Once again, I have been out of pocket for the past month. I finally had time this afternoon to put some work into writing a song that has been rolling around in my head for the past week or so. (Thanks to Band In A Box, I can put together these little songs on a very limited time schedule!) In addition to the RealTracks/RealDrums, I played some orchestration using Garriton, and some sofware instruments in Logic Pro X. I hope you like it!

I Found You There

Here are the RT/RD's...
RealTracks in song: 1162:Bass, Acoustic, CelticReel Ev16 110
RealTracks in song: 1945:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm GroovinFolk Ev 085
RealTracks in song: 664:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm SouthernRock Ev 085 (A:fpick)
RealTracks in song: 1601:Mandolin, Rhythm Pop16Melodic Ev 065
RealTracks in song: 2335:String Quartet, Rhythm PopHall Ev 085
RealTracks in song: 1856:Cello, Background PopCountry Ev 085
RealDrums in Song: PraiseWorshipShine^03-a:Kick, HiHat , b:Snare, HiHat Slightly Open

And here are the lyrics...

I Found You There
Copyright Stephen W. Young

When moonlit shadows dance across the ground
And morning frost is in the air
A new day comes to me without a sound
I know that I will find You there

When troubles come to take my dreams away
And questions fill my mind with fear
I see the beauty of another day
And I know that I have found You there

I see You in the clouds of morning
And in the sunshine of the day
The pouring rain
The gentle breeze
They all sing Your song of praise

I've seen the beauty of another day
And I know that I have found You there
I know that I have found You there

Hi Steve,

This is so very, very beautiful.

On a writing level, the melody and its arrangement are superb and your performance rings with honesty and sincerity. It sits perfectly. To add to this, the lyrics are wonderfully concise and alive with vivid imagery. Songwriting doesn't get better than this.

On a production level... wow! You always manage to take my breath away with your ability to orchestrate and to mix songs.

It's great to have you back posting. I learn so much from listening to what you do! Even if it's only once a month, that's much better than once a year.

All the best for 2015 smile

Noel

Defiantly Celtic.
I did like this tune.

Very soft and mellow.
Would loved to have heard some harmonies.

Well written good work.
Rob

Hi Steve,

All of your songs set a high bar and I'm always excited to see you post.

This is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard.
Words fail me.

God bless you.

Steve,

Always great to see you back...

A beautiful song. An elegant write.

Your typically beautiful vocals and orchestration. Your strings are always so tastefully done and perfect for the song.

Studio quality everything. A joy to listen to.

Hi Steve,

What a fantastic song, great vocals and lyrics!

A beautiful mix too and I loved the way it builds throughout the song. That minor chord at 3:22 is a great way to lead in to the ending. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Steve!

Glad to hear something from you again! Everything you've ever posted has been superb, and this song is too! I'll start by agreeing with Floyd, who said:

The Garritan strings in this add a lot of richness and tonal variability to the song... I've been trying to squeak by with regular ol' GM strings, but there is no comparison... next to your songwriting (which is the star of the show) the strings are clearly the co-star from my point of view.

One of the things that I always notice about your songs is that in spite of the layers of instruments you may include in a song, everythings comes in and out of the mix seamlessly. Finding the right spot in the mix for each track is an art you seem to fully understand.

And of course, I like the fact that your songs are usually about faith and family. Are you familiar with Fernando Ortega? This song reminded me of some of his music.

You should talk to Garritan about getting an endorsement deal.. because I'm gonna go buy what I just heard... wink You may be their best salesman.

Beautiful song!! Love the sparse, airy arrangement and the way it evolves. Strings work perfectly. I wouldn't change a thing. Great work! Take care. Greg

Steve, You continue to astound with your high level of writing, musicianship and production skills. The vocals have so much presence and clarity it is almost startling (in a good way). The strings are brilliantly composed and played. This is a write, performance and mix of the highest quality. Tom

Great job. Was this a Christian song? It wasn't clear who the subject of the song was.

The only nit I have is on the bass. It tended to boom a few times but that could have simply been the sub on this computer system.

"When troubles come to take my dreams away
And questions fill my mind with fear
I see the beauty of another day
And I know that I have found You there"

Amen. Try to put aside yesterday and tomorrow
and find it today.

I hear a great write and vocal presented with
an incredibly effective soundstage. Everything
sits in it's respective place so well. Really Nice.

Thanks for the chance to hear this.

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
