Hi all,
Here's another collaboration with Ray and Misha.

https://soundcloud.com/christian-devienne/sheets-of-rain

Singing : Misha
Lyrics : Ray Cochrane
Music : Christian Devienne

Pulling sheets of rain
So snuggly up around my chin
A blanket of snow
All there is to keep the warmth in

There is nothing true
but all that in which you believe
There is nothing real
but what you willingly conceive

Pulling sheets of rain
So snuggly up around my chin
A blanket of snow
All there is to keep the warmth in

So again we sail
In a mist of our devising
No way through is known
Not without your compromising

Pulling sheets of rain
So snuggly up around my chin
A blanket of snow
All there is to keep the warmth in

There is nothing true
but all that in which you believe
There is nothing real
but what you willingly conceive

RD FunkHalfNotesSync
RT 2421 Acoustic Bass
RT 2951 Acoustic Guitar
RT 2923 Banjo
RT 3262 Cello
RT 3154 Fiddle
RT 618 Fiddle
RT 593 Fiddle

Well done Christian and Misha - a cracking good song very well arranged and performed.
The backing vocals are really well placed and I love the little ad libs that add a wonderful European flavour to the mix - something many Brits will soon miss.

It's a waaay over used term but, hey, this song is catchy! smile

It got that stick with you after the last note and makes you want to play it again feel...so we did.

Cool lyric, vocal and arrangement.

The choice of the RD track and the RT's is outstanding. Dunno if it was a style or you "rolled your own" but either way it is very effective...and well mixed.

Collabs are fun and this is a great example of the power of BiaB and forum members working together.

Nice!

Misha, Ray, & Chris...
Great collaboration on a philosophical tune...
I agree that the melody, rhythm, & lyrics make for a pretty catchy song...
The rhythm seems to give the work a pleasant Romanian gypsy flavor...
I really enjoyed listening your musical endeavor.

Thank you to all for mentioning my small part!
I must admit, Christian had a very nice melody for this and most likely I simplified things a bit, but I am glad he agreed to try it. It was a fun, easy going project smile

Christian, Ray thank you for the invite!

Misha.

Misha / Ray / Chris,

A good collaboration.

Misha's vocal always have a way of "making you listen".

The BAND is a a very nice pairing of instruments - a good bed for presenting the lyric.

"There is nothing true
but all that in which you believe
There is nothing real
but what you willingly conceive"

Nice.

Thanks Jim, Peter, Floyd jane and Kenny.
I'm lucky to work with Ray and Misha.
Ray is a talented writer with creative ideas and Misha gives always much emotion with his voice. Christian

Really nicely done - the groove on this is superb, and your vocals the progressions are top notch. A really proper mix too - it sounds really professional.

Thanks for sharing smile

Thanks Folks,
I'd had the 1st two lines in my head for a couple of years and added the 2nd pair about 12 months ago & that's allo I had. I don't write music other bombast so finding a home for that stanza was always going to be a problem. Christian's music gave me a hi8nt of Traveler/Gypsy so I threw those fantasy/myth lines in with a couple of quick-fix faux axioms to create the fairy tale and motherhood statement of folk stories after which Misha made it real.
I must acknowledge that it's much easier to write when someone provides a lovely melody as the frame to hang words on.

Philosophical and folky meet. That old-world-weariness is fitting. Much enjoyed.

Nice collab, unique vocal, great lyrics

but all that in which you believe
There is nothing real
but what you willingly conceive

Wow, I'll be thinking about this the rest of the day...

Chris, Misha and Ray,

Very nice gypsy jazz type feel to this one—digging the vocal on this. And the backup vocals add so much atmosphere to this in those spots it chimes in. What a great feel this tune has. Very well done, gents! This is deserving of a lot of listens.

All my best to each of you,

Deej
