Fly - Excellent track Roy
Thanks Chris! I appreciate you taking time to listen! Happy Thanksgiving!
Hi Liz - Do You Think.. Beautiful! Chris
"Never Knew" is a really lovely song Chris!
You have superb vocals! Very clear so I heard every word! Delicate Lyrics!
Guitar Music was ideal and had a Paul McCartney aire!
Sounded a bit like, "Julia" (The White Album).
Also had that sound of, "Woman" (John Lennon).
This is a song for inclusion on a quality Album!
Enjoyed it again and again!
Hi Jim, hope all is well. Thank you so much for that very kind compliment, very much appreciated. I'm going to listen to your goods as well. Thanks again, Chris
Chris, Do you recommend specific songs of yours I should hear?
Of mine, I recommend, "The Promise", "Dear Jane", "I See Her Dancing" and "One Night Stand" (either version).
Hi Jim, I just listened to your beautiful music. Love See Her Dancing, lovely!!
Hi Mitch, we had messaged a good while back. Was just listening to your songs.. just one great after another. You are the real deal. Glad I have access to it. Thanks, Chris.
you are so welcome Chris and thank you for all the 5 star reviews my friend! got a new one coming out soon called all the answers, would love to hear your thoughts.
Can't wait to hear it, I'm sure I already know my thoughts on it, as I've yet to hear one song that I did not love. So very impressive.
Hi Mitch, I can't say why it took me so long, but I just listened to the new song All The Answers.. as always I just love what you do, it's all perfect, I'm a big fan. Do you record by yourself? Thanks for the goods Mitch, Chris
Thank you so much Chris, I have so much to be grateful for this year as a new venture has lead me to writing a children's book called Eau and the rainbow. Currently the first version is on Amazon and the second updated version will be published nationally this year. Once that is completed I will return to releasing my 4th album called So Lucky. To date, only one track has been released called Save Me.
I hope to hear from you and as always such a pleasure connecting with you.
That's great, I just looked it up and saw it on Amazon. Good for you, I'm glad things have been well, it's deserved. Chris

Hey I like your "Hard Luck Woman Song" I'm from Philly and write a lot of lyrics. I written many songs, poems, and stories. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if your interesing in collaberating.
Hi Johnny, yes I sent you an email. Get back to me when you can. Thanks, Chris.
Thanks for the outstanding review of "I've Got My Telephone", and yes - it was written as an homage to Steely Dan (with a modern take and humor)
Hey, I'm a good Lycist. I write like songs , poetry, and stories. I like your Hard Luck Woman song. You got a nice mellow voice.
I'd like to send you a lyric but BJ won't let me upload a lyric.
Hi Glen, I'd love to see it yes.
Excellent production. I hear a Steely Dan influence. I mean that as a huge compliment.
Tight production. Well mixed. Enjoyed this song.
Thanks so much Chris for the 5 star ratings on Melancholy Blue and When it Comes, it's very much appreciated.
Hey guys, thank you for your kind words. I just listened to a bunch of your stuff and love it. So nice, I appreciate it.
You're very welcomed Chris. Love what you're doing. Keep up the great work.
I've only listened to a couple of songs, just getting into them as I write this. Very impressed with your writing Chris, keep up the good work. LOVE Henni, terrific song.
Thanks for the A+ review of "I've Got My Telephone", Chris. Kind of fun challenging myself to write a Steely Dan-like tune, but the players pulled it off well.
Hi Mitch, we had connected years and years ago. Just listened to some more of your music, and love it even more. Super talented. Thanks Mitch, Chris Landi

Hey David - sorry I haven't responded till now. Thank you so much for that fine compliment. I never would have expected to hear that, nor have I ever heard it before about my voice. I consider it to be my weak link. But wow, thanks. Your music is so solid and just great - I love the stuff you do. Extremely well put together and as authentic as anything there is.
There's no question I'd be interested in doing something together with you if ya wanted to. You just say the word.
Have a great day and a great holiday. Chris.
Hi Roy, any chance at getting the BJ site to do Instant messaging with other musicians that are online?
Mitch, Thanks for your suggestion. We have had a similar idea on our list for awhile. Trying to get it implemented is the hard part.....Best, Roy
That's a great suggestion Mitch. I like it a lot. That would be very useful Roy. I've been trying to send you an e-mail Mitch, but it's not working. I'll keep trying. I did get your response in short. Thanks, Chris.
hi Chris, try email@example.com bud
Chris I've just realized that Mitch might not see my comment because this is not his home page? Never mind! While I'm here I've just listened to your track "Henni" and what a voice you have! Probably the best voice I've heard in years! Might ask you to write a track with me one day! All the very best to you Too! David
hi Chris, thanks for the kudos! I was a member of Taxi for many years and spent a lot of time and money with them. I was getting on the average of 20 forwards per year. (a forward from taxi means you managed to impress the gatekeepers at Taxi) and now the actual person in charge of the listing gets to hear your song. I really hated that because the reps at Taxi are always the same with very subjective tastes. so if they don't like your music, you'll never get one pass the goalie so to speak.
