Hi Nigel,
I like your song.
It reminds me the Rolling Stones with a wiser sound.
And I find this very pleasant !

Nigel, you are such a fun entertainer. Love the title and figured it would sound a lot like New Orleans. Classical might be the only musical genre not often performed in NOLA. Love that place and love this song. You pack the song with the perfect band, easy lyrics and melody to sing along with, and then drop in that versatile voice you have to produce the magic that is another Nigel Spiers song with engaging results.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Nigel,

I like this Bayou kick you are on lately! You do these so well that you are probably inspiring a lot of listeners to have a go at this style! Your vocals are on fire in this! Everything sounds perfect to me! Absolutely love the mix! Nothing out of place caught my attention anywhere in the whole production!

Thanks, Torrey

Nigel,

You have such a nice voice that fits perfectly in these kind of song. By the way, the song itself is fantastic, but I like your songs a lot!
Never been to New Orleans, but this makes me long for that place...

Nice day,
