Love this. There's some issue with the mixing/mastering, the bass is turned way up and, for me, stands in the way of my really appreciating and being able to groove to this track. Would love to hear this remixed/remastered, or a higher quality file possibly --not sure exactly, but something needs to be addressed! Would include it on playlists and shows once that was taken care of, is that possible? At the same time, the bones of this are excellent -- charismatic sound, great vocals, arrangement, song. Itching to play it! -- but can't in its present mixed form, just won't sound good.... Thanks for your submission, good luck with your music! Thanks Ben!

Really enjoyed your voice and the message. Both are reminiscent of Dave Hollister, which is definitely a compliment given his longevity and success in the industry. Very refreshing to hear some real R&B music and lyrics with some passion behind them. Thumbs up for the production and sound quality. Interested in hearing more and seeing music videos if available.
"Say Yea" sounds swiftly entrancing from the beginning, with a brisk assortment of piano and strings serving as the backdrop to optimistically passionate vocals that tread between pop and soul in their stylistic delivery. The actual "yea"-ing during the chorus around 01:20 is melodically gripping, and apt considering the track's title. The sound in general actually reminds me of the excellent Gnarls Barkley - certainly a good prospect for potential radio play. The vocals may lack the falsetto of CeeLo Green, but there's a tonal similarity - like a deeper and more melodically relaxed version. I'm particularly fond of the melodic transition around 02:50, when the strings and multi-layered vocal switch to an even more charismatic and exotic-sounding section. This is a solid track; doesn't grip me in an extraordinary way, but it's very well-polished and should do well. Thanks for the submission -Mike
"Everything" is a commendable hip-pop success with tons of infectious charm. The clanging percussion and anxious synth sample in the intro serve as a great addition to the revolving brass throughout, which is a great element here. I'm a bigger fan of the execution on this track than on "Say Yea", which was very good but a bit wistful for my taste. This track - with its brass build-ups, charismatic vocal delivery, and punch-y hooks - is highly impressive in its execution though. The playful hip-hop bridge just after the two-minute mark is a fine choice as well, with the eventual brass emergence around 02:35 once again serving as a great accompaniment to the crisp-clear vocals. Look out for a post on OS in the future, and reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if in need of help with promotion; I can send success stories/rates regarding my digital PR servicing upon request.
