Please listen to my new song
« on: Tue Dec 11, 2012 - 20:41:29 »
I've always loved music. I am a stay at home mom of two boys---21 months and 3 months. My husband has been encouraging me to do what I love. So... I wrote and recorded a few songs. I hope they

You have a beautiful voice, but in all honesty the person doing the mixing missed the mark......watever that clapping sound is was far too close to the live mike........and it really took away from your performance.......have them remix it, and feature your voice with the clapping or whatever it is muted...and it would be really good............I'd buy it......but not like it is.......

Do not mean to hurt your feelings whatsoever........

Would like to hear more of your songs........

I appreciate the feedback. I actually purchased the beat online and you can't edit the music. Do you know of any other resources to get original instrumental music? I would rather have live instruments, but I don't have the money or know many people who play.

Not really, at least none that might assist you............although, if you have a home church, and they have a good music leader, and sound/recording equipment, they may be willing to assist you.

Other than that, you may have to just work at getting a producer to listen to your work and hope they decide to take you on as a project.........I think your voice is as good as I hear on any of those talent shows on TV, so - who knows?

Thank you! I'm super late.... busy with my boys. I know you mentioned the mixing. How do you know if the mixing is good or not?

The best way to know if a "mix" is good is finding one that complements your voice, and not replacing it.  In other words, the music should complement your voice, not be the "main attraction."  Does that make sense to you?  It's trial and error I suppose, finding the right mix that is, but a good Music Leader will know how to properly blend the music to compliment your voice without drowning it out.

Good luck.........

modified to add:  In my opinion, you would be better served with an Acapella demo than one with a bad mix such as the one you posted here........in that way, those listening will appreciate your talent, and know how to set it to the proper mix of music.

If you have between $200 and $300, or if you can save up that much, there is some very reputable recording/mixing software you can buy.  I use a program called "Studio One" the artist version.  It is very good.  It also has a library of instruments to use.  It takes some time to learn the program, but if you have the time and patience, it is well worth the money.

I love the song's rhythm and words. I figured that it could only be a "rough draft" for a young house wife/mother/homemaker and tried to"listen" past that. I think that for church and such your voice would be a great addition in worship but for out in the market I personally think, and it may be the mic, I don't know, that your voice lacks the resonance (over and under tones in vocal frequencies which give depth and fullness) which one finds in a professional voice. That having been said, terribly sounding voices full of dry rasping sounds (heavy smokers?) and others making noises like they are singing out of their nose have become quite popular among certain groups of listeners such as: the country singer who sang "The Gambler" and "Coward of the Country" or  the long woman-like blonde haired guy (from England?) who had a twisted nose and wore  REAL tight pants and the women loved him (one of his songs sounded like he was taking advantage of and making love to a young girl and all the while he decries his guilt-they still play it today) or the ""star"" and singer on Thunderdome (TT) or Willie Nelson or Merle Haggard. They all made it big but I personally think that they sucked as I don't listen to anything more than vocal quality and to me that means depth and fullness and particulars of voice and clarity of pronunciation. A few good voices to me are Whitney Houston, BeBe and CeCe Winans, Larnelle Harris, Mirah Carey, Lou Rawls, Lionel Richie, Peaches and Herb, and Barry White.

I forgot to say this: your voice is beautiful, really. I can understand how your husband feels and I only said what I did about resonance because I took it that you were sort of auditioning for record production/pro type stuff. And I think I made an error about Merle Haggard, after I thought about him last night, I think he had great resonance. What I didn't like about him is that he had the distortion and staggering and slurring in his voice as if he was going to fall out dead drunk the nemt second.
