Latest Original Song

Postby BB4LIFE » Tue Nov 22, 2016 11:39 pm

Hey Everyone,

I'm currently in the process of working on my first album. I'm hoping to have something finished by next summer/fall. In the meantime...here's something I just recently came up with kind of out of the blue. I was working on other songs and then this melody all of a sudden came to life, ha. I hope some of you might like it.

I'll probably record a better version of it someday in the studio. But for now this demo version will have to do. It features a friend of mine on vocals. We just used her phone to record it...so the audio is not the best quality.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Take Care,

Layne

When there's so much mediocrity in music nowadays this is a rare 'Diamond'
Thanks for posting and good luck with your career Layne.

Hey...you're welcome...and thank you, Blue. Thank you for the compliment and good luck wishes. Whenever I finish my album, I'll make sure to post information on this forum on how to get it.

Thanks again,

Layne

.... Layne!

Your talent is evolving in such a remarkable way! ... For me - very few songs have a lot of appeal the first time I hear them. THIS ONE DID! ... For the record - I was not impressed with most of my all-time favorite songs the first time I heard them. This includes a lot of my Bacharach favorites. ... I suspect you've got a lot of songs that you have not posted. I'll bet many are quite good. ... Keep up the great effort - you are heading in the right direction!

Hi Ron,

Sorry I'm just now getting back to you. For some reason I no longer get notifications in my e-mail when someone leaves a comment regarding my post. I just happened to have been listening to this song today and figured I'd check to see if anyone else left a comment. So here I am.

Let me say thank you very much for your truly kind and encouraging words. I really appreciate it. It's always nice to know that someone enjoys your work. And that's especially true if you've never met that someone. I've got a lot of family and friends who say they like my music...but of course they're mostly going to say that, haha. But I get a real kick out of complete strangers commenting on my YouTube channel saying that they like my music. And I enjoy coming to the forum and having people like yourself and others who I've met on here comment on my songs. It's a really cool connection that isn't the same with those who already know me really well. So thanks for the taking the time to share your thoughts.

I do have quite a few songs that I haven't released or finished yet. I'm hoping to have all my best work so far on an album sometime next year. That's my goal. Hopefully you and others will get the chance to hear it and possibly enjoy it : )

Thank you again for the wonderful comment and compliments. I'll take the positive energy you sent and use it to go forward with my songwriting.

Take Care, Ron.

Layne
