This is a very good demo that will benefit greatly from a professional studio and producer. I can imagine a few things I'd do with the mix to make the song sound bigger and more powerful without changing anything about the performances. Go listen to Stevie Ray Vaughn's "Couldn't Stand the Weather" and you'll hear what I'm talking about.

With the state of music today, I see this as a country song more than anything else. Once you get everything released, I'd get a radio plugger to focus on those sorts of stations as well as the CBC.  

And is there money in the budget to create a music video? Even a lyric video is better than nothing. You need ot be on YouTube.

Good luck with the project. Let me share this on my social networks, too.

Nice. Given the sound, production, and arrangement, this might be best for a country crowd, although I wouldn't ignore adult contemporary stations and perhaps the CBC. I'd also start making friends with music supervisors. This sounds like something that could end up in a TV or movie production.

Social media will be VERY important. Facebook should be one platform but think about TikTok, too. The lyrical sentiments in the song may inspire some TikTok videos. If they blow up, well...

I'll circulate this around to my networks. Good luck!
