    Your instruments sound good, and you've got a pretty decent sonic palette overall.

    Not a fan of vocals. You sound like a charicature of country music.

    Aren't most country vocals a caricature of country music? Some are just more convincing then others.

    It is a good song; flows nice, with easy sounding levels and tones. I'm a fan of country music, so I've heard a lot of country songs. You have a good tone to your voice, but if you don't really talk with a drawl, it kinda shows in the performance.

    Good luck with your BCC, but from the looks of things, you are already on your way

    Hi guys,
    I really appreciate your feedback. Thanks!

    It looks like the mix is ok and that I have to concentrate on the vocals. We will re-record them. The singer's name is LeeAndrew Bray from Georgia. I can assure you that he talks with a southern drawl. I asked him to sing this without the drawl, he couldn't. so now we have a country rock crossover which is great.

    Thanks again!

    Robert

    Pretty nice song, very catchy, the way country should be. I like the singer's voice, but the voice seems to have a kind of trebly tone, did you raise the high mids? Very good drum sound. Overall, nice work.

    Hey Joey,
    thanks for your comments.

    Regarding the vocal track... that was recorded in Iraq (LeeAndrew is a soldier) and sent to me. It was a low-resolution MP3 file. It was a lot of work to make it sound the way it does now. I did use an equalizer to raise the mids. Good call. We plan on re-recording the vocals in a studio in a few weeks after he returns to the States.

    Thanks again.
    Robert

    Hey Maximusbs,
    you mentioned that it showed in the vocal performance that the singer doesn't talk with a drawl. Well, I just found a little video clip where LeeAndrew talks. You can judge yourself if that is a southern drawl or not:

    Robert,
    Really nice song with a pro-like sound overall.
    1) Vocal quality/presence could sit in mix better.
    2) Bass guitar needs more punch.
    3) Nice strong harmony vocal in chorus

    Hey Sgulley,
    thanks for the feedback. I really appreciate it.
    I'll work on the bass and we'll re-record the vocals.

    Thanks!

    Robert
