Hi,
this is a song that I have written for my wife,
I Used Band In A Box and then transferred the audio files into Logic Pro X
to mix the song..

the Band In A Box style is Jazz Funk Breezy Rhythem {75 rs}
which was great for this song, I also added some extra BIAB tracks
acoustic gtr and synth.
you can hear the track at

https://soundcloud.com/geir-borholm/i-live-to-love-you-by-geir-apra-2016

I truly hope you like it,
I've been using BIAB since 1993, and just about every song I've ever recorded
has been with BIAB. to check out other tracks please visit www.geirborholm.com

Kind Regards
Geir

Oh man, I TOTALLY dig this. I love this style. What a great song. You did a really spectacular job with this, and really recalled some good old days of classic songwriting.

This song is just too much heaven!! Just making a BGs pun! Really nicely performed and put together! Mix sounds great. I'm a big BG fan from the old days. Really enjoyed this! Take care. Greg

Geir,

What a sweet song for your wife and a pro sound in every regard. You bullseyed that vibe and the I mean it from the heart y'all was a cool add for a bit of modern spice.

Wow, using BIAB since 1993! I'd say you've got a pretty good handle on it. (understatement) grin

Well done.

Hi there Sundance,

Thank you so much for your kind words, I truly do Appreciate them,

Yes BIAB has been the best writing tool for me,
very easy to get around, especially when your a song writer,
I write in so many different styles so I needed a program that would
accommodate everything I do,

Thanks again,
and Kind Regards
Geir..

Hey Janice & Bud,

Thank you for your warm welcome and sincere words,
I have been a song/writer for many years,
It's great fun and I thoroughly enjoy it,

I have my own studio in which I record many different artists
and and also help with arrangements when needed,
I love preforming Live, but the studio is where I get a chance to
get creative, and of cause using BIAB is an amazing tool,
along with other gear that I have,

Thanks Again,
Kind Regards
Geir...

It seems a very Bee Gees song both in melody and in the way you sing.

Great the refrain.

I don't like the rap part.

Geir,
Wow! Why have you waited so long to join the Forum? We've been missing out!
I love this song. I haven't scrapped up the courage to break out my falsetto but you embolden me to do so.
Please post more!

Hi there SpaceDog,

Thank you for your encouragement, To be honest I didn't realize there was a
forum,
I've been extremely busy working with other artists, Recording, Producing and so on,
so to get time to sit down and do something for my self gets put back, plus I have
a large family to keep happy,
I've also spent a lot of time touring, but I've slowed down on the touring side now,
so hopefully I'll have more time to do other things,

I hope I can upload some more stuff soon,

Have a great day,
Kind Regards
Geir,
