Please enjoy this song I wrote in 2019, released in December. I created this song melding piano chords I wrote in OpenChords, drums, vocals, and a synthesizer riff mainly. I think it has a really nice feel to it, and it's one of my best songs to date with vocals. Being as I now have Google AdSense on the site I am going to post more of my music here so you can enjoy it without having to use another streaming service.

I wrote a song the year before last which was on my Spotify profile for a while but isn't anymore. This is because my profile was vandalized and I had to set up a new one. Despite this, the song will be back on my new profile in the near future. I have attached the song below if you would like to give it a listen.
I wrote this song using sampled strings, bass, and drums. It's a simple melody but the vocals are expertly crafted around it and it has a nice flow and feel to it. It's nice to listen to, with the cello and bass melding perfectly ahead of a persistent drum beat and upbeat vocals. With a fairly high BPM, it's a fast-paced and entertaining journey into the world of my music.
Listen to the song on your streaming platform of choice when it's released on February 27th at https://ditto.fm/make-amends-i...

I finally got around to fixing a song I previously had to temporarily remove from my profile. I lost the original file for this song, "Make Amends" by Intersex, but I had a couple of takes of it saved on my computer. Initially Ditto Music denied the first take I uploaded, and I forgot I had this later take in my library. Recently I found it, and now I have it sent to stores for release February 27th (this month!)
To clarify, I had to resubmit my music to stores because I had an issue with my previous distributor. My previous distributor, AWAL, was unable to secure my profile which lead to a spammer posting unpleasant audio on my profile. While this has been removed, when I went through the new distributor, Ditto, I had this issue of being unable to release some of my tracks. The other two I fixed of the original 3/8 that needed fixing, and now this one is finally done too. So now I have 9 full length tracks.
I have to admit, I haven't been working the hardest on pop music lately, I still sort of feel like I'm headed in a different direction. I am going to continue the project though, because I enjoy it and I'm dedicated to it. However, I'm going to work on other projects too, especially code and instrumentals.
Below is the album cover for the song. I'll post the full song here with smart links when I'm ready.

How To Write a Song: Common Song Structure Tips
If you're trying to figure out how to write a song, chances are you'll be looking for some easy-to-follow music theory lessons. After all, the whole point of writing songs is to be your own star and make your own mark. It's easy to get lost along the way and find yourself replaying a bad song you wrote years ago instead of performing it in front of a live audience. Don't worry, it's never too late to learn how to write a song.
Knowing how to write a song means discovering a basic idea to construct around. Take your favorite instrument of choice, play it, and begin to sketch out a rough first verse and chorus. You'll be surprised how easily a simple song structure will materialize. Chances are, you may already have an idea that you can tweak to fit your style. Some common song structure patterns are the verse-chorus-verse pattern, which we'll explore below.
The chorus is probably the easiest song structure to identify and begin using in songwriting projects. A chorus is characterized by a steady, melodic beat that repeats throughout the song. It's the main call to action within the lyrics and music. Knowing how to write a song that uses a chorus is similar to knowing how to write a song that uses a hook.
A hook or signature phrase is the words that make the songwriting session flow. A hook is a phrase or idea that repeats throughout the song, bringing together the lyrics, melody, and bass line. Hooks can be used at the start of the verse, the end of the chorus, or anywhere in between. Learning how to write a hook requires listening to many songs that use hooks and identifying what works and what doesn't.
A bassline, on the other hand, is characterized by the rhythm found in a song. Sometimes it's the lead guitarist who plays the bass line, but sometimes it's the drums, string instruments, or keyboards that play the bass line. The bassline's rhythm can vary widely - it can be hard to hear the bass line when a song isn't busy with other melody lines or hooks. However, if a bassline keeps repeating, it has a punch that listeners want to listen to. This is a perfect songwriting tip for beginners to create their own basslines.
Finally, the last common song structure tip concerns the narrative arc found in most songs. A narrative arc describes a movement from one point to another in a song. This type of song structure tip is similar to how to write a song that uses a chorus. It requires listening to a lot of songs and identifying which stories or lyrics move you the most.
Attached is a screenshot of my latest upcoming song, "Girl But Like a Boy", in stores on March 6.

We all love new music, we all enjoy hearing them and we are all familiar with the wonderful songs that have been made and heard. There is a type of music that has gained popularity in recent years and that is known as 'Indie Music'.

In recent years this type of music has grown in popularity and a lot of young people have discovered it and are listening to it on a daily basis. They like the uniqueness of new music and the simple, lo-fi sound that it has.
New Music on Radio One is one of the most popular music channels in the UK. On this station, you can find a variety of different new music from bands like Radiohead, The Rolling Stones, Nirvana, Blur, and loads more. This station plays music that has been recorded from all over the world, from the most authentic ethnic sounds to the most contemporary and most commercial music. It is really great to hear new music at your own home from radio stations that you trust.
Another place to get the music to help calm you down after a hard day at work is to listen to it on the radio. You can find all types of radio stations that specialize in certain types of music.

