This song is about my (Anne-Marie's) sister who died recently.
Although her cancer was cured she suffered from some terrible side effects. She decided not to go on. Although understandable her decision came as a shock to us all.
Composing this song for her, helped accepting it.

First I am so sorry for your loss - such a hard thing to face.

The song and video are both absolutely beautiful. So moving.

Well done.

WOW what a great tribute!

I really liked your arrangement, vocals, and especially the lyrics. I was drawn in right from the start!

Rob and Anne-Marie,

So very sorry to hear of your loss. This song is a beautiful as I'm sure she was. People pass on but what they leave behind lives on and it's obvious she left a lot of warmth and love behind. A simply gorgeous song that further embellishes the time you had with her and the precious memories she scattered about. Beautifully done!

Alan & Di

Wow... cool tune on a difficult subject.

I have 2 songs on my site that were inspired by folks who had cancer... one is recovered and the other passed on.

It's probably the hardest kind of song to write. But as you pointed out, it can be cathartic.

Thanks Herb,
Yes it can be cathartic.
We already listened to some songs on your website, which two songs are you referring to?

Wow, where to start? My condolences on your loss. Your production here is so good, everything stands out like you were in my living room performing live. I love that you went with such a simple arrangement. Just so well done. And I'm a big fan of your videos and this one is no exception. Marianne's photo at the end is beautiful and haunting with the music you have written for her.

RealBand® Turns 12!

RealBand® for Windows® is your all-in-one audio workstation and accompaniment program, and if you've purchased a copy of Band-in-a-Box® for Windows in the last decade, it's been included in your purchase!

We released RealBand in July 2008, along with Band-in-a-Box® 2008.5.

"RealBand brings a new level of ease and flexibility to anyone creating recordings. Record your own tracks, type in the chords, pick a style, and then add any MIDI or audio (Real) tracks to follow your chords - all in a single program. For example, type in chords to your song, generate a RealDrums track, record in your guitar and vocal parts. Then put on your 'arranger' hat and have some fun automatically adding RealTracks - maybe a guitar solo, or pedal steel background for the bridge."

We hope everyone enjoys using RealBand, which combines some great features from our PowerTracks Pro Audio program with the powerful accompaniment features from Band-in-a-Box®!

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Spanish for Windows is Here!

¡Hay más de 50 nuevas características en Band-in-a-Box® 2020! Hay mejoras en RealTracks (RealTracks Vocal de Sonido más Suave, RealTracks Engrosamiento, RealTracks "Find-a-Sub" y MultiRiffs). La mayoría de los RealDrums ahora tienen RealCharts (con notación de batería precisa). Hay un nuevo navegador de Artistas RealTracks para encontrar información / biografías / enlaces / listas de RealTracks en todos los artistas. Un nuevo Navegador de Funciones permite al usuario nuevo u "olvidadizo" encontrar y usar fácilmente la mayoría de las funciones / teclas de acceso rápido / documentos desde una sola ventana. Ecualizar Tempo permite cambiar una canción de rubato grabada a un tempo fijo. Tiempo de audio mejorado / estiramiento de tono (Elastique) incluido. Hay mejoras en el Selector de Canciones, Bajo/Batería o Batería solo Auto-Intros, 3.400 títulos añadidos, mejoras MusicXML, guitarra para "Zurdos" y "Vista de estudiante", mejoras de Arrastrar y Soltar, Ventana Múltiple del Mago del Acorde de Audio y mucho más!

COMPRE/ACTUALIZE Y DESCARGUE YA!

Video - Entering More Than 4 Chords Per Bar in Band-in-a-Box!

One of our latest support videos created by Tobin shows off a great workaround for entering more than 4 chords per bar in your Band-in-a-Box song, using a combination of half-time and normal RealTracks - check it out!

Video Testimonial - Dennis Dearing Talks Band-in-a-Box®

Dennis remembers Band-in-a-Box® from years ago, but his connection to Mike Harrison and hearing him talk about the RealTracks is what really got him excited about the program!

Hear his thoughts and see how he uses the Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin for his projects with his Video Testimonial:
