"SOUNDOUT - Individual song for A DIFFERENT MOON"


- Great opening! The guitar sets a perfect mood with a great voice which pair with the sounds coming from well played instruments. This has a nice feel from the beginning.

- The melodies are tuneful, especially the sound of the guitar playing which has the right emotion and a good execution considering the genre. The quality of the interpretation gives it a resemblance to some classic songs.

- The melody is simple just like the song. I love it. It has a nice sentiment & a nice beat to it. I absolutely love it and would not mind hearing more.

- I feel I would listen to a song like this on my way to work because it's more of a motivating type song that I feel I can connect to. -

"SOUNDOUT - Individual song review for ON THE RAILS"

Reviews for ON THE RAILS:

- The rhythm is very interesting. I love your guitar stumming. It sounds like a train on the tracks, your intention I am sure, because it suits the lyrics of the song "On the rails i found God" feels like your taking me on a journey when you put the rhythm and the lyrics together - great musical intelligence I must say.

- Great intro for a great song along with wonderful vocals. Delightful lyrics to go along with a great melody and beat. Vocals are wonderful and it's a fun and inspirational piece of music.

- Exactly the kind of music that is starting to breakthrough into the popular music scene lead by bands such as Mumford And Sons. Folk is becoming very popular with nice pure vocals. The song is one in touch with its roots.

- This song is very Bob Dylan sounding - from the voice down to the song composition. This song has great organization. It starts off great, and throughout the progression of the song, escalates almost unnoticeably in energy. His lyrics are well-written. I don't see this song having any commercial success, merely because of the times, but I think it can and will do well in the underground folk/indie scene. -
