Empowering Music

'tude Vox Ro - A VOICE WITH ATTITUDE

'tude Vox Ro is an outspoken artist making music designed to help everyone succeed. She combines compelling music with thought provoking lyrics in an eclectic mix of life-changing songs. Ro’s edgy brand of empowering songs motivates and inspires listeners to activate potential within the soul.  She creates songs about the human experience, uplifting listeners by including messages of universal truth.  Ro celebrates who we are today and where we are going by helping listeners program themselves for joy, abundance and passionate living.

SASSY ALTERNATIVE MUSIC

The sassy alternative is about creating a catalogue of music that doesn't fit neatly into any one particular format or follow politically correct scripts.  These songs range from classical piano ballads to hip hop/rap, adult contemporary to progressive rock.  Topics include sexuality, economic crisis, social activism, mental enslavement,  world peace, personal transformation and visionary ideals. 

Sassy Alternative Music addresses real emotions with lyrics that relate to hard times, as well as peaceful bliss. "There is a time for every purpose under Heaven", even those uncomfortable moments. But instead of enforcing these difficulties, the Sassy Alternative offers food for personal growth spiritual transformation.

GEN-RAY RECORDS

Gen-Ray Records produces a new genre of music, designed to empower and uplift listeners with messages of universal truth embeded in a wide variety of contemporary music genres.  Our mission is to affect the intentional selection of entertainment as a tool for personal growth and global transformation.

From the beginning of time, humans have made music to express themselves and share emotions. Mass distribution of entertainment has been governed by those with the greatest economic resources, using it as a tool to shape thought, affect discussions, influence feelings and incite action.  As we hop-scotch through the early 21st Century, this generation begs the courtship of science and religion, marriage of mind, body and soul and divorce from the victim consciousness holding humanity in slavery throughout history.

CD Review

A little something for everyone' best describes the "From Primal To Divine" CD. An eclectic mix of styles that run the gamut from the ethereal grooving "Heaven on Earth" the edgy rock/grunge rap of "Until the Bliss" to the techno pop of "Make it Through". Rosemarie's vocals range from soothing to soaring rock, reminiscent of Evanescence with the depth of Anne Wilson of the band "Heart". Sweet vocal harmonies are supported alternately by lush and powerful guitar, thick layered tracks and a cool range of beats. This project is full of surprises, moving the listener through every emotion. Spiritually based, empowering social/political lyrics compel the listener to take responsibility for their own participation in creating a better world for all. Sassy spirituality with attitude!

Outspoken

Some people are sassy, challenging, irreverent and politically incorrect. 'tude Vox Ro is all of that and then some. For the listener who doesn't fit into and prefabricated roles and would prefer standing out in a crowd to melting into conformity, "Outspoken" is an eclectic mix of flirtatious hip hop, defiantly dark electronica and thought provoking pop that you won't find complying to any commercial format.

Conscious Life News featured video and short article on how it feels to have a "Sleepless Night".  Some people learn to disregard uncomfortable emotions, packing them neatly away to emerge in indirect and seemingly unrelated demonstrations. Others dramatically embrace these emotions, getting locked into a pattern loop that feeds on a defined perspective.

Neither disregarding nor dwelling in uncomfortable emotions provides for permanent healing. Acceptance, processing and releasing opens the door for emotional recovery and personal growth. In every moment of anguish ... Read More.

Heaven On Earth
, Written by Rosemarie Ashley, Arranged by Scott Sumner

Comment by sony67 on 23 December 2007
Hiya Rosemary, My thinking is very much in tune with yours! Not especially religious - but more of a spiritual nature - the lyrics are excellent, the production and singing very fine! First time I have listened to your tracks. Enjoyable listen. Keep up the good work. Rated. Sonya Stewart.

Comment by Destri on 23 December 2007
Great track both musically and vocally, very pro sounding recording, this could easily be sitting on a commercial CD..loving the guitar sound...enjoyed!

