Dear Forum Friends,

Sorry for the long absence from the forum. Life has been pretty busy this past year. That's why we decided to write a New Year's Eve song to help get things started on the right foot. Yes, I know it's February. Like I said, it's been pretty busy lately. My secret New Year's resolution was to get myself back into the studio and start writing again.

We hope you like it. It's never too late to be joyful.

Here's the link and our website:

It's New Year's, Eve

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

Hey SD ...

So nice to have you posting again! Missed you.

This sounds about as good as any New Years song I've heard - better than any I can think of. You nailed the happy, spirited feel. The horns wree a real nice choice. And like David, I really enjoyed the wide-panned vocal bursts. Cool, castchy song. Really nice!

Best to you. Take care ...

Busy day in the forum. Thanks for listening.

Dave, Thanks. I'm getting the hang vocal harmonies. They don't come naturally for me.

Leon, Hi pleased to meet you. Glad you liked it.

Alan, Thank goodness all my friends and family are well and doing fine. I hope the same for you. This pandemic teleworking routine doesn't leave much time for music. My wife and collaborator suggested a New Year's Eve song. Although I like "Old Lang Syne" and "What are you Doing New Year's Eve" I always thought we needed something more joyful, optimistic, and celebratory. I used the horns as homage to those old tunes.

Liked your creative use of the C-F two-chord motif.
Nice, positive message--I like that!
I think you're a keyboard player, and I was interested that on your bridge you took the Ab-->Bb-->Gm, C route...something that seems very natural on a keyboard, maybe not so much on a guitar.
I'll echo all the comments on the vocal panning, nice effect.
Thanks for this constructive track!
