Robert alluded to it...the lyric is ethereal yet the vocal is so organic and, yes, it does make for a great and effective contrast.

If CD's were still popular we'd say you are working on a boxed set. And ALL of them are so good.

You ain't one for filler!

Great band here as always and we agree with floyd on the held chords. Perfect glue.

And the vocal delivers and delivers.

Wonderful listen(s)

J&B

I like the production - a bunch. LOVE the way you used the held electric chords...

Terrific listen.

I agree completely with Floyd. I really like the way you put so much feeling in each and every song.

This is a winner.

Bob,

You consistently put out some very engaging songs—all of which just hang together and accentuate each other. There’s a killer album in the offing . . . if that’s the direction you are going. This tune, as do your others, creates such a compelling atmosphere—lot of emotion here, and your vocal sells it. Great stuff!

All the best,

Deej

Really well done! It flows tremendously well, and I liked how the lyrics really tell a story here. That, paired with your voice on this makes it a very grabbing listen for me. Perfectly catchy on the hook too - the chorus was a standout to me.

Nice work and thanks for sharing smile

Really liked the vocal delivery and the acoustic guitar. Lyrics had me wondering which, I think, is a good thing in songwriting.

Very nice write! Strong and airy. Nicely mixed and listens easy. Different from last several tunes, but in a very good way.

Thank you for sharing!

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!
