MamaThis song just got to me when I started playing it because my mom just passed away two months ago. My momma knows I'm walking with the Lord. I really miss her. She taught me so much over the years. Thank you for your words. She served the Lord all of her life including ministering to the native Americans for many years. Thank you again for your song. May God bless you and yours richly. DE
Unique christian balladHave listened to this instrumental based track a couple of times. A slow melodramatical song, but it´s worth listening. Brother Gene shows that some chords are enough for a good song. The lyrics coming from the heart and touching the soul. The unique vocals of the singer has a brilliant irish sounding vocal projection. This song isn´t complex. A soft accompaining harmonica as extra factor brings additional feeling into the song. The lyrics unleashes feelings in relation of the mother who passed away and tells us also about the revalation of believe. Good song from a very talented musician and overall impressive track for a self-produced recording. This ambitious song could played in some clubs. I´m sure you will also enjoy and likewise add it.
Mama I'm Walking With the LordHi there Gene. Quite a song you've got there; a painful but inspiring story. After listening to your song a couple of times, there were a few things that came to mind. Nice simple strumming with a touch of the harmonica. Although your voice is a bit shaky, it seemed to be a fit for the feel of the song. It could have been mixed a bit louder because I couldn't hear some of the words. Over-all, the sound level of the song could have been boosted; I had to turn my speakers up a bit so that I could hear it. ;) There were a few places where it sounded like whoever was playing the guitar and the harmonica wasn't sure of what note/chord should be played next, and as a result the wrong one was played. It is a small matter indeed, but some of the words that you have chosen don't match up with the 4/4 beat of your song. In a strange kind of way, I thought that the buzzing of the guitar strings in some places was appropriate for this song; indicative of what the Lord does when He finds each of us - he takes us where we are at and starts strumming the strings of our broken down and worn hearts. But after we give Him our hearts, He begins the process of renewing our hearts and lives - and the sound improves vastly. :) This is where I had a bit of an idea here that you may or may not agree with Gene. I don't know if you have ever seen a movie where there was a soundtrack of a song that was used at the beginning of a scene, but by the end a fuller arrangement of that same song had been played. I felt the same way about your song. To complete this as a project, I felt that it might be a neat idea to have someone redo this song with a stronger, but still gentle voice like yours, and a bit of an orchestral background to fill it out; then add it to the end of your song. Great potential for this song. :) In the end, I am positive that your mom would be happy and proud of you that you are now walking with the the Lord. Keep up the good work brother. Blessings, Trev. :)
My thoughtsFirst of all my brother I commend you for having the courage to write such an awesome song loved the song loved the message and tone of the song I pray your encouraged and that the song empowers you to continue on much love
TouchingGreat story telling and rhythm. Love the harmonica. Gives it a very down home feel in corporation with your voice. Sounds like you e been influenced by some down in the bayou blues singers

Brother Gene is a honest and simplistic artist with a sincere heart......well done! Donivan
bonita canciónBonita canción, me gusta su simplicidad y sobre todo como amante de la armónica, me encanta ese acompañamiento tan suave. Bonita melodía, la voz es mejorable, pero está correctamente cantada. En general me gusta, canción sobria pero buena. Nice song, I like its simplicity and above all as a lover of the harmonica, I love that soft accompaniment. Nice melody, the voice is improvable, but it is correctly sung. In general I like it, sober but good song.
