Re: Summer Lover (Collab with pompeyjazz - Summer Song Competition)

Really enjoyable - love the lyrics - once you get over the unusual vocal delivery and hear it a few times it really grows on you. And Pompey jazz is getting pretty good at this producing lark Cheesy

Re: Summer Lover (Collab with pompeyjazz - Summer Song Competition)

Hey Darren,

John is a darling isn't he? This so what the forums all about for me, leveraging different skills to help each other reach new heights.

Reading the lyrics first, I really admire how the first two verses set the scene so elegantly. Super relatable and very well put together imho.

Listening, this blew me away to be honest... Had to plug the speaker in and show my dad, then give your other stuff a listen!

Absolutely love your style, safe to say you have a new fan and John's masterwork has of course propelled this one to another level.

Keep em coming, please!

All the best

Avid for competitions, collaboration and fun!

Re: Summer Lover (Collab with pompeyjazz - Summer Song Competition)

Very enjoyable song. Love how the production seems to bring everything forward in the mix. There's quite a lot packed into 2 minutes including a superb guitar break. Can't really offer any constructive criticism I'm afraid. You've got a top song and a pro sidekick producing for you. This summer competition is really hotting up!

Re: Summer Lover (Collab with pompeyjazz - Summer Song Competition)


So I realised Morefrog reviewed and I have been rude enough not to thank you!! Tongue missed that you had posted is all...but I am very grateful for your kind comments. I kinda dig that you think my vocal is unusual....because if anything that is what it is Tongue so thank you and yeah Pompey did a fab job, forever grateful

Scott thank you so much for a rave review!! It's very nice to hear that you like my song and my style! Smiley great for my confidence (for which I am lacking!) so thank you very much. I hope your dad enjoyed it too Tongue and I'm very taken aback that you say I have a new fan! So thank you thank you thank you...I do plan on getting more out there but still slowly working on my production skills (severely lacking...)

And yes this forum has been such a great resource since I have stumbled on it and to have someone take the time to help with producing my music is amazing.

Hey Mickey - so please you enjoyed the track and yes there's some superb entries to the summer song competition, many talented folks on this forum!!

Thanks to all that listened!! Regards Darren

Re: Summer Lover (Collab with pompeyjazz - Summer Song Competition)

Ah, this was a quirky little bugger, took a while before I got me head around it but once I did it was movin' and groovin' in a great way! Found the guitars a bit "fat" if that makes any sense? Sort of taking up a little too much sonic real estate and lacking a little bit/edge? Think the "solo" guitar could come down a little in the mix and perhaps loose a little of the reverb but that is down to taste I guess.
Must say this one really grew on me, well done!

My first album

Re: Summer Lover (Collab with pompeyjazz - Summer Song Competition)

Now that's what I call infectious! Drives along without let up and with plenty of punch. Clever lyrics full of personality which keep us interested all through. It's just a good song I think, and the guitar-led production suits it so well. Nice stuff guys.

Re: Summer Lover (Collab with pompeyjazz - Summer Song Competition)

Jam, Adam and Bin - Thank you so much for listening and your kind and constructive comments. I have been overwhelmed with the positive reception to this track! It's especially nice to hear kind comments of my voice as it's something of an insecurity to me. So thank you all Smiley

Jam - Thank you for the comments. My skills at identifying flaws in a mix are pretty much nil so I will try to hear what you do - it will be a good pointer for me in developing an ear. I must say that learning how to identify improvements in a mix is a hard skill to learn but like everything I suppose it is down to practice.

Re: Summer Lover (Collab with pompeyjazz - Summer Song Competition)

Hi Darren

It's the lyrics and their delivery that sold me on this.
Oh, and perfect length  Grin
John's expert touch on the mix and production shines through.
No nits from me - I enjoyed it!
Well done lads  Grin