Comment by geiger167 on 23 December 2007
Had to stop by and drop a quick message on song, the guitars are so lush I literally wallowed in them lol, in fact the whole instrumentation on the track is gorgeous. Very, very cool vocal as well, deep full of body, really very well sung. Would be amiss not to mention the positive message of the track as well, which even someone non-religious like myself can appreciate. Very cool track in every way, rated :)

Sort of a Clear chicago style soft Jazz. Vocals up front, clear, concise, clean sounding. Nice even tone, Great harmony. Very melodious. Super background. Nice easy guitar, not off beat at all. Compliments vocals. Lyrics are good, Love the bongo back ground. Overall tone sets that relaxing mood that is welcomed. I find it almost ingenous when a band can put together such a beautiful arrangement like this.
- ROBTRODELLA from Salem, Massachusetts on 14Jan2007

A hot and winding voice. A rhythm of simple base, summer, spacious, cool. Good the arrangement that puts in first plain the voice. Excellent the contribution of the funky guitar very rhythmic and happy. Good the interlacement guitar and congas. I like the carpet of keyboards too, almost a flying carpet, that well unites the voice to the rhythmics. Good.
- COLORDRUM from Roma on 27Dec2006

This track is full up of great textures provided by electric guitar and keyboard pads - set against and contrasted to grooving beat - with an excellent female vocalist leading the journey. The vocals have an airy-floating quality to both their sound and performance. That airiness along with the lyrical content gives this track a spiritual quality. I was hooked by the conga-shaker groove of this song from the top. And then hit by a wonderful female vocal sound - husky, soft, expressive - There is some fine production going on here and the track is mixed to perfection in a smooth-new-age-jazz type of way. All of the FX (Chorus, flange, delays, verbs) are tastefully placed to accentuate the song.
Great stuff!

She could easily be a great supporting character in a movie. I think this is an awesome movie sound track piece. It would be great in an indi flick. I like the keyboard line in the background.

Comment by andrewflagg on Thursday, September 21, 2006
hahaha brilliant! this is a bit pussycat dolls. Thats a complement i love them. Great lyrics, they're the raciest i've found on this site. Love the rap, thats a really current trend in popular music. I love the squeaky 'ohs' in the background. The squelchy beats are reminiscent of justin timberlake 'sexy back'. There's also a bit of that climbing tic-a-tica sound that's used in a missy elliot song and 'control myself' by j-lo and ll cool j. So its a very current sounding song and a catchy one too. This is very different to your other track. Anyway, impressive work, andrew

- smallsonicbomb from Naugatuck, Connecticut on 7Feb2007

The whole song is exciting cause of the beat. The shit sounds like b52s to start out. The shit is definitely Euro.
- ziplokdotcom from Hudson, New Hampshire on 24Jan2007

A ninety groove which makes it very organic and yet a little exotic. I very much enjoy the flourishes of the stringed instruments and the solid beat.
- jonplye from Los Angeles, California on 26Dec2006

The obvious power to this piece is definitely the voices and the catchy lyrics. I love the distinction between the male and female parts and they are placed nicely. Seriously, this song makes me smile from ear to ear. "come on baby do me"??? ha! Cool piece, very catchy.
- darrickriggs from Salt Lake City, Utah on 18Dec2006

dirty ditty funky hop,an elegant xxx street beat tune on an old school riddim track.
- StereomariO from Canada on 18Dec2006

Great Vocalists. Nice hip hop flavor with great vocalists. I love the talent you have combined. Both singers have soothing voices.
- Keister from Austin, Texas on 13Dec2006

Hot stuff. I think its really good, I almost could imagine Jessica Simpson or Britney Spears singing it... Quality production and mixing... Everything simply is in order and ready to be released... good job.
- acamolist from San Francisco, California on 13Dec2006

