A new track from me. Done with_HOMESIK.STY (Homesick Soft Pop Serenade), plus the 1835:Guitar, Electric, Soloist PopModernGrooveGritty Ev16 075 solo track. Voice recorded and mixed with the BIAB track in Audacity. See what you think? Thanks in advance for all feedback!!! :-)

Heroes (on Bandcamp)

LYRICS

And the heroes stand up.
And they never give up
Their faith in a better life

And the heroes defy
Expectations, and try
For a world of peace, not strife.

And we owe it to them
To avoid, once again,
The path that leads to pain

When they all, young and old,
Want a wonderful world
Where there's sunshine, where there's rain.

CHORUS

They stand up today
As they do, always,
Every time and place,
Smiles on their face.

They stand up, like this,
They believe in peace;
They believe, do you?
That to love is true.

[BRIDGE: GUITAR SOLO]

SPOKEN:

And we owe it to them
To avoid, once again,
The path that leads to pain

When they all, young and old,
Want a wonderful world
Where there's sunshine, where there's rain.

Hi James ...

I've always liked this style - have used it a couple of times. Great message and your semi-staccato vocal; delivery is always a fascinating listen for me. Very nice! The guitar lead was spot on. Also, I particularly like where you unexpectedly inserted the diminished chords. Well done!

Alan

Another nice one, James...
I love hearing your accent...
It makes your song seem different yet so much more pleasant sounding...
I enjoyed listening to your song.

I hadn't heard this style before, but I like it. It works well with the lyrics and your vocal delivery. I like your lyrics on this, especially the last three lines.

Nice work on this, James smile It flows really well and I love the uplifting nature of the tune. Some really memorable moments, and that solo fit in perfectly. Makes for a great easy listening experience.

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

James,
Interesting arrangement and progression!
I like semi-spoken vocals, but I think it might benefit a little reverb.
Seems like your backing is airy, but vocals a bit dry. Just my 3 cents smile

Thank you for posting!

Misha.

Thanks Kenny and Misha. I'm useless with the production stuff like reverb, etc. etc. etc. ... so it's good to have some pointers!

I really like what you did with this song. I actually had it on in the background while I was working on other things. Very easy to listen to, which I like. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you so much. My voice is a real worry for me, as I don't feel I have enough vocal skill to actually sing a song - so it's good to know that I haven't ruined the song completely by singing it myself :-) Many thanks!!!

Hi James,

I love this style that you've used. It's a terrific backing and suits your song and vocals like a hand in a glove. You've done a great job. It's two thumbs up from me!

All the best,
Noel

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
