The initial response from this 3-song demo
is…wow! Listen to that compression! Then I started to notice,
oh, the music? It’s actually very well done! Lose the compression,
have it mastered at a very expensive place, get a good cover
and manufacturing job on you demo, and you should be shopping
labels! I have to compare, though…I hear the Wallflowers.
Don’t you? That’s a good thing in my book.
The guitars are very solid! I like the blend of organ, acoustic
guitar, and the wall of vocals on the chorus of “Still” (but
they get buried in the compression). I personally like the
mix on the drums, too. So, do you see a trend? For those
of you reading this, I would recommend trying to find this
guy and get a copy of this music. It’s all radio hits! It
sounds like it’s on a pop top-40 radio station cause of the
compression. Dude, I dig it!