The opening bars remind me of the Black Eyed Peas. The mixture of male and female voices working really well together. This has been well produced and there is enough going on in the arrangement to make the track interesting. The chorus is catchy as well. Overall for this style of music who ever has put this together has done a great job!
- joannerees4 from Essex, United Kingdom on 16Nov2006

starts cool. Sudden !!! some cool sounds and vocals. dance? this is like dance rap or hip hop. cant make a big difference! ohh some naughty lyrics!! did she say too afraid to be gay? haha . Cool track.
- ClaudiuG from Canada on 6Nov2006

Pretty Catchy Tune. Sounds like the pussy cat dolls or any other girl band like this. Beat is very original. I like the violins a lot. Overall very nice.
- o3music from San Diego, California on 3Nov2006

The first thing this song reminds me of is a song from a play or animated dark comedy movie. I think it is very refreshing. Its so different. I think this song is kind of cool. Keep doin what u do!!!!!!!!!!!!
- JAMC from Akron, Ohio on 14Oct2006

The prduction is good. The vocals are clear and sit nicely on the mix, the other elements in the track don't clash and occupy their own sonic space. The rapping is great, I like the vocals.
- jonparadise from London, United Kingdom on 14Oct2006

hip pop/hop style song. it sounds typically for the p-diddy style productions like this. its good. both the male and female vocals are performed well and sound good. the synth stuff is pretty cool. the beat is strong which is cool. mix and production are very good. nice.
- gitm from Milwaukee, Wisconsin on 30Sep2006

Superhuman - 11 January 2009

Very dark... me likey! As always loving the distinctive Rich sound, sweet sweeps & fast scaling. I love those quick 3rd progressions you toss in in spots. Ro was born for this genre. Nice touch with the reverb & delay on the sax. Now I can sleep... ZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzz... snore, snort... paws jerking.

Sugarbee - 08 January 2009

It's hard to say anything new about Richards guitar genius...it's fantastic...the vocals are utterly captivating and PERFECT for this song....just amazing really....the percussion was inspired and very unconventional I felt...and the sax was just a magic way to finish. How could I give this less than a nom? It would be ridiculous. ALL buttons pushed...and 'll be back for more listens definitely.

Mark Holley - 26 December 2008

Huge sound, like them vocals way up front like this, very powerful mix. Like this arrangement, got a bit of Metallica/Pink Floyd feel to it, closing out with that sax was a bit of genius. Excellent performances, both of ya, and high marks for production.

I love how you're rockers, but slip in a tad of electronica. You really have the Yes sound down to a tee. Drums and guit are dead on Yes... but still very Rich. Vox are similar but unique and wonderful as well. Sounds like a group that should be making mega bucks! Very nice!

WakeOfDestruction - 06 August 2009

I like the stoic kind of emotion from the vocals. It gives the song an emotion like a rock. The demonic vocals sound very good, too. Then we go into a crazy guitar SOLOOOOOOO. Yeahhhhhhh! That was awesome. Very well done. The song is really building now! Very serious and powerful. It started out as being a strong sounding song but now it's more than that. It's turning out to be a masterpiece.

Now a lingering calmer solo. This is a very well orchestrated song. Then an end. Wow! That was amazing! I can't believe it! THis has got to be the best song you've/you guys made :| Awesome collaboration. The emotion was just so solid sounding. Look at me ranting at this. lol

Scott did a really good job on the mastering. Everything sounds superb. It's very crisp, clear and vibrant with plenty of depth. Something hard to achieve! Wow, this was a pleasure to listen to. You all did a fantastic job. Nothing is out of place and there's plenty of everything to enjoy in this piece of musical ART.

Hi Rose&Rich.....Rocking track this. Full of attitude. And that guitar work is truly what id define as 'Bitchin'! Tight production, great performances. But for me the Chorus's are just fantastic. They really make the song, just as a Chorus should do. Actually one of the finest choruses ive heard for quite a while. Not just unsigned but anywhere i mean.

