Thanks Len.

And Casey, I'm the alternating cowbell diet - I only use it on every other song!

Hey, John. I'm listening on a cellphone speaker in a noisy room, but it sounds good. Enjoyable song. :D The only thing I hear in this lo-fi setting that might be worthy of attention is the background vocal levels might be too high in relation to the main vocals. Good luck!

John,

Sounds to me like it's in between genres. The distorted bass sounds like maybe you're aiming for "indie", but the vocals, especially the chorus harmonies, sound like vintage country. The bridge sounds kind of rock, and the disco beat on the chorus takes it in a seventies pop direction. Cool song, like all of yours that I've heard. Only you know what you are going for, and whether you've hit it. But I think it could be turned into Indie, Americana, or Country depending on your choices. Right now it is all of the above.

Just an opinion,

Vince

Thanks Dean and Vince.

And yeah, I was trying to create a genre hoping tune here, one that blends styles of music that I like.

John
