Why are some artists bold in the archive? What are the parameters? I am curious.

I was asked by Lunkhead to state my preference here for night of performance. I don't really have a preference. I think I'm just doing a solo acoustic thing so anytime is fine.

Re: Nur Ein XIV, Final Round: Survival

Hey Everyone. Just returned from Disney World. 🤪 Hence, my sudden disappearance and radio silence. Congrats to the winners and finalists! I’ll try to come back next year with my “A game”! Still adjusting to family life vs. creative life. (Plus trying to be a published composer which surprisingly net...

That’s really not my principal point. I’ve accepted that I may be ranked high by one judge and low by another. Having a more difficult time reconciling praiseful reviews and being ranked second and fourth to last.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Four "No Memory"

Well, I guess it's time for me to head on down the road. I was talking to Grumpy Mike yesterday and I told him my goal for this Nur Ein was pretty much just to get back on the horse again and write some songs. Which I did. And I think two of them are pretty decent, but I'm not quite back to my old s...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Five "Where The Streets Have No Name"

I understood what you meant. You can’t have a scene in a bar where the jukebox is playing “where the streets have no name” and you can’t have a lyric where you say “we danced all night to where the streets have no name”, etc. This isn’t a hard challenge to understand, just to pull off. But I actuall...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Five "Where The Streets Have No Name"

Do you mean "No other U2 references"? Isn't titling the song "Where the Streets Have No Name" and/or using that in the lyrics a U2 reference...? Contrary to popular belief, those six words existed before that song! ;) I mean, it's not like the title is "Hey Jude" or "Bo Diddley". But yes, of course...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

Do you do any vocal exercises before recording? While you’re still feeling the effects of the sickness, it can help ease your folds into vocalizing. Even just humming 5 note scales throughout your range with a nice deep supported breath can help your confidence of tone. My vocal regimen consists of...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

Frankie Big Face: I really like this one. The beginning/verses remind me strongly of “can’t fight this feeling,” so I really don’t get the musical theater vibe you were talking about. My favorite thing about it is how you go from the verse to the chorus, bringing the vocals to the front and filling...

can i just defend myself: the "i missed out" is a sample, i did copy it straight across, pitch shifted two copies to form the harmony, promise!! Uh, you won.

BTW, I have been to Madison and it is a charming little city. I don't think of it as a tourist attraction - just enjoy the vibe. (Maybe I'm wrong about this - happy to be shown otherwise!)