Comment by riddle on 30 August 2009
This is best described as One of the best if not the top Collab I have ever heard here at Mp3unsigned, everything is so tight, The Guitar is kicking this track way up there,The vocals put it in overdrive and really takes the prize, I love it all around and can't say enough about it. Vin

Chickie - 19 May 2009

Track is actually quite amazing, the vocals are strong from start to finish, great hook on the chorus, great guitar and drums, very crunchy. I'll mention the lead vocal again cos it's really good, yeah I got that little Rush thing going on as well, sounds fantastic. Really unexpected in a good way :)

WOW!!! i AM OVERFOUNDED & DUMBWHELMED!

I'm on my 4th listen now, but the first tidbit raised my goosebumps immediately. Love the drum roll (64th notes?). I have to say that I rarely enjoy vox at all and even more rarely listen to lyrics. I first hear the vox as an instrument and rate it as such, ROSiE iS iNCREDiBLE! OMG!!!! What musical genious-esses! The fourth run made my eyes well with tears at it's overall brilliance. Oh Yeah, Love the rap! I can see Rose doing the hand gestures.. LOL! "Not Later!" Great Job You Two!

Carol Kirkpatrick - 27 April 2009

I'm in a similar situation here in the UK, doing the nine to five grind, but each day, the threat of redundancy hovers over all our heads. If that happens, I'm basically stuffed!

Massive job losses went through two months ago, and we're already down to a skeleton staff, as the workforce has been slashed in half, and now struggling to do the job of two people on half the pay - whilst, of course the bosses have awarded themselves huge, fat pay bonuses, and they never have to feel the worry and dread that comes with that feeling of 'living on borrowed time' - as their positions are secure, regardless of the 'economic situation'.

So - to cut it short, excellent piece of work, and one that I'm convinced a great many of us here can personally relate to.

Storm Horses - 25 April 2009

Huge wall of sound rollin' outta my speakers, very impressed with the production on this number. Like the choice of instruments, the violin contrasts nicely with the rugged rock guitar and drum tracks. The big, bold vocals sitting way up front remind me a bit of the Wilson sisters from Heart (nice job, Ro, and some great lyrics.) The accompaniment kept bringing the glory days of Yes and Asia to mind and leaves me one happy listener. Powerful song, very well done and highly recommended.

TonyMillerLive - 01 March 2009

I like the guitar strum and the way you start the song. I like the lyrics so far, too. I like Obama and I think with a lot of other peoples help (as well as you employment) we can make the US come back as a better nation. Enough about politics, though. I like the detail of the heartbeat in the song. Nice touch.

I like it when you have the children (other vocals) in the background. That adds some good stuff to the song. I think this is a fantastic idea to get the position you want. It may just work! It's a great song so far. The lyrics are thought out excellently! It's funny, but not in an exploitable way. Just in the creativity aspects. Real cool.

The overall structure of the song is put together very well. I think you did a heck of a job putting those words together and matching them up with the right parts of the song. It's a very positive song that just might catch Mr. Obama's attention! Awesome idea, Rosemary. Simply brilliant! You have a great day and goooood luuuuuck! I hope the best for you! :D

Hi Ro! I like your songwriting and performance style. Your vocals and lyrics are real, clear and impressive vocal tones. All the good stuff, you know! lol... Another goodie! Rated!

Review by ConKuss on Saturday, September 30, 2006
Ro makes music in the chosen genres of Indie, Jazz and Dance (and possibly more). This track is a slightly indie sounding affair, for sure, it's downbeat, but with an uplifting message. Is it a message that the world is actually hearing and taking notice of at the moment? Unless enough people push the message forwards that this song holds, I'm of the opinion that love will never really stand a chance out there. The lyrics here are of a rather good quality, sensitively written, dealing with the more negative aspects of modern life, with a constant underlying message - Offering Love as the answer to our problems, be they famine, war, politics, religious fanaticism or violence. I'm seriously not doing this review to muse on what's happening out there in the real, dusty, blood-spattered world, but this song keeps drawing me back. Musically, the whole track works for the subject matter, creating a Lo-Fi, slow burning, laid back, yet menacing atmosphere that drips into your mind almost forcibly. Love it, loving the contradictions of the negative situations and the half-positive message to come from them all. Your performance is both mature in sound and young in feeling (aided by the angsty lyrics, I guess) - a good style indeed. The music is class too - nice and dark, yet mainstream sounding enough to appeal to a much wider audience. Production is just spot on for me, nice deep bass registers and good higher end clarity - nice one. Rated this one.

