How do Improve My Production?

Maybe id like to play at bars someday or something, what should I do differently? Lyric content, emotion(any stand out sections)? I don't know if drums are important, but I don't think that's happening anytime soon. I'm looking for motivation and reason to improve and write more.

Thanks for listening feel free to be direct

If a mod could place this in -Work In Progress / Advice Requested / Show and Tell / Artist Showcase / Mix-Offs- thatd be cool.

I did like the color of your voice...., for the first two words; after that the degree of "nasalness" became inconsistent, making it sound unprofessional and ingenuine.
It felt like you kept falling in and out of the role (I did like the nasal sound, if that was not clear, but it should be consistent and not become "whiny" at certain spots).
A good breath support should help keep a steady voice sound.

You should also definitely write/play out your vocal melodies on a guitar/piano and practise hitting the correct notes, and with confidence; one or two wrong notes can make the whole melody sound bad/sloppy.

I'll leave the guitar for the guitar experts, but I'd like a fuller guitar tone, instead of the trebly sound.

I definitely think that there's something there to work with, though.

Success.

Hey

I really liked it - it carries emotion nicely; it's easy to listen to (in a good way), and you have a distinctive voice and nice lyrics.

I took 'Peeping Tomboy' by Kurt Vile - just as a sonic reference.

Production wise - I would sweep your vocal recording for resonant peaks - sounds like it might be a build up around 2K and dip out those freqs that hurt your ears.
Practice some of the guitar fills a bit more - then you can still play them laid back style but with more control. I liked the general looseness of it though.

I would like to hear different style tracks before or after say on an album; Then this track would stand out in a different nicer way.
Please keep going!
