Long-time singer-songwriter, but I haven't really made much of an effort to do much with my songs. I'm mainly a singer, my guitar skills are pretty mediocre. I have an album of old material in the works, and now I'm trying to be more focused and dedicated on making new music and learning how to record and mix. I love writing lyrics; they're like open-ended word puzzles.
Constructive criticism is welcome, especially on song structure and instrumentation/mixing.
Hello, thanks for your comment on my song A veces
Likewise! Really had fun with this. Sending you a message on songcraft also.
Thank you so much for the kind words on Terra Firma. I agree that putting lyrics together is like an open-ended word puzzle and look forward to listening to your tunes.
Thanks for listening and commenting on 'The Glint'! I love your production ideas, definitely gives me some direction!
Thanks for the kind mentions! I appreciate them a lot, coming from another cool songwriter such as yourself...! Im glad you like them. The 60s vibe is mainly just a combination of the 4 track cassette recordings and then the stuff I digitally overdub is smashed with tape plugins. So it all sounds old and mangled ha ha.
Thank you for commenting on my songs and the feedback is greatly appreciated ! 😀 I wish I had more to show for this month, but thank you for your kind words.
Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments. Means a lot. 💗
😀 Glad you liked my creepy lyrics and references!
Prolific and/or a little nuts 😀
Thanks for listening! I will try to get to some of your stuff over the next while. The kids are at school and I have the day off so it's a quiet time for recording.
Thanks for the comment on "Monolithic Halls"! I've been doubting my lyrical skills lately, like why can't I come up with stuff as good as I did 10 years ago, but it's moments like this that I realize it's just been lack of effort and inspiration and that I am still capable when I put my head and heart into it.
Thanks so much for the comments on Straight Chartreuse and Blue Valentine. I love that "Valentine alternative" lyric too and was considering having that be the name instead since there is that movie Blue Valentine but I've kind of been going with a color vibe so far for fawm, and made more sense with the "you're too busy being blue" chorus. Is the movie good? (If you've seen it). Maybe I should watch it so I know what weird scenes people are thinking about when they listen to my song hahah
Thanks for the comment on "Swimming in the Sun"! I got the same feeling that it could be put to a movie scene (and I did make a looping video clip to put it to on my instagram now (@jorge_vallentine). Gave me kind of a "Killing Moon" vibe from Echo and the Bunnymen or Bass Drum of Death's "Way Out". I think I wanna go more into that spacey fuzzy sound with more songs and see what happens.
Sure, feel free to send me an email at email@example.com and I'll try re-inviting you. Maybe I got your email wrong. Thanks!
Awesome! I like using this songcraft.io platform for writing together. (It's like a shared google doc but for songwriting). I went ahead and e-mailed you an invite so we can work on something together there. If you have any other way you want to communicate though feel free to let me know!
Thank you for your comment on "The Devil's Rain"! Do you do collabs? I loved "Scorpion Boy" and I feel like we have a similar enough style we could come up with something cool together if you're up for trying something out!
Hi and thanks for stopping by my page and commenting on "Puzzled"!
Thanks for listening to my crown chakra loop! Looking forward to hearing your creations 😀
