Been working on this off and on for a couple of months. I did not do this one for my usual band "Acoustic Smoke" but for my new solo project "Joe and the Reluctant Prophets" I put it out on BIAB using loops entirely but for all my layered vocals of course. That means there is no BIAB style or instruments being used, but, BIAB is really good at getting all my many loops to play nicely together, follow the same tempo and even the same key. It's a cool feature I use often.

Welcome back Joe!! I remember you posting some really nice stuff about a year or more ago. This is really nicely done-cool music and some great lyrical images. Great work!! Take care. Greg

Joe,
This is really good - lots going on with all the layers of vocals and your looped instruments sound great.
I like the way you brought things down in the last verse - adds drama to the chorus/ending.

Robert

I remember some of earlier posts too. Love your work. It's always top notch.

I enjoyed this one too. Nice use of loops and as always, excellent vocals.

Interesting, I see PG Music has already thrown this song into three of their PG Radio lists on SoundCloud. Cool.

I liked David’s comment of rootsy , this was home spun shanty right off the coal face taking all that’s happening around us with mother nature kicking back. Well written, well arranged, well sung
