Milton Keynes Songwriting Competition Feedback
Juliette – This song told a good story and we liked the flow of it. Going forwards, potentially look to give the chorus more of a hook as it could be bigger. Click here for songwriting tips – how to write a chorus.
Julie – One More Day; This song had a good verse but the chorus felt more like a pre-chorus. Click here for songwriting tips – how to write a chorus. Goodbye Angel; This song had a great opening and a good use of repetition. The verse potentially has an over-use of harmonies in it.
Dave – Your song was really well delivered and we felt it could be a rock ballad if it was a little slower. The song was well structured but needs more of a hook, try to work on the volume in sections of the song and build on it. Click here for more advice on musical dynamics.
Martina – This was a sweet song with nice lyrics and lots of emotion in it. Going forwards look to work on getting more of a hook in to the song to make it catchier. Click here for more advice on musical dynamics.
Feedback for the Milton Keynes Songwriting Competition
Lydia – This was a strong song which would be great for a musical. It has a good structure – we loved the verse and it has a strong bridge but the chorus doesn’t quite live up to these so going forwards look to work on this. Click here for songwriting tips – how to write a chorus.
George – Even Love; This was a sweet song which has the feel good factor! It had a great structure and good lyrics; we also really liked the short and snappy chorus. Belong here; This song had a lovely rhythm and well defined sections but now look to give it more of a hook. Click here for more advice on musical dynamics.
Lorett – Alone; This was a nice folk song with a cool breakdown and a nice vibe. There was also good light and shade throughout the song. Sandy; This had a nice Spanish guitar rift but needs more of a melody – potentially look to include one vocally rather than on guitar. Click here for more advice on musical dynamics.
Neil – Crossing love; This song had nice lyrical content and good vibes. It made us want to dance! Potentially look to include a breakdown – maybe for the audience to join in with the line ‘burning love’? The chorus was strong but the verses could now be built on.
