    Alright so I've been trying to branch out more and experiment with writing about different things. Usually I write about sex, mental issues and cutting myself. I decided to start writing about my sexuality and not just having sex. So here's two songs I've come up with. I pretty much wrote both of them in jail and I've been tinkering with them every since. I want your guys honest opinions on the songs from what you can gather. I know I sing weird and no I don't know why I sing with an accent. Everyone always says I sound British or something, whatever:

    Yes, the video opens from the link.

    Kudos to you for putting your talent out there. I don't think you sing weird at all.
    Your writing style and delivery sounds like it would lend itself to a theatrical genre....are you writing a musical? If not, you should!

    No these are just songs me and a few others may perform.

    I've done musical theater before. A lot of it actually. Probably why it sounds kinda showtuney lol

    Thanks. I've been trying to find someone to help me out in that department but no luck. I might just do it myself.

    You have a great voice, MisfitToy. icon_wink.gif

    I enjoyed the first song; the second one, though, didn't get to me.

    lol, I always wanted to be able to sing like that.

    Here's part two to that video. Well technically it's a different video but you get what I mean.

    Let me know what you guys think. Don't hold back.

    I'm assuming you're using a webcam mic? If so, just know that's the worse kind of mic to record the human voice ever created. Even so, I can tell you have a good singing voice. With the proper recording equipment and maybe some singing lessons, my guess is you would sound a bit like Tracey Chapman. You both have that androgynous voice that can add an interesting quality to an already good voice.

    Yeah I recorded that on my iPad. I've been considering singing lessons. I used to think I didn't need them but I figured why not give it a shot and see what I can learn? I don't know all there is. I like Tracey Chapman a lot. Her voice that is. I don't listen to a lot of songs but when I hear one I don't turn it off.

    What did you think of the songs and the lyrics themselves?

    I had a hard time understanding the lyrics, so my comment was mostly on your voice itself. But lyrics can be stolen so easily, that's probably a good thing at this point.

    Lol you have a point.

    I was trying to so hard to pronounce every word. Lol it's difficult when I'm running the different harmonies and the music in my head and trying to focus on what I'm actually saying.

    Agree with others that the sound and delivery are more suited to the stage / musicals than stand alone performance music.