When you like some music then all you need do is turn on your radio and you will be greeted by an endless list of songs that are guaranteed to calm you down. These are radio stations that you may not have even heard of before, but that can certainly make the perfect background for your favorite songs.
Another great way to relax is to listen to new music during your commute.

Most of us know how much better and happier a person is when they are able to get to their destination on time and with as little stress as possible. When you are stuck in traffic listening to your favorite song or music tape can help you stay focused and avoid having any accidents on the way to work.
There are other ways to relax and unwind during the day, such as listening to your favorite radio shows. Many of the larger radio stations offer shows throughout the day and during the weekend that will guarantee to put you in a relaxing mood no matter what. Some of these radio stations may have local talk shows that feature interviews from experts and musicians who come on to talk about their personal lives and what is going on in their lives. Listening to these shows will not only put you in a good mood but will also give you some insight into what is going on in your community and around your town.
So while you might be hesitant to start listening to your favorite new music right away, don't forget why you listen to music in the first place.

I was paid today from RouteNote, the distributor I use for my oldest profile. I should be paid from Ditto pretty soon this month too. They paid me $29.43 for 9,984 streams. This came out to $0.002948, or about 0.3 cents per stream. I didn't have very many streams in December, but in January I had over 100,000 streams on this profile. If I'm paid the same, I should make around $320 that month from the first song I released alone.
I'm looking forward to seeing how I'll be paid for my other profiles too! I'll post updates when I get paid and let you know how it turns out. Thanks for making this so big for me. It's great to see people like what I've been doing and want to support me.
I look forward to what is next in my career. I'm going to be working on a lot of exciting projects and studying online to develop my career. I want to work on projects in the computer science and internet industry, as well as music and writing. I've been writing about topics I hope will be of interest, feel free to suggest some topics for me to write about in a comment or message. I want to write more.
The attached file is my weekly streams from Jasper Camber. I'll post more stream counts like this as my music continues to take off.

This is the last song from my self-titled album "Jasper Camber" released in 2020. The album is an assembly of projects I worked on and then edited later on. It's a collection of unique and interesting pieces I wrote myself.
I'd like to build a large audio library on this website, so you can get a feel for my sound and that of others just by browsing the website. I invite you to upload your audio as well, and make this a space for sharing music and discussing it.

How to become a successful electronic musician? Here's a tip: Don't quit your day job.
A lot of people who get to play in various bands think they can start a music career without paying their dues in other places first. People would assume that with the advent of the Internet, a time was ripe for the disaffected to take their passions from bedroom music to the mainstream. All they had to do was wait around, upload their tracks into SoundCloud, and post them online.
Over the last two years, however, there have been a lot of people who have fallen victim to this thinking. Sure, a handful of "noise" artists could have managed to break through. But there are many more people who had the songs they posted online but lost their spot in the crowd because they simply weren't well-known or well-supported in their day jobs.
There are a lot of reasons why this happened, of course. At the moment, SoundCloud is pretty much the only serious place where unsigned bands can put their stuff on the internet. Other sites that promote music that doesn't get published on SoundCloud will soon be able to afford deals with licensing companies, but it will probably take a few years for them to get there.
So when it comes down to it, the crowding of the playing field is just the result of a lot of different factors working against one another.
The good news is that while it's true that making a living as an artist still requires a day job, a musician who's ready to quit his or her day job and make it happen can still have a successful career. Here are some steps you can take to make that happen.
There's no blueprint to the successful musician.
The key to success in any walk of life is a thick skin and a will to succeed. Going from a job in your professional field to a life on the road and working your ass off is a tough transition. In addition, the skills you learn in that first job are really going to set you back as a musician.
Musicians should have a passion for what they do. There are many musicians that become very good at what they do only because they found a job where they didn't have to actually be that good. Having a job that paid the bills while doing what you love also helped to break the creative shackles. If that job paid the bills, you just had to ignore what you did on the weekends and you were good to go.
If you don't have that, though, you're going to have to sacrifice. You can't be an artist without a job that pays the bills, but if you don't have the job, you don't have a chance. I spent the early years of my musical career doing whatever job I could get. I was a stocker, dishwasher, package sorter and a delivery driver. But while I was lucky enough to make music on the side, I never was able to turn my passion for music into a job. It's easy to be lazy and not put in the extra effort, but if you're just going to show up every day and do what you're told, you're going to burn out fast.
As soon as you get that first paycheck, you're going to have to spend it on a second job. Paying off student debt can be a little tougher, because you probably don't have the money to just pay your loans back. Depending on what kind of student debt you're in, you may also have to pay it down with your first salary. If you have loans with fixed interest rates, you may not have enough extra income to pay off the debt in a year or two, at least without throwing the rest of your income at it.
But if you take on a job in addition to your music career, you'll also have to increase your income. I've been really lucky with my jobs. Because they're part time, I was able to find work that didn't conflict with my music and I could earn enough money from each job to cover my bills and put some aside. Sometimes I get another job, and sometimes I don't. But this is the case with any musician who wants to make money.
In closing, I think it's important that music, to get really commercial, needs to be enjoyed without paying for it.
