"Licencing for Indie Short Film"

Thanks for your submitting 'See-Saw Love'. We enjoyed listening to your music. It was strong and interesting and well recorded. Unfortunately we could only choose one song this time around, but we will keep your name on file and if anything appropriate comes up we will contact you. Keep writing! Thanks The Team at Between Worlds

"SongReview: 'See-Saw Love'"

Well recorded, well presented, well delivered .. . .and different in style ! This song is a little bit leaning towards documentary style, or maybe a film, but not of the level that would tear the charts apart. Name of Judge : E Lee

"Civil War Theme & Americana Music Compilation"

Cheryl: I've enjoyed listening to 'Your Life...'. It has a nice feel and conviction about it. The vocal delivery fits the lyrics and the mood of the song. Great characterization. its very soothing and your voice has a great tone. I enjoyed the other songs of yours I listened to as well. Nice ending. As good as it is; I don't feel it will fit this collection. Please keep me posted if you see me post for anything else. Thank you very much for sending this up. Dave/ Crescent Music and Media

"Hurricane - Review"

"I have truly enjoyed listening to all of your music. You have a very unique sound. However, there is one song in particular which stood out for me.
The song I'm referring to is 'Hurricane'. This is a beautifully written piece. Your choice of acoustic instrumentation fits this emotionally driven song perfectly. Your vocals are clear and full with a very sincere and graceful style. The melody is slow and somber heightening the overall mood behind your text. As I said, I truly enjoyed listening to all of your music, but 'Hurricane' was my favorite. With the right marketing, you should expect a lot from this piece. Nicely done!" - Song Of The Year Contest

Bio

"Art trained, Cheryl Hillier has a real talent for composition, where colour, shape, texture, emotion, sound and soul dance together, and words speak powerfully"
As a child, my father taught me piano, but he left; in the vacuum that followed grew a great many compositions; healing for me, and helping me to understand and make sense of things. One Christmas I begged for a guitar, and I've never stopped playing or writing since.
I find clarity in songwriting; things get sorted out. Words/ideas 'pop' out from the subconscious; and in the cold light of day, they often, oddly, seem to make alot of sense.
I have wondered... if these thoughts are placed by people who care, but are lost... that I may be channelling in some way... perhaps it is just that I am listening.
