Waiting To Run is superb. Their music is a hybrid of Rock, Pop and Folk. Full of soul and positive energy. Lead vocalist offers a sultry sound over live instrumentation - always a plus in a digital world. A soundtrack to life. Everything about this artist is purely polished and earns a spot on our 360 Watch List.

The usually acoustic-minded project of Milwaukee singer/songwriter Sue Smith, Waiting to Run collaborated with the Rockford band The Poets Dance for the new song "Lovesick," a Top 40-minded stab at modern electro-pop which has been posted to YouTube.

Alright…Running with my post tag promise, “I’ll give it a listen”…I think I’m going to start reserving Thursdays for listening through any Indie artist songs I receive!

Last week I listened through Naomi Stiemer…This week I’ll be listening through a couple tunes from Waiting to Run. Sue Smith, out of Wisconsin, had posted on “The Music Test” Facebook fan page about some of her tunes I could download during my “Spend My iTunes Gift Card” contest, even though here songs were available for FREE downloads HERE!

So…I quick downloaded them and set them aside so that I could listen through, when I had some time. Oh would you look at that…TIME! Here we go!

(Note: Comments are all made in “real” time as I listen through the song for the very first time and are also my personal opinions.)

Waiting to Run – “Tonight”

* Mmm…Acoustic guitar! Yippie!
* Very pleasant voice.
* I get the whole, solo act deal, but I think a little low end would be helpful. Something along the lines of male background vocals.

Waiting to Run – “He Stays”

* Ever had your heart broken? :) (I’ve written songs like this before.)
* Might ease back on the reverb and bring up the vocals a little bit.

Waiting to Run – “Even If I Crawl”

* Nice growly voice. Neat.
* This song has some low end in it. Makes it seem more full.
* Fun guitar sound throughout.

Waiting to Run – “A Perfect Moment”

* Ooo…BGV’s. At least I think I hear some in there. Good choice.
* Great potential with this song. Nice catchy chorus.

Overall…Nice guitar sounds, very pleasing voice. So…Great combo. I personally would make some enhancements, as stated above. ie. Add some male vocals to balance out the treble, cut back on the reverb a little so that it doesn’t sound like the vocals are too far away. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for sharing Sue and best of luck with all you do! (Hey…That rhymed!) - http://themusictest.com
