This song is fantastic.......it...soars.

I love where the vocals are in the mix.

I love the song and your vocals are amazing, although I thought the drum beat was too loud and kind of over shadowed them in places. The song totally made me feel like I was
floating, so that's gotta be a good thing. I like the piano ending  ::Suzy::

It's a very polished piece on many counts, not least its production. I like how the main vocal sits above that lower register stuff in the verses, then there is intelligent thinning out of the sound wall before the very memorable chorus kicks in.

The build up around the 3 mins mark is very effective.

Yep, another great offering from your (potential)l hit factory. Good luck with it all as it would be great to see you break through.
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

Hello @Great Big Things , nice one! I love the expiriments with effects on the vocal
(thanks for posting the youtube vid explaining your vocal treatment for this track here:
https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/songwriting-ingredients/26/vocals-in-the-mix/3459/msg38928#msg38928)

Interesting soundscape you've created here, that was a pleasant listen!
I'm always trying to be helpful, but I have no other suggestion for you than keep doing what you do! Haha.
Ok one nit-pick: maybe there's a bit too much limiting/compression going on, but that's really all..

Well done!!
:mart:
I'm proud of this track, check it out! https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/dreams
