Hi Dan,

Just a wonderful song! Nice melody, and your vocal never fails to move me.

Love the way you build the intensity towards the end of the song, very effective.

Very much enjoyed smile

This is a lovely song with beautiful vocals.

The arrangement fits the lyric very well.
The “less is more” saying definitely applies here.

It gives a strong feeling of serenity.

We’re sorry for the loss of your cousin.

Excellent song. Lyrically - short and sweet, and uplifting.

Your harmonies are always great. Love the '70s sound.

   Yeah, we're out of here.

Ha! laugh

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

Excellent production as usual, Dan.
I like the delay on your vocal and the lyrics are superbly simple and to the point.

Superior quality. Those two words would suffice for comment on any song you do, Dan. Here you show how flying away is the same as flying back. Very emotional vocal. The harmonies are absolutely breath-taking, and your lead seems the strongest ever. Superior quality throughout. Yeah, we're outta here.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Dan, Simply done with excellence. This is a wonderful tribute to the Trinity and your friend. Sorry for your loss.

Love the vocals with the 'fly away' backing vox!

So beautiful and regal. Vocals and harmonies and lyrics are all inspiring. I've come to expect no less form your work. The ending section is to die for--sorry for the choice of words, but it is fitting.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

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.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

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."
