So many of you were so supportive and encouraging when I posted my makeshift promo demo a little over a year ago that I wanted to share my new promo demo. I worked with Roy Renza, owner/engineer at Star Trax in NYC on the recommendation of my promo agent at Stewart Talent in NY. I haven't had a professional demo produced in a looooong time and this was fun to do.

Your work is great. If it were up to me I might move the first cut back a bit in order just because the music is so loud compared to your voice level, but that's me just being picky picky.

Way to go!

You have to sound like you belong and you sound like you belong. Someone with a budget WILL notice soon enough.

Well, I'm not going to be very original, here, but I'm in agreement with both Philip and Bruce (I like mixes where the message is not being fought by the music). You sound terrific. I also like your tagline.

Julia,

You have nailed it! What a remarkable, fresh sound. Wow, you have grown and grown since I first met you several years ago.
