Picture On The Wall by Josh Steinhart

Jerry Doby

Really enjoyed the storyline and musical arrangement. Time DOES move along without us really noticing. Haunting goodbye story but an awesome celebration of the good times in life. 4/5 for me and I'd add this to my playlist sure thing.

make by Nick Arneson

Jerry Doby

I was hooked at the opening bell on this one! You are so right in the fact that "...the truth isn't fu*king shared..." many are lost as to what to do as individuals. Great call to action as we need to band together to stop the "...monster..." from running the way it does now. Sonically the track is amazing, great intervals and changes, lyrical missiles dripping with emotion yet not a hopeless vein...love it.

Calico Jay submitted media.

Jerry Doby

Awesome sonics and a great story. Love the message about owning your own home, not many speak on this level with their music lately. While not the single I'd add to my playlist, definitely an album cut that makes the project whole. Well done!

Mathieu Morrison submitted media.

Jerry Doby

Not bad for a one-taker! Love the concept and yes vocals needed to be boosted as drummer was smashing!!! Bass player might have kept drummer more on point as in his runs he kinda got a bit off but overall the punctuation was good. I enjoyed the changes and intervals very much and I'll bet with a good mix and boosted vocals this song jams.

This is a nice lounge act song and would set the tone for an amazing candle-lit evening. Lovely arrangement and full voice moments. No need to hide your power though, the track can handle it!

Ten Whiskey Girl by Various Artists - Topic

Jerry Doby

Great arrangement. Vocal timber and Intonation matched well with the production. Entertaining story!

Jon Pruett submitted media.

Jerry Doby

Amazing collection of songs. Love the metal edge...I used to ride out on convoy in Afghanistan to Nonpoint "Bullet With A Name" and the like. Your music is speaking for a lot of us who did damage elsewhere only to find out we'd been lied to as we witness the same garbage back here at home.

Musically, great arrangement, the diversity in vocal timbre puts just the right emphasis and I enjoyed how the vocals were separate yet melded into the sonic dynamics. Looking forward to more from you!

Slick wordplay, excellent arrangement and punctuation with the guitar! Fun song and good album cut.

Jerry Doby

Anytime the sax is added to an arrangement it makes it extra special. Love the vocals, perfect timbre to accompany the production. Had to laugh at the reality of the story...If I had a dolla!!! That's too real. Imp it for radio and this could probably get mad love.

Ain't Got Nothing But The Blues by Natalie bancroft

You really have an amazing voice when you let it out. Take the power from 2:01 to close and put that at the beginning and you've got it nailed. Let those lungs do what they do!

Baby It's You by Gabriel

Jerry Doby

Well arranged and written. I enjoyed the nostalgic sound. Strong vocals and I enjoyed the “Love at first sight” theme...we need more of that! 

submitted media.

Jerry Doby

Amazing joint. Well arranged and the lyrical delivery melded perfectly with the music bed. There is slick wordplay worthy of an emcee and then the direct in your face references such as The Rosa Parks interval. Great use of timbre and intonation giving this a slightly dark undertone. 4/5 for me and something I can see on a platform like The Hype Magazine
