  1. Hello, I recorded this song last week at a friends house. I am looking to see what people think. This is a song about my life living in Canada's North, Rankin Inlet, Nunavut. It's a hard place to live. Where do the Cold Winds Blow? Where do the cold winds blow when they've got no home Where do the cold winds blow when they've got no home I don't think I want to know I just don't think I want to know Where did my little buddy go Don't anybody know Where did our little buddy go Don't anybody know I don't think I want to know I don't think I'm strong enough to know I need to believe that their better I need to believe that they are free and I need to believe that their better better and free Where do the angels go before their halo's grow Where do the angels go before their halo's grow I don't think that I'm meant to know I don't think that we are meant to know but I need to believe that their better I need to believe that they are free and I need to believe that their better better and free Where do the colds winds blow when they've got no home.
  2. Hi there,I wanted to share with you this acoustic cover I made of the song Kids aren't Allright.Please excuse if there are some mistakes with my pronunciation as english is not my native language.I hope you'll enjoy it anyway
  3. Hey guys, I've had this song idea cooking for many years now. Never did anything with it, but it'd be cool to finally get some feedback on what kind of direction it should go in. I think it has some potential. Thoughts?
  4. Based on previous feedback, there were 2 lines that I wanted to change and improve. I've highlighted them below. 'Invoking need in me' has been replaced by 'Seducing my need', and 'Goosebumps I'm feeling' has been replaced by 'Reaching out to her'. Hopefully better and replaced the Yoda speak it has? Lady of the Lake (Verse 1) She walks on the water She kisses the stars As light as a moonbeam As far away as Mars, Driving me crazy Mind breaking apart Lady of the lake I watch you from afar. (Pre Chorus) I am lonely Love's lonely tonight Lady I need you To make it alright (Chorus) Lady of the lake Lady of the lake … (Verse 2) She calls to the song birds She rustles the reeds As soft as a feather Seducing my need Days slow and lazy Shadows at water's edge Lady of the lake In a pale blue misty dress (Pre Chorus) I am lonely Love's lonely tonight Lady I need you To make it alright (Chorus) Lady of the lake Lady of the lake … (Bridge) Slowly she dissolves Rain drops that fall Auburn leaves swirling Under the embrace of bending trees Slowly I resolve To heed her call Reaching out to her As she wraps herself around me. (Pre Chorus) I am lonely Love's lonely tonight Lady I need you To make it alright (Chorus) Lady of the lake … Lady of the lake Lady of the lake … You give and you take Lady of the lake … Lady of the lake Lady of the lake … Always the spell must break This is a lyric I've been working on this week. I see it as a folk song that would be accompanied mainly by acoustic guitar. Lady of the Lake (Verse 1) She walks on the water She kisses the stars As light as a moonbeam As far away as Mars, Driving me crazy Mind breaking apart Lady of the lake I watch you from afar. (Pre Chorus) I am lonely Love's lonely tonight Lady I need you To make it alright (Chorus) Lady of the lake Lady of the lake … (Verse 2) She calls to the song birds She rustles the reeds As soft as a feather Invoking need in me Days slow and lazy Shadows at water's edge Lady of the lake In a pale blue misty dress (Pre Chorus) I am lonely Love's lonely tonight Lady I need you To make it alright (Chorus) Lady of the lake Lady of the lake … (Bridge) Slowly she dissolves Rain drops that fall Auburn leaves swirling Under the embrace of bending trees Slowly I resolve To heed her call Goosebumps I'm feeling As she wraps herself around me. (Pre Chorus) I am lonely Love's lonely tonight Lady I need you To make it alright (Chorus) Lady of the lake … Lady of the lake Lady of the lake … You give and you take Lady of the lake … Lady of the lake Lady of the lake … Always the spell must break

    Been a while since I've posted. I've been recording some cover tunes, but this is the first original I've done in some time. This is a tune I recorded a few days ago about the pitfalls for artists in the entertainment industry. I'm aware that it's rough, more of a sketch. The guitar and vox were also recorded through a single mic on the same track, and I know the standard is to have the vox on a seperate track for post. I'd especially love to hear your suggestions on how I could make this style of music (acoustic singer-songwriter) sound as professional and polished as possible in a home studio. So, any guidance when it comes to mics, DAW, software, other equipment, etc. would be much appreciated. Thanks for listening and your thoughts.

