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!

Favorite Track: 2, “Martyr Love”
