About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
The music I write has been described as Psychedelic Folk Noir, Neoclassical, Darkwave, Post-Rock and Film music. I've been producing music under the name 'The Mad Pride' - which is most commonly compared to Syd Barrett, David Bowie, Radiohead, Leonard Cohen, Frank Zappa, Erik Satie and Danny Elfman. If you're into composition for piano you may prefer to listen to 'Malice' and 'Monsters' more than my guitar-based songs. One of the recurring themes in my music is advocacy for Neurodiversity.

"Hey, Rowan! Thanks for the kind words! You have an incredible voice. Reminds me of early Opeth :) The music is great, as well. Definetly, my kind of thing. Eerie, dark and intense. Keep up the great work!"

Hi Rowan,

I've just listened to your songs, 'Siren Song' and 'Shipwreck'. I really liked the original sound in them both, particularly the distinctive range and tone of the voice. Had you ever thought of bringing the level of the voice up in the mix even further? I think it's so good that it needs even more exposure.

All the best,

Alex :)

Hiya Rowan. Sorry it took like three years to respond to your request, but I don't drop into these forums as often as I should, and I almost didn't notice the request notice anyway. So you're from Oz, eh?  Cool. I have a few friends via the 'net from Down Under. Recently I've been exploring some of the music of Colin Hay. He's a very good song writer and is lucky to have the voice he does. Maybe I'll see ya on the boards here.

All the best,

Michael

Your music has nice things going on in the layers. That was my favorite quality of Elvis Costello and the Attractions - good orchestration. peace

Rowan, Thanks.  I'll have to work on the percussion and bring it into to virtual instruments and then repost.  I appreciate your comments, and any advice.
