  1. June 1+1 COMPLETE!

    Drats I missed this contest. i wouldn't have entered, but more to be a non contestant judge. first i missed. guess i have to mark calendars or something Nice job all!! Congrats Ryan and Steve. Truly great songs! Steve / Wendy / Alistair I connected the most with but all were very strong with a nice diversity across the board! ps: Lyd, pretty sure someone broke 8 earlier this year, just sayin
  2. May song comp

    Hail to the queen, Wendy! Congrats!!!! I've seen you make a few comments in the past about feeling like you don't belong in this elite group of songwriters and I felt like you really believed that. Hopefully now you will put an end to such tomfoolery! No surprise Scenes from Palacio was right there too but I'm amazed Zeligovich once again didn't score higher.
  3. One new piece of gear....

    Damn that is one sexy keyboard. It's so inviting. Congrats

  5. April 1+1 COMPLETE!

    Congrats Sarah and Jason. Great songs! For my taste I had Alistair as my top score, really enjoyed that one.
  6. March Song Comp

    I agree Palacio. I gave her a good score and was shocked to see the numbers. it's the type of music I'd hope my grandma would play if she were a musician. Sweet and optimistic. Norman Rockwell-esque. And it would fit perfectly in the right film. Different strokes i guess

  8. Thanks for the great compliment Z. I usually don't state scores I give but in this last contest you were my 10, and u also got my 10 in the last 1+1 with spacetrip. I really like your bands style. Serious musicianship that doesn't take themselves too seriously is a rare combination. you guys have fun, i love it. brilliant transitions. keep it up

  9. Thanks Mark, I appreciate the comments. Especially since you usually own the winner's circle :)

  10. March Song Comp

    Wow, thanks everyone!! And for the kind words too. I had an unusually bad day so what a cool surprise. I did not think I had a solid shot to win. And by vote of other musicians you respect is a great honor. Gratzi! La ringrazio grandi musicisti! There wasn't a bad song in the lot/i gave no low number scores and the best part was the overall diversity. This contest imo would have been a great compilation cd! PS: Congrats somefellow, it was cool to co-win with a song on that level. It has everything you look for in a song and the execution of it was as brilliant as the writing. Thanks again, I'm feeling very motivated which is something I need these days
  11. couldn't find "8mm" or "fourtrack." Damned android phone!! :) I was on iphone but wanted something different so went the android route.

    Better Words/Music by Chaplin Gean long, long time ago never had to worry bout a thing lights on, but no one knows if you're home and life goes on... you know i'd love to help you out but i'm kinda stuck right now... everyone's so fragile and they don't know how Life's alright for now But when it's said and done will you be loved? Will you belong? Used to be when people felt beat down they'd light a fire To some happy sounds And they'd feel better You don't even have to lie I've been where you are now So reboot so we all can feel better --guitar melody break-- Some hold out for things they cannot be It's better chasing tails than chasing trees Break if somebody wants to play Soon you're feeling fine I don't really need to know how everything will go Just give me what i get Used to be when people felt beat down they'd light a fire To some happy sounds And they'd feel better You don't even have to lie I've been where you are now So reboot so we all can feel better --56k piano break-- I want to, heaven knows I'd love to, heaven knows It'd be so nice to be Always on Used to be when people felt beat down they'd light a fire To some happy sounds...
  13. FLEM! especially if you smoke. even if not your throat passages have been lying dormant all night and need their wakey time too sometimes someone will call and i don't want them to know I've been sleeping (like my boss) so i'll really go out of my way to bring energy into my voice and it never works. "what are you, sleepin'?" uhhhh... talking/singing, always sounds bad in the morning, just how it is
  14. February 1+1 Comp RESULTS!

    Nice job musicians