Broadjam skips the middle man and lets the right people hear the music every time, regardless of weather or not broadjam staff likes it or not.
the last year I was with Taxi, I had only gotten 5 forwards.. leaving little or no chance at all for success. I spoke with a rep there to convey my concerns and he, in so many words told me he would not get in between taxis reps and the members (me). so not only was he telling me he would do nothing to remedy the situation, but he did it in a crass manner. He more or less let me know that I was just a number at Taxi, and an easily replaced customer. Needles to say he lost me that day and I let him know before I hung up it was largely in part to his unprofessional posture he chose to take with me. had he done his due diligence prior to our conversation, he would have chosen his words more carefully as he ate them that day. I literally would spend a couple thousand dollars a year submitting through them and just wanted to know why I was only getting 5 forwards per year as apposed to the 20 or so I had in the past.
Anyway, enough with my rant.. as far as success with broadjam, I have won many small battles along the way via contests and listings they offer. currently I am in the running for about 6 films with one that just selected me for a feature film. keeping my fingers crossed! nothing is a done deal until contracts are signed. MTV has licensed 3 of my songs in the past 2 years but no money from that as of yet either. I can tell you this for sure, As I grow, and my songwriting skills evolve, the opportunities present themselves WAY more frequently.
I hope this helps you Chris.
Hi Mitch, hope you don't mind me commenting on your experience at Taxi! But I have had the same experience as you at Taxi! I would submit at least 15 tracks a month and more often than not I didn't get a forward! Very frustrating when you know the track is bang on target for the client (even if I do say so myself!). Yes! Broadjam is a much more fair system and it's great to hear what the competition is for that submission! I recently had a placement with one of my tunes that didn't even get 50% peer rating? That tune would never see the light of day at Taxi! And like you I'm learning on the way as well as getting tunes placed! All the best to you! David
Awesome David! Thanks for the reply, I don't mind at all.
Hi Melissa - very nice stuff. I really enjoyed it a lot. Chris.
Thank you, Chris!
Hi SJ - I hear the song 'I Like You' constantly on Sirius Coffee House. Love it! Great work. Chris.
Mitch - "I'll See You" - beautiful man, just beautiful. It was perfect.
thanks Chris, the new album will be out before the end of December. as of sunday, The song Save the world was selected for a feature film as well as soundtrack. needless to say, I'm bouncing off the walls here with excitement.
If you get a chance and listen to Pandora, I have my own radio station there if you would like to add that in. Just type in Mitch Siegal and it comes up.
Take care Chris,
Mitch - excellent songs. Just great stuff. I enjoy it tremendously. Keep up the good work. Chris.
Hi Chris, thank you so much. you probably already know this, but, as musicians we tend to be very hard on ourselves. We question constantly, are we as good as we think we are? When i see comments such as yours, It makes me want to continue writing with a vengence!
Thank you again for not only the great comment but the inspirational motivation we all desire.
Yea, hard on ourselves, I know that indeed. There's no doubt you should absolutely keep on writing as you are one of the best I've heard on this site. Are you playing all instruments? Chris.
Yes, the drums are the only element I
Piece in, but they are real drummers.
Chris, Great Work on Coming Home. Very melancholic and wistful, and to me, calls out for lyrics. Sending you a friend Request as Shamong is about as obscure as Bivalve to those who only know Jersey City. _ Nick
Thank you very much Nick - Shamong is remote, but very beautiful. That's why we like it. I have lyrics planned, but just did this quickly yesterday. I'm going to check out your music. Thanks again Nick. Chris.
Hi Roy-I've been a member for quite awhile, and I love the site. I just wanted to ask you if the peer rating system for licensing works 100%? I think it's a great thing for the top 10's and regular reviews and all of that, but for something a little more serious like real world opportunities it seems that styles, tastes and views can be very diverse. Plus, maybe I'm way wrong, but some could vote the best music last in hopes of a higher rank. Have you ever seen this as an issue? Like I said, I love the site, it's a lot of fun, but can also be very relevant I think. I also wanted to ask, that by refreshing the page, does a provider really listen to 10 - 15 songs in the span of 1 minute? That's good information to know.
Thanks Roy - Chris.
Chris, I appreciate your nice comments about the site. One of our goals has always been to provide a relevant site that does showcase great songs.
Regarding your licensing questions: Within 10-30 seconds, or maybe just a few seconds, anyone who listens to lots of music can determine whether a song is broadcast ready (from a production/mix perspective/pitch issues/groove/feel) or not. Most will listen to at least a portion of the song once and then cut their list to a handful. If they don't listen to everything at least once, we call them immediately and try to find out why. I don't know of a case in the past couple of years where a song has been skipped. It's something we are pretty firm about. We guarantee this or a refund will be issued.
The provider has several ways to view a list and it defaults to the order received so most never even see the peer results. In a nutshell, the peer review system is only there if the provider would like to use it. They are certainly not influenced at all by the mechanism and definitely don't make any decisions based upon the results. If they did, we would have to question whether or not we should use them. However, they can prioritize the list by alphabetical, genre, tempo, etc. as well. On occasion we have a $50 best song bonus for certain listings and the peer review determines the winner.
Thanks for the good questions and best of luck,
Thank you so much for your review on "The Journey". It is an honor to receive such comments.