Lyrics: Flower & the honey-bee Flower & the honey-bee Bitter mirror Shows ten years gone Then fifteen You're no teen Their success is mean, baby You're lean, baby Feeling stagnant Stuck Outta luck And charlatan time To steal your dime And worse The dream, baby Your dream, baby Yeah, you was used But in the end It's on you, son You was abused But in the end You knew, but wouldn't bend You saw, but didn't run Desperate vampires Palms up Smiling Praise on Prey on To drain on Lay claim on Your heart That genesis place Of pure and rush Of chills when you blush And after your can Of ¿you-who? is crushed Then what? Yeah, you was used But in the end It's on you, son You was abused But in the end Mama said what makes a friend But the monkey weighed a ton
  7. Check this out. Just an idea right now. I've been running from all that I have doneAll I see is what I have becomeWhat I said it wasn't meant for youIf I knew I wouldn't have done it to youYou could see me all the way right through I would be there right in front of you
  8. Hey! Here's another short one I was working on the other day. What do you think? We are free We can be Was it just a dream It isn't what it seemed Can't you see
  9. Hey guys, Aster and Ivy here again with a demo of our song "Heavy Hearted". We found a bassist after we recorded this and are still actively looking for a drummer (that is why those instruments have been missing from our songs thus far). With that said, we would love to get feedback from you guys on the layout of the song, lyrics, etc. Even comments on the mix would be helpful too since we do the recording, mixing, and mastering ourselves for all of our demos. Sorry some of the video doesn't match with the audio, we have to overdub it because we record audio first then record video so we have a visual release as well (we were on a time crunch so we made due lol). Thanks! Lyrics: I know you weren't fond of waiting As time passed you by, it weighed heavy on your mind Your dreary heart grew faint and fading As mine grew stronger, thinking you were fine It weighed heavy on my mind It weighed heavy on our minds I know you were heavy hearted I know you're just thinking of yourself know you were heavy hearted I know you're just thinking of yourself Thinking of yourself Thinking of yourself Let us begin anew I'll take my strides away from you We'll walk our paths in different directions And you'll think clearly once again I know you were heavy hearted I know you're just thinking of yourself know you were heavy hearted I know you're just thinking of yourself Thinking of yourself Thinking of yourself Thinking of yourself Oooh's Copyright, 2017 If you want to follow us in our journey you can find us on these platforms: Subscribe on YouTube ► https://www.youtube.com/asterandivy Follow our Soundcloud ► https://soundcloud.com/user-968998146 Follow our Instagram ► https://www.instagram.com/asterandivy_official/ Like me on Facebook ► https://www.facebook.com/RealAsterandIvy/ Follow us on Twitter ► https://twitter.com/AsterAndIvy Want to be a part of the release of our upcoming EP?

  10. Hey! Here's one that I was liking. I'm working on another verse and a break but what do you think? Thanks! 2 versions:
  11. This is an older song. It's vulnerable, which is different for me. I realize it expresses emotions very few people would relate to. Any feedback is appreciated. I am wondering what goes through your head listening or reading the lyrics even if you don't relate, so feel free to share. Do you think it's overly emotional? Do you think it is a good song? Lyrically & Musically? What can make it good/better? What works well? Do certain lines stand out in a good way? Do certain parts stand out in a good way (to your ears)? What doesn't work? Any suggestions to fix it? It has a weird structure. To a listener, is that bad or does it work? Soundcloud Link: Youtube Link: Lyrics I know I'm nothing to you I know I don't deserve your help but when I stand in front of you it's the only time I don't feel hell I don't deserve your concern but if you saw the blades in my veins the cries I hold in the only dream where I win if you saw the blades in my veins would you offer to help? if you saw the knives in my heart that rip my soul apart they only go deeper and the climb grows steeper if you saw the knives in my heart would you think it's fair? would you even care? and would you offer to help? if you saw the hatred that's burning my mind red if you saw the holes all around my soul if you saw the hatred would you think it's fair? would you even care? and would you offer to help? you see I only exist when you speak to me though I clenched my fists and fought hart to be free but the light passes through as if there is nothing there though a knife goes right into this ghostly body of air will you change my end? and lend me your hand? do you think it's fair? do you even care? and will you offer to help?

