Yay! I wrote this one awhile back and just couldnt bring myself to do my usual solo antics on it and thought I could use some vocals.
I made a great friend here and many of you know her as well.
Linda Courtien is an amazing vocalist and I noticed her from the start. I am very privlaged that she did vocals on one of my songs. Thank you very much Ms. Courtien and I hope the rest of you like what we've done as well, this is not her usual style but she pulled it off exceptionally.
Ray La Veau-Guitars, Bass, Production
Mr Scott Rockenfield on Drums (loops)
And of Course Linda on the Vocals


And big thanks to Jdwyer for all his support and help on this one as well

Peace
Ray

I must admit, I am surprised. Happily so.
I never would have thought to hear Linda's voice took in this direction. Amazing!

Well done.

Hey guys. Ultra cool. New direction for the Geech lady..... liking it. Excellent playing Ray! Just a little comment on the production, the overall sound is distorted, cymbals distorted, is this right or just pushing the headroom a little too much? Love the overall ideas, the panning techniques! Love it.

Well I was fourtunate enought to be one of the select few to get a rough sneak peak... and I was blown away by it! And that was when Geech had only 1 verse done and only some of the vocal track roughly laid out. I knew she would drop a killer performance on a track that was tight and designed for vocals. And did she ever!!! We have had long discussions about her emoting and I think she really dug in and sang from her gut and delivered a great vocal performance!!!

Ray-- your production skills are outasight! I love what you did to this. You are THE man on guitars and bass ma brotha!! The levels are a little high overall-- but that's an easy fix...

This is a GREAT SONG!!! Period. No ifs ands or buts... Just damn good!!!!

Great work guys!

This rocks on so many levels as always your the master on guitar ray and geechi your vocals give it this different but very soulful air..

I honestly don't hear anything that detracts from production sounds good to me ( as I a metal guy I have heard worse... drums that sound like an underwater trash can being beaten with a chainsaw )

I like it. (wouldn't so no to jammin' again or doing something with ya myself smiley )

Well, get your riffs on! Heavy guitar intro and Geechi kind of doing the Alice in Chains thing. I like the fact you're not limiting yourself, Geech...that's going to pay off in spades down the line I think. Ray brings out the rocking beast in everybody, definitely! I'd really like to hear this in ProTools or Logic Pro for that "nth" degree of separation on the vocals. Just a "tad" muddy (really slight)...looking for a little more punch to match the guitar, EQ-wise, maybe. As it is--no complaints! I'm really proud to hear this quality rock coming from the ol' home computahs...am I right or am I right?

Let go of your anger
It binds you, confines you
Let go of your anger
It sees you, defeats you
Let go of your fear
If i don't get you, I'll try to
Let go of you anger
It sees you, and defeats you

If you were my own, I'd nurture you to health
If you were my own, I'd bring you back to life

Don't make yourself the victim
Don't let them ever win
So much strength inside you
So much there, there within

A very energetic intro. Geechi's sustained vocals are great. I wish the diction of the verses were clearer. It doesn't detract from the musicality of the work, just a personal preference. The guitar work is very good and compliments the vocal styling. Great job!
