  1. Geriatric Gypsy This is going places!
    I like everything about this song! It's fun, clever, and well produced. Of course, I'm partial to songs that make me smile, tap my foot, and sing along...in the first few seconds. LOL And this song doesn't let go until the very end.

    Your melody and instrumentation was well done. The bouncy melody and clever lyrics blend perfectly. It's very entertaining and fun.

  2. Feel The Train ...................................I'm feeling it.
    Like the fade in, sets the tone. You got a real Highwaymen/Cash thing going on here. Good stuff. There's really nothing to complain about here. Sounds like Luther came back from the dead to play for you on this one. Way to go!

    A very solid song. The guitar work is nice and i like the "groove " to the overall track. The lyrics seem to say that your'e not taking yourself too serious & having fun with this tune and it works real well. You may think about implementing a short "break" into the song just to change it up a tad, but not too long because the melody is the strength of this one. Vocally, my first impression was "man, they could really use a more polished singer" but as i listened you really grew on me. You have a nice bottom end to your voice, similar to alot of singers of eras gone by (Johnny Cash,Conway Twitty, etc.). Real nice work!

  7. Give Half the Song To Me                                                                     This song has the sound I like..if your gonna play country, play country not some commercial fabrication of it..this song is the real deal...bittersweet ironic lyrics...in the tradition of all the great country songwriters..the vocal delivery is humble and sincere...the drums mosey along and the guitar provides the dirty country road...I really like this song..great sound...great concept..singin about the country life..you are a real cowboy singer..keep both halves...good show Extra Credit: Male Vocals, Guitars, Lyrics, Mood
