Pro General Comments: Hi John, I really enjoyed this listen overall. The song has elements that take me back to the '60s (in a good way) and some parts that definitely have that Pacific Northwest post-Nirvana indie pop vibe. My main concern with the song is that the title and hook is a bit overdone. That said, I really could hear this working in tv and film sync where positive, broad topics like this can really fill out a scene. The recording quality is outstanding, as are your players. The mix has a few moments where the bass and guitar fight the vocals, and the backing vocals come in a little hot, but not enough to do a remix, just something to be aware of in the future. You've got a unique and cool vocal approach which I also think will stand out in film and tv sync opportunities. Melodically it's enjoyable, and a very nice marriage of melody and theme. My only weak point is the lyric, which is just a bit general for me.

Quote From Pro: A lovely mix of Laurel Canyon melodies and Pacific Northwest indie pop, sung with an open heart full of hope.
