Hi Melissa! I love your voice! I love how everything fits together and sounds like something you would hear on the radio. I wouldn't change a thing. Feel free to send me more submissions when you have them.
"A Night Like This" embodies stellar production value. A recording of this sort is at once its own pro & con -- it's got a full-bodied Nashville-country sound. For that reason, it's got potential to break into country radio and spread into fans' playlists. The potential downside to that is that the 'safe' arrangement and standard melodic and instrumental arrangement won't stand out against the existing popular songs. Melissa's got a crystalline voice and support that could take her to the top, possessing as much talent as anyone already there. We'll certainly share this song on our social media.

Thank you for reaching out and submitting to me Melissa. Starting out the mix in the record sounds like a solid studio demo. Good spacing between all of the elements and the vox are in a good place within the mix. Performance-wise you do a good job of bringing the song to life and give what I calla believable performance. I liked the composition/lyrics overall as well. I do think the concept is a bit mundane though. I also think you have a good voice, but the song overall just sounds “done before”. When it comes to pop/rock I’m definitely looking for something more original sounding and progressive. I do think the record could do well in licensing for TV/Films though. I hope the feedback helps. Thank you.
