence - sorry you get nothing but a blank page on my end. I'm new to the site, and since I'm having troubles getting my songs uploaded, I thought I'd do something to get involved in the Broadjam community. You can probably tell I come from a poetry background. My one comment about the single line in the chorus not repeating should have said if you need more real estate, don't repeat. Repeating works well too. Of course, it's all Your Call :) and it is in great hands - I totally admire what you do musically!
Again your commentary is so very appreciated.
I look forward to your music coming through to us all at Broadjam.
You of course will have "your Call..."....
Many thanks for your five stars for "Light of Night". Much appreciated - as was your set at The Top last Saturday.
It's a great song - especially love the lyrics.
TY so much for the abfab review of Half-Broken Heart! Hope out was playlist-worthty! :) ~GP
Great work bro.....keep the songs coming......!
Thanx for the 5-Star!
Have no idea why I gave arrangement a 4......the song and everything about is 5 all the way through......
No prob! Plz check out Eternity if you haven't , written for my wife! :)
Fell upon some new work by you...always good.
In my humble opinion "Just Like Me' is your best ever song......Loved it......absolutely beautiful......
Keep the great work coming !
Thanks Mate, glad you enjoyed it. It's sort of my life to date....if that doesn't sound to pretentious. Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you but I've been out of the country for a bit.
