Hi All,

On the verge of 2016 we are posting our last song of this year ;-)



It's a collaboration with South African singer-songwriter Paddy Gobel.
We had a BIAB funky instrumental project lying around which wasn't going anywhere vocalwise, so we decided to send it to Paddy.
He came up with an entirely different singing melody than we initially had in mind. The same goes for the song's theme... his granddaughter.
Anne-Marie created the video.

Hope you like it. Best wishes!

Rob & Anne-Marie

An interesting mixture of diversity between music, subject and lyrics. It all meshed well together and worked beautifully. The video helped tie everything together. Very professional at every level

Good song and good lyrics and an absolute adorable granddaughter.

You embedded the video, nice.

Neat idea and a very creative production. The mix is spot on with the lead vocal exactly where it belongs. Those harmonies are pro-fessional!

Happy New Year!

Hi there R & A-M.

What a super way to finish off the year.

Loved it all the way through, especially the sax solo with Matilda's overdubs - that was a nice touch.

Excellent mix and production, as usual.

Have a good 2016.

ROG.

Hi Rob & Anne-Marie,

great collab.
I'd like to know, if the voice overdubs and photos
are original Matilda (I see different faces).
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

nice tune. You 've got a great voice, Rob.
I always have instrumental projects that go nowhere with lyrics;
this is one of the reasons why I play the guitar as melody.

good video.

Happy 2016

It would be very hard to add anything to Charlie's response other than say we agree with every word he wrote.

You two had an incredible run this year with the frequent displays of your wonderful talent.

We look forward to many more in 2016.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
