Milton Keynes Songwriters Wanted To Impress Music Industry Judges – Feedback
John – Lovers Lane; This was a nice upbeat song with a catchy chorus but would benefit from more light and shade throughout. Click here for more advice on musical dynamics.
Dawn – You had some good repeated phrases but would benefit from producing a backing track to accompany your performance. Click here for more information on recording studios – choosing the right recording studios.
Lesley – Take Me As I am; This song had a nice melodic start to the verse and a good chorus but now work on giving it more of a hook. If I had a chance; This was a nice song with lovely lyrics and a nice shape to the chorus. Game of Life; This was a nice, strong song but needs stronger vocals at the chorus. Click here for live performance opportunities which will help you practice this.
Casha – It’s Started; this was memorable with a sing-a-long chorus. You now need to work on making the melody and hook more obvious. There; This song had a nice starting lyric and we liked the contrast in it. Now work on making it move and develop quicker. Nothing more; This is a nice soft song which conveys a lot of emotion. It would benefit from strengthening the melody and build; potentially look to have less plucking and more strumming. The chorus was strong but the verses could now be built on.

Tom Lumley – Hide and seek; This song has a contemporary feel with nice quirks and a good chorus. It would now benefit from having a stronger hook/melody.
