Default An Invitation (Original Piano song)

I did post about this last year, when I had just started working on the piano part. I wasn't sure whether to continue with it. To be honest I still think the song is pretty meh, but that might change after I add cello and other instrumentation. But this is it so far. Any feedback appreciated.

I like this! Needs some variation in the arrangement that the cello can fix.
Waiting for the next mix

I like this a lot Dream, your piano and vocal could suffice, but you need to bring the vocal up and add just a touch of reverb to it, not much.

The piano is great, very well done.

Just lovely. I really like the melody - and non-standard chord progressions. Reminds me of Frank Turner meets Fiona Apple's "Idler wheel" era.

You have a fantastic character about your voice in the midrange. It's potential isn't fully maximized. Either: a.) bring up the vocal, b.) boost some mids in vocal c.) side-chain compressor to turn down the piano a couple of db when you're singing.

Nicely done!

I went back and looked at the mix, and I did cut a lot of the mids from the vocals. I think I was so worried about the vocals sounding on top of the piano I went overboard.

I'd like to give some constructive criticism - but it just sounds good to me, so there. Nice lyrics - some unexpected turns.

What piano is that?
