Never Back Down
on: August 25, 2016, 10:41:57
Hi everyone,

Please allow me to share a song of mine, called "Never Back Down", which was recenty released:



It was written as a response to the terrorist attacks that have been going on lately.

Unfortunaly, only 3 weeks after recording this in my home studio, the singer (Sander Deroo) lost his life in a terrible working accident. We released this as a dedication to him and all benefits are going directly to his wife and daughter.

I hope you enjoy the song.

Feel free to let me know what you think about it :)

Thx

Andy (Belgium)

Hello Andy,

Thanks for sharing the song and the story surrounding it.  I hope that it does well and that your friend's family benefits from its success.

It's nice that you finished and posted the song. It would have been my loss for never having heard the song and the singer. It's really very good.

Thanks to everyone for your nice and warm responses.

I am very glad you all like the song. It's doing well on Belgian radio also (although we still need some sales to get it into the charts).
How I would have liked to see Sander perform it live, but faith decided otherwise...

It won't bring back my friend, but at least his talent is being spread world-wide...

Cheers
Andy

Awesome song @AndyV
Excellent mixing and production, and fantastic musicianship by your band.  ::heart::
Definitely the kind of rock power ballad that sounds great performed live and loud in an arena.

Thanks Ash.

Actually it was mixed at The Globe, one of Belgians best studios and the final mastering was done in Abbey Road Studios in London.

I honestly hope that some rock bands will pick up the song and play it live some day ;)

Thanks for the kind words, it helps a lot when I read how the song has an impact on people.

I guess that's what music is supposed to do: touch people in good times and (unfortunately) also in bad times.
