This was another really interesting song-writing co-write experience for me. I composed this song called Singin’ Along using BIAB. It was composed in response to a request for a song for an advert. They wanted a happy-go-lucky acoustic song about friends hanging out on a summer’s day.

Singin' Along

The lyrics are on soundcloud, real tracks are

RealTracks in song: ~1205:Bass, Acoustic, GypsyJazzBallad Sw 110 ('A' Only)

I took the song to a friend of mine who is a professional singer-songwriter and asked her if she wanted to collaborate on it. She has a lovely voice that I thought would be perfect for the concept. She agreed and here’s what she came up with. The name changed to Blue Skies because she recommended something with a image in the title. Absolutely wonderful what she managed to do with the song and an excellent lesson for me! Now If I could only sing like that!!!
