That's The TicketBeing a honky-tonk music fan, can be a lonely place these days. So, imagine my surprise when i click on ' the Whiskey', and get a rare breath of, not clean air, but good ol' smoke-filled bar sound! Man, I loved it! It's clean, it's honest, and a piece of honky-tonk heaven! Don't change nothin'. Just keep on, keepen' on!
You Got ThisI choose my songs to review very carefully. I came across yours. The tempo and genre are a great fit for your vocal. The upbeat melody had me wanting to dance. Vocal was very clear and easy to understand. The message also clear. Whiskey does not work to drown heart ache. Great writer behind this piece. What would have made it a perfect 5 star. Little more base. Great Job and good luck. Michelle Storm Singer/Songwriter/Publisher Owner of Platinum Storm Records
Whisky SongHi David What a Great song, the lyrics are so well written and tells a story that lm sure many people can relate to regarding drowning sorrows with alcohol .Great melody and good choice of talented musicians. Your voice is clear and suits the song. No wonder it's a number one hot hit... Congratulations... Cheers Johnny Shilo
The WhiskeyThe rockingist tune I have heard in a long, long, long, long time. One thing about this tune is it has whiskey on the breath. Country tune that is enamored with alcohol will always justify the reason for the written tune. Alcohol in all it's glory, and Country Music is here to support it all day long. A number 1 hit on N1M is what this tune is at it epitomizes the greatness of the American Dream. To drown your sorrows in Whiskey. What a pleasure to see this Chap #1, truly deserving
Five thumbs upThis song was a pleasure to review! I like this better than many of the songs I hear on the radio at this point. Great job from David. I like the beat. I like the pedal steel and his voice wrks well with the arrangement. I was surprised to see he is from Australia, but we have had some great music come from there, some of them country. I will be watching this guy! RB
OLD PREMISE REVIVED VERY WELL IN "THE WHISKEY" BY DAVID DANIEL!It seems that country is actually worldwide! Australian David Daniel has a new song on N1M called "The Whiskey," and I think it's pretty good. The lyrics explore a tried-and-true premise about how drinking doesn't make our hero feel better after his wife/girlfriend leaves him. But it sounds good to me. Musically it seems to be a hybrid between traditional country (which I respect) and modern country (which I prefer). And my wife likes it too, and she isn't a modern country fan! So Mr. Daniel must be doing something right in the land down under. Keep up the good work!
ReviewGreat groove, melody is very strong, started out it didn’t feel like the lyrics fit the music till you got to the chorus maybe it was a meant to be thing! Lyrics are strong. I really enjoyed it! Made me want a margarita!!
You got skillsLove this so dreamy. Easy to listen to and perfect to dance to when the sun is going down . I will be recommending this to my friends really like your sound good luck with it all and happy Easter
Exciting WhiskeyI don't enjoy drinking whiskey, but I enjoyed this song. Modern beat and amazing vocals. I felt like I was in Nashville, feeling all of the intense excitement. When I write lyrics, I always have to think of a strong beginning and a thoughtful chorus, and this artist had everything nicely packaged here.
The WhiskeyThis is a cool country vibe. Melodic, well arranged progression. Needs a remix. Has the potential for radio airplay with the right Artist if pitching the song. If the current performer wants to release it himself, it could go. Lyrically, using cliche lines would be better served unused. Overall, catchy story. Pat Melfi, StarPointe Records, Pro
The Whiskey ReviewCool opening guitar riff! Love the pedal steel guitar on this track. To be honest, the vocal does not seem to fit this song well. It can work on other material. The lyrics are fine, typical country.
Whiskey Works!Some classic country sounds including a sweet pedal steel opens this tune and quickly turns into an homage to many of the familiar drinking tunes. Bound to be an instant bar favorite with a steady sway along dance beat and tasty guitar lead work throughout. Cool dual lead duel in the solo section brings us back to that singalong chorus that we've all memorized by now. Oh what to do when the whiskey sure ain't working anymore. Guess we'll have to wait and see what the follow up tune to this eternal honky tonk dilemma! Great Effort, Nice Tune!
The whiskeyI really like your music. It is superb, and so dashing. Your voice is really good. Try get loads of record deals. You will definitely make it and have got a lot of potential for your music. Go for it
The WhiskeyI want to tell you I really enjoyed your song,Darn whisky just stops working,Im thinking hurrting is stronger than whiskey.You sang it very well and believable which is a real accomplishment,Great Job,
The WhiskeyGreat Introduction, solid musicianship and a real drummer too! I like the pedal steel. It feels out the middle, you do't miss the keyboard. The guitar player has chops. This is a good overall mix and mastering but the bass and bottom could be more present to make it more radio friendly. For a radio friendly mix the bottom has to be very present. The mix right now is very mid range. I'd like to hear the vocal mix upfront in the mix with more reverb effect. Some of the lyrics get lost. Background vocals to support the chorus or ooh's and aah's in the lift section of the song. Though the song is fine as it is. It is predictable c/w, and the c/w market likes predictable, such as: liquor, girls, jeans, tank tops, trucks, Mom, trains, horses, broken hearts, and the old hometown. For unique c/w with great writing twists take another look at what Willie, Kris, Merle, Lyle Lovett, Marty Robbins, Roger Miller, Jimmy Webb, Townes Van Zandt, Brooks and Dunne, Bob Wills, and the master Hank Williams Sr. Their lyrics are unforgettably brilliant. I encourage you to write brilliant music. This is a good track though. You know what you are doing. I enjoyed it.
