Well, I started to get disappointed when I read that you were handing over the vocals to someone else, but this guy is great!!! And so is the song! Pro stuff, deserves to be heard by many.

Nice vocal that reminds us of Michael McDonald and an excellent write and sax solo!

J&B

PS BTW, it would be cool to know what BiaB tracks you used.

Ah :-) This is vintage Greg Johnson. Yes, the vocal is stunning, etc. ... but your writing is spectacular, as always. That's what I usually focus on when I critique a song ... yes, great vocals, etc., once more, but what writing. It's like I could finally put the troubles of the day aside and breathe. Bravo.

You hit the mark of an 80s R&B ballad, especially that electric piano---can't beat that sound. This is one of the tunes I would have played on the air back in my radio DJ days in the 80s. Brilliant composition.

Greg,

Very beautiful R and B ballad which has a solid 80's feel.
Earl's vocals and harmonies are great.
Rhodes piano is very nice.
The chord progression is wonderful. (Maybe closer to your usual songs?)
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

WOW! You and Earl nailed the R&B genre. I'm late to the party and everything I wanted to say already has been said so all I can add is that this is air play ready! Really it is that good IMHO!

Greg,
A really good write- hits the genre mark in a way rarely heard here and the production is skillful with nice touches ( like the drum drop mid song).
I like the vocalist- technically near perfect and brings great feeling to your song... which I would also like to hear you sing!

Robert
