Hi there,

I am a BIAB user from Germany and this is my first post here. It's a christmas song reflecting about feelings of loneliness during Corona lockdown. Hope you like the song and if so, pls also spend me a like or comment on youtube smile Thanks a lot

https://youtu.be/kSXXoncI3g4

All playback instruments and backing vocals come from BIAB. I added some bells, additional drums and pad sounds and, of course, the lead vocal. Looking forward to your comments smile

This is really good. Very pro sounding.

Excellent use of BIAB. A well-written song. Beautiful vocal.

And a good mix. Nice video, too. The sax at the end was a nice touch...

Welcome to the Showcase.

Yes, this is beautiful in spite of the sadness. It gives a wonderful sense of hope. Love it. So well done and such a good write. Really cool use of the BGVs BiaB offers.

oops, the reply button does not do what I expected. I guess I have to use the quote button to have my reply attached to the original comment?

Thanks a lot for listening and your praise, am very happy you like it. Good that you mentioned the sax...it is also from BIAB, of course, and originally I had a sax intro and solo in the middle which I later replaced with the bell melody to provide a little bit more of a Christmas vibe. But in the coda it fits perfectly.

What a beautiful vocal. I just love the tone of your voice. Lovely song and perfect timing. With the covid problems it is very relatable . Welcome to the forum.

Cool, that never entered my mind. Thanks for this connotation. Vocals are really great, agreed. I hired a vocalist for that.

Thanks for the praise. Really appreciate it. I will tell Pauline who sang it for me. I am only the composer and producer smile If you can please write your comment on youtube so Pauline can see it, too.
