Hello from Malaysia!
on: December 01, 2017, 16:30:15
 Hi everyone!

My name is Brendan and I come from Penang, Malaysia. Well, although there are only limited opportunities in my country in the music industry, I took up songwriting as a hobby last year as a first step for me to make it a profession. I can do a bit of FL studio work, play the piano, guitar, and I play the snare drum in my school marching band  ;D

Well I have written around 6-7 songs (melody included) but my only problem is to find vocals for my work. Right now I'm sort of accepted to be the songwriter of a band in my school, which brings me to the main reason I joined this community. I feel like I need someone experienced to critic my work. I discovered this website after watching a video from Holistic Songwriting on youtube

My music is mostly mid tempo, as I listen to 80s and 90s music growing up. I only started to assimilate modern musical styles into my work quite recently, but most of it is just sentimental alt. rock/ pop genre

I definitely look forward to get another step forward in my journey, and I would always be hoping to improve myself time after time.

Welcome @Brendan7  - looking forward hearing your music. What clip on Holistic Songwriting did you see to wind up on this Forum?
Something like this?

Hey @Brendan7

Welcome to the kitchen! :D I wish you the best of luck with your new hobby :) It's great that you can play different instruments as that insight would definitely be of help when writing songs :) It's also cool that you've been accepted to write songs for your school band. I hope you'll like it here - this place is full of ears and kitcheners over here can be really helpful and encouraging :)

Happy cooking!
Rachel
