As we enter 2018 I want to get back to the music I grew up on. I was going for a late 60's early 70's vibe in this. This came about when I asked my little grand daughter how old she thought I was and she said "about 80". I laughed but thought, I am looking old on the outside but on the inside I'm still a teenager! I guess I'm trying to prove it here! LOL

Very nice straightforward pop song, I really enjoy your young sounding vocals smile. Lots of nice George Harrison feel in chording and the guitar solo. Excellent overall production. Not just 60's or 70's vibe, I can hear also modern influences.

60's and 70's is the music I grew up on too. And yeah, you never feel old on the inside, funny how that works.

Great stuff Torrey, very commercial sound. I like the harmony guitars!

Cool tune Torrey. Can totally relate with looking old but feeling lick a teenager. Super vocal and backtrack. Excellent guitar as well. Excellent tone and effects. Chorus maybe octave pedal ???

As I listen to your song, I could say you seems a super teen-ager!!!
We are middle-aged but we are much younger than some today young people.

Very nice song. Great performance as usual.
I feel a bit of George Harrison's style in this song.

Happy new year

I also am a product of 60 and 70's music. I grew older but I never grew up!

This is super all the way. Great backing tracks, super vocals and lyrics along with some great guitar playing.

This is a winner.

Super, Torrey!

A really nice pop write. Terrific melody - very catchy. Your vocals in this are excellent.

Super mix. Nice guitar work throughout. Great drum sound and a good punchy bass. Everything is well balanced. I hear the 60s/70s influences, but it struck me as having a Rundgren feel to it - I think he might be pleased to call this his...

Worth several listens.

I can hear the influences, but you have developed a sound which is instantly recognizable as your own and its showcased beautifully here.
You write really memorable melodies- this is one of your best.
Fantastic guitar, a high energy vocal and excellent mix... will head over to your cd preview.

Feedback - The Way I Use Band-in-a-Box and How It Changed My Music Career

Thank you to forum user Torrey Bliss for their amazing feedback, The way I use Band In A Box and how it changed my music career!

"I wanted to put up a post about how I got started using Band In A Box in order to help someone who is just getting started using the program to be be able to see the potential uses of BIAB for a musician and explain my procedure when composing a song.

I began using BIAB about 10 years ago after seeing some things online about the program and thought it might work for me. I had just accepted a staff position as a worship leader at a medium size church (250-300 people) and had been put in charge of all music. The problem I immediately encountered was that there were no available musicians to help me. This is where BIAB saved the day. I was able to quickly construct many professional sounding songs that I would be able to use in the services and play my guitar or keyboards along with and provide an excellent set of music for our church to sing along with..."
