Hi Dan
Although I don't know the first recording, I already believe that
you have managed very well to preserve the soul of the song.
Sounds really excellent
Very good work Dan
Many greetings

Very powerful. provenance preserved I'm sure. The song bounces along quite well with the modulation accents.

The lyrics and vocal performance were the stars on this one for me. Enjoyed my listen.

Cool mandolin, and a very uplifting song, Dan. As is your way, the vocals are impeccable. The key change was early, but very effective. Visually it's as if a whole group of others got to their feet because the were so oved by the sentiment. The second key change has them climbing a bit higher on the surrounding rocks. Excellent choices picking bandmates. Super song!!


Enjoy whatever happens!

Mac Davis, who I thought is/was a great writer, used to have a funny segment in his show where he gave a few examples of really bad songs he'd written. I'm beginning to think that you would never be able to pull that off in a show of your own. Have you EVER written a bad song? I love your music and your message, and the way you can consistently put them together is just incredible. I think you've got an anointing brother. I sure liked this one. If I had to provide an nit in this one, I thought that the backing track sounded a little hollow between the intro and when the bass comes in, but that's just me - and a very small nit at that. Thanks for posting it.

Dan,

This has that feel of one of the classic praise and worship songs that started being sung in churches back in the 80's and early 90's. And boy did you ever do a fine job on it! Everything sounds right in its place to me, and the vocals are what really make it happen! I enjoyed it! It's a great thing to see you keep churning out such high-quality songs!

Thanks, Torrey

It looks like composing such highly melodic songs comes very naturally to you. You sure managed to keep up a very high standard!

Excellent writing and great vocal (and backing vocal, I loved the highest range!).

Inventive modulations at 1:15 and once again at 2:24!

By all means, keep them songs coming :-).

Based on what I just heard, I'm not surprised the original song won an award. This version shines. I have always admired your gift as a lyricist and your vocal arrangements are outstanding. Like Babu, the first key change caught me by surprise and the song has a mystical way of drawing the listener onward and upward. Truly inspiring.

I completely agree with Torrey.

Every song that I have heard from should be on every gospel radio show as they are pro in every way and the message is loud and clear.

Super vocal, lyrics, backing band, and mix.

GOD blessed you with an abundance of talent and I am positive he loves what you are doing with it.

Loved it

I noticed this on your website:

..this is a re-master and re-title of the song "I Wanna Rise" which was an award winner in 14th Annual Billboard World Songwriting Contest

And... it sounds every bit the award winner.

As Charlie already said, bouncy pop with nice use of modulation.

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

Great production, loved the song. The key change was a slight jolt for me. But points for exploring new approaches. You've got a pleasant voice to listen to, and with all those harmonies, it was even better. Excellent work!

Hey guys...I am humbled by all of your kind, gracious and encouraging comments...I am a huge fan of many if not all you guys...I have learned so much by listening to your music and been inspired many times which has helped me immensely in my writing and production of the music I post...don't know about you but BiaB has opened a new world of arrangement and production ideas for me and listening to (far superior) writers and musicians has certainly sharpened my skills in music production and presentation...I am grateful...thanks again...my best regards to all...Dan

Somehow I missed this song...probably as a non Christian I normally don't feel comfortable judging Christian music.

Anyway, I listened to it and I'm impressed, you have a great and interesting voice and you write and sing killer harmonies.


Making bits and bytes sound good...

I agree with everything Charlie said - he pretty much said most of what I was thinking. I simply wanted to add the key modulation is so sweet! I think key changes infuse a sense of freshness and new power into a song, in most cases.

Really nice! Best to you ...

Alan

This has such a joyous feel to it and that is a very good thing.

Excellent vocals, band and mix.

And thanks for the interesting backstory regarding the production changes as you aged.

Well done!
