Very nice Jake. I liked the 2nd and last tracks best. I also thought they were the most Accessible/Commercial. When I was on the road gigging with my band in the 80/90`s We always found that apart from covers the most successful stuff we did was definitely "aimed at the feet". This Ep has a nice mix of listenable-dancy stuff.
I don`t envy your job trying carve a niche in the so called music biz of today but I think that if you keep your band format strong and introduce as many guest vocalists as you can then perhaps you may "strike it lucky".
The other thing I think would also consider would be having a Guitarist in your lineup. Someone who could give you a funk vibe and also a little blues or jazz input in the songwriting dept.
you`d have to change the name of the group of course
Very Very Good, a good mix very well played by all Musician's. A pleasure to hear such musical skills by such young guy's.
You should be very proud of yourselves, and the very best of luck to you all.
Had a listen to most of the tracks, the production quality is superb along with the playing. Refreshing is the word to describe this music.. Personally I loved what I heard.. In earlier posts I noted suggestions on maybe getting in a guitarist ? do you want to change your vibe? I wouldn't, but that's just my opinion! Guest vocals may be a good idea for commercial success, just watch out, some can be Divas! maybe it's just from my experiences All round I thought this music was superb. I'm very jealous of the saxophone chops!! Thank you for sharing this with us. Inspiring...
