Hello my's been a while, but I just finished my first song since I totally revamped my recording system at home...I remember how much you liked my song "Hello Woman" and so I wanted to send you this one to listen to! This is the first song I have finished recording and rough mixed on my new iMAC system with Logic Pro 9...The software has a really steep learning curve and the reference book I bought to work through it is almost 700 pages long!!! But here is my first semi-finished effort called "As the Ice Around my Heart Began to Melt." Hope you enjoy it! Edward

Dano & Trish,
Another great song - "Anchor Me to Your Soul." I love the title line idea, and the whole song is very moving - lyrics, music and performance. I'd only suggest that the vocal could be just a little more up front (or the music a litle lower during the vocals) as it was hard to make out the words in a few places the first time I listened. This is one of the best showcases for Trish's pretty voice that you have posted. "She Only Cries When it Rains" is another. Overall, I always like the "feel" of your music.

Dano & Trish,
"Choices" - very pretty song. Nice arrangement too. I like the message that, after all, you probably wouldn't choose much differently. And, more importantly, you're making a statement that helps keep alive the idea that we are responsible for our own actions, something that is slipping away in our "entitlement" culture.

Dano & Trish,
Nice job on Gran Maw and Daddy's Hands. Especially Daddy's Hands. I had never heard that one before, or I don't recall it. Anyway, it's a nice picture of our Heavenly Father, too, isn't it?

Hello Dano and Trish. Thank you for your kind comments. It's always good to connect with someone else from the Hayes clan. It's true, just about every Hayes I know plays and/or sings some kind of music.

You didn't mention what part of WV you are from but my best friend and fellow Timberline Guitars artist, Paul Rice, Jr., lives near Charleston. He also has an AGC page.

I look forward to hearing Trish's song.
