Quote of the Day

“That first song on your demo is like a radio hit: you want to hook the listener in the first ten seconds, interest him/her more in the next ten seconds, and if you can really hold them through the first minute they might listen to your whole tape.”- John Simon

Production Notes & Credits:

Music: “Enough” is a male vocal rock song. The music was written by Serge LaPorte and Louis Gagne, Jeff Dingwell wrote the lyrics. Serge arranged, programmed and played all of the instruments with the exception of the drums. He also did the tracking, mixing and mastering. The lead vocal and drums were courtesy of Louis.

Recording: If there has ever been a better submission to Reader’s Tapes than this one, we can’t recall what it might be. Serge (along with Louis and Jeff) has put together a masterful effort here. The writing is top notch as are the performances and the recording.

We love the tones, the use of panning, and how about those handclaps?! Individual sound sources weave in and out effortlessly, and the track never loses its focus or drive despite the advanced arrangement. “Enough” gets an A-Plus: go to the head of the class, gents!

Summary: We’ll be singing this one for days!
