Artist's Notes

 I started on the keyboards, with a guitar patch. Jim added rhythm, Lead and lap guitar. Shannon wrote the lyrics and created the vocals. Bryan added a bass line and helped with drums on earlier versions. Pete added drums which gave it a Live feel. I went through several mixes before the final version. Follow Your Heart was mixed in Reaper with final mastering in Sony Sound Forge. 

 

I want to send a special thanks to Jim and Shannon; They both made important contributions that made the song stand out. 

Thanks to everyone who played and contributed! 

Best Regards,

Mike Sanders

Follow Your Heart - Lyrics by Shannon Banister 2019

Baby come on inside I know you?ve worked hard all day long It?s time to take a load off And follow your heart tonight Baby put your feet up I?ll go and go get your favorite drink You don?t even have to think Just rest your weary eyes on me Dinner?s on the table And in a little while Your friends are coming over The ones that always make you smile Rest your weary head Here on my shoulder Let me remind you why We?re growing older together Baby I know you work hard all day Come and take a load off I?ll show you the way The way straight to my heart Follow your heart my dear I hope I have made it clear I?ve been waiting for you I?m so glad you?re here
