I connected with a songwriter from Australia over the internet and he offered me a chance to record this song! I thought it was a perfect fit for my vocal style and think it turned out really well. He is thrilled that his song is getting heard! Hope you enjoy! Thanks.

Michael,

Saw this as I was looking through some of the songs I missed when I was away for a couple of months. Hard to believe no one has commented on this to date - assuming you used BIAB tracks. It sounds like BIAB trax to me. If there are no BIAB trax, you might reconsider posting such tunes in the future. And, if you have the info available, could you please post which trax you used? But, as I said, it sounds very much like BIAB backing tracks to me.

Very nice song and your vocal sits very nicely in the tracks. You have a very commercial voice that enjoyable to listen to. And your friend sent you a super song to work with. Nicely done.

Best to you,

Alan

I completely agree.

This is pro all the way. Your vocal, harmonies and chord structure are just fantastic. What did you use to master this? It sounds so good!

Wow -I'd agree, this fits your voice and style beautifully! I'm getting some strong 80's vibes on this one, but can't put my finger on who it reminds me of. At any rate - your vocals are endearing and emotional, and it's wonderfully catchy too, with a great groove.

You should be proud of this one! Thanks so much for sharing smile

Nice job.

Hey Everybody! Thank you so much for the nice words about the song! I'm not sure HOW the music was created. I've reached out to the songwriter (who lives in Australia; i'm in the US) to ask him so I can share with you!

Again thanks so much for the kindness!

Very nice Micheal!! This puts me in mind of the laid back style of Micheal Martin Murphey! And believe me that's a big compliment. This has such a great sound to it! Great work! Thanks, Torrey

Happy International Country Music Day!!!

You might not think of Band-in-a-Box® as a country music making machine, but you'd be surprised... there are OVER 850 Country RealTracks available!

Feeling inspired to create your own Country song in Band-in-a-Box®? Pop into the RealTracks Picker and create your own custom country band by filtering for "Country" or choose an existing Country style within the StylePicker Window by choosing a "Country" Filter String (from the drop down menu).

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 French for Mac is Here!

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 apporte plus de 50 nouvelles fonctionnalités ! Des améliorations ont été apportées aux RealTracks (RealTracks vocales au son plus doux, Epaississement des RealTracks, fonctions RealTracks "Trouver un Subs" et Multiriffs). La majorité des RealDrums dispose maintenant de RealCharts (avec une notation Drums précise). Le nouveau navigateur d'artistes RealTracks permet la recherche d'informations/bios/liens/listes sur artistes RealTracks. Le nouveau navigateur de fonctions permet à l'utilisateur nouveau ou "tête en l'air" de trouver et d'utiliser facilement la plupart des fonctionnalités/raccourcis/documents à partir d'une seule fenêtre.

ACHAT / MISE À JOUR, & TÉLÉCHARGEMENT MAINTENANT!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
