For Songwriters!!! The Demo Version of a #1 Song

Uns Req gtr

One of my favorite things as a songwriter is to hear the demo version of someone’s song that was pitched, picked up and recorded by an artist or group, especially a song that ends up on a chart.

Thankfully, a song I wrote falls into this category. It’s called, “Unspoken Request,” and is on a CD called, “Precious Seeds” by the Southern Gospel group, The McKameys. It reached the #1 spot on the Singing News Magazine chart in the January ’13 issue. (See the full story on our “News” page.)

If you want to compare the recorded/released version to my “Garage Band” demo, first go to the following You Tube link and give The McKameys’ cut a listen.

After you hear it, come back and listen to the demo. Its the very first rendering of the song. Again, I find these comparisons very interesting. I hope you do, too!

    Great Song! I have been listening to several of your older recordings on cassette tape and decided to go to your web site. So glad I did. Love your music and the message you teach through your music.
    May God richly bless your ministry. Keep on writing and singing.
