The Legendary Mike Hill is a familiar name in the live-music circuit, having been performing in famous venues regularly across the UK and Norway since the 70`s. Finally, he’s decided that it’s time to etch his work into stone with his first full-length album, Legendary Cuts, which already has two singles released on Spotify.
Mike Hill’s music repertoire spans a variety of genres as colorful as his illustrious career, but his first love has always been rock’n’roll, which has formed the groundwork of Legendary Cuts. The album features old-fashioned country rock with a modern twist - think Nashville-style guitar that’s overdriven, and then shaken and stirred for that extra fizz.
Most of the tracks were recorded 15-20 years ago and are now being remixed and mastered to keep them sounding slick while preserving the energy of a live performance from an era where rockstars lit up the stage with their fiery antics and catchy guitar riffs. The result is a perfectly-aged time-capsule of a music collection that sounds great through modern devices while transporting you back to a time where live music was performed with passion by live musicians - no electronic samples here.
Mike Hill’s biggest passion is entertaining people, and his love for uplifting his audience shines through his unpretentious songs that he wrote as a reflection of his emotions at the time - an emotional snapshot of an artist born to perform. Legendary Cuts is a roll-call of positive, exciting music that’ll energize you to get up, pour yourself a drink, and dance away in your living room.
The album, while energetic, isn’t an unstoppable freight-train of musical momentum. Mike Hill always keeps his audience in mind and has intentionally inserted powerful ballads in between lively songs to give his listeners time to breath and relax before the next round of dancy guitar riffs.
“Be a Star” has everything you’d want from a country song that’ll get you jigging and jiving along at home. The uplifting tune will take you right back to the 1950`s Nashville country, with plucky guitar, train-track drums, whimsical lyrics, and a feel-good vibe that’ll keep you feeling great long after the song has ended.
Our reviewer writes :
"I absolutely love this song! It's a simple yet enjoyable feel-good song that I start many days with. True, it's a little old school and some would say gimmicky, but I think that's part of the charm. Regardless, I have this one on repeat to get my mornings up and running.
The guitar solo is a nice touch too, featuring some classic plucked guitar. Music as a whole is quite playful and engaging."

Nothing is more important than marketing and promotion when it comes to your music career
Of course, it will always be difficult competing with other artists out there, especially the big fish, but we know that being a budding, small artist isn't necessarily a disadvantage.
Here at Music for Songwriters, we can help you produce perfect and professional-sounding tracks while turning your status as an underdog into a distinct advantage. Our newest product, V-Tracks, is the perfect tool to hone your individuality.
V-Tracks keeps the same tempo and chordprogression.
This means that once you make a melody (using one of the V-Tracks), you can switch between the different V-Tracks to find the one you like best.
Have you ever wondered what your song will sound like with a completely different music arrangement? Well, now you can. But you will need to use a V-Track when you write your next song.
There are many true stories about how a switch like this can make or break a record. Did you, for example, know that "Forever young" (Alphaville) was originally made as an up-tempo track? Then the producer came in and told the engineer to pull down all faders except the synth. And it became a classic.
We will keep developing the V-Tracks and we invite you to join us in this quest for making a living out of our musicmaking. This must be the main goal for anyone making music out there. Imagine quitting your daily job and only focusing on making the best music possible. Can you do that?
Is there anything better to do on this earth than making and listening to music? You can always practise making children, but except from that, we think making music wins the whole kaboosh. And this is what is on our minds - night and day - so if you join us, you know what to expect.
From a singer`s perspective - using our music is a very convenient way to write a song.
You don`t have to play any instrument yourself and you don`t have to wait for the band to get ready and all the stress it takes to organize everything.
Now, the music is ready so you can enjoy yourself at home when you`re writing your next masterpiece.
Join the "Be a Star Show" and kickstart your music career. We`d love to have you on our team and we are ready to work together with you on your next projects.
Now pre-launching with V-Tracks. Send us an email and tell us about yourself if you are interested in joining the show as either a singer, songwriter or producer.
There will be exclusive private competitions to join when you become a member. This will be handled by a 3rd party, so there will be no cheating.
We are musicians ourselves and we are making this website because we want to help our fellow musicians with writing new songs - and getting professional results.
We will also show you that we use the music in our own productions.
You are invited to join us and become one of the artists.
Let the entertainment start...
