Judging by your profile, you've got quite a drive ahead of you. We live in Kansas City.

Anybody make any new music lately?  Sometimes, when I'm in a slump I learn a new cover.  Today I learned You Outta Know by Alanis Morrisette.  Its sounds fantastic the way I sing it, it really does.

Side note, still after all these years, I just can't picture Alanis and Dave Coulier in a movie theater together.

I write a lot of country/pop-ish music all of the time.  I'll see about getting some links posted on here sometime.  That's if you guys don't care to give it a listen... I'll take any berating anyone wants to give out. :P

I like to throw in a little hint of bluegrass into my music, too.  Also, I'm planning on moving to Nashville later in the year to pursue a career in singing/songwriting, too.  Very excited about that.

Also, NWR_Grant, how did she submit her music to iTunes? I'd like to know how I could get my stuff on there, too.  Thanks in advance!

As longs as its not modern country I'll definitely listen to it and give some feedback.  Post away!

Rachtman, there are a few different ways to get your music on iTunes - I forget which one she used, but I know a very popular one is www.cdbaby.com

Damn, got my hopes up coming into this thread.. (not that Grants post wasn't a nice new piece of music to listen to, just not what I was expecting). Oh, I still plan on buying your album! Just gotta pay some bills first.

I was going through an old drive and found a couple of MIDI files that I transcribed for Power Tab Editor* and thought i should post it em here. When I get my PC up and running again, I'll find a way to upload the files so you guys can hear and critique. These will be tunes from like 2003 when I was just starting out with music, so they won't be great, but its the only stuff I got until I get off my ass and get some new gear to start playing again.

Well, here's a link to my newest song, I Still Love You. ©2010 Ryan Foster

Ryan Clayton - I Still Love You


As I said, I write a lot of country-ish stuff as that's what my voice is more situated for.  And honestly, I just love writing the stuff. I plan on submitting this song in several songwriting competitions coming up soon, as I placed in "Honorable Mention" status in a Billboard Top 100 Songwriting contest earlier in the year. :) This is a much stronger song than the previous ones I've entered.

Anyway, there ya go.

yeah, i really don't like country music. However, i did notice my voice is quite suited for it and have thought of selling out.

Wow it's been a minute! Here's a couple of jams you guys may like.

This first one I made on a whim. While messin' around, I made this cool noise (the first one you hear) and decided to run with it. It's definitely worthy of some ass shaking,

http://soundcloud.com/stogi/k-wise-production-oh-damn

This other one I hummed the chorus before making. I envision a chick singing the chorus all soft and lullaby like. This one I just want to smoke a bizzy to and chill out.

http://soundcloud.com/stogi/k-wise-productions-la-la-la

Check em both out and as always, let me know what you think!

Whatsup everybody, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this at, but I just released my first mixtape a few days ago, called "Take Your Sedation". I'm an underground revolutionist rapper from Chicago looking to spread my music around the world.


Check it out and drop a comment or press the "Like Button" on a video to let me know what you think.

Thirdwar that's some pretty sick ****...I think I've heard the beat for 'Sedation' before.

Anyway, I got a new track:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7668017/K-Wise%20Productions%20-%20Time%20flies.mp3

It's one of the first tracks since having my new studio setup.

On second thought...I keep that DL link to myself unless asked nicely.

@Thirdwar:


I honestly wasn't expecting to like that as much as I did (not that big on the genre) but.. DAAyyyummm son! Showed my love on your youtube page. Best wishes with the career.

@Stogi

Oh Damn - Love it.
La La La - Different yet familiar. I dig it.
Time Flies - how does this song sound so epic and so chill at the same time? (the vocals remind me of "Sleepyhead" by Passion Pit, ever so slightly)

Give it up to her for that one. And BnM, I could tell you what she says but it wouldn't make anymore sense.

As always, I appreciate the kind words.

Here's the first song I've finished off my OST. Imagine a plan being hatched and shown during this song.

Nice.
At first I was picturing some Old New Orleans Swing Dancing in a Night Club and then it switched to some Latin Salsa dancing at a Spanish Villa along the Coast line. Before it was over, the swing dancers and the Salsa Dancers were all at the Villa dancing together. IT was a nice visual.

What program are you using BTW?
I finally have a good computer, good sound setup and a good pair of headphones. I'd like to finally give beat making a shot. It's something I've been wanting to try for over a decade but my computer was **** back in the day.

Haha, yeah you got it. I couldn't decide which way I wanted to go with it so I went with both.

Reason 4 atm. Though Reason 5 came out this year. I've been meaning to upgrade.

If you go with Reason 4. I suggest you download a **** ton of "refills". They are banks full of different sounds and samples.

I need Reason for Dummies.

Seriously. Please link helpful tutorial videos and walkthrough guides for using this program. I've had the manual for years but never installed the program (got it from a friend) and therefore never read the manual. I am lost and there are too many options and things to manipulate. Help!




edit: I got it working, but I'm just playing with the drums for now.

Been in a hell of a good mood lately (probably cuz I'm going to Tanzania soon), so I made a song to signify how light I feel.

https://dl-web.dropbox.com/get/K-Wise%20Productions/K-Wise%20Productions%20-%20Life%20Saver.mp3?w=346bcf4d

I sent it to my brothers and one of them replied with a whole Disney like video idea where all sorts of animals were gathered around a waterhole dancing there ass off. A fat happy looking gorilla started playing the concertina. And then a Tamon looking meerkat came through and started the playing the flute. Needless to say, I was laughing my ass off reading it.
