LOVE'S NEW FRONTIER
LOVE'S NEW FRONTIER video

While I certainly haven't arrived there yet, the message in this song
is what I strive for daily! It's about taking the "high road".

When I first heard the Motown Funky Triplets Realdrums set a couple of
years ago I knew I had to do a song with those and here it is. BIAB has
the BEST sounding drums out there IMHO! I'm still working with eq's and
mixing but I kind of like what I hear. Thanks everyone for having a listen.

Love's New Frontier
Words and music by Torrey Bliss ©2021

Laid back no worries for today
No stress no hurry is how I play

When some go low we will go high
The road's not crowded there
To leave the darkness for the light
And find loves new frontier

Look for the best in those you know
Where they have failed just let it go

When some go low we will go high
The road's not crowded there
To leave the darkness for the light
And find loves new frontier

Wanting to fight and criticize and magnify
Faults of others
You know that it's bringing you down
Start on the quest bring out the best
Lift the oppressed let hope manifest
Then you'll soaring up high

Cool backtrack Torrey. Super vocal. Song has a 70's feel to it. Harmonies were excellent. The megaphone effect was pretty cool as well. Well done...

Torrey...great track...as usual the vocals are top-notch and harmonies are excellent...the harmonica is Stevie Wonderish which adds to the Motown vibe and the message and attitude of the the lyric is positive and redemptive which is a very good combo...great write and great recording...best regards...Dan

The opening "Harmonica" harmony was pure, (Torrey), Bliss.
Shades of Little Stevie Wonder amongst other things.
The doubled guitar lies too.
The treated vocal was excellent fun and a cool touch - part Leslie speaker & part megaphone.
You're in fine voice and your playing is on point.
The whistle blow was also a little nuance that was well worth inclusion.
EXCELLENT.


Cheers

We love hearing the positive feedback! We think the drums are pretty slick too. And you did a great job utilizing them! Thank you for taking the time to post on the forum here and share with us. We love getting to listen to how creative everyone is and it is definitely a highlight in my day to see how people are using the program. The combination of elements you used for this song really give it a unique flare.

Have a wonderful weekend!


Cheers,

As noted already, musically, there are shades of Stevie Wonder. However, vocals remind me very much of The Turtles (1965-71). Great track, Torrey, thanks for sharing.


My music may not set the world on fire but if it causes a glow in just one person's heart, it has all been worthwhile smile

Hi Torrey,

Terrific song!

Yes Ghostgum is onto it - I can definitely hear strains of Flo and Eddie (Turtles & Mothers Of Invention) here - not just the vocals - also the melody.

Plus wonderful youthful "Stevie Wonder" Chromatic Harp playing.

PG Music - this is what I have been "harping" on about in the Real Tracks Wishlist forum for the last 5 years - we need some real quality Blues Harp and Chromonica Real Tracks - both Blues and Jazz/Pop oriented.

I'm afraid I can't think of any suggestions at all for this song - it is all great.

Best Regards
Nigel

Wow. You most definitely achieved the high road of talent, Torrey. This is extreme, man. So many interesting pieces in there including (but not limited to) the harmonica and whistle. Every instrument masterfully played with such care for the ensemble. I agree with Ray that the harmonica sounds like Little Stevie, and you most assuredly have his older Wonder in there too. Well played, and you know I'm a huge fan of you vocals and your extended range.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Very nice intro (bit Sting feeling) and the harmonica sounds like Mr. Wonder joins in. Also bit Mr. McCartney here and there. But most of all, it's your sense of pop that shines. Nicely positive message

"Look for the best in those you know
Where they have failed just let it go"

the vocals, the mix and the band work very well. Enjoyed also the Motown groove and the use of the piano.

Man, you are on a roll these days, Torrey!

Love the opening piano. Harp sound good too, especially as you are playing it from your keyboard!

Nice changeup at around 1:42, very cool what you did there with the vocal. And love what you were doing on the bass during that section!

Excellent!

Firstly, Janice immediately commented that it sounds like a lost track from the Magical Mystery Tour album!

Your lyric reminded us of a Dylan (I think) quote that referred to people who had rather pull you down into their hole than come up where you are.

Your performances were most impressive. How nice it must be to be able to do all of that oneself.

We enjoyed the audio and the vid!

Hi Torrey,

Such a good song... It reminded me of the music I listened to in my childhood in the 70's... good memories brought back by your music...

You are a master of this craft!

I should say, Torrey's triumphant return to the forum. I'd almost forgotten how cool the harmonica can sound !
