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!

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

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

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!

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.

Hi Rob and Anne Marie,
Love this production,
A feel good song, enhanced by those owls... Loved the video!

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.

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 ;-)
