Hi All,

Not much time for music these days, but wanted to share something new. I will also get around to listening / commenting on all the new songs posted here.

This is called Graffiti Love.

I know love like an endless sky
It's all right when it's up high
I know you can fly so blind
But I crash and burn over time

Now baby you fill your jar with paint
You know what it is and what it ain't
You got a steady hand that's lined and tough
A connoisseur in the art of love

I know love is a war of words
It's all graffiti and absurd
I know you can trace the names
But I get stuck and place the blame

Now baby you fill your jar with paint
You know what it is and what it ain't
You got a steady hand that's lined and tough
A connoisseur in the art of love

I know love is skin and bones
It's all a graveyard all alone
I know you separate the themes
But I see the raven so it seems

Now baby you fill your jar with paint
You know what it is and what it ain't
You got a steady hand that's lined and tough
A connoisseur in the art of love

Baby you
A steady hand
In the art of love

"You got a steady hand that's lined and tough/A connoisseur in the art of love" - what a great lyrical hook!

As soon as I saw you had a new track posted on my notifications, I had to make sure I gave it a listen tonight.

Vocal delivery and interpretation resonates your lyrics.

Great to have you back in the writing groove. Terrific lyrics, liked the instrumentation, could've used more variety in the song structure, I think. But inimitably you, I dug it.

A Dylan-esque, hymn-like layout. Builds subtle and effective. Sweet lines and imagery carried by your raspy, weary voice. The band sounds great. Much enjoyed.

Enjoy whatever happens!

I've been waiting for a new song from you Bob and it surely doesn't disappoint. I like especially the lyrical structure with two faces of the same scene: "I know you can fly so blind but I crash and burn over time". The band and mix work perfectly, the chorus is catchy and the lyrics flow smoothly. Percussion effects adds a nice texture.

"you got a steady hand that's lined and tough

Already quoted but worth another! Great line...of many.

Tangmo said: "A Dylan-esque, hymn-like layout. Builds subtle and effective..."

Couldn't agree more...if you've got something to say that can work well -- like it does here.

And, as always an emotive vocal that really carries the lyric nicely.

And, as always, a great band and mix.

Oh, and we've missed you.

All round terrific stuff.
There's is the tendency for your voice to push the treatment it receives into clipping/overdrive.
I think it'd be an easy thing to fix but it does seem to be a colour you like on your voice.


Cheers

I really like the way you write with a poetic sensibility, but it fits the song, instead of feeling shoehorned in.

And, of course, the excellent arrangement, mix and singing. laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
