Date with a Demo #2

Okay, well I took Free Spirits to SAC’s Date with a Demo tonight.

I got some positive feedback from the panel members, John Acosta and Ron Lopata, both local songwriters/producers. John was kind enough to see a Gordon Lightfoot feel to my song/voice, and Ron said it evoked a Van Morrison vibe for him… so, so far, so good…

BUT, they both felt the song’s chorus was a pre-chorus and not an actual chorus… so more work needs to be done although the last line of my chorus – The only true free spirit here is me – did withstand their scrutiny, they just wished there was a bigger payoff in the chorus. All in all though, very encouraging…

I will return…
