"Reviews of SweetDuration's latest 3-song CD "No More""

Check out reviews of our songs "No More" and "My Day" from all over the world, submitted by music fans to the website Garageband.com...

The song "NO MORE":

"Right here we have one of the best female voices on Garageband.com. Lots of power and soul. You've really got the type of voice that was made for a song like this. Soft when you need to be soft, then rockin when the song gets rockin. Very nice indeed….I'll be playing this one again, and soon.”
--A Fan in Melbourne, FL

“Good song. This is one of the artists I expect to hear on the radio in my city in the next few years. They are good enough to fit in whichever market they choose to release a single in.”
--A Fan from Sheridan, CO

“I thought that the production was superb, the performance tight, the vocals were phenomenal, very strong hook, lots of dynamics and an outstanding job of mixing. Brilliant job of song "crafting" as well. The arrangements were just right, can't find a single flaw here!!!! I wish I could rate this a 6 but they only let me go 5!!!!! OUTSTANDING JOB!!!”
--A Fan in Port Richey, FL

“Well produced, well played and well sung. A nice surprise amongst all the mediocre bands at Garageband.com. Keep up the good work!”
-- A Fan in Trondheim, Norway

The song "MY DAY":

“Sexy vocals. Great Tune! The lead vocals are outstanding! The melody over the verses: excellent! The melody over the hook: even better! The chorus is also very good. I had to listen to this one twice. I am giving you a lot of extra credit on this song! I love it!”
--A Fan in Santa Monica, CA

“Beautiful and flowing. This is an excellent band. The singer has a beautiful voice. I hope to hear more later.”
--A Fan from Tulsa, OK

Feeling a bit camera shy


Sometimes crooning soft and sweet, sometimes belting out strong, SweetDuration couples the powerful vocals of their female lead singer with catchy, dynamic, and memorable alternative pop/rock music.

SweetDuration has earned a substantial following in northern California through their live shows, and online through their official website and music sites such as mp3.com, Garageband.com and online radio station Choice Radio. As a result of countless favorable reviews from the title track of SweetDuration's latest EP CD, their song "No More" was selected as Garageband.com's Track of the Day on April 23rd, 2004 in the Pop/Rock genre. In 2001, following the release of their self-titled first full-length CD, their song "Let's Go Wild" hit #5 out of 15,000 songs in the Pop/Rock genre, receiving strong positive reviews from countries all over the world.

In June 2003, SweetDuration beat out other San Francisco Bay Area acts to win the Battle of the Bands sponsored by Mix 106.5 KEZR, one of the most popular commercial AAA radio stations in the Silicon Valley, and previously, their song "Make Up Your Mind" received a significant number of votes in their New Music Showdown on the air. As a result of such attention, SweetDuration has shared bills with such major acts as Stabbing Westward (now called "The Dreaming"), Jason Mraz, Dana Glover, Chantal Kreviazuk, and Josh Kelley. They appeared live on 107.7 The Bone (KSAN)'s popular morning show before their Voodoo Lounge performance in San Francisco in 2002, and the band was invited to headline Mix 106.5's Listener Appreciation Day at theme park Raging Waters in 2001. Their music has also gained popularity on many college stations across the country. In April 2004, they appeared as musical guests on UPN TV's comedy show "Seriously Unusual Television Network (SUTN)," which boasts over 100,000 Northern California viewers. SweetDuration has also appeared on several Bay Area cable TV shows such as Bay Area Live and charity telethons, such as the EHC Hunger Drive and the 13th Annual Soundwaves Christmas Show to raise money for needy families.

SweetDuration is the songwriting team of lead vocalist Jennifer McBride and rhythm guitarist Mike McCullough, and the duo is currently backed by a killer lineup--Jeremy Pullman on lead guitar, Don String on keyboards, Kevin Sullivan on bass guitar and Scott Smith on drums/percussion. If you were to ask founding members Jennifer and Mike how the band came to be, they would probably laugh and tell you an interesting tale of karaoke over drinks one night at a local pub in the San Jose area back in 1999. What started out as carefree fun at that pub inspired them to create music of their own. Soon, they began to get together frequently at Mike's house to write songs. With a handful of original songs completed, they started out performing at open mic nights, or while the live band of the night took a break mid-show at a Bay Area pub. Getting great responses from the crowds, they realized they just might have something special, and started to get more serious about their efforts.

SweetDuration is proud of their latest 3-song CD "No More," which was released mid-2004. They worked with talented producer Adam Rossi--who has worked with the likes of Luce, Savage Garden and Aerosmith--and are thrilled at the sound he helped them achieve. With their killer lineup of musicians, SweetDuration's full band is currently hard at work performing many shows across the state of California.
