    Hey Joe…I like your song. good mix. I like that funk and rhythm and blues mix. I like the bass and guitar also. the tune is very catchy but sounds like something I’ve heard before but, a lot of songs remind me of other songs. you’re vocals are pretty tight too. the lyrics although not outstanding are pretty good. overall good job. welcome to the sight…Toney

    Hey there,

    The song isn’t bad. I like the strat especially. The whole thing is pretty funky in a great way. I feel like the vocalist sounds a bit unconvincing. Don’t get me wrong, the performance is on. I just feel like the quality of the voice is kinda too nerdy or something. Thats just what I got from it after a couple of listens. The band is tearing it up. The structure is fine for a bar song. Thats all the feedback I can think of.

      Thanks Danny! I am not an accomplished singer and have been looking for someone to be my voice. I appreciate your positive remarks. And the part about my voice being nerdy made me chuckle.

    Keeping it real here bro, that was painful. It’s a pet peeve of mine to listen to someone who’s trying to sing the blues without ever experiencing the blues. Plus, I don’t get what these other listeners are calling funk? You couldn’t be more Caucasian. Songwriting wise, I’m not impressed. The hooks and lyrics are dull and non-engaging. There’s zero originality with guitar riffs that have been used and abused for decades. Performance wise, the vocals sound like you just got back from a vasectomy. No drive or punch. I guess you did a good job programming the drum machine. Now production wise it “sounds” great. Maybe you should stay behind the board and let the songwriters/musicians do the real work.

    I think this would be a killer mix with a different vocal style/delivery! Needs a little edge. Vocal harmonies are well positioned but seem a little out of tune. The guitar licks throughout are great! Overall, I like the sound of the mix. Maybe try dropping your vocal down an octive in the verses for some variety and have Toney growl in the harmonies to give it some depth! Great effort! Welcome to the site and keep me coming’! Bob
