This is a song I wrote in 2005 but just now got it put together. It's about helping others. I was reminded by a person at my church one day that we are like spokes in a wheel , which help carry the load. When some of the spokes are missing it makes it more of a burden for the rest. I thought, that needs to be a song. So here it is. I truly hope it's a blessing to someone. Thanks for listening and please comment. Lyrics are in the YouTube video. Torrey.

Torrey,

A very good punchy sound to this.
Your vocals sound fine to me and the song really showcases your guitar playing ( love that intro!)
The bridge adds a nice touch of pop sophistication.

Torrey,

Good song. The tracks are outstanding! Those pushed are done really well.

It rocks. The guitar work is terrific.

Vocals are good, too. But there is something about them that seem a bit too out-front. I think they should "sit in the mix" more...

Torrey, this sure is something else. Different from you usual songs I think.
But it sure rocks. Very nice vocals, and I agree with Floyd they could be a little bit more 'in' the mix.
But that's a small nit ;-)

Thanks Floyd for your comments. I actually worked on the volume levels on vocals and re-uploaded. I cleaned them up a bit and was able to lower them some. Maybe not enough. I had more trouble getting this one right compared to other songs I've done. T

Hello, Torrey

Great Rock song!
British sound.
Your vocals and lead guitar are so nice.
As you said, I also think MIDI Drums or something else are better choice if there are many pushes in the track.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Torrey,

Amen Brother! Way to go. Love the song and the message.

By the way, Little Jimmy Waits told me to tell you he listened to this song and it cheered him up some.

You have a great vocal range Torrey and I think your melody lines come natural to you. I loved this song and also the message behing it.
Well done Torrey on another great arrangement.
