Greetings Forum Friends

It's been a busy summer and I finally got back into the studio to record our latest song, "We are America." For those of you who love patriot songs, this should be the song for you. If you're not into patriotic songs, I challenge you to listen. The song isn't about how great the USA is but rather how great America is when we stand united as one nation despite our differences. The feeling is real and can be applied to many great nations around the world.

Here's the song link:

Enjoy

Thanks

DC SpaceDog

Suitably anthemic DC! Well sung and builds to a real stand-up climax.

John, Scott, Thanks for listening and commenting I was a bit anxious how people outside the USA would like it.

Bob, Thanks I've been working on my mixing.

Dave, Glad you like it. I actually met Lee Greenwood once after he sung "Proud to be an American" while I was at US Central Command early in the war. Quite inspirational.

Greg, Thanks. It's all very true for me I am a patriot but very saddened by our current state of affairs.

Joe, Thanks for listening, glad you liked it.

Nice sentiment. And it certainly makes us think of the sad passing of John McCain.

Deryk, J&B, Ember,

Thx for listening and your kind comments.

I had a glitch with my RealBand and had to reload the PGM software suite. Lost all my presets and plugins so any rework on this one will have to start from scratch.

From your lips to the people's ears...all of us. I'm expat, but I'll still fight anybody who says I don't love my country just because I don't follow their party. This is well put-together and well-sung.

Everything that I wanted to say already has been said so all I can add is that this a fantastic patriotic song.

Excellent! Love the song. Love the message! Very well done, and love the buildup. Our nation needs more songs like this!

Thanks for writing this, and thanks for sharing.

Spacedog, I also agree with Mario! Take care, Torrey

Dave, Thanks. It's been a productive year for my songwriting. I hoping to get at least two more before the year is out.

Mario, Steve, I've heard it's difficult to write patriotic songs and Christmas songs but I've been enjoying them. I'm glad you liked this one. I've been working on my production skills so I'm glad you think the song sounds good


Rob and Anne-Marie, I'm so glad you liked it. The song has a strong message about freedom. From my visits to The Netherlands, I'm sure you can relate.


Torrey, Thanks for listening and commenting.
