Waiting for the sun

Deep down below,
I believe we could grow.
If you could only let me show.
If you could only let me show.

We push through,
do what we can do
to overcome...

...what has to be done,
sometimes you better run,
waiting for the sun.
Oh, to overcome,
what has to be done,
sometimes you better run...

High above the sky,
I believe we could rise,
If you could only let me show.
If you could only let me show.

Key=Eb , Tempo 130, Length (m:s)=4:09

oooh! This is really nice. Great vocal. nice and bright and up front.

Nice placement of the harmony just to the left side.
Makes for great clarity and definition.


I really like that way this part sounds.

"sometimes you better run,
waiting for the sun."

Nice work. I like the folk groove. Harmony is superbly done.

What's not to like?

Hey, this is a nice production. Sounds really good on the monitors. Good RT choice and the drums sound good...nice snare pop.

Cool contemplative lyric delivered with some up front (in a good way) and soulful vocals.

We like!!!

You're making music at a very high level, and it's a pleasure to listen to. I wish I could sing and make music this good. The lyrics are okay, but still the Achilles heel for me. Maybe it's not a big deal, I tend to weight lyrics higher than most people do.

Classic folk mood, but with full rich modern sound and great vocals. Very enjoyable backing vocals also. I like how the fiddle and the vocals resonate together.

That's a very nice song, Rebecca!
The vocals are very pleasant as is the melody of the song.
And I do like that violin in it. It is subtle, but present!

This sounds professional on all levels - excellent work.

The singing and arrangement are top-notch.

But - and I say this with some hesitation - for me there's something about the mix that makes the vocals a strident and hard to listen to. I'm glad others disagree with me. smile

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

Hey Janice and Bud,

Yes, you are right, we took your advice in putting the vocals more up front you suggested for the song " let go ".
