Pleasant easy on the furry ears tune, sounds nicely captured, mix woks well here, vocal may be just a tad to forward for some but your tune your mix.

Beautiful song Rex.  Your performance, particularly the vocal, is great, as are the arrangement and lyrics.  Excellent job!

I backed off the vocals a bit, I hope it is okay they sounded perfect in my ear buds but when I listened to the song through my big Custom speakers (15 inch woofers and radial horns) the vocal was way too forward as Wookie so helpfully stated.

So I backed them down a bit.

I hope it is better. I think it is better but I am not sure because it sounded great in the earbuds but earbuds have no good precision when it comes to placement of the main vocal on top of the music it takes big speakers to get that setting right.

Thanks again for the help! 

You do help a lot and inspire me to finish the songs rather than leave them with a few flaws that really do detract from the whole effort.

I also fixed some timing and pitch areas in the vocals. Thanks David, Wookie, Jack, Freddie and Kurt for the compliments and valuable feedback!!! :)

Really, really like this. It just washes all over you and is so very soothing!

Great voice. Wish I could write and sing like this.

That is a really nice comment Andrew, you can express beautiful imagery in words, you are better at writing than you may think. :)

 Best to you bro!

Hey Gary, thanks for the compliment!

The new microphone is 

Audio-Technica AT4040 Cardioid Condenser Microphone

https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002D0BQ8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I love every single thing about it.

The sound is very responsive and it is perfectly accurate (at least to my ears) in reproducing transients.

That was the reason why I went searching for a new mic.

My old mic was not giving me good recordings.

I like the screw that tightens the included shock mount, it seem sturdy and only requires a little bit of torque to tighten it firmly.

 and I like the included black velvet like bag that fits perfectly over the mic when I am not using it to keep dust out of the mic. 

I have the mic on a desktop stand, the stand has a weighted cylinder base and a pole that comes up out of it.

It is perfect for desktop recording! 

Yes, the reverb is a REmatrix convolution reverb on a parallel bus JPVerbs "rich ballad" patch. :)

Rex, you made Audio-Technica very happy, I suspect.  I've used the AT-4033 for years and have been very happy with it.  This song is beautiful, and sounds very pleasant over all my playback systems.  I hope that it gets the airplay that it deserves.

He Jack! The reverb is a REmatrix convolution reverb on a parallel bus using the JPVerbs "rich ballad" patch.

I used the ProChannel compressor and EQ and Neutron 3 in the effects bin along with Waves Vocal Rider.

I side chained the lead vocal so it would cut an impression out of the music tracks and sit better into the mix.

And,

Thanks Lynn for checking the mix on your systems!  It is nice to know this song is translating well across other speakers! I hope this song does well, I am switching to a more pop style for the time being. Maybe a more universal appeal never hurt. :)

Rex that's a beautiful piece of work. Truly stunning vocal - the clarity really cuts through and such a simple stripped back arrangement. I absolutely loved it and was reminded a little of some of those Eagles ballads. Top work all round fella. Andy
