Hey guys...this is a stretch for me...it's an 80's sounding blues/rock ballad with some big drums (ala Phil Collins) and hopefully a hopeful message... the video is still in process but it is what it is at this point...so...if you do...thanks for listening and commenting especially on the mix...Dan

I love this song. Wow great composition, you are as good as Floyd Jane. Very impressive and you have a great voice. Awesome listening.

Great song, great vocals, great production. And a perfect video to go with it.
I would probably put a little less reverb on the vocals, but that's really nitpicking that can be ignored smile

Dan,
Very nice "big sound" ballad. Deep vocals, and excellent harmony changes. Good mix and listens well. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

This definitely has a big 80s feel. A very majestic sound. Superb vocal. Uplifting message.

Hi Dan,

Again a very strong composition with beautiful vocals!
it goes through marrow and bone, we would say in my country. And if that is the case, then it is very good!
I enjoyed it a lot, really a lot.

This is a great production in both the audio and the supportive video, Dan.

And it definitely has that 80's big and epic sound ... indeed.

It goes without saying that your fine vocals really beautifully interpret your fine lyric!

Firesong,

It might seem a stretch to you . . . but it sounds like an easy reach . . . which is to say outstanding. The production, vocal . . . the whole package works. Really like you use of the synths in the breaks. Good touches on the guitar fills as well. Terrific work!

All my best,

Deej

Dan, no matter what music genre you select you are one of the best gospel singers on the planet!

Loved the song
Loved the video
Loved the message

What an awesome video Dan. Your voice is perfect for this genre. Such a delicate delivery for a super backtrack. Loved the organ break. Well done.

Dan,
You have an excellent voice; this big ballad is a showcase for that and the positive message comes through.
I liked the production and video as well.
Very good work!

Good song Dan. This production really showcases your voice well. Most importantly your message comes across well both in the sound and in the video. Is there anything you don't do well?! I really liked the keys in this too.

SO beautiful. Whenever I need the Lord's comfort, I know I can rely on your songs to be an intermediary towards it. So well produced, so well written, so well sung. You are a pro. Bravo.

(and your voice is full and strong ... you don't hide, vocally speaking!!! BRAVO :-) )

That B flat chord, and its subsequent progressions, in the coda ... superb :-) Also, very interesting ending, in the minor key ... unexpected but beautiful. Seriously well done.

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?

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."
