Pip, I have listened to a number of your tracks and suspect that the home recording does not do you justice. Home recording can be tricky and often does not turn out as one might expect.
Try getting someone to record you at a live session. Modern video cameras can give surprisingly good sound reproduction. Here is an example of a song I do. One live recording, and one home recording. Although the live one has one or two mistakes with the words and a little impromptu whistling it seems to me to be the much better version. Probably the adrenaline surge which is hard to reproduce at home. A good argument for keeping music live.
