I'm looking at this objectively and ............I will try to be kind here..................
Mate.......Its a great thing to want to be in the music industry and if you play guitar,,,,,be a guitarist, if you can play something else then please sell that to a band. If you are a songwriter then get folk to sing your songs.
But I have to say here.....................sorry........... you just really have no vocal ability and I don't mean I don't like your voice as that is subjective. You just really cannot and I mean CANNOT sing.
I fear if you keep this up you will lead yourself down the road of ridicule and people laughing behind your back.
You just don't have it.
Hopefully you won't take offence. I'm really trying to be honest with you.
But..........all the best if you decide to follow your dream.
It is very difficult to listen to your voice subjectively on bed of roses because the vocals obviously have a lot of effects on them. I listened to the other tracks and can see that you developed a very classic rock style; not my cup of tea but lots of people like it. The arrangement of 1935 is very good. I think it is 1935 is your best song for the reasons stated and Every Day is your weakest, because it rythymically all over the place.
In my humble opinion your singing lacks confidence; you aren't reaching the notes sometimes and your singing isn't great because you don't properly understand your voice. Everyone has a singing voice and you need to learn how to control keeping your voice in key and be confident doing it with lots of different types of songs.
Perhaps concentrate for a while on just playing guitar and singing and recording yourself just by placing a mic in the room. Set up a drum beat or metronome or simple drum beat in your earphones and get practicing. There are loads of guitar chords and lyrics on ultimateguitar.com record them and listen back to them a couple of days after so you be more subjective on what you done right and what your doing wrong.
sounds like you have [at best] a guitar sound you could hone within a few months - but vocals are, being as nice as possible, probably the worst i've ever heard in all my life - and i'm thinking possibly this is what you're aiming for because there's not a chance somebody could post up a song like EVERYDAY [especially the screech at 3m04s] with the hope of praise falling on them. constructively criticising here.. take a gigantic step back from the mic and consider forming a band on guitar or bass duty instead. backing vocals require just as much attention to pitch, tone and delivery so i'd give that a miss too.
In all seriousness, don't listen to these cunts. It's not that you can't sing, you just can't sing like Jon Bon Jovi. Thank fuck says I.
Find your own voice people like Ian Dury and Joe Strummer made a whole career out of not really being able to sing, as long as you've got an interesting voice yuo are comfortable in anything is possible.

I haven't listened to it, but are some of ya not being a bit hard on the guy? You're getting on like he's gone out to offend yas. If it's really that bad why not just be like, "not there yet lad", instead of all this "give up, you suck" stuff. Or, is there a back story I'm not aware of... cloak and dagger, skullduggery, top secret espionage stuff.
