"I AM LOVED BY YOU" has been chosen as the soundtrack for the HBO Family 2012 Summer Image Promotional Campaign. - JD Southard


JiCE - Record Producer at Sizzle Records writes:

"You have a beautiful voice and the songs you wrote speak to the listener and tell a wonderful story. I particularly like the third track "Paper Bags", your intonation and delivery remind me a great deal of Dolores O'Riordan, the lead singer of The Cranberries. I enjoyed the CD and will try to get it into the right hands.


All my best,


JiCE" - JiCE- Record Producer Sizzle Records


"Binary Girl" is catchy!...Good luck in getting the music out there.
Cheers,

"Go On Without Me" has been placed with an Internet Company for marketing purposes. Please contact the artist for more details.
Thank you. - JD Southard


"Binary Girl" has been selected as the final cut on Compilation CD for the Singer-Songwriter Cape May 2009. JD is also Showcasing there in March 2009. - SS Cape May 2009


A very enjoyable selection of songs that stay with you long after you've listened to them. JD sings with feeling and the lyrics reach into your heart. The production is first-rate and reminds me of the incredible "clean" mixes of bands like Dire Straits. The melodies are well thought-out and are in the classic rock/acoustic style. I like this disc.

Excerpt review gig at "Groovin' in New Fairfield" April 2009-

"J.D. Southard, out of Greenwich, gave us acoustic renditions of her ‘alternative pop’ songwriting. One could detect nuances of Suzan Vega, Aimee Mann, and Chrissie Hynde." - Groovin' in New Fairfield


LONDON BABY!!!!
Current mood: Inspired

Ok, so here’s the run down, on the fun down, in Lon-don!

But you want to hear about the GIGS. Well, the music scene there is definitely happening. I played a gig at The QUEEN BOADECIA’s at the tube stop "Angel" which is a nice omen I think.

I was very well received such that the waiting staff in the restaurant adjacent to the bar were peaking in as soon as my voice sounded and the audience did not say a WORD while I was playing. I of course ATE it up and performed probably the BEST ever. You have to take those moments when they come to you and just relax into it and BE what you want to BE. I pontificate but really - don’t listen to me.

I also met with some Industry folks in the toney brownstone along the park which is the London Headquarters of BMI. Yes, they are the representatives for almost every famous act you can imagine. Starting with FOO FIGHTERS’s and then there is John Lennon, Eric Claption, Sting-o, Sheryl Crow, Miss Nora Jones and my man Kayne.

So, I am now a BMI member and hopefully that will bring with it Fame & Fortune - (and Health & Happiness). At least it will protect my artistic rights and if/when my songs are played anywhere’s on this planet THEY will track it---really.

London is great and I heard some new artists at the Showcase where I played. One guy was like a young Bob Dylan; as comfortable and natural behind a mic as I have ever seen. Great new song material too.

So, I am highly inspired and I must go - but I hope you all enjoyed hearing about my trip and please keep those good thoughts coming my way... I believe they help!

Luv,

JD
