A few samples on Ed's Board.
*** "I would say you are as close to Ronnie as it gets. Including Ronnie, I have heard four singers that really capture Ronnie. Ronnie is one and you are one of the other three.
If I'm being honest you are as close as or better than most I've heard.
Good vocal control.
If we ever needed another singer...you're hired."
*** "Sounds pretty good. It's hard to be fair about it considering it's a demo and then reduced to .mp3 status and played through low-fi computer speakers but I can hear the RVZ influence in the voice moreso than many other folks I've heard."
*** "I thought the vocals we're pretty close to Ronnie's oringianl vocals.Almost a Dead on copy. I also thought for a minute, you lifted Ronnie's oringinal and put in on this one.Great Job!"
*** "Not bad. Sounds a lot like Ronnie. I am sure that some on the board will say that the music is not like the original but I think that it is cool. It has that funky feel of the original but in an updated form. It has your style. Thanks for the sample."
Thank you everyone for your time and considerations -WoodJam
