Very nice tune Michael
relaxed and very contemporary. You have a really good voice, and your training shows (in a good way). I think you're making the change from classical to more modern genres really well.

I have a reputation for trying to find something to improve when I comment, so please don't take offense - I think you could make this even better by getting a little more variation (fills and such) going in the drum track once the song gets going. I'd probably like to hear the peripheral tracks (mainly the acoustic guitar) a little louder in the mix to give a more "enclosing" feel. The ending works for me.

Great voice and classy playing on a really good song - well done.

Cheers from Oz,
Neil

haha, No offence taken..
In fact its funny you should mention this Neil, because whilst i was listening to this (after i'd posted it) i was thinking it did need some sort of variation. I think some breaks between verses could work as well as some sort of drum pattern variation (as you mentioned). This could also help eliminate the whole 'abrupt ending' i've got here.
So thanks for the heads up, i guess i needed a second (musical) opinion to kick me into gear, and you provided!
much, much appreciated!
Thanks for taking the time to listen:)

nice!
kinda cold play vibe, especially near the end when the delayed gtr comes in. (i hope you take that as a compliment.) great progression. very nice surroundy synth pad(s) and delayed pianos. you also have a great voice which you chose the right frequencies to raise, but perhaps a couple of dBs over the top? which i could hit the high notes like you.

this is a really excellent tune. i like the little play on words to... 'i am wasted' (drunk?) 'on you' (ah, i see). i think it could use a bridge somewhere to break it up a little. maybe around 2:57? just an idea.

edit..
that should say 'wish' i could hit the high notes like you.

cheers
real nice comment 12parsecs, i really appreciate your kind words. I completely agree on the whole bridge section part you are talking about, and am actually currently working on one right now. I certainly do take the coldplay comment as a compliment (seeing as they are my favorite band), so that really is as high as compliments go in my books. I think two people have mentioned them now so i am a very happy boy!
thanks for listening and taking the time to comment!

12parsecs...
what on earth do you mean "wish i could hit the high notes" - i just listened to 'my time machine'. You have an awesome voice. By the way, i'm British, and i only EVER say the word awesome when it's needed. In this case, It's needed.

i'm falsetto
the first half of time machine is falsetto, which is like cheating. :) you are hitting nice high notes in your choruses without sounding strained. your voice is brilliant. (and i'm canadian and, well, we never use the word brilliant. hehe.)

Love it!
I really like your songs. Your voice and your playing is really great. This is definitely the beginning of something very special. Again, once you have completed the verses and a bridge with the very catchy hook you have now, this will be a very, very strong song. I can't wait to hear the end product. I will be anxiously awaiting.

I dig this
Why do the English always write such good songs? Damn you!

Maybe my headphones are weird, but I would have liked more vocals in the mix. But I would definitely listen to 12parsecs as far as production goes.

This is unbelievable!
Good loungy music. The piano is icing on the cake. I like the vocal style. It suits the piano and the spacey guitar.The vocal delay is nice, but maybe a little bit too reverbed. The drums are a little bit busy, but still work well.

I would love to do a trance collaboration with you. You have an edgy but mellow voice. And this song is already spinning beats in my head.
