A really superb piece - and great collaboration.

We appreciate you saying that....very much. I'm biased, of course, smile but I do feel she did a fine job with the vocal....and she also came up with the melody and chord structure. Thanks again.

Beautiful heartfelt lyric. Really hit home. Beautiful vocal and production. Toms guitar had added such a heart wrenching feel to the song. Well done..

My only nit is the guitar is a few cents sharp. The sharpness stands out in quite a few places.


Thanks Herb! Glad you liked the production. A small number of tracks but it took some effort to get them all to cooperate with one another smile

Greg, your description nailed what we were trying to achieve..."dark and somber." Glad you liked it all and thanks for mentioning the vid. It took a while to find those photos and edit them to fit the mood. Thank you!

Great descriptive lines start to finish. Nice write.

The BAND is perfect for this - simple, sparse, subtle. Tom's guitar is the perfect compliment. Love the solo. Great drum sound.

All topped off with the best instrument of all - Janice. The voice of an angel-with-a-devilish-twinkle-in-her-eye.

Talking about putting a smile on Janice's face...wow! And you made my music week by mentioning the mix and the lyric. Thanks mr jane.

Nice video images - particularly that broken window pane heart.
Very good!

Robert


Thanks a bunch Robert. We worked to capture that mood and it very cool that you felt it. And thanks for mentioning the vocal and the video. I search for photos that I hope will "work" but also allow the listener to form their own images. Glad you like the broken pane. It was a bear to get the colors on it to fit the scheme. We do appreciate your thoughts.

I like Janice's voice as it seems to be closer to the listener, if you see what I mean, as if she is singing this "just for me", more intimate.

Really enjoyed.

Alyn
ps Band of Brothers was a brilliant series


Alyn, thanks for listening. We're glad you like the vocal. I hard to get exactly what you described and am gratified that you noticed it. We appreciate it!

I listened to this on Soundcloud before you posted it here so was lucky enough to get a sneak preview.

Highlights :-
- Lyrical imagery
- Overall production and open sound
- Tom's guitar
- The extra oomph added by the Cajon in the chorus
- No pronouns - adds to the "mystery" i.e. we don't know who Janice is singing about.

Loved it,
Jez


Reading something like this makes it all worthwhile. Thank you....big time!!

Hi Janice & Bud,

Great tune! The vocals and guitar are wonderful! Janice I love your process for writing without pronouns. I'm going to give that one a try! I would like to hear a little more reverb as well on your voice; I'm liking the tune as is but it would be interesting to hear a comparison. Thanks for sharing.

Good show Janice & Bud

We like where your imagination took it! It's really gratifying to know that you like the "you connect the dots" way we wrote this. Thanks for listening and offering your comments. Made our day!!

Thanks Pauline for listening and commenting. Unlike SoundCloud YouTube will not let you replace a file once it has been uploaded...so if I were to change the video by adding a new soundtrack I would have to create a new youtube upload (new IRL) and essentially start all over by regenerating the movie and uploading -- and losing the current link and all the viewer data. But I will change the reverb a bit and upload it to SoundCloud. Thanks for your observations!
