Hi All,

Here's something folky and a bit vintage sounding - this is called Avalanche.

Summer days
The lost and found
Shades of green
An old ghost town
Voices fading
Old telephones
A changing world
Outside the zone

And I’m so buried
I’m so buried
I’m buried in your avalanche

Pictures hidden
Away in my mind
Somethings going down
The perfect crime
Whispers falling
On the pillow case
Sad blue eyes
Gone without a trace

And I’m so buried
I’m so buried
I’m buried in your avalanche

Bang your drum
East to west
Counter clockwise
This is not a test
Middle of nowhere
In the morning skies
The rain is falling
On the time that flies

And I’m so buried
I’m so buried
I’m buried in your avalanche

Hi rsdean,
I like your voice and how you sing this. Reminds of more simpler times, when people had the spiritual space to explore honest moments and reflect. Thanks for sharing.

Yep, folky and a bit vintage sounding.

Nice mix and vocals, evocative without being specific.

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

Bob, vintage & folky indeed - though the bass line is a bit busy - you've pulled together an ace arrangement and your intimate vocals work well within it.
I still get that pleasant Rod McKuen vibe.

Bob,
Ethereal lyrics and that smoky texture to your voice which grounds the song nicely. Love that 12-string!
I`m enjoying your creative output-you are bringing us so many good songs.

Really nice work here smile It has a very, very unique quality to it. It definitely has a modern approach to it, and the vocal delivery adds an almost haunted vibe to it. Very interesting lyrics too to help propel the whole thing.

You should be proud of this - thanks for sharing!

Love this mix. It is nice and soft and your vocals really shine.

Just a really well mixed, warm and intensely enjoyable song.

I really loved the opening imagery:

Beautiful. Thanks for sharing. smile

A little folky with a vintage sound, just the way I like it.

Your vocal was top notch as was your mix but the lyrics took it over the top for me.

Excellent work that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Bob,

What a great vibe this has! Love the vocal; meshes so well with the sound you’ve created. I’m not quite sure I follow the lyrics, BUT I’m not one to think it matters. To me, a song is a mesh of word, lyric, melody, harmony, etc. There’s enough mood and emotion here to make to keep me listening, and the chorus keeps it compelling. Very well done.

Kindest regards,

Deej
