Hey guys...it was 15 years ago I retired from professional firefighting to become a full time pastor...I went from putting out fires to trying to start them in one fell swoop...the song I'm sharing is the first song I wrote after that move and my first solo recording (I had always had the comfort of leaning on other voices)...it's simple lyrically but captured my heart at the time...these are the original vocals but BiaB has helped me settle into the style I wanted for the song...this song is probably why I call my music "firesong"

Super vocal and outstanding lyrics

Great backing band

What's not to love!

Loved it.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

As usual, nice voice and pleasant arrangement. Good write as well.

Sort of a Glenn Yarbrough vibe with the arrangement and vibrato. laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Wow, I really like that "putting out fires to trying to start them," Dan. And I really like this song, too. Vocals have that high level of passion that grabs the listener. You sing with such conviction and authority; you must be a terrific pastor.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Very nice! Very well put together.

Your lyrics and passionate vocals go well with the country backing tracks.

As a fiddle player, I love the fiddle backing from RealTrack 1753. Guess I'll have to check that out!

You have a nice, mellow band to accompany your smooth vocal.

The song's arrangement builds like a slow burning fire and the ending is very good.

What a fine first song to celebrate your transition from firefighter to pastor!

Well done,

J&B

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.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
