Good stuff, Nigel, you have the perfect voice for blues I think.

Good "blues" write, and the band is right on the money. I like what you did after the harp solo, slick.

Nicely done, enjoyed!

Hi, Nigel.

As usual, this is pro all the way: the vocals, the lyrics, the arrangement and the band.

It's all there.

You've got that commercial sound down pat - sounds like it's right off an album.

And also - fun song, and I always enjoy listening to blues! smile

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

A cool live feel Nigel,
You've really treated the drums well...those cymbal hits hang nicely with the reverb/delay.
Excellent curation/arrangement top with a cooool voice.


Cheers

As far as Blues goes, that just about tops the lot.

Classic blues, fantastic choice of band members and Blues Harp slots in just so perfectly.

Bluesy what is bluesy, Nigel! Great job!! Excellent use of the blues harp solo. Did you pick and choose the sections in a DAW or directly through BIAB?

Would you be willing to post the lyrics on your SoundCloud link? I'm a visual person I guess.

Hi Nigel,

I saw you replied to my song (haven't read is yet) while at the same time I entered your song.
Still listening to it. so I stop typing further...

First impression; a lovely blues, surely a 'toetapper' as Scott said in his post.
Second impression is same as first one, only adding that I also enjoyed the lyrics. And the drums, and the percussion and the band itself and -of course- your splendid vocals. They are made for this music.

So altogether it's an A+++ (triple A).
You only have to tell me how you achieve to make the drums sounds so bright...

Have a very nice day,
Hans
PS: will read your reply in some seconds

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.
