I Kissed the Rain(feat Amy Caldwell)
wow great track very well composed and vocals were fantastic
Great cover of the original composition! I love how you added lyrics, vocals, and strings over the original composition! Great overall! Thumbs up!
Andy... I dont know how i missed this.. For me, piano light strings and vocals is a blend made in heaven... I will be my good honest self and say that this would not be my cup of tea, its a bit sweet for me, something from the stage or film soundtrack.. Its kinda to arty and i dont do plays or theatre , i mean no lack of respect by that comment, its my own personal taste.. Now from a music and collab point of view this is a song that im sure is rare on this site as a whole, rare in general.. Music backing is perfect, not a fault for me, great use of piano and light strings. Amy on vocals says it all, splendid performance, maybe the best i have heard on this site for sure, such passion,control and clarity... pretty much perfect!. Lyrics from Dawn are set in stone.. I sometimes dont go to much on over use of lyrics... I dont know many people (friends i know in person) who care for lyrics when listening to songs, im not a big lyrics fan and i dont tend to read into them either, esp if over complicated or two much in between the lines, this is not the case here... Its a fitting piece of lyrics meets music meets vocalists and the end result is pretty much a perfect song in its genre... I dont care how or what a person likes to listen to in music but no one can deny the amazing quality of this track.. You should all be very proud! ... Please excuse my early point in the review about being "To sweet, arty" its just my personal taste, not a critical comment of your work, if anything its my fault for not having as much as an open mind as i thought i had. I hope to god (wrong word) im not religious, that you guys are trying to put this out there somewhere!.. Maybe one of the best performed tracks on this site.... Its as if you were all in the same room when this song was recorded..
Not even I have anything to gripe about on this one ;)
Absolutely stunning piece of music complemented exceptionally well by a remarkable vocal delivery polished off by some top notch production.
Hat off to all involved accompanied by a deep bow. Superb.
Beautiful track, well done all concerned :)
beautifully written song with such pretty vocals, its so amazing how the piano and vocals sound so magical together, and wow really nice singing in the ending~
talk about skills on this one :) great job to all involved.
Stunning instrumentation and vocals. Nothing more to say but abp folks. James (Andy) you flash git...
This was a stunning piece as an instrumental but the lyrics and vocals have really lifted it.Great orchestration and the production's awesome.Class!
What a wonderful piece of music. Very moving and just so crisp in production. The vocals are beautiful as well.

Very nicely done! Can appreciate the time and effort involved with this song! Always enjoy your orchestrations Andy. Superb! enjoyed this!
This song combines so much talent. Dawns lyrics, Amy's beautifully delivered vocals and harmonies - sweet orchestration and production - Nice subtle reverb and balance between vox .
This belongs in a big Broadway musical!
Here the vocals are truly the captivating element, sitting in front of an emotional orchestral performance.
J.O...A masterclass effort of mixing i might say ;)
A truly great track,top marks for everyone involved...best colab for a long time
Amy outdid herself with a rich and even more emotional rendition...the music is superb in every respect and of course, Andy's production is superb...the original piano piece has been re[produced in a few dozen ways I believe but nothing comes close to this and I am filled with pride, as you all must and should rightfully be too!! Million thanks my friends!!
Elegant and classy this track finds a place for each of you in the halls of fame on MP3U.
Least I can do is nom this special little piece and say thankyou for sharing your gift with the rest of us.
Superb!!! Total Class from Andy and Beautiful Vocals From Amy Dawn With The Lyrics and James for the Mastering...What a Great Combination of Talent All into One Excellent Track Well Done to ALL Involved in this Project . . .
Oh yes, and Dawn's lyrics always capture a thought, feeling or moment in the most exquisite way...
Absolutely spendid by all involved. Amy has never sounded better. Mr. Oakwood always comes through big time. And Andy, I think I said it when you posted this w/o vocals I thought this was one of your best. Still feel that way.
This is a stunner indeed. Everything sits so beautifully and so elegantly recorded. -rl
Beautiful vocals..set for the West End!! a superb collab! well done!! RRRR
Anyone listening to this should give it a 2nd go if they don't appreciate the song-skills in this on the 1st listen. It is truly a very beautiful song and altho I hate doing vocal set up (even more so my own), it was a pleasure once I had started. Final mix (2 of amy's vox and one AndyF instrument track) took about 3 hours and was worth it, BUT take nothing away from the work AndyF and Amy have put in. It's awesome work.
Hi! I have been interested in music since an early age and now enjoy making tracks with the various software available.Such as Edirol, EWQLSO and my new addition, Miroslav Philharmonik which has some strings to die for, all this sequenced in Fruity Loops. I now seem to concentrate on composing Classical Soundtrack material. I also enjoy rearranging tracks in collaboration with the awesome talent on show here. Please stop by anytime and enjoy!The Chambers album has been accepted in the Music Dept of the National Library of Israel and hopefully will be added to the holocaust museum there.
My first album STAY with ME can be bought here: http://www.cdbaby.com/andrewfoyston and the latest BEYOND POLARIS at www.cdbaby.com/andrewfoyston2.
CHAMBERS is a trilogy in music with the Holocaust as the theme. All can be seen at www.andrewlfoyston.com I am also a proud member of DARD PRODUCTIONS a collaboration team www.soundclick.com/dardproductions whose members span across 3 continents.

