In case you haven't figured it out...I write "faith-based" songs but occasionally one will come along and though "faith-based" it could be used in other contexts as well...a cross-over so to speak...I believe this to be one of them.

In 1995 I recorded an album with a band called Single Heart...this was a cut from that project...always liked the song and always hated the track so PtL BiaB came along and new track.

Well enough said...if you watch and listen...I appreciate your time and thoughts.

Loved this one Dan! The visuals really bring the song up to a higher level! This "crossover" tune will surely speak to a lot of hearts! The vocals on this are phenomenal! Nobody in this forum does background harmony on the level you do!! It's such a sweet flowing tune that is so easy to listen to. The song asks the question that undoubtedly leads the listener to one conclusion as to who the One is that they need to turn to! Appreciate your work! T

Excellent ballad. Really beautiful melody and touching lyrics. The instruments really fit the mood, I especially liked the cajon. Haunting vocals, great backing vocals also.

This is right up there with some of the most beautiful songs that I have ever heard.

This is pro all the way

Loved it.

Man, that must have been an amazing album by Single Heart if this one was nixed. Such a wonderfully (yes) faith-based song. Of course, your vocals are always top-notch with passion and feeling. I like the way the song builds with the voices. You added just the right touch of sound fx --loud enough to be a part of the production, but subdued enough to let the real magic shine through. Beautifully done, Dan.


Enjoy whatever happens!

This is quite beautiful. The vocals, melody, band and mix are all stellar.

The lyric video supports the song very well and represents that crossover aspect that you mentioned.
B&W was an effective choice indeed.

We’re glad you revived this song!

Janice and Bud...thanks for your thoughts especially concerning the video(you guys are masters at marrying video and audio) so I treasure your comments and I am so glad you enjoyed it...when I thought about remixing the song...I thought it would lend itself to a video presentation as well...I tried the color clips but it made it seem disjointed...B&W was perfect to coordinate the clips and give it the darkness that the song projects...thanks again for your comments...Dan

Hauntingly beautiful melody with a matching vocal.

Mix sound good here. A lush and rich sound, especially the BGV.

One of my favorites of yours.

Nicely done.

Your voice has a Raul Malo / Roy Orbison fast vibrato that fits this well.

Great song and a great message as well.

Everything was in it's place on this.

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.

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."
