Wow... this is really well done. Right from the start it grabbed me.

Nice mix, and the vox are also nicely done. Sweet harmonies.... yeah.

Dusty sings well.

The next song started to play. It's also a good listen. More than ever.

I'm really enjoying this, esp. with the harmony/backup singing.

Hey guys, thanks for the listens! Dusty really does rock the vocals, and arranged all the harmonies and background vocals as well. So talented...

Very entertaining! and really well put together. You've both done a great job. Biglad said "Quality" and I totally agree. That single word seems to say so much.

Regards,
Noel

Biglad, Noel, THANK YOU for the comments...so encouraging!

"Please more" is very flattering. Will certainly do just that. smile

Hi Again,

really cool song! Exceptional vocals, particularly the harmony. Great mix of the backing tracks. We really enjoyed this ... a bunch!

A technically clean, well-produced and well-performed song. Thanks for the super listen!

This is a fantastic pop rock tune, great catchy melody and moody lyrics, perfect vocals and harmony, super arrangement and mixing. I would say a really classic pop song somewhere between CCR and Crowded House. I just can't stop listening to this, really makes me feel good.

Thanks Bob! When I see a song wandering past the 4:00 mark I always worry if it will sustain interest. So nice to hear that this one does. smile

Hey Ron, I also got some real Creedence vibes from this! I love the vocal harmonies you do. Really effective at highlighting different lines.

Thanks for the listens! Dusty really destroys the vocals, and his harmonies puts it into another gear. Makes the song really shine. smile
