J&B,

Killer piano out of the gate, and again in the instrumental—really crisp sound, so kudos on the production work here--topped with a chill and smoky vocal. And love the lyrics in that 4th verse. Great work, you two—a very enjoyable listen!

Best regards,

Deej

Thanks David. All through our bluegrass years we listened to a lot of blues so when we had the chance to create blues “bands” with BiaB Janice was primed!

Splendid!!!


I had to immediately turn the volume way up!



You have captured the grit and fullness of every instrument, just an awesome mix!

And Janice's voice is in top form and sultry!

J&B I just had a flashback to the good old days of jazz and blues lounges.

This is better than a lot of lounge acts that I have seen. You nailed this with the perfect backing tracks and Janice's crystal clear vocals.

Put out a CD of these and I will be the first to buy it.

Its no surprise that Janice takes a simple lyric and makes the listener feel the ache.
Your lyric videos are tasteful -nicely paced and spliced.
I couldn`t find the original of this on your back pages but hey, listening to some of the other 5 yr old tracks, you started out at a high level in production to these ears... and there are some fine songs as you transitioned from Bluegrass.

Robert


Thank you Robert very much and we appreciate you listening to some of the earlier material. It has been an interesting and fun journey. No negatives other than family and friends who feel like we abandoned them when we left bluegrass. Thanks for mentioning the video too!

As said before, it reminds you of a smoky bar.
Tasteful video as well.

Rob and Anne-Marie


Thank y'all! Glad you liked the mix and it always makes our day when you like one of our videos...you guys are over the top good with them.

WHAT a clear mix! Sounded flipping excellent!

Janice's voice is still a work of art, I love her control of the notes she makes each word have a life of it's own.

Nice, very nice

There's a clarity and sheen to this production that allows it to sit so very comfortably on listeners' ears. Coupling this with Janice's rich and warm vocals and the result is what Greek myths call ambrosia -- the food of the gods.

Every way I look at this, I see lessons galore for my own music creations!

All the best,
Noel

P.S. I find that revisiting previous works is a great idea. Until I started doing this, I had no idea how much my production chops had developed over the last few years.


That image more than made our day!

Thanks for commenting on the mix. Often, but not always, Waves’ LinMB will really open up a mix.

We always appreciate and are supported by your thoughtful comments!

The two of us much appreciate your comments Dave. And it’s great to have you here on the forum.
