Jerry Herrera and The Dusty Roads Band / Jerry Herrera & THE DUSTY ROADS BAND / Jesus Is A Friend Of Mine
HelloI'm not sure about this song..I Like The Lyric..but not much else..sound like "working Demo in Progress"..so there is an Idea in It but some work Must be done ..arrangement.. Vocal.. Recording Quality..so whenall is done is possible this will be a nice song..but is not important what I'm thinking.. send It out to Music Publishers and Radio Stations.. and let's see what They will say.. ( but do not be surprise if They will AGREE with me..I whis You Good Luck..
Repetitive ToshRepeating the same few words over and over again is irritating. Strange to say but I think Mr Herrera's voice has improved slightly on this recording. It is not my cup of tea and I do believe that he might be boasting about having friends in high places. If Jesus starts singing that Jerry Herrera is a friend of his, i will admit my mistake. There is no doubt that he takes his religion very seriously, as nearly all of his songs are about it. I think he would do a great job of Show Me The Way from The Prisoners' Songbook but I'm only guessing. One day he will get things spot on and I wish him well.
A friend that sticketh closer than a brotherInvigorating blues rock song with a cool flow - I like music with conscious meaning, and although I left the Catholic Church more than 30 years ago, I can relate to the words of Jesus, as far as we can reach to the real meaning of his unaltered teachings. In fact he inspired and accompanied me in one way or another since I was a little boy - so I too can say: Jesus is a friend of mine ;-) Well done, Jerry, keep it rollin' - Cheers, Rob
Jesus is a friend of mine tooClassic blues, better said gosspel blues....remember my first touch with the US territory, some guys playing music in a church basement...like to hear some backing vocals...not bad, keep going...music is a friend of us
Good pieceI love the grittiness of this song. The style is like reminiscent of Clapton. In the instrumental portion works, but it seems to cry out for the harmonica to be more to the forefront, maybe using an higher key harmonica played in the song. this song ia little long and gets repetitive towards the end. If you cut some of the like phrasing toward and create a bridge toward the middle it would create more interest. The bridge needs to be and unexpected change to surprise the listener and set the stage for the rest of the song. The vocal harmonies flow well with the feel of the song, but each voice seems to doing the same thing. If one of the voices went up an octave it would really full out the vocals well. The message on point and very clear,The lyrics are very clear and concise. What you have here is a good old school style blues piece, that has a strong vibe, with a great message. It has been an honor to review your song. I hope that it blesses you.I closing I feel a lot of heart and souls speaking through your song which I love.
