Are You On The Level? With This One, We Are…

Frank messages us and says “You guys should cover this song”.  Interesting.  I have a listen and I fall in love with it immediately and I said to myself, “We do need to cover it”.  The song features an upbeat tempo, some great guitar work, and KEYBOARDS…LOTS OF ‘EM!  So I said to Frank, “Only if you do the bass track” (remember he left the project to do other things), and he said yes.  The other guys were on board right away so we got to work.  Within 3 days of building the project file, it was already taking shape.  Steve really out did himself on this one nailing all the keyboard parts, which is what makes this song, Frank laid down a solid bass track, and Steve & Tom solidified the song up with killer guitars.  The drums took longer than I wanted, only because we wanted the perfect complimentary sound, so I went away from my traditional EZ Drummer2 sounds and started using SSD4 (Steven Slate Drums).  Steve really came through again on this, customizing a killer drum sound for the song.  All in all, this is probably our best cover song to date…I think I said that before, but for real, this is our best one.

Timing Is Everything, After All It Took A Long Time

**NEWS FLASH**  We broke our own record for releasing a new song, less than 1 week!  Ah who are we kidding… this song has been a project file for, I kid you not, 8 years!  Want proof, well here is a drum video I did 8 years ago from when we actually started this song.  It wasn’t until about 2 weeks ago we actually got back around to it and we re-did everything over.  Still it’s pretty impressive knowing our track record with recording songs.  The song is Time After Time originally done by Cyndi Lauper but recovered by Quiet Drive, and the re-recovered by us; we seem to do that a lot..think that is 3 for us now.  Can you name those 3?  Put it in the comments if you do.  We are starting to show some real talent here with keyboards, synth, and some strange ass effects.  Check it out and show us some love on Twitter.
