....pointing out flaws in other peoples cover songs, I figured that I should pay the piper, and let you all hear some of the songs that I have managed to butcher.

No effects, no crap, just me, a cheap guitar, a keyboard, and an old school 8 track recorder (I can't stand faking it)

Enjoy! Laugh! Heck, even a couple of Guffaws may be in order.

Peace.

Dude, you've actually got a pretty fine voice. My first instinct was to liken it to Brian May but you've got a bigger timbre to yours (if that's the right word??)
On 2nd thought I actually don't know who you sound like, and that's probably a good thing to be able to boast as a singer

Good work, seriously.

Those are some pretty decent covers. Space Oddity is my favorite. I really like the tone of your voice. Do you write as well?

Wow...those are actually really good. I have to be honest and admit that I'm a bit shocked. The timber of your voice is really nice and you can put emotion into it without making it sound like you are struggling for the notes (or being strangled).
Good job!

I'm digging your Space Oddity, Dan. : )

I'm kinda surprised you don't look more like Haystacks Calhoun or Bob Ross . . .

You voice reminds me a little of Justin Hayward (which is good :P).

I liked the versions.

I thought maybe a little bit like the singer from Styx? Good harmonies. You must have fun with your recordings.

my god dan, that is the best cover of 'love of my life' i have heard so far!!!


bravo!!!

you have an excellent voice. it gives me hope that when i see people do covers that there are some good voices, and with quality 'cheap' equipment-which is something i cant hold a candle to, since im poor :)

and to have such patience to record the harmonies so well! im sincerely impressed.

again, bravo!!!



ive been sick, but iove wanted to do amy + mark ronsons version of 'valerie' and 'plush' by STP for fun :)


why pay the visit when the visit is free?

Again, thank you all for your kind comments. Yes, I do have a lot of fun. It helps keep me somewhat sane.

I would like to submit my cover of LOML to the stage of champions, but whom to I send it to?

Regarding originals, I'm not a writer. But, just give me the song and I'll sing it like I mean it. I'd like to be able to get into the right original project, provided, of course, someone could write good songs...ha!
