Nearby the river

How can I feel that secure
and lost with you at once.
How can I keep what´s in my heart
without loosing you at once.

Uuuuh…

Nearby the river I ask myself,
if all I needed was just a little more time
cause deep inside some things have changed.
Nearby the river I ask myself,
if all I need is just a little more time

How can I stand by myself
and be loved at once.
How can I be alive
and live my life with you at once.

Uuuuh…

Nearby the river I ask myself,
if all I needed was just a little more time
cause deep inside some things have changed.

Well done, Rebecca and Jochen. Love the harmony, and your choice of instruments. Mandolin, banjo and resonator make an interesting mix, and you mixed them in a pleasing way. I'm a bass player so most people don't take me seriously, but seriously I hear more freedom for the bass than just the straight 8s, ala Tom Petty. Keep 'em coming, guys.

Rebecca & Jochen,
I enjoyed your catchy modern country song arranged with trad. instruments- lots going on but the whole works and held my attention. Your vocal ( and harmony) is excellent!
The mix sounds right and I like the acappella ending.
Very good!

Robert

Rebecca,

Great sound right out of the gate—wonderful mix really hitting the ear in the right place. And then those lovely harmonic vocals. Dig that banjo hitting the left ear starting in the pre-chorus. Killer tune—bright sound, deep lyrics make a nice marriage here. Impressive work. Really well done tune!

All my best,

Deej

Kept my interest and had me thinking about it long after listening. The spacing in your lyric lines was intriguing. I liked the gradual transition to a cappella. Very well done.

Great vibe throughout, lyrically quite unique, and the phrasing is most interesting.

Your band did a good job supporting you here.

Top vocals, really tight.

Rebecca and Jochen I'm totally loving this song! Upbeat, refreshing, great instrumentation and great vocals. What a killer tone you have when you sing, and the two of you blend!

I especially the the melodic choices with the the chord change going into "needed."

Just a great song. So happy I got to hear it! Thanks!

Hi Rebecca and Jochen,

I find this a very good song! In that matter I want to underline what TuneMonger said about your style of singing in this song. That was exactly what caught me too. I read the lyrics while you were singing them in this way. this is called modern singing, isn't it?
And the band was strong, with a major role for that mandoline. So well done!

Btw: very nice city, Würtzburg,
Hans

Hi Rebecca & Jochen ...

What a great sound! This sounds very professional ... super mix, great lyric and excellent backing tracks. It's not necessary to say how good the vocal is ... but I will anyway. It's wonderful!

Terrific. Thanks for about three minutes of great entertainment. Please be safe ...

Alan

Hi Rebecca and Jochen. Guten Tag from Chicago! I've been a fan of yours on SoundCloud for quite a while, and I'm thrilled that you're posting some new music. I really like this one. I'm going to have it on repeat for a while wink.

Cheers!
Ed

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