    "For You"

    This is one I've been working on. What do you think?
  13. Here's another one. This is from a bit ago so my vocals aren't as strong as they are now but I've always liked the idea. Lyrics: Seems I've been waiting for Seems I've been waiting for Just tell me no Just tell me no You never know when I'm running You never know when I'll be gone When I'm gone When I'm gone
  14. My entry for the August competition. All feedback welcome! Wasting My Time Stop wasting my time! You'd better look me in the eye, and tell me where you were last night, Don't give me the lies, I've heard ten times before, You say 'everything's fine, this life is for living', I know you're wasting my time once again. Stop wasting my time! You promise the earth, But I get nothing, Makes me question my worth and my sanity, You say 'everything's fine, we're just taking it easy,' I know you're wasting my time once again. Stop wasting my time! I want to forget you, I try to abstain, But I'm hooked on the feeling, It drives me insane! God knows what you're thinking, Don't tell me that everything's fine, Are you wasting my time? You're wasting my time. You're wasting my time You're wasting my time, You're wasting my time once again. Stop wasting my time!
  15. Hey everyone, it's Aster and Ivy again! Looking for some feedback on our demo of "Stay Calm". We will likely use very light brush drumming instead of the shaker on the actual recording as well as maybe double track the ukulele and make the "ooohs" more reverberated. Who knows aha! This is where you guys come in! Let us know if there is anything we need to change as far as lyrics or song structure is concerned. Thank you so much, we look forward to hearing from you all! Disclaimer: I mixed the lyrics up on accident during recording, but the ones I'm posting are what they will actually be. Lyrics: We are the ones who lay in bed And ask the questions left unsaid Oh, living, what does it mean?? I must admit, it scares me to death Oooh's We are the ones who crawl in bed And listen to music with our friends Oh, the lyrics, what do they mean? I must admit, they confuse me to death Oooh's We are the ones who hide in bed In fear for what could happen next Oh, we shiver in our boots But I stay calm, when I think of you Oooh's Copyright, 2016 If you want to follow us in our journey you can find us on these platforms: Subscribe on YouTube ► https://www.youtube.com/asterandivy Follow our Soundcloud ► https://soundcloud.com/user-968998146 Follow our Instagram ► https://www.instagram.com/asterandivy_official/ Like me on Facebook ► https://www.facebook.com/RealAsterandIvy/ Follow us on Twitter ► https://twitter.com/AsterAndIvy Want to be a part of the release of our upcoming EP?

  16. I would love feedback on how I might make this song better! This is a rough home demo recording, so not too concerned about production at this stage. Thanks, Dan
  17. Hey! Here's a new one. Was messing around with my own tuning here. I think it's a variation on dropped A or something. Anyway...hope you like it! I'm waiting for you What can I do I'm here for you If you only knew And I made up my mind It's our time
  18. Hello everyone we just released this new song and video. I hope you will take the time to give it a look and a listen. Let me know what you think?
