Have you well recorded quality songs ready To pitch ,  this particular Band are
fronted with a male and female on vocals.    The Management are compiling
a list of song demos submitted from both established writers and new writers

The vocal style I would describe as Pop Country Rock / Cross over

Obviously any Record Company would like new Songs to cross over to the main stream charts
If you look up   - The Shires - on You Tube , and you feel you have something similar to
their style send me a link . rest assured   I will pass it on to the   A and R For consideration

Please no more than Three songs and be prepared to post a C D in Wave or other
UN Compressed format

I cant tell you any more than I have;  apart from the Release Date of the Album would be
the Spring of 2018

Hi, Peter, Please find below the link to a pop country song that might be suitable for your group.


“She’s Still Around” was written by myself and is performed by demo singer, Nigel Cuff.

I have had the song remixed and can send you an mp3 if required.

Yours,

Hey Robin, I don’t know how I missed a fellow Dundonian on this forum! I lived there in the seventies.

Hey Peter,

This one might fit the bill
https://soundcloud.com/gavin-sinclair-5/if-only-you-knew-featuring-jenny-stokes

It might be a bit more ballad than rock, but it’s not entirely impossible to envisage it being performed by a group like The Shires.

A bit more rock with a country feel:

And maybe slightly more of a stretch, but who knows, since the band has both male and female vocals? This was originally conceived as a duet with male and female vocals taking alternate verses.

Cheers,

Gavin

as for WAV files we’d have to ask Craig, but since he’s rather fastidious…

Hi Peter,

“The Shires” are an amazing duet who’s songs are forever re-defining and re-shaping the future sound landscape of Country music!!!

My name is Kevin Nevel; I’m an multi-genre songwriter American seeking/songwriters/ producers/singers/musicians/bands to create great hit songs.

My Patsy Cline tribute song; “Fallen Angel” would be a great duet Country song for The Shires”, here’s my music video links:

V1
Tennessee at early spring singing “Crazy”,
At the Grand Ole Opry on TV
With a lush voice singing like it hurt inside,
Fallen angel falling too soon from the sky
Chorus:
Fallen angel on that fateful rainy day,
You fell from the sky
But your songs won’t ever never die
“Sweet Dreams” echo forever on the stage
Of The Grand Ole Opry Yeah Yeah Oh Oh

V2
So many singers tried to sing like you could never get far,
Cause you felt the songs you’re singing and forever raised the bar
Singing with a voice that touched our heart ‘n’ soul,
Oh now you’re in Heaven but our hearts won’t let you go

Repeat Chorus:
Fallen angel on that fateful rainy day,
You fell from the sky
But your songs won’t ever die
“Sweet Dreams” echo forever on the stage
Of The Grand Ole Opry Yeah Yeah Oh Oh

Solo:
Bridge:
Death cannot kill what never dies: love, is written in your memory,
Enfolded in the angels wings fallen angel your songs will last for all eternity

Tag:
Fallen angel on that fateful rainy day,
You fell from the sky
But your songs won’t ever die
You feel the hurt and the heartache in every note
Fallen angel we all miss you so Fallen Angel…


You can also listen to my Duet love Country song; “Walk Away” for consideration for “The Shires” on the Reverbnation below link (under “more songs”).

Walk Away

V1
When you said our love was over,
You caught my heart by surprise
But I got to be strong it’s time for a new love,
It’s time to up open my eyes
Chorus:
If you wanna walk away then just walk away,
You don’t need to worry about me I will be ok
Our love is over there’s nothing more to say,
Nothing more for us to say so walk away walk away walk away

V2
Looking back now I remember,
All the good times that we once had
My broken heart is goanna miss you,
Losing you makes me so sad
Repeat Chorus:
If you wanna walk away then just walk away,
You don’t need to worry about me I will be ok
Our love is over there’s nothing more to say,
Nothing more for us to say

Bridge:
This isn’t what we wanted but it’s time for us to face reality,
If only our love were different I would never let you walk away from me
Tag Chorus:
If you wanna walk away then just walk away,
You don’t need to worry about me I’ll be ok
If you wanna walk away then just walk away,
You don’t need to worry about me I’ll be ok
Don’t look back to see me crying
Remember how our love used to be when you walk away from me walk away walk away…

Hey Peter,
so you’re looking for pop country rock. I’ve got something in my song collection that might fit. First, a song called “One More Try”, originally recorded with my daughter and myself as a duet. This demo here is recorded by a solo artist.

One More Try - feat. Annagrey Labasse
http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=11648137


An alternative could be “Cowboy Law” which is more country rock:

Cowboy Law - feat. Tara-Lynn Sharrock
http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=12729994


Or my last one which was recently also produced as a pure country track is called “February Heartache”. This is the stripped down piano version:

February Heartache - feat. Tara-Lynn Sharrock

All the best
Robert
