Hey, "kybordr"...

I remember my Mother shouting up the stairs so I could hear her from behind the closed bedroom door from which this music would be blasting: "Turn that down, son!"

"No Cinderella" rocks like "rock" does. It's got that wild energy that would get all the musicians onstage in motion, all the kids crowding around the bandshell hoppin' up an down to the beat like "Energizer" bunnies, and the sound would be heard for miles around on a summer's day.

Wow - you nailed this! Right from the first couple measures I could tell I'd be enjoying this. I'm getting a strong late 70's/early 80's vibe on this one. I can imagine this being played live and filling the dancefloor within moments. It is wonderfully catchy, the vocal performance is energetic and authentic, and the arrangement is perfect.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

Excellent rocker here. Super vocal and lyrics. Super instrumentation and mix!

Two thumbs up.
My mind is like my Internet browser: 19 tabs open, 3 of them are frozen & I have no idea where the music is coming from.

64 bit Win 10 Pro - the latest BiaB and RB - Roland Octa-Capture audio interface - a ton of software and some hardware.

Cool song! Welcome to the forum! Has a nice, catchy sound. Mix sounds pretty good but vocals are a little jumbled (maybe too much processing?). Nice job with this. Keep posting! Take care. Greg

I love the layered vocals! As others have said, it's got a cool '70s vibe to it where it's easy to visualize a band up on stage playing it.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?