I really enjoyed the melody. Loved the flute.... more than the bass :)
If I had my music software working, I could put my finger on it, but overall, just loved it!
Seeing as how I have been completely laid up for the past two doing doing nothing but honking into a handkerchief and spluttering like a man drowning (Ed: just a seasonal cold, tut tut poor reviewer), it seems appropriate that I should come riding back into the fray on orchestral wings. On second thought, after that sentence, maybe I should just go back to bed. Andrew Foyston (to give
Valour and Honour – Andy F- Essence Review
Well, what can I say? It’s a huge track and no one can deny! Huge sounds, very dramatic indeed!
I’ll try to skip the obvious comment of “this should be in a film” because it is obviously your intention Andy, to make your tunes fire the imagination and conjure up all kinds of themes and scenes to which your tracks could be impl
This an immensely dramtic and emotional piece of music. It's actually difficult to think where to start. The beginning is probably the best place.The haunting melody at the beginning truly sums up the emotion I can only imagine would be felt by prisoners being taken to the gas chambers. The bells add a nice touch, hinting to everyone that death is close. You can almost smell the mud and
Andy wondered if i was up for classical pieces when he submitted this for review! Good news is, yes I am!
I have always loved orchestration, as does everyone if you really think about it. Whes used to it's full scope, 'classical' music fully captures and envokes all the feelings and meaning that modern music strives to recreate in different ways.
Andy's 'The Last Galleon' does just that, the sus
T'was brass monkey weather time, three years ago, I reviewed a track called Di Da Mix (October 2003) and although liking its content (a little), disliking its production (even littler) and thoroughly berated the composer to get serious about his sound. AndyF (yep, you guessed it) obviously did because as many of you know, he's been in here plugging away ever since and btw, he did get s
Currently number one in MP3 Unsigned's Official chart, DHGC is a collaboration from two artists I have come to know very well, one for a very long time and one I've met within the last year. I first met AndyF a million years ago on another site when I reviewed his first track Di Da Mix (October 2003) and liked it. That hasn't always been the case, not because Andy isn't a good musician
Call me a sycophant if you like, I just don't care. I am bowled over by the undoubted talents of Andy F, and his latest track, Tears, is no exception.
Building his orchestration around the superb vocals of Amy Caldwell, the loving care and attention given to this crisp and professional work is evident from the outset.
It's always easy to eulogise over great songs and, naturally, personal taste c

I have known Andy for sometime now , and his music has improved over the last year or so, he has this wonderful way of creating excellent , smooth , Well Produced Classical pieces that have a lot of emotion and very moving ...Take a listen to " Memories across the sea "the string work , t
ONE NOTE FIRST - “Although I am not totally into classical music, this song certainly has made me become interested in it. Fantastic score, fantastic instruments, fantastic feel to the song – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED”
Starting off smooth, the piano work done at the beginning is great, although could have been uplifted a bit to hear it a bit better, but with all the other instrument work
