Pro General Comments: Really solid contemporary jazz tune. I like the mix of the lead tenor sax and the female background vocal accents. Solid rhythm section and overall arrangement which keeps the listener's attention throughout. Really solid musicianship, the tenor sax player is a great instrument to feature for a track like this and plays some inventive solo lines towards the end of the piece. Nice background vocal arrangements as well. Overall, this fits in well to the contemporary jazz genre that is played in some of the WAVE formats throughout the country.

Quote From Pro: Really tuneful contemporary jazz tune with a wailing and melodic lead tenor sax and nicely sweet sounding female background vocal arrangement. This track would sound well in any type of WAVE or contemporary jazz radio format.

Pro General Comments: Inventive opening first few measures of the composition, slowly bringing the listener into this realm of good feelings throughout this piece. Definitely some unexpected twists and turns of the arrangement and where this piece ends up going. Overall, I felt the composition had an uplifting and positive melodic approach what also gave it an inspirational feel. The track also maintained great sectional contrast between the sections and was able to keep the listener's interest throughout. Really solid string synth sounds and overall string arrangement. Percussion was also very authentic sounding and helped to amplify the overall power of the track. The piece had a definite filmic and visual quality to it, that would lend itself to a film scene where something inspirational, hopeful and aspirational was going on. Overall, very nice work!

Quote From Pro: A very hopeful, inspiring and aspirational composition that would lend itself to any sort of epic uplifting visual in a tv or film production.

Pro General Comments: Hello and thank you for your submission. Really enjoyed this track, had my head bobbing. Theme wise and overall concept is a home run. I love the throwback intro, really gave it a some tension and anticipation, Getting right into it helps a lot especially in an instant gratification era and you deliver. I sort of sense you are holding back a little on the the vocals..they are good be bold be brash, own it and the inspiration that made you write this song!! Definitely do not leave out the vocals! Perhaps re-record them..the part where you sing "please please please" this..this urgency this angst is what I want to hear more of! Think of Robert Smith of the Cure...how his voice is an instrument..he belts things out high, low, soft yells screams, whispers..I want to hear this in you.

Quote From Pro: Flightside's'20 Yard's had me at the intro, swept me away into a head bobbin sway that would make the Turtles happy together!

Pro General Comments: Great song! The simplicity of the instrumentation works for a song with such a great voice and great lyrics... The vocal style is very pop to me. I am really impressed with your voice, very nice texture and very warm and pleasing to the hear. Your vocal range is strong!Lyrics are also strong . The arrangement is excellent.Background vocals are nice..I would have like to hear them a bit more in the mix.The mix is ok, the piano can be a very hard instrument to mix and blend with vocals because of the mid rangeyness of the piano. I would have like to hear a bit more presence in the vocals and a touch more reverb.Yes it is very suitable for film/tv use!Have you considerd adding a cello or bass cello or stand up bass?That could add a bit of low end to the composition without taking away from your vocal melody or your lyrics.Overall I love this song ! I have listened to it already 10 times.Also my 15 year old daughter loves it! I would love to hear more of your music!!Keep doing what you are doing. you sound great and in time your talent and your ablity to learn something new everyday will take you to the next level.Patience is very important.Sorry for the delay!Cortez FarrisCortezrobotcity@gmail.com6468306997

Pro General Comments: a lot of factors go into whether or not a song is commercial. This song is too long for commercial radio but length doesn't enter into the equation if you're pitching this to a music library for use as background music in a television show or movie. Hopefully you asked for and received the individual stem files or individual wave or session files so the music library can make cues and edit this song into shorter sections. The chorus is catchy and memorable but it's also unpredictable because there are three different choruses with three different hooks...He Believed/She Believed and Just Believe in love...my advice is keep the chorus consistent so the listener can sing along without being caught off guard with new lyrics. Your form is verse/chorus/verse/chorus/verse/chorus/verse/chorus/tag...there are very few commercial country songs with three or more verses being played on today's commercial radio. keep your songs short of 4 minutes...the closer to three minutes the better...this is a country song but it's written in more of an Americana folk story song.How does the singer know these intimate personal details of the boys life? Without a connection between the singer and the boy the story lacks credibility. The main problem i see lyrically is the boy becomes a man and still believes in Unicorns etc?? Those metaphors don't work as well as a man as they did when he was a child in my opinion. I like the happy ending...

Quote From Pro: William Larson has the imagination and creativity along with the musical skill to write a catchy memorable and meaningful song.
