Easygoing sad country song.

Well done, nice listen!

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

Is the main vocal leaning a bit to the right?
Country blues that works a treat.
On a side note I'd, personally, EQ away the click of the kick as the drums sound decidedly modern with more batter head than thwack.

Elliot,

A good early 90's style Country song. A nice write (lyrics would be nice).

I always disagree with ray about that drum sound - I think it sounds really good (Country radio kicks have had that sound since about 1995).

The backing is good.

The vocal has a good Country sound to it, but it gets too hot a number of times. The volume could be lowered a bit to let it sit in the mix just a bit more.

Good job overall.

Hello Elliot ...

Nothing better than good old country song! And this a great song and recording. Perhaps the vocal is just a bit too much forward in the mix. But, it certainly didn't detract from my enjoyment of your song. Love rasp in your voice, particularly in the chorus. This is really nice! loved my listen. Wishing you and yours the best. be safe ...

I am looking for a good country singer to lend their vocal talents to my songs. Anyone interested in collaboration?

Cool story, Elliott, and the right backing for it. Your voice seems perfect to me, except, as floyd said, it could sit softer in the mix. You bring out the emotion of your own words like no one else can. Oh, also, yes, please post the lyrics if you can. Take care!


Enjoy whatever happens!

You don't need a singer. Your vocal is perfect for this song. I think you can sing country like it should be sung.

This is what today's country should sound like. Great song, vocal, lyrics and mix.

Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

I agree with the comments praising the production, including your
excellent vocal. I would add the meaning of the story is very strong.
The story reflects the feelings of so many Americans who have seen
their cities and towns fall to outside agents, internationalists who
couldn't care less about the American people, and inside agents long
practiced in the techniques of selling out people and nations they have managed to gain residency and position.
Good job.

This is an excellent song. I really like the changeup around the 1:30 mark where you kicked it up a notch. You've done an impressive job of combining all those instruments and rhythms and keeping the interest up. Regarding the vocals, I agree with others - they fit perfectly. They need to be slightly gritty, but most importantly they need to be real, to match those sad, tough lyrics, and they are. I did think I heard a tad more volume on the vocals in the right channel as rayc mentioned, but I would need others to confirm. Lastly, just one tidbit - I don't know why, but at the beginning of the song, I was just lukewarm about it, but after about 30 seconds, I started getting it, then after about a minute, I was totally digging it.

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."
