Hi again, here is a new composition, I have tried to take on board the comments from my last post, so see what you think.
The Instruments are mostly Sample Tank, Guitars are BinB as are Strings etc.
Thanks

Thanks for your comments, no I haven't used a pro studio, I have Cubase for production and a small home set-up.
Thanks again.

Very large sound. I might have dialed the overall reverb and those ahhs back just a bit but that's all purely subjective.

I like the way the arrangement builds. The vocal is really pretty with that wonderful Cat Stevens quality you have in your voice and it's a lovely message song.

royg -

A cool sound - pretty song. The piano and strings work well to deliver the message. When the strings drop out about 2:10 and when they come back in at about 2:30 it's a bit abrupt. A fade out and then fade back in there would be nice - a little thing.

Enjoyable.

Thanks for the comments, I did think about fade in but didn't get around to it, maybe I will give it another go and see how it sounds.

Thanks again.

Hi, Roy !:))


This is a really nice tune

Neil Diamond in your voice
but not too much (chuckle) !!
I enjoyed this one very much !!:))

Very, very nice! I really like this song and performance. I agree with the Neil Diamond comparison, and like Josie, I can hear a little Cat Stevens, when you are singing more softly. A good combination.

Roy,

This was a pleasure to hear. A very heartfelt performance coupled with musicianship on all levels - writing, arranging, presentation and production.

More please!

All the best,
Noel
