Listening to this since I was having a look at the previous Self-Care Jam entries, while deciding whether to sign up for the upcoming one or not. Really nice music! I like everything about it, and your singing voice is nice.

I've been writing songs for a while too but I keep getting frustrated trying to record my voice, so they're all just on paper for now. It makes me feel more confident to hear songs like this, that I think sound great, that have been recorded "casually" too and aren't fancy-studio-perfect. :-) It's the feeling that matters...

Thank you so much! Recording is definitely the hardest, most frustrating part of songwriting IMO -- no matter how hard I work at it, it never comes out the way it sounds in my head. Is it the equipment? Knowledge? It's very difficult to know. You're right though, the important thing is what the song feels like, how it made you feel to write it, how it feels to play it. I'll be watching the new jam and if you submit your music I will definitely listen. <3

Hi Jordan, thanks for sharing your compositions. I didn't expect to chance upon such good songwriting & singing on itch.io. What serendipity !

I found the 4 songs both poignant & meaningful. They are certainly bear repeated listening, even in 100 years' time.

Yes, the "empty room" home-made recordings are not 100% perfect (... actually, only 1 song has occasional "noise" defects, the other 3 are fine just as they are). But I am hard-pressed to consider them "messy" in any way.

Thanks for the thoughtful lyrics booklet as well. A suggestion (for future releases) would be to make the background darker. Maybe my vision is really bad (... more or less legally-blind, if extremely high-index spectacles hadn't been invented) -- I find light grey text on medium-light grey background extremely difficult to read.

Thank you so much for your kind words and feedback! I'm so glad you enjoyed my songs. <3 I've added a high-contrast version of the lyrics booklet -- hopefully it'll be much more readable than the original. I will absolutely take readability into account when creating documents for future releases. (o.~)b Again, thank you so much for listening and taking the time to let me know how I can do better in the future.
