Hi @Songwriter16

Welcome to the kitchen! It's a cool place - worldwide but small, friendly and free. (Unlike other forum websites it is completely run by volunteers.)

It would be great if you could start a thread in the "me" section, introduce yourself, tell us where you're from and what you do!
https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/me/1/
You also can add links to soundcloud, twitter, facebook,  etc. in your profile so that people can find you.

Regarding the posting of songs for review a couple of our members have given you excellent advice where they suggested .... giving a bit of a description of the song and posting the lyrics because this is a worldwide forum and for many English is a second or third language.

You can edit your post by clicking the blue button at the bottom of the box that says "modify post" or edit. You also can reply to this and give us more detail ..... you'll get more interest the more detail you give and the more you interact with others.

Regards,
Bill

Feel free to contact any of our friendly Kitchen Staff if you need help https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/teampage/

Thanks for that @oorlab . I'm listening to "The Man You Wanted To Be". This is really good stuff @Songwriter16 ! I am absolutely enjoying this listen.

So "Every Face Tells A Story" now. I like that lead guitar tone that you sneak in there. Really tight playing. Seriously great songs and I'm liking your style a lot. You have a unique voice I like how you handle it in these mixes.

I was going to get back to what I'm doing here in the studio....but now I'm listening to "Let Me Out". I think my studio stuff can wait.......I'm going to do some more listening and see what else you have to say.

Know me by my music....but only if it reaches you.......fantastic line.

@Songwriter16 I couldn't open the link, but I took a listen to The Man You Wanted to Be, just to get an idea of what you do. Although you use a smaller array of instruments than they do, I can sense a Supertamp or possibly Dire Straits influence there.

I also listened to Every Face Tells A Story. The solo is nice work, you can feel it coming a long time in the song, and it's good that you made it happen.

They are both nicely worked out songs, with a pretty straightforward chord and rhythm progression. It works well for the songs. I liked listening to them. When it comes to the storytelling quality of the songs (just supposing you may be looking for it) I think that Every Face is slightly stronger. I think the reason may be the way it's built up.

I've listened to your 'Madness & Heartaches' ... I've posted elsewhere about that.

I'll get around to your newer material soon but I agree there is a Dire Straits influence in some songs from Madness and Heartaches, especially some of the solo work.
