Pro General Comments: Please note I don't rate individual instrumentation since my expertise lies more in marketability, lyric, melody, and overall performance.Song has good energy and attitude. It moves along nicely. There are no dead moments. Verses are kinda spoken- which for some reason reminds me of some of the Cure's hits. See how they build the arrangements and add dynamics...They may be good for you to study to get some ideas.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Dhn_iIQXDEGood build to chorus which is important. Your hook stands out which is good. You might even want to emphasize the melodic build a bit more here to really make it come in with a huge impact and make it more memorable. Nice use of rhyme in your hook- the more the merrier!Interesting vibe and some cool arrangement flavors you have going on. It shows you are developing a good handle on this genre... The breakdown is catchy- where you repeat "day by day".....Old school vibe and Interesting percussive elements. That bouncy keyboard part adds a good color- nice.Perhaps you may want to cowrite with a lyricist who can help bring more organization to the storyline. Right now the story/idea seems a little confusing, hard to follow.For eg who exactly is "he"? Who is the singer and why are they singing about this person? Usually a title is your main "hook." The word fake could be an interesting title- it suggests alot of things. But we need more. Why is this person fake? What is the oppositte of fake? How are they oppositte? You want to make your listener care. What is at stake here? It seems a little vague.A song should have a beginning, middle and end. What has changed by the ending? Make sure your lyric has an arc- where something has changed by the end. This is what makes a song interesting.Good song development. You have the right tools. With some tweaking of the lyric, you will have a solid song. Good luck.

Quote From Pro: Song has great momentum and flavourful arrangements, the chorus comes in with a bang like it should.

Pro General Comments: Good mixLive drums could hav added an element of excitementVocal melody and tone is excellentI like the theme of the song. Great subject . Nice to hear something positive for a change.Lyrics are great.verse 1 I feel like im a little bored . It could be the vocal melody or something in the track that could bring just a touch of excitment to the verse. sometimestaking away an inst. is like adding soemthing to the track.Rich, its all about attention span of the listener. nowadays people have very short attention spans so if you do get their attention within the verse few secs of the track you will lose their interest.Hook is very well sung the vocal backgrounds are placed very well.Good overall mix. I would have like to hear a maybe some live drums incorperated Hi Hats maybe need to be blended just a bit.Yes I defintley think this would be a great track for any commercial use for sure! Radio is we i hear this track pop radio any where you would hear Bruno Mars or Sam Smith music.very nice pre hook, this track has all the elements to be a hit song for sure.id be interested in knowing if you are pushing it to radio.and I would also like to hear more of your work.its also interesting to think about as a pop record but i also hear it as a country record with a little slide guitar and a fiddle...Pop/Country is hot right now.I really enjoyed listing and reviewing your track Rich.

Quote From Pro: This song is great inspiration for me and i'm sure will be an inspiration for anyone feeling down or uninspired!Bruno Mars lookout!!

Pro General Comments: This is a hit song in my humble opinion. 5:05 is a little long for commercial radio but it's perfect for all the other formats. Karma is a simplistic generic hook but it's delivered with so much attitude it feels new. I'm very impressed with everything about this song. I listened intently from the first downbeat to the last note and was thoroughly entertained. You kept me interested. I want to hear this song again and again and i'm sure so will your followers. It would be on my playlist for sure. This song should open the door for you and your band to get in the door with major labels if that is your goal. This is an attention grabber. The first song I evaluated had mixing problems and I couldn't understand a lot of the lyrics. The 2nd song was much better and this one was killer. Get it out there and make some money...There is no way Crucial Music or any of the major music libraries would pass on this song. I'm excited for you. Keep up the good work.

Quote From Pro: Stella Rising's song "Karma" is a deal maker. This song won't just open doors it will kick them in. Impressive performances from everyone involved. The sky's the limit for Stella Rising!!!!

Pro General Comments: My only concern is the battle between the lyric being understood and the drums and guitar trying to drown out the vocal. In my opinion the drums and guitar eked out a victory. Just my opinion but the drums and guitar could come down a little in the mix or the vocal could be raised a little in the mix. There were spots in the verses where i couldn't quite make out what the singer was saying.The chorus is very strong and clear...Love the vocal pitch and attitude...very catchy and memorable music hooks and melodic lines. This is very commercial and your fans should love it. The overall mix feels and sounds like it was recorded live. If that's the effect you were going for you nailed it. Other than me not understanding some of the words I really think this is a strong commercial song. A music library or music placement company should have no problem placing this in a movie television show or commercial. Good luck with it. I hope my comments are helpful.

Quote From Pro: Stella Rising is on the verge of making a loud splash in the indie blues rock genre with great vocals interesting lyrics and great band instrumentalists. I would not be surprised to hear one of their songs in a movie television show or commercial in the very near future.

Robert Dellaposta (Writer, A&R, Publisher)

Pro General Comments: The only problem i have with the song period is that i couldn't make out what the singer was saying...the lyric isn't clear in the mix. I had asked Broad jam to contact you over a week ago to send lyrics with your submission but the lyrics never came. I'll focus on the other aspects of your song. If you want a detailed evaluation of the lyrics please send them to my3kidsmusic@comcast.net The quality of the vocal pitch was excellent as well as the meter and phrasing. The instrumentalists were excellent. Very strong performances from everyone involved in the production. Except for the clarity of the lyrics this song gets an A+...The instrumental alone is very pitchable to music libraries and music placement companies for movie and television feature and background use as well as instrumental beds for commercials. The lyric would have to be scene specific to be used...overall length of song is commercial and radio friendly.You guys and gals are definitely in the game and should be a successful indie band in this genre. Try adding some background vocals to the chorus to make it stand out a little more from the verses

Quote From Pro: I would not be surprised to see a Stella Rising song being featured in a movie or television show or commercial in the near future. The quality of vocal and instrumental performances are very strong and competitive with the best.
