Hi all, here is another song written by Marinus and recorded by me. Most of the tracks are from Band in A Box but are all midi as real tracks weren't available at the time. The strings pads I think were played by me. The vocal is my nephew Kenny Driscoll who also did the harmonies and a bit of live piano. Song is about a roadie who worked for a band and fell in love with a girl from Jamestown NY during a one night stand. Gosh how often did that happen????. Hope you enjoy this and any comments are most welcome

Kenny has a beautiful voice. I would've mixed the harmonies just a little bit lower volume wise in the mix.

Still a really nice sound.

Enjoyed it.

Thanks Josie,Tommy and Steve for the comments. Josie I agree about the harmony, unfortunately the recorder used to record this is gone and along with it were the master tracks so it will have to stay the way it is. Thanks for listening.

+1 here.

I would love to hear a remix with realtracks, especially drums. But this is a top notch performance.

I agree, would loved to have heard this with real tracks and not midi, and a whole lot less reverb of the vox.