like the electronic stuff here. very textured and deep sound. vocalist is good, like the lyrics. reminds me of bjork. Good backups and weaving melodies. Nice beat. Overall very good job.
-loganlaw from Austin, Texas on 27Nov2006

intro is cool. The vocals are unique and the backups fill out the song nicely. Lyrics have nice rhymes.
-Barnsey110 from Syracuse, New York on 20Nov2006

Trippy intro, kinda like it, especially the vocal ambience. The vocals overall are downright beautiful and fit the overall mood excellently. This is such a grooving, dark song.
-CodeZ from Newport News, Virginia on 19Nov2006

Very interesting track. I think you have a good sound. The chorus is very dreamy and reminds me of a Bjork move. I think you guys/gal have talent. The drums are definitely my fav part of this song and they have a definite industrial sound. The female vocals are nice. I like the lyrics. I have no idea what you are talking about but I think it has a mystery factor.
-Skywire from Raleigh, North Carolina on 16Nov2006

This pretty song starts off with a electronic beat then the vocalist comes in clearly singing about all the world’s problems. The answer . . . LOVE. The song then turns into a multi-vocal performance that sounds soothing and holds interest on many levels. The swirling harmonies and complex vocal lines are so beautiful they almost make the world’s problems seem solvable. The song is well mixed and well performed. The music keeps a steady beat and the multilayered harmonies weave in and out towards the end giving a nice finish to this pleasant piece. The lyrics are current, thoughtful, and stimulating while wrapped up in such a nice performance. This singer melodically sings the truth that Love is all we need. Very fluid and steady A pleasant mix and composition A very nice job And enjoyable piece

Sounds in the beginning like a Peter Gabriel style song. A very cool voice on this song. She has a scratchy sophisticated voice.

Words can't explain how great the intro to this song is. The vocals are good. You definately have a unique style. Great vocal harmonies in the chorus. I like the flow. Great job
- fusion1 from Long Beach, California on 8Mar2007

This is a bit of a crossover type of song. Crossing over from Alternative to Electronica with a bit of soft pop rock thrown in. The sound is pretty original. The message of the song is a positive one. The vocalist is really good and has a great voice. The band is tight and the production of this work is good.
- poealamode from Phoenix, Arizona on 29Jan2007

I really like the lyrics...I am always for the peace songs, like System of The Down, now there is a political band! I like this song. I guess I just can relate to the peace songs. The vocalist is really good, smooth..The groove is different. I like different...the answer is love..I like it..
- manxkittykat65 from Saint Petersburg, Florida on 11Jan2007

This is a pretty cool track. The vocalist is the centerpiece here - they have a clear effortless and pleasant voice. The lyrics I like, Ive heard the message before, but its a good message that should be emphasized more. This song has a good groove and is very listenable.

Comment by Redshirt Theory on 06 December 2009
Rose, I just love your passion. obviously you voice stands out and takes this song to the next level.

Comment by ANDYF on 06 December 2009
Hey Ro! You have a quality about your vocals which sits you apart from the rest. It has an innocence that would fit a disney tale. Take Care Andy :)

Comment by Storm Horses on 06 December 2009
This is just a "Beautiful" song...the lyrics say it all. Superb production just love those chord changes...and your vocal is stunning!! Rated

Comment by David Joel Carter on 04 December 2009
Wow, beautiful song! Immediately reminded of the Carpenters in the arrangement, production and that stellar vocal, yeah, very reminescent of Karen's soaring pipes. Superb, quite easily rated.

