Excellent folk tune from Canada!Without You by OJ The Song Writer (who hails from British Columbia) is a well-written/performed/produced song from the 'folk' genre - whatever that means. It's just a good tune performed very well with nice added percussion about halfway through the tune. Well done!
Nice tune for any time of the dayThis is rather folk Music than rock.... Very nice, although not really too "innovative". For my personal taste the vocals could be a bit more "in the front" and the Keyboard could be a bit further "in the back". But anyway, it´s a nice tune for any time of the day.
Nice JobI love the human element. the guitar is a nice platform. some seems piped, not sure what it is but I'm a live performer so. All in all very nice! keep up the good work and Kudos. see on on stage somewhere I hope!
SmoothThe composition sounds like a classical folk rock ballad. The audio production is good, each instrument is in it's place with no undesired distortion. The violin gives the song additional tenderness and smoothness. The vocals sound great and fit this genre. The chorus part is catchy, and it can be sung by the listeners when it is performed live. I think the song is radio-ready. Yet, a good song to be played as background music when a man is dancing with his girl.
A great listen!This is another Canadian artist that I recommend anyone who enjoys listening to folk music to sit back, relax and enjoy! I was very impressed by the finger picking on guitar that was included in this musical ensemble! A lot of people do not realize what Canadian talent is out there, that they should take the time to listen and enjoy the music that they release! Whether it be an indie artist or professional.. I recommend OJ The Song Writer,, great work!
Without YouWell I like the music and the way it flows, has a good hook, some of the words in the lyrics might be drawn out a tad too much..it is the type of song that gets stuck in your head, which to me is a good thing
just be honestThe request said Just Be Honest. OK, this song is BRILLIANT! It has what every hit song should have, a singable melody, a unique guitar structure that sounds simple, but its not, a bass line that flows and glues it together, and lyrics that are meaningful to everyone who listens. It has a sadness that is not oppressive, but instead, very human. I love the way iconic symbols like, the moon, the sea, and dreams, are brought to their knees when exposed in the same light with the power of true love that has been lost. This is a powerful song. Great Work!
Without You Exhudes calmPleasant tune. Non abrasive and gentle to the soul. Nice ear candy I experienced a little trouble interpreting the lyrics but it may be the accent. ha hah ...The song was well arranged with clean transitions to bridges, chorus's and the likes. Very decent downmix. After a number of plays I was left with a improved tone in my step and a whistle on my breath. Good work OJ. I think overall the song is palatable, fresh and interesting. all and all.............job well done sir.
BrilliantI really appreciate the song writing here as it touches one's soul. The rhythm of the guitar and the melodies blend perfectly together and quite honestly I found myself humming this song immediately after I heard it. It has a nice folk feeling to it and the production was done rather well too. I really appreciate the words written as well as they truly meant something. My only complaint was to have a more complete ending but other than that I loved the song
...the connection of dependence...OJ The Song Writer brings us Without you... an ode to love lost in the vein of Woody Guthrie or perhaps early Simon and Garfunkel. The song has a very soulful musical backing and gives rise to the proper emotional pulling of heartstrings with its meter and melodic line. From a producer's perspective I give high praise to the arrangement and the building and release of tension in the mix. I felt the last reprise could have gone twice... in fact I actually expected it and was surprised when I realized the song was over.
WithYour Song!I love the banjo at the beginning of the song. This is not rock - definitely folk music. Takes me back to the songs when I was growing up from Peter, Paul & Mary. Real story tellers. The arrangement is nice and the quality of the music sounds like like the levels were set right - which, surprisingly, doesn't happen as often as you'd like or hope. I hope you have great success with this song.
