a little about me...

about me...

I'm proud to be a band geek! That's exactly why I've written a song called just that. I've been playing music since the third grade and haven't stopped since - clarinet, sax, bass guitar, keys, guitar and vocals is what I do. Composing is what drives me though and my love for writing impactful, meaningful songs for the world to hear

 is what I strive to do - never stop doing what you love...never!!

Ralph Renaissance
the wait is over
Ralph has done it again. I'm very jealous but at the same time I'm enjoying this track. This is a awesome Instrumental. I wish I could write something that sounds cool like this. it has a deep somber piano melody that sets up & takes you on a journey. The lead guitars are screaming with pain as the bass and drums are the foundation of the doom and gloom. this is a true masterpiece . I'm gonna give this man another 5 out of 5

the wait is over
Hey Ralph, really enjoyed listening to your music. It’s the kind of rock that you can listen to for hours. Some great musicians playing. The screaming guitar licks were really complemented by the great piano/ keyboard. My favourite part was when you all brought it down, you could feel the emotional change in the music. If anything, I would say to have a little more of that but would add, well done! Rock on, Kenny Ray

The Chosen One 

there's only so much you can do - review

"Ralph Tomaselli" has sent me a request to review his song "there's only so much you can do". Sometimes, I will find out later that the artist never sent a request to be reviewed and that Number One Music has sent out an algorithm. Well, Ralph Tomaselli didn't really send a request to review his song "there's only so much you can do", I was just running low on Bling so I went searching for someone I could pick on. So, like thumbing through a phone book, closing my eyes and putting my finger to a name, Ralph Tomaselli became the choosen one. Unfortunately for me, I picked the wrong guy to pick on, I can only say this stuff kicks ass!!!

broken - drooble review 

piper sins - Los Angeles 

"...and after all was said and done could we find the peace and the kind of knowing it takes to fix ourselves from within."
An excellent song and piece of music. Very feel worthy, from the sadness of being broken to getting back up, walking it off and having a will power to pick the pieces of ourselves up off the floor and to keep moving and breathing to try again to succeed. Awesome lyrics and well sung. Solid drums, bass and guitars played their parts well and well rehearsed so that it's tight. A great song composition!

the way she makes me feel: 

excellent! thumbs up! wow, sounds like a song from elton John. I especially like the orchestral parts of the song.

Very interesting and epic beginning. Vocals started also very well. Very good pattern of melody. All is done very tasty. Song pretends on something very intellectual

to love you:

rare jewel! after rummaging thru a few songs like I always do I decide to give up until I found your music - you know what you're doing and the world is yours

Inspirational! Mr. Tomaselli is a multi genre artist and it shows in this song.. A fantastic melody and keyboard/piano sound with great lyrics. The track blends with an epic sounding guitar part. This song is a great listen and a must listen on N1M.

Great vocal performance! I love the way you use your voice on these songs, you are a very talented songwriter. I really like the little backups you do as well. they fit with the song very well. I enjoy the strings most of all very beautiful sounds.

You really have great dynamics in your music, the way you use those strings, keys and brass instruments to evoke emotions is world-class my friend you are doing great stuff. great drum and guitar solos towards to the end I love that do more of those mate!

I love the messages in your songs! They reflect some of the things I think about. I think a lot of people will be able to relate with them too. The guitar on this is really good! The backup vocals and main vocals are great! I felt energetic listening to this. The hook is catchy so I just wanted to sing along.

Monopoly Review
 Another great track from a fine musician/composer.
The lyrics of "Monopoly" have a lot to say. This is a very insightful piece from Ralph Tomaselli. This acoustic rendition is a very beautiful piece. The vocal styling is excellent and typically Ralph. Musically, this is a rather haunting acoustic progression that forms a great unit with the lyric/vocal presentation. Another great piece from an excellent musician/vocalist!

a cinematic ballad of genius
Ralph Tomaselli's song called ( The Way She Makes Feel) is a cinematic ballad of genius. The music sounds like a romantic movie soundtrack and its short and sweet to its not over bearing. all in all its a good song. probably good for a wedding reception . I give this track a 5 out of five.

Smooth is the key
Now I remember who Ralph Tomaselli's voice reminds me of. A smooth Tom Waits; with a little Joe Cocker vibrato. Smooth is the key, and the smooth sine wave of Ralph's voice takes away all the sawtooth edge, and that is a style all his own. The piano is also smooth but the piano has a limited dynamic range compared to Ralph's voice. With that voice I sometimes feel pain, joy, self confidence, and always the thrill of making beautiful music. Thanks again Ralph, I'll let you go for now but I must listen one more time.

Inevitable - N1M
thank you very much for sending your song for review. Well, I find the song very nice, it is a very beautiful rock ballad which reminds me the old times when I was still in Cuba. The song probably needs a little more punch because it is a little weak with the overall sound but, I review the song, not the sound of the song. It is a great ballad, the voice is very nice and the instruments fit well inside, congratulations on such nice composition, I wait for more, many greetings from Germany, Alfredo from King Mambo
