Hi Rob and Anne-Marie

Had to listen as London was mentioned grin (I've worked in London most of my life). The song and harmonies reminded me of some early beautiful south songs.

Really enjoyed it.

Great stuff!! Great vibe and excellent production and vocals! Love the somewhat retro sound (I'm a product of the 60s and 70s). Looking forward to more. Take care. Greg

Anne-Marie and Rob,

A terrific sound. Nice production and mix! Wonderful vocals - and harmonies...

A first post, but obviously, not your first recording/production - sounds very "seasoned". Well done.

Welcome!

Mighty fine tune, good singing and I like duets, adds some variety. Nice lead break, too. Welcome to the forum and hope to hear more from you all. The video made me a little dizzy, though (ha, ha). I stuck to the music!

Enjoyed this very much. Pretty arrangement and vocals.

Like your sound and the way you mixed the midi with the RTs.

Welcome to the forum!

Hi Rob & Anne-Marie ...

Welcome to this great forum! Hope you enjoy it here as much as Di and I do.

Great song and video. Everything about this is excellent. Harmony is fabulous and the arrangement is great!

Di and I both thought it sounds like something Dire Straits might have done but with somewhat different instrumentation. Thanks for a great listen! Look forward to more ....

Indeed.... I agree with the previous comments.

In particular the harmonies are really well done and thought out.

The mix, overall sounds pretty good for the speakers I'm listening on.

Good job on the writing. I liked a few things in the lyrics.... nice colorful "painting of a picture with words"....

Well done and a really nice debut in the user forum. I got a feeling we'll be hearing more good stuff from you guys in the future.

Yet another hi and welcome to the forums!

I agree with everything that has been said thus far, great vocals, backing tracks and mix. This is a very professional sounding song, especially for a first post so I think that you two are seasoned pros.
