Thanks Robert for all of the kind words! Yes I went for a less processed sound in order to bring the vocal more up front and personal which I felt this type of tune needed. I'm a long way from being finished with it though. Some lines in the lyric need improvement as well as some other things I've noticed after multiple listens! T

I like the message and the sound of this. "And turn your eyes toward the Son/Forget where you have been and start to live again." Good! Every time I try to write Christian lyrics, they always come off sophomoric. So I'm stuck writing my secular tripe. But this song inspires me to keep trying.

The band may be different than usual, but your strong catchy pop melodies are still here for us to enjoy. The arrangement lets your voice be more intimate and harmonies sound better than ever. Instrument selection is perfect and sound is full of warmth, I like especially the fiddle.

Thanks Ray! I am definitely still working on the mix. The lead vocal is on 4 tracks. One is a slightly delayed double that comes in and out. Two others are mixed about 50 percent right and left with a heavier reverb on them and I think that is what is causing the sibilant issues. I also plan on spreading the 2 acoustic guitar track a little wider to clear out more room for the vocal. I have lots of work to do on this including improving the lyrics in places and fixing timing issues and flat notes here and there. T

Great song! Well done dynamics change building up steam as it went forward. Really enjoyed the production, and the lyric message. I’d like that very first note on the guitar… I’m not sure how you got that but I’m gonna try to find it in the RT’s that you used! Thanks for sharing your work.

I loved this one Torrey. Great lyrics, but it's your vocals that held my attention right the way through. The production is outstanding and it was satisfying the way you built up the accompaniment.

Dang, Torrey:

This is just so, so good. Everything, every aspect. That “ooh” is so magnetic. Great build musically on this. If someone listening to this isn’t bobbing their head and tapping their foot by the end of this song . . . well, they just ain’t human.

Stunning! This deserves a ton of listens.

My very humble regards,

Deej
