I can really catch the beat on this song! I love the introduction. The artist is incredible and her tone is just amazing. The song is not coarse or dull. Its very catchy. It makes me want to dance. The tone is very mellow and warm. The structure of the song is also very well balanced. The dynamics of the song is the perfect balance of powerful. Its not too strong, it’s just perfect!

“Wow! This jazzy intro is really great! And the bass line is super catchy. I’m really feeling a throwback vibe, which is awesome and hard to truly capture in today’s society! Nice work on the overall feel! Even the lyrics are reminiscent of “old school” jazz/funk and are really appropriate for the style. All voices are perfectly on pitch and jive well together. Blending is good. All instrumental solos and interludes are so much fun. I’d come to your concert.”

December 31, 2013 crowd review of “Drive In’ – Reverbnation
“The drum, bass and guitar is great, like James Brown’s band. I like the way the voice goes into the high register. This is authentic funky soul music. The echo on the voice is appreciated. She’s saying “you can be my popcorn man at the drive in.” It’s great nostalgia. She’s talking about the Drive In Movies, for all of you who may not understand. It’s a live recording, as you can hear people applauding.”

“Potent song. The singing has an outstanding unity. The absolutely brisk percussion strategy maintained by the track was fun with its nifty, abstract contrast. The phrasing of this track was wonderful and the mellowness of the rhythm was remarkably rugged and dynamic. The action of the interlude was remarkable and the inspirational approach used by this song was great. The rhythm grows gracefully and the tune is really solidly exceptional. It was both otherworldly and original and the song had a very refined synth approach. A contemplative song that has good introspection.”

December 31, 2013 crowd review of “The First Time I Saw You Baby –
“The lyrics to the song were quite original and thought-provoking. The lead vocal singer had a powerful voice that really delivered. The lyrics to the song were punchy and gave meaning to the overall song. The instrumental was beautifully played and the song is ready for mainstream media.”

December 31, 2013 crowd review of “Letter to the President” – Reverbnation
