I was quite excited to be interviewed for my very first podcast the other night. It is a podcast called "Free Range Texan" and Michael interviews singer-songwriter type people for each episode and then features one of their songs. We talked A LOT about Band-in-a-Box and what a great product it is. The song that will be featured is "I AM WOMAN". Michael was quite amazed that the song took about three hours from start to finish. From original concept to writing to recording and then releasing.

Lyrics:
I am water
I am fire
I am strength
I am desire

I am not my voice
Nor the colour of my skin
I am not my clothes
I am not defined by things

I am human
I am woman
I am enough

I am courage
I am night
I am the moon
I am the light

I am not my body
Nor am I my name
I am not my face
I am not defined by pain

I am human
I am woman
I am enough

I dont know where life's road will lead
I'm only ever guessing
I want to take only what I need
Understand the blessing

I am human
I am woman
I am enough

Will let you all know when the podcast is available.

A really cool backing track - plenty of space and texture without the frequent mid mud build up that comes with stacked RTs.
Very, very good lyric - particularly given the time frame you outlined.
As always - spot on pitch and harmonies.

What you are Joanne is becoming more classy with every track you record. I don’t often comment but this is really very very good.

Hi Joanne ...

Loved my listen! It's airy, free and nicely paced. There is excellent melding of the relatively sparse lyric with the musical bed - each has the space to define itself individually and as well-oiled parts of the whole.
Congrats on the song and the podcast!!!

Wishing you well,

Alan

Love the backing tracks for this. Your vocal is very pleasing. I especially like the contrasting sections in the lyrics where they state "I am not..." Nicely done.

Very nice work here. The lyric is "anthemic", yet the backing is subdued and minor keyed and the combination seems to say (to me) "Do I really need to explain these things to you again?" That's my listen, anyway.

Very nice song, Joanne. Loved listening to it.
In a way the lyrics are simple but give a lot of space to think about the words.
And the nicest of all is in the song your voice faded away, but stays in your (my) head.

Thanks very much,
Hans

I know that you've been busy with your channel. Does Youtube allow uploading revisions yet? That was a problem for me, because I always need to change something:)

A solid song and a strong production.
