Pleasant easy listening material. Obviously, though, this is a niche genre restricted to smooth jazz stations and some public radio., That being said, those types of stations are always looking for new material. Some pure jazz stations will also entertain songs like this. That's where I'd focus my attention. As you point out, there is potential for streaming. If you could get this on any number of Spotify/Apple Music/etc. playlists, then there could be a nice payout over the long term.= Is there any thought to performing live? That will certainly help spread the word, although venues may be in short supply right now. Sync and licensing is also an option. Time to make friends with some music supervisors. Good luck. I'll share this with my networks.
Solid contemporary pop/hot AC. Nothing from me on songwriting, performance, or production. I have some connections with the Canadian radio industry, so let me pass this one. Meanwhile, I'll also offer this up to my social networks. That's good for about 100,000 people.
Huge sounding, emotive pop song with great production, catchy hook and poignant lyrics. nice work! In terms of promotion, I would start by suggesting that you work with a professional photographer and creative team to help develop your image. This is pop music you're making and the music sounds great but looking at your socials and website looks more like an artist just starting out and doesn't match the music. Pop music is about escape and goes hand in hand with image and aesthetic and I think if you really want to get noticed you need to create your own unique style and run with it. If you're not already, be sure to use all of the available and FREE artist tools across the DSPs like Spotify for Artists, Apple Music for Artists, Amazon Music for Artists and Bandcamp's artist platform as these will provide great insight into your fanbase, how your music is performing and allow you to optimize your profiles and pitch for inclusion on playlists in certain instances. If you're looking for more promotion and building a fanbase you should consider hiring a publicist or a marketing firm that you feel you can trust and is a fan of your music to help with the release of your next single and/or album to help you get visibility on blogs, playlisting, print media, etc. If you're not already on a label, consider trying to get signed to one as they can help you with the promo and playlist pitching. Lastly, make sure you have a strong social media presence and that you're on all the right platforms (tik tok, instagram, triller, etc.) with a unique aesthetic as this will help you draw in listeners and hopefully stand out amongst a sea of performers. Best of luck!
So many facets to this song! It's modern, it's retro. I hear Bruno Mars, Chicago, bits of 80s RnB/Pop, and modern alt rock. Then the ultra poppy chorus kicks in. I'm wondering what the songwriting/arranging team looks like, as far as influences go. Widely varied, if nothing else. Great voice. Nice pacing with the arrangement. Trying to envision this among a pop playlist...or maybe alt? Now the outro kicks in and it's super late 70s, like a montage in Saturday Night Fever or something. :) I'm not sure if the variety within this song makes it easier or harder to market to more traditional avenues. But the appeal would certainly stretch across generations within a household...
Hey. Thanks for sending... I like the song. It is well written and feels like a hit pop song especially the chorus. I think your vocal is interesting on the style of music too. You have sort of a tone that is reminiscent of pop rock bands like "The Downtown Fiction" or "The Ready Set" sort of a quirkiness to the tone and delivery which is kind of cool and the style of music you are doing. I think my only real comment with this particular track would be really focus on making the mix sound really polished as this style of music thrives on that. I by no means think this mix is bad, but really focusing on the balance of instruments in relation to the vocal and bring sure the track feels very full is so important in this style... Overall, i dig the song and appreciate you sending it along. Btw, love the vocal "acrobatics" toward the end. Some nice work in there!
Enjoyed the vocals and clearly the track was well produced with a properly balanced introduction and buildup. Reminds me of 90's Backstreet Boys and certainly sounded radio ready. Enjoyed the sound layering, chorus and is a great length. I'm not sure I understand the album cover, but the overall flow and production of the track sounded sharp and professional. Nicely done, enjoyed it.
Catchy! Stellar vocals most of the time, but the pitch correction is blatant in spots, especially the three note melismas. The chorus really takes it up a notch! Quite anthemic. And the bridge is a nice change in tone and texture. Those high ad libs at the end are tasty! This isn't a great fit for my synth-loving audience, but I'm happy to share it in case it helps. Thanks for sharing it with me! Brian. A couple suggestions for future Fluence submissions: 1. Include the lyrics so we can follow along (I understood them just fine, but wasn't always focused on them) 2. Include a short, catchy description of the song or act that's easy to copy/paste for social media sharing. That way we don't have to strain our brain coming up with something clever, and you get to choose how you're presented to the world.
Appealing art drew us in. Great vocal tone and pop style, although there's a tiny bit of a bobble in the vocals right at the start for me in the beginning for me (in 'more than a friend' lyric) that I might suggest re-rerecording/mixing (it almost disappears after a few listens though). The track picks up steam and I'm a fan of your vocal expression with the chorus, which is the part of the song I resonate with. Get a bit lost at 2:10 with the slow segue, but then the chorus brings me back again. This isn't quite our personal style or taste lyrically, but there's much talent here vocally especially, hope you stay with it and continue to express yourself through your music. Hope that's helpful to you, good luck with your music, thanks for your submission!
Nice, breezy adult pop. Good stuff! No notes from me on any aspect of the material. Have you had any success with radio play at home? Let me circulate this amongst some people here in Canada. Let's hope that they catch on to what you're doing.
Nice, catchy and well-written pop song with a very chill production that def makes me think of the beach a la the cover art. I would start by suggesting that you include a brief bio, lyrics, a description of the track and links to your social media in your Fluence submission so people can find out more about you. This is your elevator pitch in front of the right people so you want to make it as easy as possible for listeners to get the full picture and find more of your music if they're interested. The same should apply when you're promoting your music to a fanbase. If you're not already, be sure to use all of the available and FREE artist tools across the DSPs like Spotify for Artists, Apple Music for Artists, Amazon Music for Artists and Bandcamp's artist platform as these will provide great insight into your fanbase, how your music is performing and allow you to optimize your profiles and pitch for inclusion on playlists in certain instances. If you're looking for more promotion and building a fanbase you should consider hiring a publicist or a marketing firm that you feel you can trust and is a fan of your music to help with the release of your next single and/or album to help you get visibility on blogs, playlisting, etc. If you're not already on a label, consider trying to get signed to one as they can help you with the promo and playlist pitching.Also, be sure to get on Tik Tok and Triller as so many labels and talent scouts are looking there for new artists. Best of luck!
