Love Takes A Little TimeNice song and great lyrics. This song is relevant to everyone because love does take a little time. You have a bluegrassy thing going on in spots and I like it. Well done and I enjoyed listening to this song.
ReviewThis song has a great tempo and and melody that is very catchy to the listener. It also has that 60's throwback sound to it but in today's rhythem to give your theme a great sound. I also, like how you referenced your parents take on love. The older couples sure did know how to make relationships work and last. Very good, up tempo tune that has a positive vibe.
Love Takes A Little TimeHi Erik, great job. The instruments blending together in this tune are truly great...not to mention the vocals, and the harmonies. I've listened to your song a good few times, and really enjoy it every time I listen to it. I'm really looking forward to hearing more of your tunes on N1M, and I'll be here to support you each and every way I can. Thanks for sharing some really good stuff on N1M. Cheers
InterestingThis type of sound reminds me of the sounds of the 60s but with a bit of a modern twist. It has that country yet swing jazz feel at the same time with a hint of soul. The instruments accompany the lyrics and the vocals perfects. Such a beautiful sound. It all fits like a puzzle. I’m always on the hunt for sounds like this and I think I have found my calling. Don’t ever stop making this type of music. The world needs more of it.

Love Takes a Little TimeErik. Ohhh the plight of us humans. lol You definitely have your own musical style, which is good. Just when a person thinks that you will be going down to a note, you go up. lol You have a very nice mellow, but strong voice. I like the banjo intro. The harmonies are great. Is that you? ;) Your lead guitar, which is well played, might be just be a little over-active through-out the verses; maybe consider more of a calmer chorded progression through the verses, with maybe some softer fills at the end of your vocal phrases. Keep up the awesome work my friend. :) Blessings, Trev.
Vocals are my main concernThe song isn't commercial but it's cute. The vocals aren't ready. You need intense breathing lessons. The securing of notes. Warm ups and so forth. Your ornamentation is odd sounding and makes you sound pitchy. You atleast need a year of basic voice control, posture, all of the main points are being violated. If you listen to me you will be glad you did. This isn't ready at all and I think you know oit.
Good fun country ragThis has everything - bouncy rhythm, harmonies, lapsteel, fiddle, and a catchy chorus. Harks back to Irish folk tunes, while evoking Sweetheart era Byrds. Gram Parsons would be proud. Lovely stuff!
Nice non-Nashville country music (the best kind)While the overall concept borrows somewhat from Motown's Smokey Robinson and his 1961 classic "You Better Shop Around" this piece is a fun bit of off-Nashville country. The instrumentation is excellent but I believe it will require a voice with some traditional country chops in it to execute it to its top potential. Just as long as it stays real country and does not get over Nashville'd in the production, it has hit potential with people who enjoy country in its purer form.
