Very soothing and beautifully sung, Steve.
The production is just right- simple, with just enough instrumentation to keep the flow.
The stately melody and natural imagery reminded me of Jesse Winchester`s ballad Biloxi.

Absolutely beautiful Steve! Your vocal is outstanding (along with the backing vocals). Your playing sounds great also. But more than that, the song is great and will touch many people. Thanks, Torrey.

What a wonderful song. Beautiful. I really enjoyed the harmonies on this one and for me, everything sets perfectly in the mix. You have produced a very compelling write to go with the excellent arrangement. I truly enjoyed this.

"And if I listen close, I hear the angels' song
And in the midnight hour I know it won't be long
Til the sunshine ushers in another dawn
And bigger dreams are born"

A very nice write, Steve. Beautifully sung. Lovely arrangement.

A terrific listen. Always like how "comfortable" your vocals are. Sincere, confident, strong.

Beautiful song

Your attention to detail is excellent

to me this is a stop and smell the roses,
be still and be amazed at God's creations and love

this is one to be proud of

Hello, Steve

Very beautiful song!
Your main vocal and the backing vocals are outstanding.
As Robert said, the production is just right- simple, with just enough instrumentation to keep the flow.
Hammond organ solo is very pleasant.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Thanks, Robert! I appreciate your comments. I went back and listened to Biloxi after reading your comment. I haven't listened to that one in decades! I can see where you get the comparison. I take that as a real compliment. Winchester was a good writer!

Wow, so good! Everything about this is top notch. Love the vocals, especially when you brought in the harmonies. Great hearing the live instruments in there also. Mix is perfect!
Really, really good, on my second listen smile

Great song Steve, beautiful lyrics and vocal delivery.

The playing is excellent on the "live parts"--you have a very nice touch.

I can see why people are streaming your music so much. It is great!!

Steve, I am late and everything that I wanted to say already has been said, i.e beautiful song, outstanding lyrics and vocal, great job on playing your own instruments,etc etc etc.

All I can add is if this were playing on the radio I would immediately go out and buy the CD.

This is definitely a keeper.

Steve,

This is the epitome of simplicity at its most beautiful. A superb arrangement and vocals that are so comfortable for the ears and the mind. This is splendid in so many ways. Standing "O" from both of us.

Tom pretty much wrapped it up! This is one of my few favorites of yours among many favorites. It's meditative and really, really BEAUTIFUL!! Take care. Greg

Re: New Song - Another Dawn - 04/10/17 11:51 AM

Busy or not it came out just fine.

The melody, lyric and vocal are all so supportive of one another. And your playing wonderfully complements the above. As in the dictionary definition of complements (with the "e" smile ) states, "a thing that brings to perfection."

And from Greg, we'll borrow "...meditative and really, really beautiful."

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Steve...

this is the kind of writing I've come to expect from you... lush and intricately woven with subtle background patterns and a message that resonates with any spirit whose hope extends beyond the confines of a temporal existence!

Your talents are varied, and they provide the unique ingredients that set your songs apart from everyone else's (although I guess that statement is kind of generic, since everyone's uniqueness shapes their music. )

But I'm speaking specifically about how your faith influences your lyrics in an infinitely expansive way. Your performing and mixing talents are the icing on the cake.

There are lots of people in this forum who are doing a great job of showing what is possible with Band in a Box. And you are one of them. But you are one of the few who shows how it can be used as a ministry. I like that about your songs, and I respect your willingness to use your gift of music in that direction.

Steve,

This is such a mighty presentation. I don't know what words I can use to tell you just how beautiful this sounded to me. Everything resonated with magnificence. You took me to places that no song has ever taken me before. I really enjoyed this journey.

May good things come your way,
Noel
