Hi Raygun,
Thank you so much for your submission...

This is beautiful...In every possible way...
Love everything about this...The music, the lyrics, the instrumentation...the production.
And the video is very evocative and beautifully executed. And filmed in Cairo? Wow...

Thank you!

Hi there...
Thanks so much for your submission...

In one sentence: If Jane's Addiction and Band of Horses had a baby, they would call it Mr. Dreem.

I really like this song...a lot. It's gorgeous...It's also really well produced and your lyrics match the music...To say, they are equally good, which is rare.

It takes a good song to make me forget what I'm doing and just let me slide inside it, allowing it to completely envelop me into its world...This song did that...

I will share it...and would love a good quality MP3 please.

Thank you!

Attention by Gene Evaro Jr

Valida Carroll

Hey Gene,

You're da*n right I'm into this! You know me too well! haha

Can I please have an MP3 of this? Would love to drop it in my sets!

Oh...And really wouldn't change a thing...It's really really really good...You really mastered the art of phrasing. You fit things in places most people wouldn't dare to even try...and IT WORKS! So yeah...Good job.

This will get some nice spins for sure.

Break Something Beautiful by Julia Lenhardt

Valida Carroll

Hi Julia,
Thanks so much for your submission.

This is is beautiful...Strong Laura Marling vibes. It's really moving...Love the production and your voice is gorgeous.

Where are you based? This would actually be perfect for Desert evening of live music I curate in Hollywood. Do you have more stuff that sounds like this?

Can I please have an MP3 for radio play?

Thank you!

The Neon Design by Tim Kuhl

Valida Carroll

Hey Tim,
Thanks so much for your submission.

This is lovely. I love how the track builds and intensifies...Indeed, it's the perfect soundtrack for a dystopian film noir. The scene where the few survivors of an apocalyptic meltdown come up from their underground shelter to survey the damage....and Earth is just a vast wasteland...Yes. That scene...

I'd love a better version of this track...I can definitely use this in my show...It's the perfect talk-over track in the late night hour.

Thanks again!

Hey Toledo!
Thanks so much for your submission...

This is really awesome! I love everything about this. The song is gorgeous...and the juxtaposition is just, deadly! (pun intended)

I have too many favorite moments to list them all here, but have to give one honorable mention to the "what are you waiting for, go get her; before she moves on to someone better" shot...So good!

Will definitely share this...Can I have the MP3? Do you have other songs that sound similar? What does your live show consist of? Where are you based?
