Thanks to Adam, I have 5 new mp3's on the moosoft website.
You can hear then at      http://mp3.moosoft.net/jamir/

1) Pardon this intrusion ...................lyrics by Maxwell
2) Emerald Eyes ...............................lyrics by Maxwell
3) 2am .............................................SSG2- week 13
4)Portraits of sunset.........................SSG2- week 12
5) Which way does the wind blow... SSG1-week 44

Which way does the wind blow is a revised version and I really think it is worth a listen. I am looking forward to the comments on this one.The backing vocals are done by 9year old Dani-Rose

Portraits of sunset ..... I had a technical problem with and although I have sent the revised version to Adam, he has not gotten around to changing it yet. It is still very listenable though, I just start the song, stop the song and start again about 1 minute in, I was multi pleaxing and forgot to wipe off the first bit , whoooops !!

Please know comments and "constructive" crits are very welcome

Go well

Hello Ja'mir,
I downloaded some of your songs last night and I must say the little girls voice in the background is really really cute, really a very nice effect.
Lovely songs and I love your accent
Regards

Absolutely blown away by these five songs - I think they're superb.  I particularly like the '2am' and 'Which Way does the Wind Blow.'  Very atmospheric collection.

Great guitar work, lovely vocals (the youngster is an inspired choice) and backing tracks very subtly done.

Excellent Stuff  :)

Thank you all for the positive feedback, that should boost my flagging confidence for a while.

Bob,  was 2am anything like you had imagined


Scratch, I haven't a clue who  LOTR  ?? can you enlighten me , and be warned, "Pardon" is Max's favorite song and he will be on the war path with you, to find out why you didn't like it.

Marv,   Seeing we both think eachother have sexy voices, maybe we should re write Midnight Blue and sing alternate verses... promise no accoustic folk, your choice of melody. ( Thanks for the compliment. :-*)

Go well
Ja'mir ;D

It's OK Scratch.  I guess if we had to please everyone all the time with our writing, none of us would ever write a word.  We can't help it if you're the un-romantic type  ;) .

And thanks for the kudos on Emerald Eyes.  Jamir deserves all the credit for the melody there.  I just had the words and didn't know what to do with them.  She has really helped me progress a lot in my skills as a writer of both lyrics and melodies.
