I have been privileged to write lyrics for and with these guys!
The first rocker off the production line with Klaus Kappes (aka Kappi from Kloudworks) Our motto is going to be: 'Write and record fast and keep it real'. Hopefully, we will get young bands interested in covering this stuff as it's not that hard to play live. Thanks for checking us out, Jules and Kappi
With great courage and no sense whatsoever I have put up an old roughcut of MARGARET .... Can he get any worse I hear you ask?... Well I'm working on it!!! lol Now you know why I work with so many talented and gifted musical writers and producers... to avoid this kind of car crash demo! Forgive me... Jules
Zee Zakima! What a truly awesome songwriter and human being that guy is. I'm shellshocked at how great he is. Listen to CLOSING TIME about the sad passing of his wife and make sure you have a big box of tissues on hand. This guys got a soul deeper than the dark river he mentions in one of his songs. I'll never stop listening to this guy and I think you should to. Welcome back to songwriting Zee - I think you are one of the truly great ones. Bigtime Respect, Jules
Big changes are afoot..... Some of my co writers are quite right that we should create our own specific RN sites - differentiating who has written what with who.
This is because we are now getting a lot of high quality mastered songs on the way - and this site aint big enough for all of us! lol
Soon there will be a site for:
'Ken Lintern and Julian Wilson Songwriters' -
'Paul Dunn and Julian Wilson Songwriters' - and
'John Hoeve and Julian Wilson Songwriters'
I will of course be keeping this site as well for my forthcoming solo songs and co writes with others.
I will keep the co write songs already up on here, but the other sites will expand and will only have radio ready recordings on them.
The plan is to expand the empire and to get individual songs and albums of high enough quality to make available for sales.
!5 years and still at it! lol
Hope you guys will come along for the ride! Thanks for your support - I appreciate it!
A big music production from Ken Lintern and Lyrics by myself. Looking for a cover - You will need a massive voice for this one though!. It's about how greedy commercialists ruins the earth for themselves and everyone else. It gets deeper the more times you hear it. This has got to be one of the high water marks of my lyric writing - My heart was bleeding when I wrote it - and Ken came back with that great escalating chord sequence. That's why I love working with the guy - He's an awesome tunesmith! Ken will consider helping with backing tracks IF your voice is big enough! Jules
Very shortly, Paul Dunn will have finished having our new song "I Believe In Love' mastered featuring the wonderful high octane vocals of Mikalene - Celine Dion country...but mellower. Man, that girl can really sing, she's also a great songwriter herself which is a terrific compliment for us that she wanted to sing it. Check her out - She's worth it! Jules
Paul Dunn has finished a new mix of 'One Day' sung by John MaCauley. The older version has also been moved right to the bottom of the player. It took me a few listens to realise that in this new mix, Paul has made the build up slower and the Hammond Organ really causes greater dynamics throughout the song - Especially when the drums kick in. Best listened to with the cans on to hear the sbtle differences.
thanks for listening! Jules
Full albums coming within months! My cowriters who are far better at recording than me are committed to make it happen very much sooner than later. 14 years of work is about to suddenly explode onto Amazon methinks... lol
Things are coming together very well now. After all these years of writing and co writing, most of my co writers are now capapble of recording and mastering to a high level and the others are not very far behind.
That's the biggest significant event in my songwriting history - because from here on in EVERYTHING we do will be ready to put to radio.
Songwriting (if you are planning to try and make a living from it) is a very hard road to follow. It starts off really easy if you are a prolific - but writing the songs is the EASY part!
You start off with hardly any gear - maybe a guitar and a cassette recorder and stumble forward from there. These days computer based recording is a lot easier quality wise but it's still a great struggle.
We have some great songs coming up soon now - I hope you will stick around to hear the climax of around 14 years struggle.
If I don't make a penny it will still have been worth it working with the co writers I now work with.
I'll let you know when the next song is in!
Cheers, and thanks once again fro your continued support!
