BONUS CONTEST

 

I am thrilled to be able to offer “Wild Wind” as our Bonus Mix Contest song this month!  Written by Ottawa songstress Shannon Rose, and produced by Ottawa engineer Dean Watson (both close personal friends of mine), “Wild Wind” features lovely vocal layers by one of the best singers I’ve ever met.  Shannon is the definition of a “natural” when it comes to singing, and is a joy to mix.  In this song, the lead vocal is layered 6 times, which gives you loads of freedom to implement these layers as you see fit.  Despite the simple arrangement, this song really fills up my speakers when I play it and I just know you’ll all have this song stuck in your head for a while!   Good luck and enjoy 🙂

 

Song Info:  

Bpm:  128,  Sample Rate:  44.1 khz.  

 

Can I use this song in my mixing portfolio?:

YES!  Shannon has generously given you all permission to use your mix of “Wild Wind” in your mixing portfolio…what a score!  Please make sure to credit Shannon Rose as the songwriter, and also indicate that your mix is the unofficial mix….
