Pro General Comments: I know a real Katrina so it was a nice surprise to hear where it went with the New Orleans story and sound with the horns. Loving the trumpet and trombone and clarinet. Nicely put together. The main problems are due to this genre lending itself to real drums. The song is lovely. The programed drums sound a little stiff compared to how this could be. Love the intro it really sets the mood. I wish there was a place to see the lyrics beyond just listening. The vocal seems a tad back in the mix which is wrong for this story song. Bump up the vocal. The piano is nicely played and all the tempo changes are in the right place. But, dang this one could really benefit from some of the real thing. Is the bass real? The drums sound too perfect. The banjo is great. I wish I heard it in more sections. Something in the low end of the piano/bass combo sounds a bit clunky/clashiy tonewise. I bet a real piano would solve it. I bet the bridge would play better, too with real drums and piano. It's tough to pull off this genre with the programmed stuff, so better to crank the vocals up, cause that's where the song is.

Quote From Pro: Poignant telling of hurricane Katrina's impact on this talented artist with a New Orleans sound that pays homage to its home city.

Pro General Comments: Hey Charles, I think this song has potential to make it onto radio and some film placements but I would need to be re-produced to meet sound quality standards. You remind me of some of the great Motown artists like Smokey Robinson and Marvin Gaye. I think the instruments sound way to programed and synthetic and if you use some live musicians it would bring a whole new life to the recording. I'd love to discuss this and possibly help you to produce it. My email is workingwithroy@gmail.com. Possibly a live guitar and bass would be a nice start to balance it out and add a more soulful feeling. I love the lyrics overall and the message is very timely.

Pro General Comments: "Give You My Love" might be an alt title and it impressed me as a great song. Like every good or great or outstanding song as all they need marketing as a finished mastered product. This song is mastered and produced very well. I suggest you take time and invest but not your money. All good publishers will give you a deal with a release clause. Always get a release clause as you would on selling a house because not all agents know where to advertise or even have buyers for your home. A song is intellectual pieces of property and you as lyric writer own 1/2 of the song as the music writer owns the other 1/2. You must have a written partnership agreement with co writers that gives you both protection which I am sure you have. Great team and good job. Now the hard work begins.

Quote From Pro: This recording is a keeper-) Do try to market this song. Also I hope you continue your partnership of lyric & music writing as you have a good combination. In hope, once the spark is found, the fire of your work should burn a long time with singers of Texas country music that need song material. Remember it's also an opinion based business. It's the marketing investment that each intellectual piece of property requires and more to invest the easier to work with any song. We know that songs are all inheritable pieces of property & valuable to the future of American Songwriters to continue creating good product. Thank you for letting me hear and review your "Still Enough" / "Give you my love" song. This also is one of my first pro reviews for Broadjam of a country song that I've finished without finding any notable errors. Yippie! Thank you for it was a pleasure that you shared your work with me as I look forward to reviewing any more of your work in the future. God bless.
