River O' Sweet Honey



 Genre: Gospel

Get Flash to see this player.

When the chorus of this song was sang to me by a greater power ( I like to think), it came with a gospel feel...my band (mates), on the other hand, are more rock influenced. Thus, when we started to arrange it specifically for our band, a soulful rock song was created.

Holy definitely not crap
Now this sounds rather pro!
The vocals were the first thing to grab me (obviously) but pretty much everything here sounds very tight.
There were times where I thought the electric piano, when going to the lowest register it got a bit - how can I describe it - crumpled together? I dunno, it just sounded a bit harsh at times.

But definitely a keeper!

on this sounds great. I love that progression. I love the line, "If money is the root of all that's evil, then I must be a saint because I got close to zero." Great tune all around.

Super nice!
Sweet...I like the rock/gospel combo. This should be a hit. Nice recording. I think the guitar doesn't jump out at me, but maybe that's okay, since I think the piano sort of carries everything. I feel like a chorus of backing vocals would add a nice texture to this, repeating the refrain at the end.

Thanks, but please...
You never know who you will inspire trough the music you create and exploit...I've listened to many songs that aren't "perfect" but have sparked a creative flame inside of me to sit down and write that day. Please don't let anything stop you from getting your music heard.

What a treat!
This is music you usually pay for - it's a sad statement for our recording industry I can get this for free (no I didn't just say that!). Love the relaxed feel. Vocals are outstanding - either way, but especially for a unsigned artist! The structure of the song flows well and since drums, organ and guitar are mixed perfectly there's really nothing left to say but 'thanks' for posting this here on MJ - your music is very refined I'm sure getting you noticed is only a matter of time, exposure and luck (or grace actually, given your description of the songwriting process:). How about iTunes posting this song on Tuesday?! Wonderful, and off I go listening to your other songs!

Playing up the gospel feel
Once the song kicks in, this is a nice gospel rock tune. But I thought the intro was too directionless. Consider using the organ with sustained chords instead of random electric piano, make it more like a recitative like you might hear in a Baptist church setting? Also, the handful of repetitions just before the 4 minute mark deflated the arrangement; more gospel tunes gain energy if they employ repetition. Consider crescendo thru to a climax. The nice lead guitar was building to something cool but then the air was let out, in my ears, anyway.

Your voice sound very good on this. Very enjoyable recording.