  19. Any feedback is welcome. Also, if you can tell me: Do you think it is a good song? Lyrically & Musically? What can make it good/better? What works well? Do certain lines stand out in a good way? Do certain parts stand out in a good way (to your ears)? What doesn't work? Any suggestions to fix it? Lyrics: I had a dream you were listening to me singing my song guitar in hand I was playing a song about how it all went wrong you were listening to every word I had to say about my pain and my world and the price that I pay (Chorus) I wanted you to see some of the blood that I bled because maybe then you'd care about every word that I said so I tried to paint it right right in front of your eyes show I held on tight before it all died because maybe I am broken and have been for years but now that I've spoken maybe it is clear (Chorus) but I woke up realized you never heard a word to you I'm just another broken broken winged bird now I watch from down here the life I cannot reach and I think about that dream that dream by the beach and I must confess now I long for your attentive eyes but I know that death is closer than that blue in my skies (Chorus) I had a dream you were listening to me singing my song guitar in hand I was playing a song about how it all went wrong
  20. Hello This is a sad song. I do believe sad songs usually need a little bit of light, but I'm not sure all of them need it. It's just me and a guitar. I would like detailed critique, if possible, just general opinions, if not. But please mention the good as well as what needs work, because I can't be 100% sure if there is anything special to this song, just based on my opinion. Please, tell me: Does the emotion come across? Lyrically & musically? Is it too depressing, and would drive a listener away? General opinion, is it any good? Is it powerful? What works for it? Is it an "open mic night" level song & performance? Or is it better than open mic, or worse? What doesn't work for it? Which parts are the bad parts? Any pointers? Is the structure alright, or does it need changing? If it does, any suggestions? Here's the youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjZTwcpKtw4 Or you could listen to it on soundcloud: Lyrics: I've got a burning souland the truth isI am all alonealone in thisI asked for help, it's overratedthey're lies they sell, & I hate itjust take this pill, & you'll sedate itbut I'm still numb, & suicidal & it's the sun, & my idolsno where to run, it is finalI've got a burning souland the truth isI am all alone alone in thisit's flooding up, with me in a cornerI can't keep up, & I built these bordersthe gates are shut, & they're my ordersbut I will not speak, & bare my soulit's mine to keep, so back away from the wallI've declared defeat, & I'll silently crawleveryday I rise, it all gets dullerI close my eyes, try to remember colorsso I lay to die, with no friend or a brother& I was borndestined for thisa wall of thornsthe dark of the abyssno crown or no throneno star to missa wall around homeif that's what it is& I am all alonealone in this
  21. Since I'm new around here, I thought I should at least share something. This is a lyric inspired by one of my favorite people. Sing Me A Smile V1 Up there on the Stage Under the soft Lights' glow Through the Noise of the crowd his Music fills my Soul Heals & makes Me Whole And he (Chorus) Sings me tears of joy Eases my pain His Song offers a sweet His song offers a sweet embrace he sings me a smile Sing me a smile V2 The dam breaks in my mind words start to flow like a waterfall the raging storm fades away In the clearing I see The strength to chase My Dreams Because He (Chorus) Sings me tears of joy Eases my pain His Song offers a sweet His song offers a sweet embrace he sings me a smile Sing me a smile V3 Picked up my guitar Workin out a little tune Gonna try and spark the flame Of passion and desire An pass it on to you An' I will (Chorus) Sing you tears of joy try to ease your pain Offer you a sweet Offer you a sweet embrace And sing you a smile Sing you a smile (bridge) Can a whisper in thin air tell us who we're meant to be? Can the secret of a song set a frozen heart free? Mountains of worry Dark clouds of fear One song comes along and makes 'em all disappear because He (Chorus) Sings me tears of joy Eases my pain His Song offers a sweet His song offers a sweet embrace he sings me a smile Sing me a smile
  22. Kinda like this one. Still unresolved but like where it's going. Moon shown through They made way for you I'll be gone I'll be gone What I said It wasn't meant For you If I knew I wouldn't have done it To you I was such a fool I was such a fool You could see me All the way Right through I would be there Right in front of you
  23. I would be grateful for feedback on my song 'Tables Turn', and any suggestions for making it better. The song is all about bitter break-up blues! This is a rough home demo, so I'm not particularly worried about the production quality at this stage. Thanks for listening! I think about that night we spoke,the lies you told,the vows you broke, and I miss you even less than before.I think about the acid tears,the broken hearts,the wasted years,and I miss you even less than before.Don't want to talk,but soon you'll know just how I feel.Tables turn on you now,these things workout somehow,tables turn on you.I think about the old routines,the future lost,the shattered dreams,and I miss you even less than before.I think about when we still cared,the fun we had,the love we shared,and I miss you, yeah I miss you.Don't want to talk,but soon you'll know just how I feel.Tables turn on you now,these things workout somehow,tables turn on you.(c) 2017
  24. I wrote this a while ago but tweaked it and recorded it early this morning. Sun rise if my favorite time to write music Early in the morning Save me when I sleep Early in the morning Save me when I sleep She says she knows me Same things that we keep Same things that we keep You got to save me when I sleep You got to save me when I sleep
  25. I'm a singer songwriter from New Zealand and thought I'd put this demo up for a bit of feedback before my producer and I flesh it out...tell me what you think!
