Hello again from sunny Sydney
on: January 03, 2020, 00:28:55
Hi all, I was invited a few years ago to join this forum. I browsed for a bit but life got in the way and I dropped off.

I recently decided I'd love to get more involved in the community and really hone my songwriting skills.

I'm a singer/guitarist/producer, and I'm working on my Neo-Soul band Honey Head, and my own solo project called Joon River, which I've yet to really define into a particular genre/sound but I'm keen to explore that more in 2020.

Here's a link to my SoundCloud for anyone interested: https://soundcloud.com/joonriver

Cheers!
Joon

Although I am not making that kind of music, I love to listen to northern soul. That you add your own kind of light footed brand is only an extra reason to keep a keen eye on your work here.
I like what I heard so far, but iím going to have to look up woodsomething, because I never heard that word before.
Great, everyday I learn something.

Welcome aboard @Joon River !
I can easily get up used to this sort of music.
And I am going to enjoy this getting used to every step of the way.
Kind regards, Gus

Hey @Joon River ....I am listening to Woodcroft. I love this sound that you have!!!  Nice guitar work and really pleasant vocals......just really nice stuff.

@Joon River  - welcome back. I do hope all is okay with you in Sydney, the severe bushfires have dominated the news in the Netherlands or the last few days. Worrying situation...

I listened to https://soundcloud.com/joonriver/deciding
fine title, picture and song. I thought the drums were a bit overpowering when they came into the mix. But that is a monor detail.
https://soundcloud.com/joonriver/too-long - digging the ambient sounds.
Keep it up!

Hi @Joon River and a belated welcome to the Kitchen - I missed this post earlier.

And hello from another Kitchener from Sydney. Always good to an Aussie on here.

I've had a listen to some of your songs - great guitar playing and vocals!

cheers

Yesterday, the 8 o'clock news on TV mentioned it rains in Sydney. Now I don't believe everything I hear and see on TV, but if it's true @Joon River , that is good news.
I seriously consider donating half of the Dutch rain to Australia. If only I could figure out a method how to do it....
Kind regards, Gus
