Hey Valerie, this is very nice and natural sounding.

Here is some stuff to keep in mind that might help get a bunch of remixes:

- You should try to post vocals without any effects, that will make it much (much!) easier to work with as a producer.

- Try (if you can) singing to a click track at a certain beat per minute (BPM) and then post that tempo with the a cappella

- You also uploaded several other MP3s but they were all blank (no sound) so I removed those records. We’d love to hear them, if you get a chance to upload them again, make sure to use ‘Manage Files’ feature after you upload the first one so they all stay together. (If that’s confusing just let me know and we’ll walk you through how to upload them)

Thank you for your suggestions, Fourstones. It’s tough to be a new kid on the block, but I had to start somewhere, right. I’ll upload the vocals and beats again. I will see if I can get some help from friends on setting tempo with click track with bpm.

You’re a doll. Val

Hi.

It took a while but Briareus jumped in an and did two remixes. Pretty good too as Nu-jazz Ambient and Downtempo. What’s really cool is I’ve been invited to submit a Smooth Jazz Instrumental track version to the Independent Music Awards. Also, I will send one of the remix tracks too. Both are great, but I’m having trouble picking which one! Briareus mixed the Nu-jazz Downtempo version this week at my request. Great guy!

Any way you could give them some visibility & let people know to vote or give their opinion on which one to send? Deadline is Friday, August 21st. Soon!

I’ll be happy & certain to give props to ccMixter if I receive any award for any tune.

Thanks, Val

Hello again, Fourstones.

This just in … “All My Life” Ambient Nu-Jazz song is #23 on the Top Hot Jazz Artists ReverbNation Global Jazz chart: www.reverbnation.com/valoliver.

My samples and the Briareux remix have worked together to make this happen.

Would like to let other ccMixter artists and visitors get some inspiration from this, and about the invitation to submit to the Independent Music Awards this week.

If you’re not the appropriate person to whom I need to submit this news, please let me know who to contact here.

Thanks! Val
