Cool song!! Love the vibe, love the vocal, and the lyric is fun. I always like your style. I believe you're in Sacramento. We are neighbors-I live in Davis. Thanks for posting! Take care. Greg

I totally agree with Greg. You've got a great vibe happening, top notch vocals, very classy composition and arrangement, and an exquisite mix.

Happy New Year!

Carolyne, really nice feel, thoroughly enjoyed it. The spacing on the vocals worked perfectly. What microphone do you use?

Thanks Trev, for listening. I use a Sterling Audio ST69 Condenser mic. I've been very happy with it.

Hi, Carolyne !:))


Wonderful, just great music
so superbly sung and performed !
You sing this song in a mood
that you really make me wish
that Christmas would be here
tomorrow again to give me a reason
to listen to this again and again !!:))
In fact, your song makes me feel fine
though it is a goodbye song ?
How do one explain that ???? (LOL) !!

Just simply great Carolyne !!!

Cheers
Dani

Dani,
Wow...I don't know what to say; such a nice, heartfelt compliment you have given! I guess a BIG THANK YOU is where I should start. If you, as I, believe music people are gifted with an ability to communicate emotion, your review of Goodbye to Christmas has certainly upheld that tenet. It is one of the reasons I try to be careful about what I write. You just never know to whom or what type of emotion is being elicited. Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. Have a great, and musical 2015.

Well, this is the second song I've heard of yours, and you've consistently hit a high bar with both!

Not much else to say, other than I'm looking forward to your next song. laugh

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