As skaven says, clarity is great. Vocals are superb. The whole song is extremely polished. Nice to hear you do a ballad, you handle it very well.

Special song. REally well done. Love your voice on this one big time! Dan

Feel the Love, Music by Rich Ramsey, Lyrics by Rosemarie Asley

The guitars and drums on this track are very cool! I couldn't decide whether it sounded like Yes from the early years OR later years with Trevor Rabin. Either way, definitely a road less traveled!
Erik Jurado - 20 March 2010

.Very clever work and cool arrangement, the synths used are tastefully done i think there was even a mellotron in there.Quality vocals Rosemarie.Fine track indeed R.

Storm Horses - 20 December 2009

Feeling love on a grand scale!! Beautiful guys...little bit "experimental" in places but what is experimental except tomorrow's classical sounds?

Encore encore!!
dawnsinclair - 20 December 2009

This has QUALITY written all over it!
Firstly Rosemaries vocal, brilliant performance. The melody is superb, really memorable.
2ndly this has your signature sound all over it Rich. Rocking guitars working away, but really complimenting the track as a whole.
Very pro sounding production also.
Cracking work, and great track!

Songwriting in the same league as Pet Shop Boys! Production is great - love the lyrics and the vocals - One of the best songs ever posted on MP3U!

Vocals to die for, production excellent. Someone said Pet Shop Boys - they should be so lucky.

Morning Light, Music by Rich Ramsey, Lyrics by Rosemarie Ashley

At first listen, the very start of the song bangs out a clear drum sequence that sounds fantastic. Then I hear the serious bold vocals of Ro! Always, that bold sound is so awesome. Just so powerful and full of life yet so stoic sounding. An odd mixture in a vocal. That's where talent comes into play. When chorus is added you can really feel the energy.

I can relate to this song a lot. I've had some hard times in my life and my will to do things amazing is strong. The production is very clear. I'm surprised by this because there is a LOT going on in the song. Lots of energy. Lots of blistering drumming and guitar layouts. Not to mention the explosive power in the lung force. Definitely on my high end recording list of artists. Wonderful job on this, guys. Totally awesome. Like blown away awesome.
Andy Stokes - 05 April 2010

I've always heard the Yes influence in your stuff Rich, weird (in a very fitting way) that Ro has such a Jan Anderson sound as well. Really love this! All buttons!
Kelly Mitchell - 05 April 2010

Rose and rich.....This for me is an interesting track...its more than a song (if that makes sense) It stands the test of time... Yes it may have rock in its genre but its very laid back and structured like a chill out track?.. The lyrics are very good and the songwriting and structure is top class...Vocals are really good here ro, nice melody,classy lines and very well delivered!!!... Production is very tight and neat...Clarity is great and the guitar work is very very good... Its quite the epic track, not easy listening or something with a super catchy hook,a real song (thats a compliment) a song that is made with real ideas and creativity....

Good work all round :-)
Dave Meredith - 01 April 2010

This is a great track, superbly performed and produced with great lyrics and melody. The vocals are outstanding as expected.................
DSSMusic - 31 March 2010

Lovin that bass once again. Rose is such a great singer (and lyricist) and has that classic voice that works so well with you music. The geet is really fine. This is really good. Go figure...:=).

Dan
Beluga - 31 March 2010

Quite phenomenal. It smacks of YES which is best compliment I can offer. Ro has such a compelling voice and the melody of the song is instantly captivating. Ant
LIQUID - 31 March 2010

First track of the day,and could'nt have picked a better one.Just luv that chorus,great harmonies...sweeet.Awesome production...my roots are in Rock,but we never got a sound like this:(
Great musicianship guys...enjoyed and rated.

