This is awesome. I kept expecting Brad on vocals but it kept grooving along with RDD. Love the drums and organ. Great mash. : )

This reminds me of Beck in a strange way. Maybe it’s the bass and that vocal. It’s nice, man.

Well done, sir.
Funk on!

Thanks a lot for working with my song (great job turning what is admittedly a forlorn wallflower of a vocal into a sweet pop track with some Beck-iness about it). It’s another perfect example of why I put my songs out here….I never would have conceived this treatment for the vocal….I like the moving beats & groove of it a lot. You did a good job cutting/moving the vocal around and (I think) repitching some syllables here and there. I did notice a couple spots where the sync between vocal and backing was somewhat off, but not so much that it affected the enjoyability. Thanks Jack!

actually, i cut up your vocal track but didn’t pitch shift anything, although i added a chorus effect to the overall vocal track.

working with your vocals at first made me think of ben harper, which i think alot of your stuff reminds me of. the challenge for me here was to create a typical “song” arrangement with what seemed to be more of a spoken word piece. obviously, brad’s stuff is well arranged and seemed to make for a good fit. the mix started out much more acoustic but kind of changed direction to a much more electric treatment with brad’s source as i went along.

also, i was channel surfing today and the movie woodstock was on and they showed richie havens singing “freedom (motherless child)” and i thought of you as the way he sang it and arranged it made me think of your ben-harper like vocal treatment.
