Our new song ECHO is a cowrite by me and Greg Johnson. Thank you Greg!
It is based on a true story. Greg is a wonderful writer, vocalist and producer.

The only BIAB track he used is the guitar solo.......RT 2448.
The guitar is Picked Acoustic from Native Instruments,
the Fretless is Iconic Bass Jaco from Orange Tree Samples,
and the synth pad is from Omnisphere.

Thank you for watching. We hope you enjoy it. Josie

Greg and I thank you very much! No, I'm not singing on this one. That's sweet to say.
I thought Greg nailed it and I didn't hear the need to be on there just to be on.

Sundance and Greg,

Wow, what a pretty tune. I’m such a fan of Greg’s soft, warm vocals (and they sing here) . . . but more so the wonderfully perfect lyrics he often writes—and here, a collaboration that shines on both your writing talents—impressive. What an excellent collaboration—outstanding work!

My best to the both of you,

Deej

A song like this is what happens when you pair two outstanding singer-songwriters.

Absolute magic…

Josie & Greg - you should be immensely proud of this song.

Beautiful touching cinematic story. Great vocals, liked those echos also. The arrangement is simple but very effective, even though I was waiting for some galloping drums to join in smile

This song reminded me of Michael Murphey's Wildfire back in the seventies. Great job!

A lovely mix of warm voice and sentimental story telling.
The high hat & tambourine parts seem rather too prominent and mechanical in my headphones.
Otherwise it's an arrangement and mix that well fit the narrative.

What a great job on all accounts. From the excellent writing to the recording that was exceptional. This is the kind of song a songwriter hopes to be able to write. It hits the heart.

Outstanding job.


My question from the song..... How did she end up in a wheelchair, or does it even factor into the story?


BTW: second listen is on good buds.... really nice soundscape.

I couldn't help but think about how this parallels the Michael Martin Murphy song Wildfire in so many ways.
