A song of tribute and honor to a friend who finally ended a long battle with cancer and went to her eternal reward in heaven. Her faith and positive outlook on life was like a bright light that shined on all those who knew her. I want to take up that light and help others. That's the inspiration for this song. I hope it lifts the faith of all who listen. Lyrics are in the YouTube video.
Thanks, Torrey

A wonderful song, Torrey, thank you. On the right on the YouTube page was "Feel You In The Wind", so I listened to it, too, and enjoyed it.

Torrey,

I enjoyed the ebb and flow of this song - it sounds marvellously Beatlesque to me. The production is very well done and your vocal,especially on the chorus and harmonies, as good as I`ve come to expect from you.
A fine and uplifting tribute.

Robert

Very, very nice, Torrey! Great tribute to Dana. What a legacy to inspire such a powerful song. And the message is great.

As to the music, I love the "Beatle-esque" feel to it. Great arrangement, and your vocals really shine.

Thanks for sharing.

Blessings to you,

Steve

Beautiful song and tribute. I hear so many elements of the music that I've
loved all my life, ELO, Beatles, the production is among the best I've heard
here on this forum. Touching write, excellent job on this.

Torrey,

Beautiful. Good write - lyrically and especially melodically.

Strong vocal - one of your best. Excellent arrangement and instrument choices throughout. Nice orchestration - very Beatlesque.

Excellent mix. Great listen. Really well done!

Agree with all of this!! Strings/drums/vocals are very Beatle-esque (right out of the Sgt. Pepper era). This is wonderful music and a great tribute. Awesome!! Take care. Greg

Hello, Torrey

Very nice and beautiful tune!
And very Beatles-like.
The chord progression of the starting is wonderful.
Your vocals and chorus are excellent.
Strings of the ending are also effective.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Torrey,

What a wonderful tribute to and celebration of your friend's courage and strength. I found the lyrics very moving. In addition, the music, your arrangement, your singing and your production are outstanding. Everything sounded radio-ready professional to me.

As others before me have noted, there is definitely a Beatles vibe that threads its way throughout the composition and the arrangement. It suits the song incredibly well.

You and Ron have done a great job.

Regards to you both,
Noel

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.
