Daniel, you are master at Christian music!

As usual everything is perfect!

Not exactly my genre, but this is a nice song, and you really have a great voice.
Arrangement and mix are pretty good too, nothing to complain about here smile

Some really lovely vocals and harmonies. A real standout.

Nice song, (bit of an Elvis vibe) well produced.

Mellow harmonies? Check!
Relaxing arrangement? That too!
Lots of modulations? As promised!
Uplifting message? In spades!

Just as advertised. Really liked this! laugh

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

Yeah, I'd like to say everything that David did, but he says it so much better. Each modulation rises us higher and raises the praise. Your vocals are always the star of the show, and you write such good melodies for it.

Hi Dan
Once again such a beautiful song
The intro is excellent
Your vocals and also the background vocals are really great
Is that actually an acoustic guitar from BiaB or did you play it yourself ? Sounds great
Many greetings
Andi ;-)

Dan, once again you have delivered a professional product! Really love the vocals. They are done so well as are the background vocals! I also love that Cajun drum track. I've been eying that one for a while a will probably use it in the future. It's another great song!

Thanks, Torrey

I love that two-note hook right out of the gate: Hold on. I thought the modulations were very natural sounding, good work. Gorgeous vocals as always. Great job!

Daniel,

You sure know how to take advantage of BIAB...Great production and - as usual - the lyrics and vocals are amazing! Love the chord shifting. I'm not very theory savvy - was this a modulation?

Hey Dewey...thanks for your comments...modulation is basically a variance of somthing...in this song I modulated the key after the bridges...up a half step..to me it keeps opening up the song to a higher level...works great for songs with not a lot of dynamic range or to elevate the lyrical content...hope that explains it...I'm not theory savvy either...I just like how it sounds!...Dan

Thank you for the explanation and technique tip, Daniel! This will definitely come in handy on some of my upcoming songs.

Daniel,

Really good harmonies.
A conductor I know once told me:
"A really good song needs a modulation."
So, need I say more?

Lovely Dan.

Beautiful warm vocals, sweet lyric and the mellow backing tracks all work together so well.

Smoooooth mods.

Those harmonies would make the Gaither Vocal Band proud!
Have we mentioned them before? smile smile smile
