Many of you remember this recent song.

Fade to Grey

I just got more news that my local big city radio station is going to be featuring this song on their local songwriter's and artists program this Sunday night. March 1 9pm to 9:30pm and the station is 94.7 in Raleigh NC.... you can stream it live on the interweb.

Thought you might like to know..... this is the second song of mine that is being featured and yup.... my band is the Kill Branch Studio Band (Band in a Box).

Note: this is a collab between myself and David Snyder.

Is it me or is there a little left lean in the stereo image?
The melody is very Neil Young which is nice.


Cheers

Hi Herb ...

I'd never heard this one before ... but really glad I found it this time. It's a terrific song! It shines in the way all your posts do. Really, really nice. And that's a pretty cool band you have!

Congrats on the airplay! I wish more stations would play local artist here and there. Good luck with it. Best to you ...

Alan

PS: and a tip of the hat to David for his work on it.

Hello, 'guitarhacker' & Mr. Snyder...

Man, your lyrics -- they're sharp, cinematic, even as they describe scenes that you only see in your dreams, where real, tangible objects becomes symbols for emotions:

"...tears passed under that old bridge..." (That is surrealistically beautiful, gentlemen.)

"The clock, turns so slowly, but the years flew by so fast" (Splendid contrast in the way we experience the passage of time, inwardly -- you can imagine a ruthless wind ripping pages out of a calendar book as a clock's hands wind down slower, slower, slower, until they pass into the realm of 'no-time', or 'anti-time'...)

"But your hand still comes up empty as you close and lock that door" (Gentlemen, this is downright spooky! The sense of loss, of emptiness, is strong enough to touch. The man's future is as dark as a keyhole.)

Always enjoy your singing, 'guitarhacker'! And I seem to be always surprised by your vocal range, and the expressiveness that accompanies it. Though they're not indicated, the Real Style and the Real Tracks drive the lyrics with their catchy, country energy straight down the fast lane.

'guitarhacker', Mr. Snyder, if your songs could be cars, they'd be limited-edition collector's items cool !

Truly-ooly,

LOREN

P.S. Congratulations on having your song broadcast cool !!!

Rayc, Al-David, Bluage, Tunemonger, & Marty. Thanks for the kind words.

Loren, nice in depth look at the lyrics. It's rewarding to have someone like yourself come back and really dig into the words and tell how they touched your soul. To give you the real tracks I'd have to look back.... You can probably find it through a search for the original post from last year.

Couldn't stream this the other day, so I'm glad that it worked today. What a great song. Congrats on the airplay. Well deserved to you, David, and the Band. Touched my heart.

Love the title "Fade to Gray", interesting contemplation of what was and what never can be. Nice upbeat melody.

Herb,

Really good song—congrats on the airplay. It’s nice to now radio stations in the U.S. still feature local artist play. I think that’s a rarity, I think. Anyway, cool tune. Good luck with it!

My best to you,

Deej

Brilliant. So well crafted, I'm not surprised in the slightest the radio people wanted to play it. SUPERB lyrics, too. Great job!

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!

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."
