Solitude Lyrics:

Intro: mmh…
Verse: I would be grateful, if I didn´t need to feel abandoned again,
cause oh, this was never my feeling anyway,
it was yours and it´s old by the way, so let´s…
shake this off and put it where it belongs, shake this off and put it…

Chorus: Away with waves,
praised be grace,
solitude feels so good. (2x)

Verse: I would be grateful, if I could allow myself to feel what I feel,
cause oh, it was you, but now it´s me, who forbid,
so let´s ease and perceive and then …
shake this off and put it where it belongs, shake this off and put it…

Chorus: Away with waves,
praised be grace,
solitude feels so good. (2x)
Outro: mmh…

Rebecca,

Excellent. At every turn.

Excellent write. Very original.

Super vocal. Super production - very "current" sounding. Nice.

Very good mix.

Everything about this says "Pro."

Welcome to the forum! Hope to hear more...

Welcome!

Great job on the song ... I thought the vocals were so professionally done and the RealTracks were really well chosen. My test for a song is that I know when it's good if I forget to analyse and think about what I like and don't like when I listen to it ... and I certainly just settled down and just listened to yours. Well done - I definitely want to hear more.

Rebecca, this is sensational from every direction.

Fabulous mix, brilliant contrasts, top delivery, and perfectly colored with amazing vocals.

Going back for another listen.

Great!

Congrats on this Rebecca.
Production is spot on.
A little reminder of the Dixie Chicks also.
Well done and welcome. Rob4580

REALLY cool - I do wish the vocals were a little louder.
I can't, in headphones, get to grips with the drum track leaning to the right but that's mre an old fashioned stereo image obsession on my part.


Cheers

very pro sounding, reminded me of any number of neo-folk groups doing well right now, but especially The Civil Wars. Great vocal, mix, etc, in other words, great everything! I did have to turn up the volume knob on my Scarlett quite a bit, but overall mix was correct in my inexpert opinion.

Dear Ms. Rebecca King...

Da-aaang, lady shocked !!! This is the first song you produced with Band-in-a-Box ??? Sounds to me like you had a real short learning curve. Da-aaang !!! After I clicked on the link to the song on SoundCloud, upon hearing the beginning of it, I thought I had accidentally been taken to a music streaming website -- Spotify, Pandora, or whatever else is out there where professional musicians introduce their songs.

The Real Tracks you selected fit the feel of the lyrics so fabulously that they sound inevitable, pre-ordained to be assigned to your production of Solitude. You sing those lyrics as though you've lived more than one life. The vocal harmonies are tight, melodious, a chorus of your voice multiplied clearly and with great musicality. The lyrics themselves describe a compelling interior monologue that's as clear and sharp as high mountain air.

Da-aaang shocked !!! Oh, I said that already, right ??? Forgive me. I've listened to the song seven times as I end this comment.

Really impressed,

- bluage -

P.S. YAY !!! Another lady joins the forum !!!

Seems to me you've been at this song-writing thing for a while. If not, you should have been. Either way, you've put together in BIAB a wonderful production and band. The lyric is quite universal, though achingly personal--those kinds of thoughts that jumble and tumble up when we're trying to find "ourselves" in the din. Wonderful how it ends with just the MMM's and banjo so meditatively. Vocals and harmonies are clear and beautiful. Nice to "meet" you this way.

What a tune! Delightfully catchy, and I'm getting some strong 90's vibes from this one. Loved the vocals on this, and thought the instrumentation was lush and flowed nicely. Top notch work on the mix too - it sounds professional and concise.

Thanks for sharing smile

Very nice and super cool entry to the board.

And nice to have another lady aboard!

Your first BiaB song? Well certainly not your first rodeo with music production.

The lyric, melody and your vocal performance are all standout.

Definitely a Dixie Chick vibe...a good thing!

Our only suggested would be to bring the mix gain up some. It's a bit quiet by today's standards.

Thanks for sharing!

As Floyd said, "Excellent"!!! Great song, and you can really sing!! It seemed a bit unusual for all the music to be panned to one side. Technically, everything sounded very good! This is a real treat.......want more!!! Welcome to the forum!!! Take care. Greg
