ARE WE LOVERS (Anymore ?)

Recommended Posts

Cool tune - sounds like it came from the heart. I liked the vocal, and the mix sounded pretty good - maybe the bass could come through the mix just a bit more.

Whoa, great slow one. Vocals and bgv's especially, quite good. Some spots, the foundation chords clash with the melody, maybe 1:25, some synth holdover might not be in line with the melody? I dunno.

 

The drums seem a bit subdued in the mix, maybe somehow make some room for them.

 

But I thought the song itself was killer. Those bgv's particularly add a ton to the vibe.

 

cheers,

-Tom

Many thanks for taking the time to listen Tom, I do take your point about the drum track ... in fact the whole song needs a kick up the proverbial to make it work.

I often do the bgv's real time because it feels more 'real' although with this song I am using a Voice Live Touch I've hooked into my Daw ... basically it's the lazy gene, and instant gratification I blame .....

Thanks again for the compliment on the song though 9_9

Best Regards

Steve

Hi, Steve,

You've got a beautiful romantic ballad here with excellent writing and playing, and the heartfelt vocals were really outstanding!😀

Great job on the well textured arrangement and the mix is clear, wide and totally pro sounding.

Dynamite work, Steve, top notch all the way!👍

Have a good one,
Bob

Thanks for listening Bob.

I am knocked out with your comments, so thanks for that. I am a songwriter first and there a some really great musicians here that could easily do a better job,  (you included) so it's great to know someone enjoyed your work ... warts an'all 😏 

Best Regards

What a lovely song Steve.  Really like your production choices too, the ethereal backing vocals and the cool synth lines, just right.

Another nice song well created, you are aware the mix needs a little attention but it still sound OK as it is.

Nice tune.  Your vocals are great!  You have a Phil Collins/Marty Balin quality to your voice.  The melody is something that could be quite catchy with the right exposure. Drums could be brought up a bit.  They sound a bit "foggy".  Maybe that's how you want them to sound if you're looking for a "dream" quality, which would work here too.  Overall a great effort.

Thanks guys and your right about the mix ... I'll try out bringing the drum track up and a little fairy dust just to see how it sounds.

Many thanks for the comments

Really, really good song here.  Very pro sounding.  Very strong vocals that are, like everyone else said, immensely sincere and heartfelt.  I could hear Sting doing this.
