Greg and glimpses of Gaugin, A very moving piece, and a splendid observation of a loved one. I spend considerable time trying to imagine what "she" is thinking", how she is processing her world and here it is laid out before me with such seemingly effortless grace. Fantastic.

A listening pleasure.

I can't add anything to what Alan and the others have said. A masterpiece.

That satin lilting voice is the cherry on top.

Our first impression was Brian Wilson of later years. A good thing!

The latin groove is very cool and the sax just nails it.

How neat that your daughter's creativity was the genesis for
a creative tune.

And the write and vocal are right up there with your high bar standards.

Well done!

J&B

Wishing you and yours everything good. Be safe ...

Thanks Alan!! Really appreciate your kind words! Just listened to Whispered Lies.....fantastic!! Take care. Greg

Greg,

I’m late to the party here and all the accolades I could offer have already been said. It’s simply an outstanding tune, delivered with your always soft and warm vocal, that especially adds color (no pun intended) to this pretty song. Outstanding!

Best regards,

Deej

Love the dreamy style. Being a watercolor artist myself, I could so relate to the colors not only of the paintings and the video but the music seemed to be in shades of pastels. Sometimes we artists put on music and interpret what that inspires in a painting. I think your song would be a good one to use for that exercise. It allows on to be introspective. So nice your daughter spoke to your sensitivities to do this beautiful composition.

Greg,
A sweet inspiration for this very fine song. The melody, backing and, of course, your warm relaxed vocals and harmonies are all excellent!
For my taste the video images ( which are well chosen for the theme)move a little quickly for the song.

Ditto

Greag, this is absolutely fantastic and your best to date. I would buy an album of songs like this.

You said that you are not artistic. WRONG! You are an artist with BiaB, lyrics, and you voice and a damn good one at that!

#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...

Have any of you come across something nostalgic like this these days? Let's see it!
(remember the first Audiophile version?!)
