Well done, Jug.

Proof that you've got the goods. And some presentation, as well. That is, you don't stand like a statue and issue tones. You move with the song and emote. You present what the song means to you and that transmits to the audience. So, when is your american leg of your world tour starting? You think you can book at the Choctaw Casino in Durant, Oklahoma, or the Winstar Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma? I can make it to either one of those. Unless you are playing smaller venues. I still remember how to get to Poor David's Pub in Dallas, Texas.

Using effects etc always adds to the performance, but how well can one really perform a song ? In one go ? Live ?

Great stuff Jug, you can really perform the song ! (I can't watch the 2nd due to royalties issues in my country...)

But that 1st one was spot on - great job man!

Jugulator:

Hey, this was enjoyable to listen to! You sing expressively, with firm, accurate tone and understandable words. Great English diction. Bravo.

Here are a couple things that you could work on, to create greater variety in the performance...

... we cannot see the footwork, but some of the motions you are making are distracting (at least for me) to watch because they are not in time with the music. They seem more like shifting of weight to shed tension... which is fine in and of itself, but at some point should become more subtle. Pick the motions you make to serve the expressiveness of the song, almost like choreographing a dance... where every motion has a motivation.

... some of your inhalations are so forceful, rapid and deep that they cause a muscle in the side of your neck to tense visibly right before some of the phrases. You can avoid this if you begin your inhalation to start just a bit earlier.

Overall, I thought this was very effective singing. You have great twang, and you obviously engage your whole self in the performance. Thanks for posting!

All of your stuff is good, Igor. I can't think of anything you need help on. And seeing these live performances just illustrates that. Anyone can fix a sound file recording. But to sing the song live that well is solid ability.

You really need to be on tour and not having a band, that's just an excuse. If you don't already have an online site or channel to sell your music, you should get one. For a fee, a person can download your stuff right into their computer or ipod. That's the way of the future, anyway. Seriously. With a download to computer, anyone can burn a cd of all their favorites songs. And more often, just download to ipod, which can be ported into various stereo systems, anyway.

The only reason you are not selling albums and touring in a van because you don't want to do so. And that's fine. If you like being an amateur (unpaid performer,) that's cool and I will always enjoy your stuff. I'm just saying, that you could and should be making money with this. What if you played a club for $20 per person in a small club that holds 200. And let's say the club gets half. That leaves you $2,000 USD to split up between you and the bandmates. For one night. You get my drift? Use the online music to create interest in the live shows. That's Moby did. In fact, he recorded stuff and shopped it around to movie studios and made money off of synchronous licensing. Public performances came later.

Same with New Sickest Kids of the World. They had an album deal when they only had three songs and got booked to play South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.

That could be you.

ronws, thank you for the post. As soon as I get a suitable band and a set of songs I'm gonna start my internet-based project right as you've described. I assure you that you'll be one of the first to hear my new music... free of charge :)
