I'm a solo bedroom recording artist recording on an 8 track and love all creative song based https://www.tradebit.com't like to be limited by genre,but i'm probarbly acousticelectricpsychedeliclounge-folk-jazzin'pop/rock i guess if its gotta be narrowed down..
I live in a 24/7 fantasy music bubble in a flat in Birmingham UK and like going for long walks in the sunshine making up songs in my head.. when i'm not sitting at the computer surfing and getting red eye'

Am an incredibly passionate and sincere dilettante,which sounds like a contradiction in terms i know,but for me it feels true..

In Luv W My Therapist (from IAC)

Song Comments
The Talent Searcher
They are Ison and Aprilcartney, the new amazing songwriting team at Iac. This song drink in the wells and fountains of pop and seem to drink them slowly. Every one that goes sha la la la have heard a lot of 50s and 60s records. When you hear good pop like this, you start to think: oh wow. The song talks about transference between patient and doctor , something quite normal cause the patient begins to idealize the shrink but later they find about it , the truth is the therapist is like anybody else ....

This is a really great tune, with terrific vocals (Steve April) and superb lyrics (Steve Ison) and top notch musicianship by both artists. It is so fun to listen to this energetic and well crafted song . It has a great bridge and buildup back to the main head of the song, and so well produced and engineered too. it kicks in as a rocker from the 70's and the song grabs you right off from the top. Love the harmonies and little vocal shots here and there Steve really lays it all out on this one and gives a solid performance and it is no wonder the song hung around so long at the top of the charts at IAC.....Freedom Lovers

Hey! I wanna date this girl!...oh, thatâs right...she died in a snow-blurry car wreck... All the un-usual musical fare 'blooming' out of this magical song from the dynamic and theatrical songwriting craftsmen April/https://www.tradebit.com is it... Ison/April?...doesn't https://www.tradebit.comy're on the same team here as they draw the listener from a light-hearted intro...instantly into a vaudeville memory of a feisty gal and her untimely death. was she April's lover? April and Ison's clever humor will probably prevent us from ever knowing... but just like 'poetry-in-motion', the 'Late Bloomer' lady, a clandestine love affair..(?), and even this song must come to a musical, story-book end. Not to worry though... we always have the 'play-button' to enjoy them all again! What a wonderful Surprise from partners of Musical Life... here at IAC!

The second song by Ison and Aprilcartney is a sweet ballad in the southern vein but very musical and a tambourine doing the rythm https://www.tradebit.coms is the kind of song you listen when you think your nirvana is coming, peaceful, melodic and full of musical sense and sensitivity. Tellin Stories, beautiful. Get ready for new stuff by the IsonApriles band.

60's influence all over this song. It is short but catchy and cool (awr). Yeah. I immediately saw the image of John Sebastian in my mind as soon as the vocal kicked in. It just doesn't get more 60s than that (thh).

LIFE AFTER LIFE
The 2 Steve's are at it again with a quirky, melodic song about those who love and dwell and tell their yarns and stories to spice up a vacant life...for all those who lend an ear and in this one, Ison somehow comes up with that gypsy vibe string thing that give the whimsical lyrics of April a storybook melody ride they well deserve. Nice work by the Collabro bro's!

Damn. I'll confess to harboring more than a little jealousy when confronting the skill with which Messrs. April and Ison collaborate...the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful results takes the sting out though...kudos, Gents, keep it rockin'...

Gypsy Annie (IAC)
Song Comments
{{{{ THE FEEDING TUBE }}}}
You are caught in the air by Gypsy Annie, timeless street artist who catches the eye and mind of Ison/April who, with their music, transport you to the summer street scene and even bedroom scene in...Mexio? You guess as the Spanish flavored horns, congas, guitar and cello send your mind spinning among the street hawkers and oblivious merchants as Annie draws you into her arms!

The heat of the crowd propelled me onward...inna daze I heard the voice of the street-corner performer and paused, the swirl of her dress as she danced captivated me as her voice danced upon the broken noise of the scene, and then she walked away with the silent stranger in the fedora hat and dark sunglasses. I never saw her again...often I return to that heartless street corner...listening for her voice...hoping to catch even a glimpse of Gypsy Annie but am greeted only by the lonely and broken street life...in the night...in the day...that Summer;..oh, that Summer!

LEGENDARY MUSIC
Who says a leopard never changes its spots!! In the world of music, everything is possible!! I've just tossed my cowboy hat high into the air and grabbed my sombrero and old maracas that have been hanging for ages on the back of the door. I've just been swept away, south of the border down Mexico way into this musical fiesta fantasy. The streets are teeming with joyous partiers clapping and dancing to and fro following dozens of Spanish horn players and colorful Flamenco guitarists. Flags and multi-colored ribbons are flying everywhere. This is The Brass Ring making love to The Tijuana Brass and the Gypsy Kings, and Coney Island and Circus Circus dressed and wrapped up as Disneyland, all at the same time!! What a day!! Even the puffy white clouds look for all the world like little mountains of Whipped Cream. What a delight!! Old Rascal thinks I've just lost my mind, but he's running around in circles here in the cabin and seems to be enjoyng this just as much as I am. The imagery in these lyrics is just as amazing and "sweet" as the memories portrayed here of being "found" by the mysteriously enchanting Gypsy Annie. Great lead and wonderfully effective background vocals, awesome musicianship and beautiful arrangement. What else can I say!! Steve, I wandered all up and down your playlist here several times, listening and looking inside my mind for the song that I wanted to transport to Legendary Music, and there was just no way I was going to leave without taking "Gypsy Annie" home with me. Folks, if you don't get lifted up and carried away with this great song, you might just have a problem. As for me, my day is now complete. With all the dancing around the cabin, Rascal and me are going to be calling it an early night. We've just been treated to some great music. Thank you Steve, both of you!! Welcome to Legendary Music.

I went to Steve's page to find a song to add and just couldn't decide. There are so many wonderful tunes there that, if you haven't heard him, I urge you to go and have a terrific half hour cruise. If you have heard him, you know. This tune is indicative of Steve's mastery of style.

Seductive motion. A different traveling spin on Steve's usual haunts while still maintaining that magical element that is unique to only Steve. He has a quality in his voice that cannot be replicated as well, and yet you might think you've heard his songs somewhere before due to the classic nature of his songwriting. He is an evolution without disregarding those timeless qualities that one either possesses or not. He got it in droves and still dares to be himself. A brilliant artist for certain.

Great Mariachi feel ... The song has great atmosphere. The only thing I would have added to create more of a narrative feel would be to mix in some "crowd noises" to give it more a live feel especially during the "claps/dance" scene.

"Steve has a real magic touch Step By Step is a little miracle of a song, the instrumentation is so lush, the vocal so catchy, the harmonies are totally groovy. I'm often reminded of David Bowie, I think it's the novelty of the changes and the delightful instrumentation. This is one of those songs that sounds familiar not because it's derivative, but because it's tapping into that rarest of veins where only the most deft songwriters are able to dig for gems!"....From ALL THE BEST
