Description
I wrote this song about a fictional character in a book I wrote. The character and storyline eventually morphed into a completely different animal, but the song remains. I like this one. Not the final draft, of course, but I felt like posting something tonight...so...here it is!

Nice vocals
Really enjoy your voice. This is pretty darn good as it sits now. Vocals are a tad lower in some parts..I am sure it is intentional, I think a bump up would be perfect! I love it. Can't wait to see what the final will sound like!

The song remains
Lucky for us. As always, your performance is wonderful. A few beefs, but don't let's spoil it. Looking forward to the next version.

I love
coming across an MJs artist that I've not yet heard, especially when their voice is as gorgeous as yours. Shades of the wonderful Julianne Regan of All About Eve here. Fantastic vocal performance. Sure there are a few EQ and mix issues but overall this is a very accomplished and beautiful song. Faved.

Ha!
I knew eventually SOMEONE would like my drums! I just love them so much. Everyone ALWAYS tells me to turn them down...but how can I? They are just so great! Thanks for stopping by.

I agree with Tim
re the drums. They're right where they should be Natalie. Good job!

Of course, the real treat for these old ears is your angelic yet sensual voice. Beautifully sung as always!

You rock my friend!

Be well!

I think the lovely photo you used for your artwork would make a nice avatar pic.

Just sayin'...

love following the curving trails of your voice here, and the music calls to henry, wherever he may be. a sweetly emotional performance.

Hey...thanks!
I almost didn't recognize you...I didn't realize you had more than one profile. I guess Henry is an extension of myself in some ways. Interestingly enough, Henry is the former incarnation of Adam Gold, the main character in The Given. But anyway...thanks for listening. Glad you liked it.

Calchas...
Good idea!

you
get a bit more comfortable with the vocals as you go along ... as this progresses your voice reveals some real power and emotion and your range is very nice. agree with karen .. the drums to me are an integral part of this track ... so maybe tweek the vocals so they are a little more up front in some places. for dynamic maybe some added bottom line instrument. but all those words are just an opinion. what is clear is this is a great tune and your vocals are wonderful.

Somehow I heard the residence version and.. I dunno... fell asleep or something .. and missed the original. Beautifully soft and I like that it started out from a character in your book! What a way to go! Great voice Natalie.

Loving this, totally. The vocals are just gorgeous, and the drums complement them excellently, there's this sense of urgency when they're doing 16th notes that dissipates wonderfully when the vocals come in, and you really landscape the song with your voice. It builds brilliantly too, it's just a great great song.

great piece of work. i know what you mean about the drums, i like the juxtaposition with the glitchy tracks. did you filter them?
