This is a R&B Bluesy Christian song of mine from 2009. It was one of the first songs I wrote with BIAB. We didn't have horns then so I remixed it adding some horns and added some harmony to the original vocal with the BIABettes. Also I used Reaverb (convolution reverb) which was a new experience and remixed it in Reaper.

RT's are:
Drums Nashville Pop 16
B3 Organ 425
Bass 521
Soloist Guitar Blues BB 576
Rhythm Guitar Elec Blues BB 573
Rhythm Guitar Blues Roadhouse 581
Horn Section R&B 2114

Link and lyrics below.

Thank you for listening and your thoughts are appreciated.

He's Faithful

©2009 Josie Beck

When the light goes dark and problems swirl around
We hope against hope for some kind of easy way out
Cryin' Father oh have you forgotten me
But He never fails to show me

Chorus:
Wohoh God is not a man that He should lie no no
I'm learning now to trust Him with my life yeah yeah
His word is solid rock
He's gonna do what He said He will
He's faithful faithful

I confess there were moments I wasn't sure
When people let me down and feelin' insecure
Cryin' Father oh help my unbelief
But He never fails to show me

Bridge:
On Christ the solid rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand


Josie

Hi Josie,

Very nice! A steady and professional sound.
I also very much like the vocal harmonies.
Is the convolution reverb a vst (compatible with cubase)?

Regards,
Rob

Bull's eye!!! This song really hits on all cylinders! The arrangement is right in the pocket. The music and lyrics marry perfectly. The only thing I would change (just an opinion) is I would eq the vocal with more bite, and run it through a bigger reverb, maybe gated or at least with some slap back/echo on it. Really inspiring and spirited song!! Killer!! Take care. Greg

Thank you Rob. I appreciate that very much.

I tried Googling but didn't see anything that said Reaverb was compatible with Cubase so I'm assuming it's not. It's one of the two reverbs that comes with Reaper. If you should ever want to try Reaper it's fully functional to try for free.

Cool tune. Nice, almost funky, beat going on.


As far as the reverb.... if it's a VST, and the DAW in question has VST compatibility, yes... it's supposed to work.

Nicely done. This is a good arrangement and I think there would be a lot of gospel quartets across the Bible Belt who would love to add this song to their playlist. The vocal and harmonies were stellar.

Funky and smooooooooth. An inspiring use of the horns -- gotta try that some time. Very nice easy going production that works perfectly with your vocal which, BTW, just flows so naturally through the song. An effortless feel -- nothing forced, nothing contrived....honest comes to mind. The mix sounds great on our monitors. Classy in all aspects.

Josie,

This is my favorite of anything I've ever heard of yours.

Solid in every regard. A good write - and a great fresh angle. A very tasty production. Nothing overdone and a lot of "nice little touches". A smooth, confident vocal. Great job with the BIABettes!

I like those drums for this. Nice guitar licks. Cool horns - one of the best applications I've heard of those...

Well done! A very good listen.

Great groove, horns and vocals. I may have to investigate those horns soon. Works for me!

Greg,

Thank you very much. What nice things to say.
I was driving home one day with the radio turned off enjoying some quiet time when this song idea started singing in my head. I'm so glad you liked it.
This convolution is new to me but I'm going to experiment more with it. I tried several larger hall impulses but went with what you hear which ironically is a church.

Thank you Herb,

Glad you liked it. It is a funky beat - I was just a few months out of a Christian Funk band when I wrote this so the beat was an influence of that I guess.

Reaverb is a reverb that comes with Reaper - I'm not sure it's available as a stand alone VST.

Thank you so much. I never really thought about anybody else doing it - but I sure wouldn't mind.

Thank you JosieC.,

As busy as I know you are these days, it was so sweet of you to drop in for a listen and comment. I appreciate that a lot. Best of luck with your new album. BTW, I miserably failed that Youtube challenge of a video a week....LOL! Maybe I'll make the next one......fingers crossed.

J&B,

What nice things to say. I really appreciate it. Thanks so much to both of you for making my day.

On the PS. - I probably shouldn't confess I was seriously tempted to ask one of the "Axemen" on here to play but then I figured I'd better stay with ol' Jack since he was there from the beginning. grin

Floyd,

What a sweet review. Thank you very much. I'm so happy you liked it. It's great that all the time and effort I put in remixing this worked. I was really unsure if anyone here would relate to an R&B Christian song with a funky beat. I'll stop rambling and just say again - thank you.

BIABettes - hey, who knew until you shared what was possible with a little experimenting.
