Morning folks, here is the latest from Christiane and myself, a rock ballad this time out:

Armed Angels

I initially developed the backing track using BIAB, but ended up just keeping the bass.

The band:
Drums: EZDrummer
Bass: 1592:Bass, Electric, Pop16ths Ev 065[double time]
Guitars: me
Vocal, Piano, and lyrics: Chris

Piano is processed through Addictive Keys Rhodes, thanks to David Snyder for the heads up on that!
All guitars are going through S-Gear.
Mixed and mastered using various plugins from Waves and iZotope, I can give more detail on that if anyone wants to know.

Armed Angels (Christiane Spruit, 2017)

Don’t cry my heart
no world will fall apart
don’t cry my sky
be diamonds in my eyes
Letting lose
one picture of you
falling for two

Me, and my wing high
into the night
into the darkness of the sky
I will survive
I count on five
armed angels of the guide

Be still my beating heart
no world will fall apart
let us fill some wisdom to the jar
Musha rain dum a doo, dum a da
fading blue
all picture of you
fading blue

Guitar Solo

Dum Dai Da
let me choose
which picture I use
which picture I use

About the lyrics (from Chris):

For me the 5 armed ARMS (Wings)are Love, honesty, trust, kindness, and awareness
We often sacrifice our innate wisdom
and rely on guides and not on the spiritual Knowning from our childhood , BUT
little bits of 'magic' do happens precisely when you need it to happen.
AND I rely on that :-)

Feedback on the mix (or any other aspect of the song) is welcome, I'm breaking in a new set of studio monitors here, first mix I've done with them.
