Welcome to the Showcase. A nice first post.

A very pleasant listen. Nice arrangement and pleasant vocals. The chorus reminded me of a sound similar to Steve Gillette's "A Little Warmth".

Interesting collaborations - how did you hook up with all those people?

Enjoyed it.

Hi floyd,

Thanks for the feedback. You have an amazing catalog.

There are quite a few collaboration sites online. Some good, some bad and some we won't even mention. Signed up to a few, most are free. The one that worked the best for me is Kompoz

There is some amazing talent out there willing to help. RB and BIAB are great, but the live human touch is still the ultimate.

Check it out. Keep in touch.

Happy New Year

Hi Scott,
Thanks for the comment. Wasn't thinking Taylor when I wrote it. Words and melody originally written in 5 minutes as part of a songwriter competition.

You have an amazing catalog. Been listening for half an hour. Can't leave.

Happy New Year

Hi Richard,

Harmonies and dynamics has always been my thing. Loud all the time is just not where I'm at.

You certainly have a gift for lyrics. Been listening and enjoying your songs.

Best wishes for a healthy and happy new year.

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication:

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me":
