"Rob4580"...

You, sir, are a balladeer! Every time I listen to your songs I think, "This man could compose and perform songs even if he was hard-of-hearing".

That's because your songs seemingly always tell a story, their use of Band-in-a-Box styles is varietal, and considering your current offering, "Cool, Calm, and Callous", downright adventurous.

And then, there's your singing, which is full-bodied and (dare I say it?) heroic-sounding, even. Keep all this up, and soon somebody's gonna steal you away from the User's Forum!

Thoroughly entertained,

LOREN

Hello, Rob

Sad song!
Very fascinating.
As Alan said, Your voice works perfectly for this one.
It reminds me of Presley's film "Fun in Acapulco”, for some reason.
I heard Mariachi for the first time in the movie at that time.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

You should be proud of this one, Rob smile Thanks so much for sharing!


Hello Deryk. Thank your kind words. Rob
