Hans, So good to see you back on the board . . . and more importantly to hear something new from you. Creative write and that chorus is powerful, some beautiful harmonies accented by the strings . . . and then that rockier shift in the second verse. And, wow, love the delay/reverb in that third verse. Great arrangement, mix, and production. Terrific listen! And sorry about your cat—I’ve got two and if one slipped away I’d be devastated. Maybe he’ll find his/her way back yet. Impr

Peter and Leon— Nice write, nice production, resulting in a really good tune. The tin whistle, which I thought at first was a flute, works really well—nicely melodic within the mix, which I think is sometimes difficult to do. The mix overall sounds really good to me—vocal sits nicely in the mix. Really smooth arrangement—well done! Love that stop at 3:50 and the ending from there on—very creative and well executed. Great job, guys! Deej

Greg, Lovely song, lovely melody. Just an excellent write and your vocal slays. Great song structure on the write as well. Wonderful specifics and terrific lines throughout. One of my favorites from you—just outstanding. Agree that ending is really well done! My very humble regards, Deej

I was also enjoying the song thought it was ending with some really nice harmony when it shifted into third gear. And I just rode the wave of mighty fine picking on home! Cool song and loved the arrangement guys! Josie

Hello forum friends. Listening to some great stuff on the forum!! I've spent too much time away, but always love coming back. Thanks so much for all the kind comments on my last post! I always read them all, but don't like to push my song to the top if I'm gone for several days or a week. Just know they are very much appreciated. This is a song I got the idea for when I was briefly in Seattle in Sept. of '21. I just like the way the title rolled off the tongue. Hope you enjoy. Would

The mix and mastering sounds good. I am still using Ozone 9; I haven't sprung for the upgrade yet. The lyrics are top notch, and your impassioned vocal carries the already good song.

One Time This song comes from the same two-year-old shelf as "Two Hearts." My wife euphemistically told me then that it was not one of my best. Anyway, I have completely revamped it, trying to put new life into it. I changed all the instrumentation and style, and rerecorded the vocal. There is no chorus, but I tried to make it work.

A calm song to calm the worrier. I dig your message. I'm not much of a worrier either. Nice work Marty. The sax solo is a nice touch.

Really nice Marty!!! I doubt your wife likes to worry........some of us are just wired that way, despite the recognition that it isn't fun or productive. Love the message and feel of the song, and ALWAYS love the emotion in your vocal!! Great stuff!!! Take care. Greg

Peter...super track...soulful and contemplative lyrics are set in such a good palate...I really love the transition from the acoustic to the electric...it finalizes the song with a powerful lead and expresses so much emotion...the fade is perfect...well written...well sung...and well produced!
