Hey Tanner, I like this track. the vocal is great (is that Enza who auditioned for the Voice?) Is this an original vocal? I've played around with the arrangement a little and you can check it out here: https://we.tl/ReA0urbbk4 The chorus is very strong but it's in so little that you need to bring it to the fore a little more You also don't need some of the little filler sections Work around a verse chorus structure ie verse chorus verse chorus breakdown / middle 8 chorus chorus end as that works best for radio The downside is that it might be a little dated now and the sounds probably need sharpening up now too (it's very Zedd 2014) which means the track may suffer because of that What's your plan release wise? Do you have a label? etc etc What's your plan? I look forward to hearing more
Hi Tanner, Thanks for sending this through, loved it! The chord progression was catchy and loved the arpeggios from the piano at 0:40.. you can tell thought has gone into the creation of the instrumentation. I am not opposed to auto tune because ever song uses it, but be careful of it in some parts you can hear it's effect on Enza's voice and she has a great tone which I wouldn't want to ruin. You've created a great little demo here and it definitely deserves to be finished! Once the chorus is finished I would work on building that production even more. The post chorus 'dance section' is often heavily synth driven and a short 4 bar repeated riff so work on building up to that. All in all this could be a good, catchy, summer pop/dance track! Great job! - Following on SCloud to see what else comes!
