Here's the first official song from the new studio. I finally got the time to write something new and actually have the time to record it.

I present a Twin Gremlin production recorded at Kill Branch studio......


On The Road

The band is totally BB.

Nashville 8 drums, Bass, 2 electric guitars, piano, steel, mandolin, 5 vocal tracks.

Hope you enjoy it....

BTW: good to be back again.

LOL, A new brick and mortar studio. Great song. It's good to have you back and like the new addition of the delay in your production tool box.

Enjoyed my listen.

Herb, Glad to see the studio is up and running. Now maybe you can sit back and enjoy the new place a bit more. Love the song. Sounds like Poco meets the Dirt Band. I have played this Country Rock style most of my life so it was such a comfortable listen I felt like I've played it before. Great vocals. The stops in the last verse were very effective. Overall super production and performance. Much enjoyed! Tom

A good job on that, Herb. A good flow. As Tom mentioned, the stops were effective. The mandolin worked well.

Nice groove and I agree with Floyd, I loved the mandolin.

Big sound and good rocking!

Charlie: It's good to have the studio up and running, but better still to get the time to actually set down and write something new. Thanks for commenting.

Tommy: Poco and Nitty Gritty were some of my favorite country rock bands. I was think Bob Seeger a bit too in some of his more country sounding tunes. Thanks for listening.

Scott: Glad you dropped in and had a listen and enjoyed it. Thanks

We like Tom's "poco meets the dirt band" description. Two bands we've listened to a lot.

A cool description for a cool production.

"That place we've been looking for might be just around the bend."

And if it ain't the fun is mostly in the journey.

Nice

Hi Herb,

Yeah, The Band lives again! One of my biggest loves is traveling, so this one hit home. And have to agree with the comments about the stops. Cool song! And this is, perhaps, your best vocal in quite some time. Congrats on the studio! I really enjoyed this ... A bunch!

Merry Christmas.

Alan

Herb

A strong country rock song - excellent arrangement, and like floyd I liked the held chords near the end.
Nice catchy tune.

Floyd.... thanks for dropping in and having a listen.

Gruverider....thanks for the listen. I always have enjoyed the big band sound.... not talking about Dorsey & Kruppa. They have their own special place in my heart.

Janice & Bud.... That was one thing I really enjoyed about being in a traveling band.... another day meant another town. And some of the places we got to stay were like being on vacation and playing music at night.... it just didn't get much better.

Very groovy and melodic, really catchy chorus. Powerful arrangement, I can't recognize any BIAB instrument, hard to believe it's all BIAB, so you have made really good work in the mixing.

Great work on this, Guitarhacker! It's an awesome write - just generally very catchy, and definitely an earworm. I wouldn't bat an eyelash if I heard this on the radio. Not to mention, the production here is seriously on point. You did a very, very good job.

Thanks so much for sharing smile