Europica said on 14 September 2010
Lots of power and energy in this, coming from all the elements of the song. Vocals, guitars, drums etc. Very dramatic, then the soft outro is a cool touch. Shed loads of passion in the vocals Rosemarie.

ericethann said on 05 September 2010
I agree with Scott. Production level on this is fantastic. Lyrics are deep and thought provoking for sure. Great voice btw. Again the guitar work that runs through this track is amazing. Rated Eric

scott slater said on 04 September 2010
So many well produced songs around here these days and this is no exeption.....you have a great voice...a real grower......found myself really into it by the end.......two listens for me...and i can't say it reminds me of anyone ive heard either. Individual sounding......

NaughtyStep said on 20 August 2010
A good, well produced track and It's good to hear music with a message...it's hard to do without sounding preachy or pushy and this excecutes it well.

LODATO said on 15 August 2010
Very nice song and colab. I love the message. This has a "Yes" trait which is a wonderful element. Can't go wrong with this line up!

Apsis_Lappet said on 09 August 2010
You have a very beautiful and powerful voice, and it fits the song perfectly. The music itself reminds me of old 90's rock at it's finest hour. The song is really well done, very professional, and keeps you listening, not only to the music, but to the amazing and well-sung vocals. Kudos!

Erik Jurado said on 08 August 2010
I just finished one of my tunes and spent a couple of days to get a good, clean sound. Then, I listen to this track and hear how clean and professional it sounds and I am so impressed. I also liked the topic of the lyrics - exactly the subject I have been talking with my daughter about. Nice tune! - Erik

Absolutely mind-blowing orchestration and production. Vocals outstanding. I get the Bjork reference made earlier - definitely a quirky accent which works well with the song. You got me last nom!

Great track, great sound... Thank you for sharing rose :-)

Greatest Gift, Music by Dave Meredith, Lyrics by Rosemarie Ashley

TonyMillerLive said on 05 December 2010
Production and musicianship are, as I would expect, flawless. Ro, your voice really suits this style better than the 'Jon Anderson' rock style to my jaded ears. Purely personal opinion of course, but me like. Dave, love those up front drums. Spill the beans, what did you use? Thumzup!
ericethann said on 02 December 2010
Ro and Dave Wonderful song here. Very uplifting and well produced. Love the piano as well Vocals stand out on this track. I didn't realize the meaning behind the song until i read the lyrics. Great job Thumbs ALL The Best Eric

Richard Ramsey - iODiNE said on 27 November 2010
Beautiful power pop song you two! Very heart felt lyrics Ro and splendid delivery! Glad I stopped by! Enjoyed this! Rich
Apsis_Lappet said on 13 November 2010
I would like to reintroduce the fact that you're amazing and have a beautiful, angelic voice. Your vocals bring a lot of energy to this song that a lot of people would leave out, making it both an awe-inspiring and haunting song. The lyrics are well made, definitely not just like some people that rhyme cat with hat and such like that. It's a very powerful song, and even though it's a little lengthy, the pace, the vocals and the music behind it keeps the listener interested. You always make very well produced songs with a lot of energy and power behind them, and it's always a joy listening to them. Thanks for the experience! Kudos and Thumbs Up!

Andy Stokes said on 13 November 2010
I like the piano introduction before your voice/ensemble come in. I like your voice a lot and it really stands out here. The production is sounding great. I love the melody with the guitar and it backs up the intensity of everything superbly. The duo vocals are a nice effect and a bit different than what I've heard from you in the past. The lyrics really are something to think about. Lots of unhealthy people out there that don't realize how things really work in the world they don't think about. I've always looked at things with Mind, Body, and Soul. Love is part of the soul and it's an energy that enters us all whether we except it or not. It's always there and people don't realize it. Or some don't want to. When they do it's either wonderful or destructive. I've always seen love as a good thing. I take bad experiences and find good within them. It's a technique I use to heal myself. It causes you to endure what normally wouldn't be possible. This song is a wonderful example of what I'm talking about. Love truly is the greatest gift ... well... love surely does heal, lets just leave it at that! lol Walking away from the soul of the song... I think everything in this song displays and backs up what messages you're telling. It's an intense song. A reputation that you have held in my eyes: The ability to be intense and sound good doing it. Congrats with to the roster who aided you. Lots of good names. The production quality... I would describe it as very vibrant and intense. Blissfully dark but bright at the same time. The snare gets you pumped, the guitar yells at you and the vocals discipline the ears and remind them to tell your brain what's going on. Another awesome track! Arranged and mixed near perfectly and sounds great. Love it! Have a great day!

