Old song, first recording

Lyrics:

She's a runner
Soon she's a goner
But you've set your sights on her
You're gonna lose it
Ain't gonna get shit
But you are lusting for her

Helps you forget about the day
Where your hopes are gone
And your money is away

The day will come x4

Oooh
Woman woman woman
Why did you go
Did you come too late for your own show
Threw me out like trash
Now it's you who eats the grass
Oooh
Woman woman woman
I ain't coming back

To you x 2

Every year is getting shorter
And a good life helps to pass the time
But before the end the present matters
And you try to move further back in the line

The day will come x2

Oooh
Woman woman woman
Why did you go
Did you come too late for your own show
Threw me out like trash
Now it's you who eats the grass
Oooh
Woman woman woman
I ain't coming back

To you

I think this is more jazz than pop or rock, but I am not sure!

Having listened to this track, I can say it's a very wonderful piece.
The best way I can describe it is, is that it's short and moody; the kind of song you'd hear opening up, and establishing the tone of, a short film set in the likes of a late night New York or Chicago.

This is a song I can easily go back to and listen on cold winter nights. However, I'd say it leans a little more toward blues, but it is certainly jazzy.

hello man,
when I asked my son what to recommend to my singing, he showed me your song She's a runner..super music, a rhythm .. I want to ask .. do you have somewhere in your drawer only the music of that song? ..: -))
and the second question .. I'm shooting people underwater ... could you possibly permit me to use your music for underwater video? just question ...
what you can see on www.alicedigiart.com
if you do not answer both of them, do not mind ... I keep my fingers in your other music projects: -) Alice from Prague

Thank you, Alice. Interesting concept with underwater photos/videos! You may use the song for your projects if you credit Christopher Riis Eriksen (my name). I think there is a short only music piece of this song here on newgrounds too.

First off...I've been listening to your music for a very long time now and I just had to write a review for this masterpiece!

In my opinion, this is the best song you have made...considering you have made A LOT of amazing songs XD. You freakin nail the blue genre! I have like every blues song you have made! You put so much soul into your blues songs, and also know when restraint on vocals are needed. Guitar was spot on. Vocals were incredible. Overall extremely good!
My favorite parts were 0:11-0:15 & 1:55-2:04

I heavily research vocal techniques, voice tones, genres, etc.
You absolutely crushed it at 1:56-1:59. The glide up was spot on perfect, and the jump note up right after was completely on point as well.
As soon as i thought that was the climax...you blew me away at 2:01-2:03 XD. You rasp throughout that whole part was perfectly controlled! It always irritates me when artists use rasp randomly or just plain can't control it, So props to you on that! The G flat you hit at 2:01 was brilliant and the G at 2:02 was hit with the perfect amount of power and rasp! Your stylistic choices throughout the song were great...but 1:55-2:03 were just plain amazing. You abSOULutely enveloped the very essence of blues and soul music. I'm honored just to have been able to hear such perfection :)

1:47-1:50 is the type of singing I have noticed in a lot of your songs. It seems when you go into your lower range you start singing from the back of your throat/tensing up. If you can go that low without singing from the back of your throat then definitely do that, but if not I would suggest not going that low as it sounds quite awkward to most.
Another thing I noticed in many of your songs is the use of Intonations/Inflections. Intonations are generally regarded as a bad Vocal Habit. I used to do it all the time and eventually had to learn how to control it better. An intonation is only technically good when you hit a specified note at the very end. Many singers do this unknowingly (I'm guilty lol) and is best to address it before it becomes too much of a habit. I would suggest practicing Intonations with a specified note you want to hit at the end.
You can definitely look up both the throat singing and intonations to better understand how to improve, But overall you are an incredibly talented musician :D
Vocal Technique: 4.5
Instrument Playing: 5/5
Blending Together (Music&Vocals) 5/5
Stylistic Choices: 5/5

Blues seems to be the genre you excel in the most, but your house/trance songs are good as well :)
Keep up the amazing work and make more Blues masterpieces like this one! :D

Chzz responds:

Thanks for both the kind words and the advice! It is nice to see a more complex review. It is also nice tp see someone classifying the genre of my songs since I have a hard time doing that myself.

Love It This Sounds like some type of jazz the more uncommon but sounds like some blues as well keep er going man

Chzz responds:
