Hello everyone,

This is our new song:

Wiser Woman

Rob wrote this song for me (for my birthday) back in 2013.
He used the program One Man Band for it (similar to BiaB, but without real tracks). We decided to create a Biab version of it. Contrary to the original version, I did the backing vocals here.
We decided to use the original video. In 2008 4 long-eared owls were born in a tree behind my house. They got quite used to the sight of me (not afraid at all), so I got lots of chances to use my camera. The video features an almost full rotation of the mother owl's head at 1.27 m.

Style is C_EAGLES.STY (Eagles Style)

379:Bass, Electric, Country DoubleTime Ev 088
~589:Banjo, Bluegrass Doc Ev 100 (Rhythm)
2449:Guitar, Electric, Background, PopDreamyBrent Ev 085 (CustomFX)
1946:Mandolin, Rhythm ModernCountrySync Ev16 100
378:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming DoubleTime Ev 088
1757:Accordion, Rhythm Pop8ths Ev 085
Nashville2Beat^01-a:Sidestick , b:Snare, Ride

Here is the link to the original version which is (of course) more dear to me:

Wiser Woman original version

Anne-Marie

Lyrics:

Wiser woman you can
shed some light on my beliefs
As you find them
right at your front door

As we rush through the days and sometimes
hide in the night when I'm
miles away from my trusted door
yet feeling quite secure

That was the night
but here comes the day
with a desire to achieve
and to make the world see what we can do

Reminiscing the times old songs
come into mind will they
take us back to those rhythms and rhymes
that used to be our kind

And we will rush through the days
but sometimes fly in the night while I'm
miles away from my trusted door
still feeling quite secure

Wiser woman this was another year
that's kind of special in a way
and it makes me wanna stay
another day

Yep, cute owls!

Rhyming secure and door was inspired.

As usual, impeccably done!

R & AM, The song is very well written and recorded. The overall volume was very low and I felt it could have been longer. I enjoyed my listen. Tom

"And we will rush through the days

Great lines amongst many others.
Very nice vocals and a super
arrangement to support them.

We have three species of owls
on our property and really
enjoy them as we enjoyed this
vid.

Hi Rob & Anne-Marie,
This song has got a really nice feel, excellent vocals. The banjo and mandolin fit in just so perfectly.
Great effort actually!
Thanks

Hey guys... I really like this!!!

Awesome arrangement. Crisp. clean. modern, but familiar.. loved the instrumentation - super mix.

The processing on the vocal (Rob's) was perfect. I would have like to hear more of Anne-Marie in this one (meaning, a bit louder).

Good write.

Super.

floyd

Hi Rob and Anne Marie,
Love this production,
A feel good song, enhanced by those owls... Loved the video!
Production was at your usual standard, agree with Floyd though.
Spring is coming! Thanks for giving me that feel ☺

Hi Rob and Anne-Marie.

Yet another brilliant production! You two sure have pizzazz when it comes to creating and presenting music both aurally and visually. As floyd said "Awesome arrangement. Crisp. clean. modern, but familiar.. loved the instrumentation - super mix." I could not have put it better!

All the best,
Noel

Pretty song, and as usual production was tops!! This had a little bit of retro sound for me (Glen Campbell or someone like that). That was my era. I agree with Floyd that AM's vocal was a bit soft. Beautifully done!! Take care. Greg

Hi Rob & Anne Marie,

Great track with a very slick and professional sound.

The video had me fascinated. You're SO lucky to have been able to film that.

ROG.

Thank you Tommy,

yes, the overall volume.... We are trying to mix our recordings as loud as possible in Cubase, trying to avoid 'peaks', but maybe we shouldn't be that careful ;-)

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!"

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."