James Oakwood said on 12 November 2010
Splendid hard-hitting song Ro and Dave. I'm sure scott had a big hand in bigging this up too. Getting rid of all the shackles of "everything else" is, I guess, what the lyric tells me. Thumzup.

Dan Michaelson said on 09 November 2010
Really enjoyed this song from two of the more talented artists on the site. I never get tired of your voice Ro and Dave, your music always amazes. Thanks for the DL.....
LODATO said on 08 November 2010
Ro and Dave, what can I say.. This is absolutely beautiful! Ro, you know how much I love you voice and blended with Dave massive musical talents, it's just a powerhouse of a song. It really moves me. The lyrics are so special. This is just wonderful stuff. Thank you.


Until My Dreams Come True, Music by Rich (IOD!NE) Ramsey

Dave Meredith said: 7 September 2010 05:59
As normal, production is spot on.. A very different style of song.. Not quite the nomal verse to chorus change that comes with most songs... The drums have a great feel but i find at times there are to many breaks, but this maybe because of the style of music?.. Guitars are great!!! loads of energy and passion from the guitar... Ro's vox are an interesting blend in this.. I like them being less high end.. Some nice style and melody lines... Nice use of subtle backing vocals...Lead vocal is very neat and tidy and has cool dynamics... Its good to hear artists stick to their own ideas, not fall into the mainstream track, keeping it as they want it... This song shows that.. It gives it an original feel and sound.. Well done Ro,Rich and Scott (master)...

ericethann said: 5 September 2010 10:48
Very nice vibe indeed. Top production. What can I say about you guitar skill that I haven't said before. Just fantastic full of emotion. Lyrics and the deliver of them also tops! Really enjoyed rate for sure. Eric

Superhuman said: 5 September 2010 10:36
Real original sound, kind of an 80's vibe coming through on those synths but the production is from today. love those synths and Rich's rhythm guitars sound nice and meaty. Love the melodies, structure and riffs - really well crafted piece of music. Ro's vocals as always shine right through, everything fits really well and is so complimentary. Lyrics as always add a real social commentary which is theme signature of your collabs. Ah yes, the instrumental break:-) Love those harmonised guitars and there are some nice unusual arpeggiated runs and wickedly difficult sounding skipping patterns. Love it, rated and recommended to anyone with ears!
scott slater said: 4 September 2010 20:08
Spikey and quirky song. never thought i'd here the lyrics 'temporal lobe' in a song hehe, not sure where it is but i like the sound of it.....a good listen.....cheers....

James Oakwood said: 1 January 2011 08:28
I too liked the intro and the guitars sound really great coming in when they do you pair o rockers. Great vocal sound with Ro as i would totally expect. Some nice edgy guitar riffage comes in places as the track develops - y'kno stuff off the scale of the music - me like this!! Good production from Scott(?). Thumzup you guys.

Dave Meredith said: 25 December 2010 05:57
Hello... Nice start to the track..Guitar melody is dark and rich with melody.. The alt drum track is sweet.  Rose has performed a solid vocal here, and found a melody that could not have been easy to find as the music does not scream out with a vocal melody in mind.. well done there!.. It shows an understanding of singer and musician. Mastering is spot on as i would expect, its scott..so i knew clarity and sharpness would be top draw,it is.. Some nice cool effects to the vocals (delays).. A track with alot of depth and ideas... strong lyrical content.. Guitar work is very good.. Nothing to in your face,nice little melodie leads, riffs, when needed and solo's ...all in the right places to my ears... Thanks for sharing Dave
