Inspired by a post here, I went back to some of my songs that I had shelved and
became my own co-writer to a song that I thought needed stronger verses but
couldn't complete before. Thanks for listening.

Someone Who Remembers When
© 2016 Kenny Leverett

I was thinking about a summer
Doesn’t seem that long ago
The trip we made to Memphis
One of the best times that I’ve known

Now there’s snow on the ground
In this sleepy little town
With the street lights comin’ on
Girl it’s been so long

So if you ever get lonesome
And just need someone who remembers when
Well there’s a lot of good history between us
We could start it up again
If you need someone who remembers when

Here I’m looking forward to
The first signs of spring
The chance of renewal
And all the hope it brings

So if you ever get lonesome
And just need someone who remembers when
Well there’s a lot of good history between us
We could start it up again
If you need someone who remembers when

Kenny,

This is excellent - you've got that JD Souther vibe going on... Loved it.

Just BEAUTIFUL Kenny!!! I'm so glad you're hanging out again. This is a little different than your other stuff but just as good. Your vocal has never sounded better. What is your signal chain on recording/mixing? Fiddle solo is perfect. I LOVE THIS!! Take care. Greg

Kenny,

Whatever it was that sparked you to go back to this, it was lucky for us...

MAN! this is GOOD!!! A beautiful song.

Perfect tracks for it. LOVE your vocal on this! Nice harmonies. Great mix.

One of your best! (among so many good ones). On my 3rd listen...

Awesome melody.

"So if you ever get lonesome
And just need someone who remembers when
Well there’s a lot of good history between us
We could start it up again
If you need someone who remembers when"

A big WOW!

Kenny, There is something about your songs that make them very comfortable to listen to. No doubt it has something to do with your melody choices and the tone of your voice. Good mix, good lyrics and a great vocal put this one way up there on the listenability scale. Tom

We were discussing how accessible your songs are and Tom articulated it so well.

Janice immediately noted the JDS hints - a good thing in our book. We love the lyric. The renewal of spring is a theme we often think of living in the woods as we do. Your vocal is so poignant while retaining the, for us, important sense of soul. And as mentioned the mix is nailed.

Great work.

Thanks Bob,
I never thought of JD but he was a big influence on me, Black Roses, White Rhythm And Blues Faithless Love were two of my favorites, so I am humbled to be mentioned
as having a similar vibe. Of course it also makes me think of Linda Ronstadt - Silver Blue and other great ones, thanks!

Happy New Year!

Thanks Greg!
OK, I'll try. I switched to recording on a Macbook Air this (past) year into Logic Pro.
I have a modestly priced condenser mic, xlr - I think, Focusrite Scarlett interface,
I use Nectar 2 - Folk and Sons - cut back on the preset reverb setting on just about
all my lead vocals, has EQ and compressor presets that are good. That's about it,
I use the Logic Pro built-ins for anything else, but usually am satisfied with Nectar
preset.

Thanks Charlie! I spent most of the year doing Pop or Rock songs, but my heart
always goes back to this style.

Kenny,

Very warm and enjoyable. Your revision on the original ( the title alone would be worth going back to) has me hitting replay.
Very nice upfront vocals and a fine production all round.

Thanks, not only are you probably the best writer and talent on these forums,
but the nicest and most complimentary!
It certainly means a lot to me that you like this song,
Happy New Year!

Thanks!

I read the post about how people were keeping and organizing
their songs and started looking back at some of mine.
I could certainly use better organization, I've probably
lost more than a few.

Happy New Year!

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
