Yep - what Mario said! I couldn't have said better. Thanks for a really nice listen. To my ears, your vocalist sounds a bit like Natalie Maines. Regardless, she and your song combine for a really nice listen. Best to you ...

Sounds GREAT to me. Not my genre but she delivers it well and the instrumentation is great. Again I listen to the song as a whole. I think you've nailed it. Also shows the importance of having a vocalist that can "REALLY" sing delivery. I like it a lot !!

Great job Chicago Bob! Obviously excellent production and vocals but the lyrics are equaly fantastic. Are you a member of NSAI? If not, you should consider attending the next NSAI Chicago Chapter meeting; they were actually awarded the NSAI 2020 chapter of the year because of how well they support their songwriting community. Regardless, I really enjoyed your song.

Bob, I like this a lot. I have listened several times. That girl can sing and the tone of her voice is perfect for the song. Well written and a real pleasure to listen to,Tom

Thanks Tom, Do you think this song has commercial value? I have a chance to pitch a song and wondering if this is the right one?

Hi ChicagoBob,

Very nice song full of emotion. The voice is gripping and the sweet and sober arrangement well done. I really appreciated.

Dynamic arrangement, and a sweet voice to carry fine lyrics to that engaging melody. A wonderful production, ChicagoBob.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thanks @MusicStudent.. for me, I find that the title is so important for me in my creation process-- even for an instrumental it helps me "hear the song" in my head.

The song is really nice and the singer is terrific. I'm not sure why I and others cannot make out the words she is singing. You could hire a pro mixer, they are not cheap ($100 roughly, so I'm told) but that could solve your problem.

As far as pitching it, have you listened to current music? Even ballads nowadays have hip hop elements to them. It's a mighty tough road. You've done a great job with this and obviously you've earned the admiration of the BIAB Showcase users. That would make me content.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
