"Hi Tony, It's a pretty power-pop tune, well produced. The only critique I would offer is that it sounds similar to other things I have heard in this genre. Thanks for sharing! Gav"

Tolo - "Dreamchaser"

Good evening from a nicely warming up Johannesburg... So back to the guitar. This is a tune I wrote and recorded about my personal journey that led me to South Africa - not an easy one at times, but mostly full of love, courage and ultimately - at the end as we stand today - triumph. Again - as in 'Yellow Rose' - please live the passages and stories that lead to the final reveal. Thanks in advance - feedback always appreciated - of any kind.Stay wellTony…See More

Tony Lowther replied to Joost Visser's discussion Looking for suggestions
"Very enjoyable Joost - I love the quirky vibe and the almost schizophrenic bass. Expertly played too - with a really lovely, bright piano. For me it could almost have opened up at the end, by letting it roll a little more - kind of like the…"

Hello folks - a big one for you all. There are chapters in this tune and in order for the ending to make sense - you should pass through them all.

"Thanks for taking time to listen Gav - you are bang on with some of my influences as a musician. Yes - I wanted to keep it simple melodically - as there is so much going on in the arrangement... but I hear you and will experiment! Thanks again."

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I write, record and produce my own original instrumental music - from my studio here in Johannesburg. Originally from England - I have lived in South Africa for the last 7 years. A self taught guitarist first - I am finding that my work is becoming more and more heavily scored, complex and orchestral - but still with a significant element of guitar based melodies, textures and tones. I also love to mix more contemporary synthesizer sounds and pulses into the work - something that is evolving with each piece of writing. I am still looking for a break in writing something for a movie - something I would really love to do...
