Hello Dewey. You really rocked it up with this great band choice.
Well done on the tight vocals, melody, and lyrics.
Very well done mix. Regards to you. Rob4580

Chugs along nicely.
The 1st couple of vocal notes were slightly weak but you sounded far more certain and solid after that.
The sax...reminds me of far too many bland MOR hits from the late 70s and early 80s but that's a minor thing - it could, just as easily, have been slide or something else.
Harmonies are cool.

Thanks for the constructive criticism rayc! I definitely hear what you're hearing with the weak notes in the first verse. I have trouble with putting strength on the lower end of my vocal scale but I agree, I could do better here. Also, I like your idea with mixing in a slide guitar or similar in place of the sax. Will experiment with different options.

Na zdrowie!

Dewey

A real toe tapper. Your vocal was really good, as was your lyrics. The backing tracks were great and that sax was a brilliant idea.

Super song.
