A silly little bluesy love song. Had a lot of fun doing this one and I hope someone likes it! Thanks again PG Music for helping me get my ideas into a tangible form!

A damn fine - "silly little bluesy love song"....
Sophisticated, clever and interesting. Great vocal arrangement and some excellent guitar playing - loved the octave section.
Excellent.

Torrey,

There's a clarity to this production that is incredible. Right from the start, the sound was crisp and crystal clear. It made me sit up and pay attention.

Your singing is great and the song is really entertaining. I didn't hear anything 'silly' about this at all. What I head was talent shining brightly in every direction.

All the best,
Noel

This is REALLY nice. A terrific Pop write. Awesome melody (you are SO god at that!).

Your vocal on this is exceptional - one of your best, I think.

Nice production and mix. Super guitar.

Torrey,
A very Beatles sounding blues - maybe a bit looser than the arrangements on your recent songs, but still so catchy (to my ears you own that adjective when it comes to song melody!),
Nice to hear your lead guitar in a different style and the vocal is one of your best.

Wow - you nailed this, Torrey! I can't get over how well produced this sounds. I wouldn't flinch hearing this on the radio. The harmonies on the chorus are superb, and overall it's just a very well written song. Not to mention, that groove is great! It had my foot tapping within a few bars.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

Really nice, Torrey! Great guitar work, and your vocals shine as always. Very well written, and I particularly like the progression.

I don't have have time to write down everything I like about this. It is classic pop rock in the Style of Steely Dan. Magnificent chord progression and jazz soloing. Great vocals and harmonies--totally pro.

Loved it man. You are a true artist!!

Silly? Little? Hahahaha!

What so many would give to be able to write and perform and arrange and mix a song like that.

Posters have already thrown accolades at the progression, the write and the performances on vocals and guitar.

We'll only add that this is the kind of bluesy production that can also serve to draw new listeners into the blues...yes to us it's the blues but it has a light and very cool pop vibe to it. Heck maybe that's why people mentioned Steely Dan - but not having listened to them what would we know? Well, we know this is a great production and a wonderful addition to our SC favs playlist.

Yeah - what Floyd said. A big Plus 1. Your vocal is exceptional. You're a "silly little song's' best friend. Loved the casual feel to this! You're an exceptional talent.

I agree also! I also liked the vocals and especially the guitar leads. Great mix!

You are a multi-talented musician.

Two thumbs up.

Wow! I feel like if I complement any one aspect of the song it would be a disservice. That I might leave something out.

Let me put it this way: everything that you did to make this song happen - that's my favorite part.

Exceptional!

Torrey, these are my thoughts exactly. I would characterize this as Steely Dan meets the Beatles, falls in love and gives the world Torrey Bliss. Great singing, playing, arrangement, Everything!, Loved it, Tom

Oh yeah.... this is good.

I caught quite a few Beatles?Paul singing kind of influences in there....and something else.... can't quite place it yet.

exceptionally well done. One of the best ones you've done to this point.

Listen # 2 focused on the lyrics this time.... I'm impressed at the absolute professional quality of the writing. Loved how you worked the groove and the phrasing. And it was nice how you snuck one of my favorite Cream song titles into the bridge second line.... smooth.

Yep... this was a nice listen.

Hi Torrey

I like your stuff , I love the way you try and change the style to a varied standard.

Your songs are ambitious and nicely structured I felt there was a wee bit of the early George Harrison about this one the vocals/track arrangement are well done on this.

All the best.

"Torrey Bliss"...

The sound of each one of your song productions that I've heard on this User's Forum is consistently so full and soulful-feeling that I believe I could listen to them without using my ears. The sound would come through my body and into my soul, directly.

In my book, you're an enviable figure because you seem to possess the technical skill to make your music and lyrics sound even better than they obviously are.

"Love Bitter Blues", huh? Yeah, well, if they're "blues", they're tastin' sweet as honey! Your chord progressions in parts of the song are musical roller-coasters that take a body on a ride through really luscious sounds. Your RealTrack selections along with your own musicianship are right-on, and they carry your sinuous, coolly emotional vocal performance like a message-in-a-bottle floating down a stream. In other words, you got it down, and I mean real slick-like, dude!

Chillin' like "Torrey",

LOREN

Hello, Torrey

Great pop tune with a spicy blues feel!
Melody is very pop.
Very crystal sound!
Your vocals and harmonies are very nice and comfortable as usual.
Guitar play is also very good.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

All the compliments are true.

This song sticks in my ear after listening - something that doesn't happen often.

Nicely done!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?
