Wow just stepped away to grab a bite and came back to all this feedback! Thanks so much everyone
I will try and respond to everyone in one post so bare with me.
Thanks very much for the feedback, I recorded it just with a basic directional condenser mic aimed just at my chest to try and get a balanced sound
between guitar and vocals. I Just did it through garageband just so I could get something out and online to share around until I get into the studio
in March! I just booked a week of recording with a backing band and full production ( lucky for me I am a videographer by profession so I bartered
video work for studio time NO CASH HANDLED)
Great pickup on the Xavier Rudd influence though I am a huge fan and have seen him many times! My biggest influence would have to be Neil Young
though, maybe not as far as vocals and style but just exploring songwriting and telling a story.
Your feedback and compliments are greatly appreciated and I will be sure to mail a copy of the produced album to anyone on here for free when it gets
Drafted is my favorite song I've ever written so I really enjoy hearing positive feedback on that one. I always wanted to write from the position of
another person's shoes and I thought it would be neat to write about maybe if the draft was to be brought in again in this day and age.
Impressed on picking out the Martin tone in the recordings! That is my new baby I got myself for christmas
as for the influences I really don't
listen to any of them but velvet underground a bit! For Drafted, it is just standard tuning actually, just a weird riff I came across one night and it
just fell together from there.
Either way! The EP is free to download or you can pay what you like I don't mind either way! If you enjoy it please feel free to spread it around I
am pursuing my music career and I need all the help I can get ! I am doing a CD release of a full studio album in May in Ontario, and then heading out
to the east coast of Canada to do a small tour to promote and hopefully gain some fans !
Thanks very much everyone,
