Love your Ways

Hi all,

Best wishes to you all!
Here is my first contribution for 2019.

It features the beautiful samples of Irina Brochin, which were part of the Papelmedia GM Soundfont.
Irina is a Russian soprano, currently residing in Germany.
She kindly offered permission to use her samples in this song.

This is an amazing first post to 2019, your voice sounds really nice and the song is nicely written and arranged, I did think you could have had harmonies, backing vocals, at certain parts of your vocals to fill/ heighten them , but I really enjoyed this .

Thanks

Rob,

What a lovely melody! I enjoyed the whole song ( including the voice samples); the best part for me is listening to the purity of your vocal, though. Sure, you could add harmonies, but its a pleasure to listen to someone who can really carry a song like this.

Robert

Very nice song!

Your vocal performance is really good and it was in general a pleasant experience to listen to this song.

I hope I am not offending you, but at certain passages, the song reminded me of some of Rodger Hodgson's songs (which in my world is a compliment).

Your voice is really good on this - it's perfectly set up to carry your tones.
The song is lovely and the melody structure is excellent.
I must admit that the vocal samples, while lovely, don't add to the song or performance for me.

Wow, this is gorgeous Rob smile You did an outstanding job. It's a solid write, and truly a beautiful tune. Love the vocals on this - they compliment the backing tracks flawlessly, and what you did with those vocal samples add a unique flavour to it.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing!

Beatmaster, Thanks for your positive comment. Yes you may have a point about adding some additional backing vocals here and there through the song. I mostly use backing vocals in my songs (Anne-Marie usually does them) but in this case it didn't cross my mind.

VERY nice Rob. I must admit I've used Irmas soundfonts on a few occassions over the years. Never once thought about asking permission as I assumed coming from papelmedia they'd be free to use ? Anyhow, great song, and very nicely arranged

Wow! That is a lovely write and vocal performance.

We always enjoy and admire the harmonies that you use but in this case the absence of them really showcases your wonderful vocal.

The lyric and vocal are so heartfelt. Powerfully emotive...

Tremendous!

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
