Lovers' Battlefield - Video
(lyric included)

Audio Only

After viewing the great Tom Hanks/Steven Spielberg "Band of Brothers" series somehow the battlefield imagery and verbage worked their way into this song. Also for some inexplicable reason I attempted to write it with no pronouns - an interesting exercise smile Tom Adams joined in with some fine guitar and Janice added percussion.

Another "two verses, a chorus and we’re outa here" production smile

Thanks for taking time to listen and we always welcome your thoughts!

J&B

Janice: vocal and percussion (cajon on choruses)
Tom Adams: Lead guitar and fills. Thanks Tom!! www.tommyadamsmusic.com
Bud: audio/video production / RealTracks / RealDrums / mixing / mastering

For those of the technical persuasion:

Vocal: Rodes NT1 mic via Focusrite Scarlett 212 to Logic Pro X
Cajon: Stereo via Rodes NT1 mic and MXL mic and Scarlett to Logic Pro X
Mixed in Logic Pro X with track effects and mastering from Ozone
Advanced 7, Alloy 2, Nectar 2, Neutron and EMT 140 plate reverb sim

Hi J&B

What a stunning lyric - the singing and music create a strong support for the message . And the lead guitar work is spot on. This strikes me as a truly innovative form.

Janice and Bud (and Tom),

Wow, great sound right off . . . and that lead guitar (Tom, I’m assuming) just perfect; haunting. The lyrics are poetic and the vocal really accentuates the mood throughout. Well done, all! Great collaberation—good luck with this one.

Kind regards,

Deej

J&B&T,

Love this production. Like all the musicians took the time to hit just the right spot...and stay out of the way the rest of the time.

...leaving the spotlight where it should be - The Star - the Voice!!

Tom's guitar is sweet.

Great mix. Top shelf all around.

Thanks, Tom is really good at nailing the exact feel for a song with his guitar. Our many collabs with him over the years have been a lot of fun. We appreciate your listen and comments!

I dunno guys. I like yall's stuff, but not this one so much.

The lyric melody is reaching and stretching for the timing too much for me. I get that there is some artistic effect in that approach, but imho, they reach too far and slide around excessively in an effort to tie back to the beat They sound out of sync in several spots. To me.

Love yall. Don't hate me. Just being honest.

Marty

No hating! Janice says it's just the way she often hears our lyrics. Another member of this forum once referred to one of her vocals as "vocal dancing." He didn't like it either. smile We call it bent note singing. I kinda expected somebody to not like Janice's percussion...so the vocal thing was a wee surprise but we always respect and solicit listeners' honesty.

Cheers,

Bud
