Chic Speak

People had a lot to say about our inaugural tune, “You’re No Good.” It certainly made us feel like we got off on the right foot. Here are some examples:

“Congratulations on your new endeavors. I just have to say that in all of my 34 years of Square Dancing I have never heard a song as good as Scott's version of "You're no Good". OMG! First let me say, because I have never been a big fan of that particular song, it had to take a lot to impress me. Between the incredible music and his unwavering talent, I just don't even know how to put it into words. Simply Amazing! Thanks for what you are doing for Square Dance music. I plan to purchase a few of your versions for myself as I am learning to become a caller. Can't wait to hear what comes next!” – Denise Carbonell/Dancer via Facebook

"Just listened to the instrumental versions of You're No Good. I like the way you've done two different "sounds" to the music. Haven't decided which to buy...probably both...” – Tom Gray/Caller via Facebook

"I 'liked' it last time and my opinion hasn't changed. Both versions are still the best music, vocals and harmonies we've seen in this industry in years. No kidding." – Pat Carnathan (Owner/Producer of Shakedown Records) via Facebook

The good news kept coming with our second release, “A Summer Song.”

“This is a must-have. One of the best singing calls ever recorded.” – Michael Smithers (Caller) via Facebook

“ need to check out "A Summer Song" - CHIC3002.  I have gotten a wonderful response from my dancers.  One of the best "laid back" tunes in a while." – Wade Driver (Owner/Producer of Rhythm Records) via Facebook

More great reviews for release number three – “Let’s Get Away From it All.”

“I LOVE this! David Mee has such a great voice, and this song showcases it! Thank you Shauna for having him record this.” – Vicki Moeckel (Dancer) via Facebook

“Thanks VERY much for "Let's Get Away From It All" - I did it tonight to start our dance and it brought down the house!!! GREAT music!” – Deborah Carroll-Jones (Caller) via email

The comments we got for release number four, “It Feels Good” really did feel good!

“When you told me you were taking this song to the studio I went and listened to the original and thought, that's an okay song, but not my cup of tea. Your Singing Call version is BETTER than the original! I love it!” – Michael Smithers (Caller) via Facebook

“An Awesome recording! I liked both the male and the female versions. I will probably be ordering CHIC1004 a little later this week, but WOW, you have put a couple of callers on the vocals that really know how to put some feeling into the songs. They OWN that tune (as they say). Keep turning out the great music.” – Gene Turner (Caller) via Facebook

The buzz about Chic’ releases just kept buzzing.  Here are some of our favorites:

“So beautiful, it brought tears to my eyes. It's probably the best singing call ever made.” – Marion Saltel (Dancer) via email (about her son Joe Saltel's rendition of "I Will" on CHIC1013)

“I've just been editing some of my new tunes. "I WILL" Chic 1013 is a really nice old Beatles tune. How they took a slow ballady number at 105BPM and still had it sound like the original but at 123 BPM, I don't know. Brilliant job folks!!!“ – Glenn Wilson (Caller) via Facebook (about CHIC1013 – I Will)

“O.M.G... I think that is my new favorite recorded square dance song EVER!” – Scott White via Facebook (about CHIC2014 – Whatever Lola Wants)
