Howdy Dan....

Admittedly, this is not a genre I listen to or write in but I can still recognize a good song.

This is a good story telling song with well expressed, fleshed out lyrics.
The song is well structured and easily creates the desire to keep listening.
Vox is emotive and the harmonies sound great.
I wish I could hold a note (confidently) like you are able to.
I'd sound like a dull chain saw if I were to try.

Well done....keep up the good work.

(EDIT: I forgot to say the video was very good too)

Am I hearing a Floyd Jane influence in the vox?

When a song can bridge genres so seamlessly, it is very good. Really enjoyed listening. Kudos.

When I first saw the title, I wondered if it was a parody of "Moon River".

Obviously not! laugh

Easygoing and wistful. Laid back arrangement, nice vocals and harmonies.

Floods my mind

I see what you did there! wink

A very pleasant listen!

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

Dan,
Your reminiscing works for me; a nice lilt to the melody, gentle backing that suits the feel and an excellent vocal.
Very well done for a first Biab production!

Robert

David...thanks for the comments...it actually started out "Blue River" then I thought "I live 10 miles from Spoon River" why write fiction when you can write your own account of a real river... so there you go...thanks for listening and commenting...Dan

Not very often I comment on songs but this song is something else. I reckon this would be the nicest song I’ve heard in a very long time. Just brilliant all the way. Spot on singing and harmonies with really nice backing. Very pleasant!!

Thanks for the listen.

Tony
