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.

Pro General Comments: Hi Monique -Thanks for bringing this song, and more importantly - what you are doing to my attention. Wow, great song. I really like it. Great session singer - with that Adele quality. Superbly layered BGVs. The production value on this is off the charts good. Awesome guitar solo too. The song itself too is very strong lyrically - and also the main hook / melody. It sounds like a hit song to me! Honestly, I've reviewed a lot of songs on Broadjam, and this song of yours is in my top two or three of all time. The only issue I can find - and it's a minor one... really just a matter of personal taste. I'm a mastering engineer and to me, this song could benefit from the "right touch" on the final mastering. The only reason I took a little off on your score for "Quality of Mix" is because that's the only indicator close to "mastering". The mix itself is actually very good... I wouldn't change that necessarily. I just feel like the final master needs a little more presence than it has... a touch more life, if that makes sense - the high-end mostly. That's it though. That's a minor thing. Otherwise, this song is excellent! Nice work! Good website too... (very important!)

Quote From Pro: "Don't Pass Me By" is possibly one of the best songs I have ever heard on Broadjam. Period. It's just that good. A totally sync license-ready song... I predict we hear this song in some other important places very soon!
