Great patience with the production. Always a pleasure to find one of your tunes on the front page.

Simple effects on the vox, but very effective. What was your secret with the vocals?

Hey, thank you again!

With the vocals, I had some really good luck this time layering a couple of takes with a fairly deep reverb, plus using one that was hard-tuned paired with another more raw take - it gives them a thick sound that stood out well, I think. Glad you enjoyed it!

I did. Thanks for the insights. As you know, I'm a singer myself, so I'm always looking for little techniques to get better recordings. -s

Strong showing as usual, Ian. How is your ground game going? Hopefully you're getting your due on the local airways!

Any time I listen to the top 40 radio and then hear your stuff, it reminds me that when you get your shot, your stuff is going to blow up on there!

By the way are you getting to play out live much, if at all?

Thanks, man. I've been working lately on getting some local stations to play my stuff on their indie blocks. WTOS is going to drop one of the songs next week, and a tiny station in Rockland played a song last week. It's slow going, but every bit counts. No live shows yet, but I am considering forming a band if I ever find the time.

Cool. Keep pushing with the local stations. IT's a headache, I know, but keep pushing. I promise you your suff is ready to break, but you've got to make sure to get it out there to these local stations. If possible, visit in person. The college stations, too. You've put in the work on composition and recording, the last push is often the hardest, but keep pushing!!!

Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Ian Marquis for “Pretend”:
Awesome harmonies, Ian! Did you ever end up bringing in your CD to the local college radio stations? I could really see this stuff blowing up on college radio, much more interesting than the top 40 stuff out there right now. Thanks! -sho

Hey, thanks! I haven't had a chance to do as much promotion as I'd like lately, but I am gearing up for a new round of sending the CD out to as many people as possible. Recently, I've been doing a lot of promo on reddit.

Gabrielle gave feedback to Ian Marquis for “Tomorrow”:
I was expecting the song to build to a loud, dramatic chorus like an 80s rock ballad, but I liked the softer chorus. I like the song. Lyrics are good too.

Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Ian Marquis for “Recursive”:
I like the effects you've got on these vocals. Very neat composition, overall. Somehow, I feel as if there's a little extra energy that you could put into the vocals -- from a performance perspective.

I'm a vocalist myself, so I know that that might sound kind of vague. Again, I think that this is a very good piece, and very well produced. I'd like to hear just a good bit more conviction in the vocal performance. Very exciting, and very promising. Thank you. -Shoham

Hey, thank you! I'm not the strongest singer, so I try to do what I can with my voice. Sometimes I don't know how far I should push it. Sometimes I don't know how far I CAN push it. But I'm glad you liked the track!

This is really fucking cool. I like the guitar tones you got going on in this track and how the verses just go full on 80s. Very nice.

Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Ian Marquis for “Melody”:
Weird stuff, Ian. I like it though, very progressive sound, more so than your other stuff that I've heard on here. I like what you've done with the vocals especially :D

Did you ever end up getting your stuff played on the radio out there in Maine?
