I'm always convinced that the project I'm working on is my best mix ever...that either means that I'm improving my skills each time or I'm delusional (don't ask my wife) frown this is a remaster of a song my kids and I recorded for a project called "prodigal"...so...if you do...thanks for listening and commenting...Dan

Beautiful song. Super vocal. Excellent production and mix/master was perfect. Steel guitar was a really nice choice.

I like this. Nice sounding mix in the cans.

Well done. Amber's vox fit nicely. And yep... a good instrumental choice as well.

Wow, Amber's voice is so beautiful. You gotta be bursting-at-the-seams proud. Song and production is a great vehicle for her to soar. Well done!

Beautiful melody and changes. Amber has such a beautiful voice. Where does she get that? Man, you have so much family fun. It would be fun to visit you. After dinner we'd retire to the sound stage where the Simmons perform some real family magic. I am so happy for all of you, and so grateful for your sharing it with us. Always inspiration, Dan.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Marty...I have to confess that these vocals are recordings made several years ago...my kids live a ways from us now and when we get to see each other we can't seem to find time for corporate music...they think they have lives of their own! I seem to have trouble teaching my forty-something children new tricks!...I always appreciate your thoughts...Dan

What a beautiful voice, and you did a great arrangement to let the vocals and harmonies shine.

this is what irks me bout the music biz...

a lovely song like this should be in the commercial charts. my granny used to say 'artistic brilliance sometimes doesnt get recognised enough'.

this certainly is talent and artistic brilliance all the way imho.

only words...SUPERB IN EVERY RESPECT.

this song should be in the commercial charts with those great female vocs.

very best to you.

Best Mix Evaaar! wink

Ok, you already know it's a great song, and Amber does a knockout job singing it.

And I agree with floyd jane - excellent work on the piano (and strings)!

But... it feels like the drum and vocals don't always land on the beat at the same time. i don't know if that's intentional or not.

Anyway, lovely bit of music.

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

David...thanks again for your comments and thoughts...yeah, Amber thinks the same thing you mentioned about the beats....as per my posts these are older vocal recordings that I'm trying to marry to new instrumental tracks and sometimes the marriage has some rubs (as all marriages do :))...I may experiment with different styles (to improve the marriage)...Dan
